Wild Onion Hop Slayer Double IPA

This 8.2% ABV double India Pale Ale is from the Wild Onion Brewing Company of Lake Barrington, Illinois. It has 100 IBU's.

The beer pours a hazy amber in color. There is nearly an inch of thick and creamy off-white to very light brown head. The aroma is hop forward in a spicy, funky, garden onion way. The taste is earthy, floral, spicy and somewhat fruity hops on a bed of solid malt. It has a medium to heavy mouthfeel with minimal carbonation. The finish is dry and moderately bitter, not as bitter as you would expect for the 100 IBU's. This DIPA is not for the faint of heart (plus look at that dude driving that car).
