Notes:

Descriptors: apples, pears, melon, dank grape.

Light khaki brown color. Complex set of aromas that I can never really pinpoint to one thing, it keeps changing each time I get my nose in it: apples, melon, pears, nelson dank grape note, green pepper and lime sometimes (mint maybe)–I give up.

At first taste it’s fairly bitter, but it fades surprisingly quickly. The high FG might be taming down the high IBUs. Little alcohol heat in there. Thick silky mouthfeel, almost too thick for a double IPA and I like a thicker mouthfeel, probably drop the mash temperature and lower the high protein flaked malts next time. For such a high FG it still feels like a dry finish, which I didn’t expect. Leaves your mouth pretty dry and bitter. There is a bready/toasty element buried deep in there that quickly washes away with hops and alcohol. Think I prefer the more classic citrus and tropical hops in a double ipa. Overall this was a strange beer, huge aroma, big mouthfeel, but it didn’t really come together.
