4.49/5 rDev +6.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
Bottle: a stumpy 355mL brown bottle with a funky old-school label.
Appearance: pours a vibrant deep orange-gold, with a frothing head that settled to a one-finger with decent lacing. A good looking beer.
Aroma: a great aroma of multiple citrus hops (I can pick up tangerine, grapefruit and lemon) and pine hops also - plenty of them about!
Taste: a certain amount of pine resin with those citrus hops coming through for a complete whack against the palate. A decent amount of warming alcohol hangs about too. Great American IPA flavours.
Aftertaste: I'm not sure how they have done it, but the hop flavours have lingered through alongside hop bitterness generally found alone on the finish. Fantastic!
Mouth feel: moderate in body with a medium to high carbonation - plenty enough to get the flavours to come through strongly.
Overall: one of the best double AIPAs I have had to date. A good assortment of hops traditionally seen in an AIPA, but so clean and crisp that it simply has to be in my top 5.
Serving type: bottle
