COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A surprisingly balanced double IPA. A pirate without the use of his eyes is a bitter man indeed. And this Blind Pirate’s bitterness is only matched by his boldness. He doesn’t care if you enjoy the citrusy, spicy combination of hops on your tongue, the faint herbal notes in your nose, or the exquisite balance of caramel malts looting your senses. The Blind Pirate is a bold, bitter ale not for the weak in spirit. Just don’t ask him if you can borrow his sight glass. He gets offended.

Decent enough dips. Biscuity body with citrus and floral hops. Thick mouthfeel. Heavy.

This is the 3rd type of Blind Pirate that I tried, including the regular and blood orange. I liked this better than the regular, but maybe not as much as the blood orange. The extra hop/IBU balances out the malty sweetness,....which I think the regular Blind Pirate could be balanced a little better, so maybe this is what it needs. Good citrus and bitter in there. Not top notch quality but maybe towards the bottom of 2nd tier for this style. Cloudy darker orange to copper appearance. I would sample this again.

So far in my limited experience this is the best IPA I've had. It's just another example of Monday Night making great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours dark and cloudy amber with a finger of light tan head. Aroma is sappy resin citrus with toasted sweet malts. Flavor is bitter and engrossing on the palate. There are sweet floral notes but the majority is consumed by the bitter hop character. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ed5388 (3171) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - MAY 11, 2015
12oz bottle of expired beer thanks to some douche bag on HBT!!! Pours an Ice-T brown color with a small beige head of foam. Aroma of rotted citrus and loads of malty expired IPA! Taste is herbal, malty, lemon ice-t, and pine. Taste is better then the aroma, but once again an expired beer from a shitty trade!

slight simcoe aroma. Dark orange with yeast floating. Kind of a harsh flavor with a little bit of aftertaste.

Tmoney99 (13338) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 13, 2015
Bottle shared by Dr Silverworm. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy citrus hop aroma. Medium to full body with slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration.This is a solid beer.

Bottle. Big citrusy nose, and a bit stinky, rude fruitiness. Bright but hazy copper color. Caramel, tasty hops, some overripe fruit, sugar. Some balance in finish. Medium body. Not quite a caramel bomb... but almost. Very nice aromas.
