Draught at Terry’s. Pours a slightly hazy amber color. The aroma is a muted for the style and quite malty. I do detect some weak grapefruit with caramel. The flavor is tannic and malt heavy. Citrus flavors are trying to come through but only really show up in the finish. The mouthfeel is reasonable and suits the abv well. This beer tastes nice enough but it really lacks the depth I would like from a IIPA. I’m finding a lot of brewers in the south that make a IIPA don’t capture enough hop character. I’ve had plenty, plenty of standard IPA’s that pack more punch than this one.

Pours out a nice coppery color with a decent off white head. Aroma is very hoppy and grassy. Flavor was nice and hoppy, but i was wanting something much more bitter than this. Other than the lack of hops, i thought this was a fine brew.

JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - SEP 25, 2007
Sampled at Brewgrass 2007. Clean light copper-orange color with very little head. A little pine in the aroma, not very intense at all. Thick palate. Hop profile not impressive or strong for even an IPA. Overall neither the taste nor the aroma was up to par for even a decent regular IPA.

brentfeesh (1207) - Gadsden, Alabama, USA - SEP 24, 2007
Sampled at the 2007 BrewGrass Festival. Clear copper pour. Spicy hops with a hint of grain in the aroma. Very light flavor for a double IPA. Orange and passion fruit and caramel grains. Not bad in any way, but very mild. Semi-sticky and coating mouth feel. Fair, drinkable, just not what I would think of as a 2IPA.

mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - SEP 24, 2007
Pours a clear, copper color with a medium off white head. Mild, sweet hoppy aroma. Pretty boring for a double IPA so far. Had a definite malty presence as well. Wow, extremely mildly hopped to be called a double IPA. Quite sad actually. Seems to have more malt than anything. Barely a regular IPA in my opinion. Not what I was expecting at all. They need to not be so shy with the hops next time around.

Suttree (4902) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 24, 2007
Kind of a session Double IPA, in a way - very drinkable. Sweet, toasty notes and piney, resiny finish. Surprisingly smooth, although a little rougher on the finish. Sampled at 2007 Asheville Brewgrass.
