It does have the hop aroma, now if it only had the hop flavor. Plenty of bitterness and some malt to stand up to it. Bodyís not bad. Long bitter finish. Kind of two dimensional.

Pours a very cloudy yellow-orange with no head. Aroma is citrusy and almost a bit soapy. Flavor is a nice balance between sweet and hoppy. Oily mouthfeel and bitter finish. Strong contender.

Tap, restaurant, Wisconsin Dells. Citrus resin aroma, bright hops. Honey flavour, then lime hops and a long mild finish. Not sure it was a double ipa or not. Nice either way.

This is probably the best Sprecher brew Iíve had to date. Decent DIPA with a buttery caramel flavor. Malt is balanced with hops. It would be a 4.0 beer if the flavor was stronger - itís a bit on the watery side.

Aroma is under arms but the appearance is perfect. Taste is probably like licking an underarm after deodorant on... aromatic on the tongue bitter unpleasant. good on palate with some biting notes.
Overall not a dumper but not good.

Pours a clear copper color with a small white head that diminished pretty quickly. Average spotty lacing on the way down. The nose carries bread and caramel along with some light citrus and pine hops. Quite boozy as well. The flavor is mostly bready with a bit of hop flavor and also quite a bit of booze. The booze is finally balance in the mouthfeel with a pretty good amount of bitterness. Medium body with average carbonation and a dry finish. Decent enough, though not something Iíd grab again.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle @ Jungle Jimís / Eastgate OH --- Hazy amber brown color, solid rocky 2" ivory head, globs and streaks of lace. Aroma of malt and hops. Taste is somewhat sweet malt that adds strong floral hops on the swallow, both parts moving through a medium finish. Sprecherís claim of "massive" hop bitterness isnít backed up by the brew, but it is a solid traditional IPA.
