COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Lacking nothing, at ten percent alcohol by volume and 95 International Bitterness Units, the Decadent truly represents all that is self indulgent when it comes to drinking beer.

jsquire (4332) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - FEB 11, 2008
Clear amber color with a short lived off white head that shrank to a lasting whisp. My first impression of the nose was yeast, but the caramel sweetness and hops came out as it warmed. Lots of malts in this one, with toffee and bread. Some orange citrus hops but mostly just a resin bitterness under the toffee. The finish starts to tingle the tongue with alcohol and hops. Pretty average for an IIPA.

UPDATED: MAY 30, 2008 This was a hefty brew from the bottle. Very rich and thick with a very nice hop character. I could certainly see the appeal of this beer and appreciate where it was going. Nice, though not the best.

AmEricanbrew (6878) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - FEB 8, 2008
Clear amber with a white head. Faint smell of piney hops and caramel. Med body and lightly carbed. Taste is hop centric floral and piney with a mild caramel sweetness. Well cloaked 10%abv. 101506

kenb (1102) - Oregon, USA - FEB 5, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2008 22 OZ BOTTLE via Mys Swap 3.0 (Thanks Hellbilly!). Pours a clear copper with a large head that has little staying power. Nose is all about the grainy malts and floral hops. It tastes like it smells. Starts with some sweetness, then some biscuits, toffee, and floral hops. Medium body, medium carbonation....QUite clean, and frankly quite boring.....a clean and sterile malt liquor?

hombrepalo (1971) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 4, 2008
Poured a hazy amber color with a thin, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of sweet pine, resin, licorice, caramel malts and citrus fruits.Taste of citrus fruits, caramel malts, a touch of toffee, but light bitterness... finishing with a light alcohol burn. Not impressed by this IIPA.

arondee (601) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - FEB 2, 2008
Very little head. Very light carbonation, I was a little worried the beer might have been bad....but it wasnt. Great taste, not as bitter as I expected. Does not taste like 10%. Id drink this again, its actually light compared to most of the good IPAs.

jstraw (1966) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 30, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2009 Clear copper with decent, creamy off-white head / Sweet malt, pine, and citrus nose / Medium body, malty and sweet, with good hop balance and long finish / Flavors of sour malt, brown sugar, toffee, grapefruit, and pine / A big, malty double ipa.

Tmoney99 (14100) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 29, 2008
Bottle from Sams wine & spirits. Poured clear brown color with a moderate off-white frothy head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate citrus hoppy and malty aroma. Medium body with a slick texture. Medium balanced flavor with a medium bittersweet small alcohol bite finish of moderate duration. This is a solid beer.

maniac4016 (114) - bill clinton, ICELAND - JAN 29, 2008
faint hops on nosing(imp ipa??) malt actually more dominant on nose, pours amber/copper with head that quickly disipates. this is the lightest 95 ibu beer i tasted, had 60 ibu beers whoshops were more dominating, good beer but not really typical of the style

Taverner (1100) - San Ramon, California, USA - JAN 28, 2008
Dont know why this got such a low rating. This is a great IIPA - first taste is a nice woody piney flavor, followed by a malt backbone that is sweet, but not overkill. It hides the 10% well.
