UPDATED: JAN 7, 2008 I got this in SD over the summer and forgot I had written my description down on paper. I just opened my suitcase and found it. Pours a rich, creamy apricot color with a full, creamy froth. Superb hangtime with a lasting, sticky lace. Strong aromas of penetrating hops and thick, choking malts. Full nectar with expansive residual effers that create a nice, creamy texture. This brew really smacks me in the face w/ its hopsy bitchslap affect. Strict, cutting, brutal asprin citrus rind pummles the pig fat goopy malts. The malt characteristics have nuances of caramel, blackcherry, and cotton candy. Double Dog is the bomb man. Musculin, burly, robust, and unforgiving yet generous. If grizzlybears drank beer, this would be it. The asprin really digs in and sweep the fat off the floor but it doesnt let go. Like a full nelson. It feels like my tongue is calcifying as I write. The best thing is that its not too grapefruity. It drinks extreme but totally in balance. The finish is long on flavor and bittered beyond belief with its asprin talons. Id call it a DIPA.

why explain what is obvious (to non-macro, non-snob micro) appreciators of brew? this is stellar stuff at all levels. hopheads and opposite will find much swamp and jungle to explore in this heady brew. remember: its virtually 12%...if you like bourbon, focus on the finish.....

12oz bottle vintage 09ii, they really dialed this batch! Ive been a big fan of DD for many years but this batch might be their best yet. Awesome color, head and hop aroma. Very balanced and you would never know it was 11.5% until you downed a few :) I would love to try this batch on tap. However, the 09FF batch was TERRRIBLE!! I dont know what they did but they went from their worst batch to their best back to back!

One of my favorite beers along with Dogfishheads 90 Minute. Very bold bitter hop aroma and flavor. Complex tones throughout make this interesting every sip.

UPDATED: FEB 6, 2016 Intenso color ambra lievemente nebuloso con un cappello di schiuma beige chiaro di medio spessore. Aroma di frutta passita e caramello, con tenui sentori resinosi di luppolo. Investe il palato con note dolciastre e fruttate di biscotto, mou e uva passa che evolvono rapidamente verso un amaro intensamente luppolato che fa a pugni con massicce dosi di malto; il finale vede la vittoria dellamaro: asciutto, alcolico e persistente. Corpo massiccio, struttura robusta e sciropposa e abv generoso la rendono una birra "spessa" e prepotente, priva di piet o grazia alcuna.

smells really nice but this beer smells and looks MEAN. And? It IS....The small uneven head dissipates quickly, two pulls on the glass and Its obvious from the lacing this is high octane stuff. The taste is really almost into IIPA territory yet hangs back a bit. The DELICIOUS malts used in this beer then un-sheath their swords. Yikes. The hops are mid-palate and very cool. The bitterness never trying to spar with those deadly delicious malts. This is a damn good beer and seems to me to be almost of a style all Its own.

It does not leave much foam on top, but at 11.5% it is surely like a barley wine rarely the big foams is expected. The aroma is like a whole fruit farm; plum, apricot, raisin and showed probably a little fresh figs? The taste is very complex. In the first mouthful reminded the me of a too strong mixed lemonade, but its an ale that just need time to orientate in all corners of the mouth and mark the territory, just as the predator who is pictured on the label. And it suits me really good, cause with its warming alcohol spreads are also a nice fresh taste of ripe fruit and citrus. Its all very vinous with a good dose of hops that bears the taste for a very long time. The slightly sour and indefinable flavor nuance in the background. It tastes incredibly good!

Stiamo parlando sicuramente di una delle birre pi buone al mondo: ci sarebbe poco da dire. Lunica cosa che vorrei far notare questa: a dispetto dei suoi 12% risulta leggera nel palato ( e nella testa). Laroma determinante e il doppio malto sopraffino.
