Mad River's Steel Head Double IPA has a hazy, caramel color, a slight head, and thin lace. The aroma is bad. It smells fishy. It’s possible that this bottle has gone skunky. The flavor was better than the aroma. Rich, sweet malt with strong, citrus hops. There was an oily mouthfeel. This beer is generally well reviewed, so I might try it again just to find out if it's just that this was a bad bottle.
