Cabin Brewing Company Super Duper Saturation – American Double / Imperial IPA at 8% ABV | 45 IBU (C$4.68 at Collective, 473 ml, packaged on 30-Dec-2019, acquired 9-Jan-2020, reviewed 15-Jan-2020)

Appearance: near-opaque straw with two fingers of rocky white head, good retention and moderate chunky lacing. (4/5) Aroma: citrus, tropical fruit, oats, dank pine. (8/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, moderate bitter. (8/10) Palate: medium body, moderate-soft carbonation, moderate bitter warming finish. (4/5)

I complained a bit about the progenitor to this one, saying I’d’ve liked it more if it were either boozier and more emphatic, or less sweet. Well, I’m glad they went with the former, rather than the latter. And boy, did they ever go with more! More Citra, Simcoe, and Amarillo hoppy goodness, on a beefier malt background, with a no-messing-around ABV kick. This is pretty much exactly what I was wishing for when I had Super Saturation. (16/20)
