Backpocket Cane Blade DIPA

This 8.4% ABV double India Pale Ale is from the Backpocket Brewing Company of Coralville, Iowa.  If you are ever in the Coralville/Iowa City area, or just driving by on I-80, this place is definitely worth a stop. The bottle says this is volume one of the Storied Series.

The beer pours a bright orange copper and amber. There is a tall, thick head of off-white foam that leaves sticky rings of lacing down the glass. The aroma is musky dank, bit of pine, citrus, with full, ripe tropical fruits underneath, and passion fruit. The taste follows the aromas in turn. The beer drinks velvety smooth, rich, with a moderate bitterness that is mild for the style. The flavors are decent, and the mouthfeel is amazing, but the taste of this beer is much better fresh at the brewery.
