Nitro tap at the brewery. This brew was a little too hot with the alcohol. I was surprised that the heat was so easy to detect. It was 8.5% but I could have believed it was 10+ could be the Nitro tap letting more of that through. The hops are there for a double IPA but I didn’t get the malt backbone I was epecting. I’d go for their smoked amber over this DIPA next time.

Elwood (3300) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - OCT 17, 2014
Serving: Draft at Texacali Taco & Tequila Bar. It pours a deep red color with a thick light tan head. The nose is on the malty side for the style. Maybe a little pine in there. The flavor seems to be weak on the hop side with just a little bit of piney bitterness, but plenty of caramel, toasted malt, and a touch of booze. Not a bad beer by any means, but certainly not an IIPA.

SpringsLicker (3156) - Tennessee, USA - OCT 11, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy, dark amber/light brown with a generous off-white head. Light malt aroma. The flavor is lightly sweet. No hops in the flavor or aroma anywhere. Nothing going on here resembling any sort of IIPA. Thin. A Strong Ale of some sort?

Draft: this is a great double IPA...nice big malty flavor to balance out the hops. This is a great beer, and very well balanced. Lots of flavor.

Split a 22oz bomber with some co-workers that I brought back from NC over Labor Day weekend. Poured a dark bronze color with a small white tan head. Aroma was some heavy resin notes, pine, boozy caramel notes. Flavor was nice heavy malt notes, some caramel, resin, pine. Herbal. Pretty tasty.

On tap at Honey Tupelo Cafe. Translucent dark amber with small beige head. Aroma is grapefruit hops, medium body, medium carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is grapefruit, some resin, a little herbal hops, and long bitter finish. Not one the best for the style, but not bad.

7/6/14. Bomber. Pours a dark copper with minimal hard and lacing. Agree w jrob that it tastes more like a barleywine. Very sweet and malty for a DIPA. Gives some of the the mouthfeel that high ABV gives but the hop forward I like in a DIPA is lost. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Bestway. Bordering on barleywine. Syrupy sweet with a caramel and candi sugar malt profile. Toffee flavors as well. Herbal tea aromas. Finish is sweet caramel. Need more hops please.

Bomber from 201. Deep amber, slightly hazy. Aroma is mostly caramel malt with floral hops, pomegranate, clove in there as well. Flavor is overly malty for this style and no hops stand out. Smooth alcohol warming and medium bodied. Overall this brew missed the mark as an Imperial for me.
