This is a delicious double IPA. Large amounts of hops make this a strong IPA which is what a double IPA should be.

How things change so fast. Got this today in the CAN! since it has been some time seeing these on the shelf and did not have one of these tan drab cans in my collection. I had tried this once before and knew that I liked it from the colorfully labled bottle back in September 2011. Checked my notes on my personal database and yes I did give this brew good marks back then and have that bottle sitting high up on my display of beers. Sadly the CANS did not live up to the high alpha acids of a double IPA and yes there was the metalic taste and aroma. Still good brew with the nice pine, citrus, hop flavor, but nowhere as good as back in 2011 from the six pack of 12 ounce bottles. From previous info would have givin this high marks but yet another case of loss due to getting it in the CAN!

Vestlake (144) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - AUG 11, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 13, 2014 Pours an orangey/amber color. Aroma is pine/resin hops with a little malt. Taste is mostly pine hops. Goes down smooth and you really can’t taste the alcohol. Pretty good IIPA.

Bottled 355ml. -Finally! The most expected beers have arrived! Well, the story goes like this - my friend "Dragan the Drot" went to live to USA, Salt Lake City, so I’ve asked him to bring me some Wasatch beers when he would come to visit Croatia. So, he came here some four years ago, but have brought no beers. Then, a week later, his girlfriend came too, and he said she was bringing the beers. But, again no beers - they said she was thirsty and drank them while waiting for plane to catch....hmm?! Some time after that, he has sent a package - I though this is it, but no, he has sent a bottle of tequilla! (very good tequila but never mind). And now, after six years of waiting, my friend has come to visit again and this time he has brought a bunch of Wasatchs beers plus one Squatters! Heeeellll Yeaaahhhh!!!
Now something about beer itself...Pale amber coloured, small off-white head, slightly sweet fruity hoppy nose. Toasted malt, caramel, and fruity hoppy with pretty strong alcohol presence. The finish is dry, moderate bitter and alcoholic. Alcohol should be more balanced but anyway decent brew.

Questionable a first taste, the more you sip the better... very sneaky. Medium malt, citrus hops on back of tongue, thats unusual... mouthy finish... nice high alcohol hidden in malt camouflage. Touche’ to those Utah boys!!!

PorterPounder (5538) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 9, 2014
Las Vegas, NV - Total Wine - Summerlin - 12 oz can. Pours a murky light amber - not unlike a jar of honey - silky off-white head. Fresh fragrant floral aroma, hints of pine cones. Bold, fruit forward flavor with plenty of hoppy fresh grapefruit bitter notes, some nectarines, a bit of maltiness with some maple syrup like sweetness. Thickish mouthfeel. Pretty solid overall.

Tap. Solid double IPA. The flavors are pretty mild, but the alcohol content is evident and makes this a sipping beer. A tad on the sweet side for my tastes.
