28/12/2012 Brasserie 4:20 (tap). Bevuta al Pizza Port Tap Takeover. Ambrata scarica, limpida, schiuma bianca leggera e persistente. Al naso fortissima nota di luppolo, agrumata, fruttata, resinosa e pinosa, leggermente agliacea. In bocca è una bomba di amaro, con una struttura di malto presente ma non eccessiva a bilanciare il tutto, molto ben fatta. Corpo medio, carbonazione corretta. Double IPA estremamente luppolata, molto buona.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the brewpub. AKA - Poor Vato. Poured a cloudy gold with white head and lacing. Aroma of citrus, pineapple, pine and roasted malt. Good pineapple and citrus flavors with a lot of roasted malt, some caramel. Good but a little too much roasted malt for DIPA for my preference.

Growler shared by drabmuh. Thanks Matt.
The beer is pretty clear, appearing a copper orange hue. The head is thick and creamy, holding steady at a half inch thick. The aroma offers hops, pine, alcohol. Bready malt and biscuits in the flavor, with pine and alcohol. Substantial malt character throughout. Medium full bodied, with appropriate carbonation. Overall, pretty good, though too malt forward for my liking. Alcohol could be masked better as well.
