Lacking nothing, at ten percent alcohol by volume and 95 International Bitterness Units, the Decadent truly represents all that is self indulgent when it comes to drinking beer.

22 Oz waxed bottle poured. Purchased at Molly’s near Denver. Very nice bottle here. It makes a huge difference in my opinion. Pours a clear golden color with a ton of foam head and lace. Awesome double IPA here. Sweet in flavor. Caramel forward flavor, with a heavy hop character. Well balanced. Easy drinking with no bitter finish. Very well done.

gunnar (6918) - Sandnes, NORWAY - SEP 17, 2015
Bottle from The Drink Store, Dublin. Enjoyed with the Crete RB team at Antons place, Chania. Pours hazy golden with a small creamy tanned head. Aroma is quite malty with lots of piney and resiny hops. Taste is very bitter hops, resiny and piney with a lovely dry minty finish, unbalanced but good brew.

Scouser (316) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 7, 2015
Pours a hazy orange amber with no head or lacing. Aroma of orange peel and malt. It’s very boozy with orange zest and a little floral characters. It’s ok.

Bottled. Golden copper. Big hop front. Has a big floral spice hops. Not much of a malty aftertaste but a big hop taste.
