Beer Review: TO ØL FINAL FRONTIER DIPA

Beer Review: TO ØL FINAL FRONTIER DIPA

The pour reveals an amber-orange hue, crowned with a modest soapy head. The visual presentation is unremarkable, lacking any distinctive allure.

Aroma

Wafting from the glass are notes of peach, lemon essence, and a hint of spicy caramel-like malt. While the aromatic profile is interesting, it doesn’t quite reach the heights of uniqueness one might expect from a beer of this caliber.

Taste

The taste experience unfolds with a fruit cocktail steeped in light syrup, accompanied by bitter, earthy hops. Burnt sugar and caramel undertones contribute complexity, leading to a finish dominated by the bitterness of grapefruit hop oil. The flavor profile, though robust, lacks the finesse to elevate it to the pinnacle of exceptional brewing.

Mouthfeel

The mouthfeel presents a lively carbonation that dances on the palate, but unfortunately, it succumbs to a sticky, syrupy texture. This departure from a more refined texture diminishes the overall drinking experience.

Overall

In its pursuit of excess, the To Øl Final Frontier DIPA amplifies elements from its predecessor – more body, more alcohol, and more hops. Yet, this abundance doesn’t necessarily translate to an outstanding Double India Pale Ale. It teeters between the realms of a solid Double IPA and a West Coast/American Barleywine, presenting a dilemma rather than a clear identity. Despite its flaws, the beer manages to be palatable and enjoyable, making it a respectable choice for those seeking a potent brew with a touch of complexity.
