4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hoppy biscuity aroma. Roasted malts and hops. Surprising how high the abv is. The alcohol is well hidden below the heavy malt a piney hops. Cool beer.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
8.5%ABV. double IPA
Poured out of the bottle a deep rich Amber. 16°SRM.
Nose has sweet tangerine, orange, mandarins.
Mouthfeel is syrupy. Deep malty palate with slightly disjointed transition to hops, alcohol and then the finish. The malt flavors are predictably toasty, nutty like pecans, walnuts, graham cracker. Palate is hefty and there is an umami roundness to it.
Finish is bitter, herbaceous, piney and resinous. Aggressive hop palate. Hop balanced. Overall, vested with great ingredients in oodles, just a little hamfisted in general to be truly good. I appreciate the effort! Love you guys although Two Captains won’t be making it to the favorites list.

Bottle sample at a tasting. Thanks Shmupi. Orange golden with a big head. Smell of stale fruity hops, orange jam and caramel. Sweet-sour with some fruitiness and caramel, strong hops bitterness, a bit harsh and not balanced. Medium-bodied, not fresh enough.
