Name – Steelhead Double India Pale Ale
Country – United States
Type – Double IPA
Appearance – Pours a very cloudy copper color. You can see what looks like yeast floating around in it. Very small bubbly head that disappeared quickly and didn’t lace the glass.
Smell – Some sweet caramel like malt smells with a big presence of grass like hops.
Taste – Slight malt taste upfront but then followed with big bittering hops and a bit of an alcohol bite.
The appearance of no real head disappointed me. Even on the second bottle I had there wasn’t really one after thinking I may have done a bad pour the first time around. It is definitely big on hops but not a big hop bomb at all. The alcohol bite to it, especially near the end of the glass, got strong and took away from the rest of the flavors. A slightly above average double IPA.
Overall Grade – C+
