On tap at Publick House on marathon monday.
A- Sits a nice hazy bright orange & hay hue. A light white head sits and lingers well. Some lacing.
S- Smell is great. Lots of crisp fresh tropical fruit. Mango, orange zest and a slight touch of apricot, which lends some sweetness.
T- Wow, a upfront blast of bright fruity hops. Clean and crisp. Lots of citrus notes. Slight malt for the body. Bitterness is big but is done in a very pleasant manner.
M- The hops are very bold, but do not sit too heavy or cloying on palate. Def a full bodied brew, but the body is mild light and really fits well with the flavor profile. Doesn't attack palate with bitterness in a negative or abrasive manner. Crisp and lingering.
O- A really great IIPA. I am impressed, I had a RIS prior to this beer and it really cleaned up my palate and was super juicy. I recommend this to those who are seeking a very crisp and juicy hop dominant beer.

4.15/5 rDev -1.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4
Bottled 1/6/14, served at fridge temperature from a 22oz bomber to my stemmed glass.
A - A delicate pour yields a clear yellow liquid with about half an inch of white head that just stays. Some lacing as the head receded a tad. One of the cleanest looking IPAs I've ever had.
S - Lemon peel in spades, mint, freshly cut grass, spruce oil, pineapple and the very slightest hint of malt. This beer has a very light, invigorating aroma that is most refreshing in a sense.
T - From start to finish, there is lasting hop oil bitterness that plays on the palate. A faint honey-like maltiness is detected on the palate but is immediately taken over by the drying, zesty hoppiness of the beer. This may very well be one of the most refreshing double IPAs I've ever had.
M - On the lighter side of medium, and the streaming effervescence adds to the lighter mouthfeel.
O - A good IPA, one that I wouldn't mind trying again when I'm in the mood to have a clean, crisp IIPA.
