Figure Eight Snake Pro DIPA

This is a 9.0% ABV and 100 IBU double India Pale Ale from the Figure Eight Brewing Company of Valparaiso, Indiana. It uses Nugget and Cascade hops.

The beer pours a dark amber, medium brown in color. There is an inch of thick and bubbly head, the foam an off-white color. The aroma is citrusy, orange, tangy, muted pineapple, over ample caramel malt. The taste follows the aromas directly, with orange and pineapple partially tamed by loads of caramel malt. The finish is refreshingly bitter, adding a grapefruit edge. The alcohol is present, but fully integrated, unobtrusive. This is a big beer, be ready to charm this snake or get bit by its "venomous bite."
