Eleven

22 oz bomber, purchased at City Beverage, Winston-Salem, NC, USA. A “Triple IPA”??
Pour is a dark orange pour with plenty of head and some superb lace. Hoppy nose, but this is balanced in the aroma with lots of sugary sweetness. Considering the ABV it is also well carbonated.
Sugary sweetness is the feature here. Metallic hop presence also features in the finish. Syrupy sweet mouthfeel makes this quite slick. Considering the ABV of 11.7 %, this is relatively drinkable and the alcohol is well hidden. That’s not to say that it isn’t there – obviously it is – but when you think this is nearly a 12% beer it drinks OK.
I dunno, I’m getting a bit tired of all these massive IPA’s, what about some subtlety?
