ReaperAle Sleighor Double IPA

87 / 100

Boo! Yeah it's fucking Halloween. Also happens to be the day after I have a spooky looking bottle of ReaperAle's Double IPA. ReaperAle has this crusty-guy-in-a-jean-jacket-with-a-metal-band-patch kind of artwork going on. Thankfully, in this case the beer is much better than the label.

From San Diego, this is definitely a West Coast DIPA. It pours a bit darker than most. The aroma is all hops - the pine, the sweet = all there. The 9% ABV is well hidden in this, so it's worth being careful - it could catch up with you quickly. If you like hoptastic beers this is for you. If you like hoptastic beers and Judas Priest album covers - run out and get this now.
