4/30/12 Otto's Double D

So a couple of days ago one of my colleagues brought me some beers from when he went to Otto's in State College, PA. So the other night when I was sitting down to eat my chipotle black bean burger I decided to have the Otto's Double D IPA. Now as everyone who reads my reviews regularly knows that I am not a huge fan of IPAs so take my ending comments with a grain of salt. The temperature was 40.5 degrees with a small head at 1 11/64" and a rocky off white head appearance. The head lacing was excellent and a head the dissipated quickly with soft carbonation. The clarity and color were sparkling and gold respectively. The taste and aroma were a mixture of citrus, floral and an earthy taste. The finish length was long with a dry mouth feel and back tongue hit. The body lacing was excellent and overall not bad for being an IPA but I still have not been converted to the IPA band wagon and think I will always be hard pressed to find one that makes me say that I want another one. Thanks for reading and as always drink responsibly.
