Beer Tasting: Otto's Double D

This is a double IPA from Otto's in State College, PA. Poured from a growler the next day. This was one of six on tap. Have you tasted this beer? Let us know what you think. As a suggestion, try to keep the review as brief as possible for each of the following: appearance; smell; taste; mouthfeel; and drinkability. Appearance Adam: copper brown Bryan: solid amber with hints of red Smell Adam: faint nose, sweet, hoppy Bryan: citrus, pine; reminiscent of 120 min from DFH Taste Adam: tangy & bitter, rounded out with malt Bryan: big wonderful grapefruit, hoppy; light malt flavor Mouthfeel Adam: substantial coating, not watery Bryan: medium body; consistent texture throughout; lively without being overly carbonated Drinkability Adam: I love double IPAs and this is an awesome example Bryan: very good; even though it wreaked havoc on my allergies Seconds? Adam: uhuh...but the growler is empty....State College is too far away! Bryan: yes, for sure

The tangy, citrus like aftertaste of this beer is memorable. Excellent!
