4.24/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

12oz bottle poured into pint glass. No fresh date.

A-A dark golden straw colored body. Minimal white head. The body is slightly turbid. Minimal lacing is left on the bottle as I consume this beer.

S- Has a very pungent nose. Dank hop resin gives way to tropical citrus notes. Grapefruit and apricot are the main culprits. As the beer warms the smell becomes more volatile and even more enjoyable than when I first poured it.

T-Like the smell the taste has citrus notes mixed in with some of those hop resin's. Has a nice balancing malt back bone that gives some balance to the hop forwardness of this beer. Leaves you with a great fruity-earthiness after taste.

M-Nice carbonation and good medium mouthfeel. What you are looking for in this style. Finishes on the sweet side with that awesome after taste I described above.

O-Overall a very good double IPA. The 9.4% abv is not even apparent in this beer. Smooth with the hops being the dominant factor. The malts definitely help to give some balance to the taste but the hops come in well executed. Drink and enjoy.
