Drinking double IPAs is very often a regrettable endeavor. They lure you in with their excess (of hops and alcohol) and then knock your fool ass out in two pints. Steelhead Double IPA from Mad River Brewing Company does all of those things, though the journey is at least a memorable one where taste is concerned. This liquid tastes like black licorice. Not so much so that people that hate that stuff will do a spit-take, but just enough that the rest of us will take long soulful slugs … and then go right to sleep.
