3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, shared with Mike. Orange amber with sediment tailings, huge gold-tinted head. Aroma is sweet with perfumey fruit, lychee and pear. Sweet candy-ish malts, lightly floral perfumey aromatics lead into a very bitter finish with hints of spice and yeast. A very nice change to try an IIPA with some Euro hop varieties.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Strange brew this one...
Appearance: Nice orange/amber color with sizeable layer of white foamy head.
Aroma: I’m clearly picking up a bit of yeasty funk... quite strange.
Taste: DEFINITE and STRONG funky/sour flavor dominates. I’m not sure if this is infected or old (it was a gift), but it certainly tastes nothing like any other DIPA I’ve ever had... very odd. My girlfriend LOVES sours and she is thoroughly enjoying this one...
Mouthffeel & Drinkability : tart flavor makes it a bit hard to drink for me, but the mouthfeel is nice - somewhat smooth & creamy.

Tap. Poured a orange color, small head. Aroma was grapefruit notes, hops. Flavor was hops, malts, notes of caramel, slightly tart finish. Another beer that hid the alcohol quite well all things considered.

UPDATED: DEC 1, 2010 Location: Draft at Capital Ale House, 11/26/10
The nose is caramel malts, fruit, some funky yeast, fruity belgian yeast, a little wood
Appearance: It pours a hazy amber color with a wispy white head and some lace
Flavor:The taste is malty/fruity sweetness, some spiciness and funk to it
Palate: Medium bodied with a somewhat creamy feel to it, also a little sticky, medium carbonation
First off, this was not a Double IPA, but it was a decent beer. I enjoyed it, but it wasn’t outstanding. It wasn’t worth what they charged for it either.

Labeled Winter Coat Double IPA on tap. Nose and taste sour IPA. Nose tart currants. Tart sweet in the mouth to hoppy goodness to pure tart. Interesting mix in the mouth. Tasted closer to a sour that a DIPA. Nice brew.
