Yowza. I stumbled across this very pleasant surprise in an unlikely hole in the wall. They had no idea what it was, or why/how they secured it. Lucky me. This DIPA is as close to perfection as I could possibly imagine. Beautiful orange glow, sleight head, lots of tiny bubbles. Good if minimal lacing throughout. Incredible nose of piney floral grapefruit, luscious mouthfeel, and charming malts which more than balance/hide the alcohol. So easy and pleasant to drink. If I have to die by drowning, I hope they drown me with this. It's absolutely incredible all the way across the board.

The beer comes in a beautiful hazy golden orange color. A bright brilliant color.

The aroma is huge of bright tropical fruit, mango, apricot, pineapple along with fresh grapefruit. It's extremely hoppy along with deep garlic and onion inside.

The flavor follows with a orange, grapefruit, citrus note and then there's also some floral notes. There's a gentle crackery light malt character then it rolls into pine and then a rolling grapefruit pith bitterness. It's an extremely hoppy beer with a light malt backbone.

The beer drinks extremely light and easy with tons of complex flavors. The alcohol is absolutely hidden and it does not taste like a DIPA. I would draw comparisons between this and Heady and I never say that.

Pours a hazy orange with a thick, quickly dissipating white head. Some lacing. Aroma is full of grapefruit and sticky pine resin. This is what a Double IPA should smell like! The taste is just as the smell indicated, lots of grapefruit and pine resin. Faint earthy notes. Balanced by a strong malt backbone, but it's the hops that take center stage in this beer! Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, this is textbook Double IPA. Pick this one up if you can find it.
