A: Pours a golden, amber orange in color with a nice inch thick, creamy head that lasts for a long time and leaves lacing around the glass. Carbonation levels look good.
S: The malts in this one are actually quite prominent; a nice mixture of citrus hops, barley and toasty, breaded malts. Maybe a little spice, and a hint of pine.
T: Follows the nose well. Quite balanced for a double IPA. Bitter, citrus hops and toasty, breaded malts blend together pretty well up front, followed by a bittering hop flavor and finishing crisp and dry with a lingering citrus hop character. I'm a sucker for a good citrusy IPA and this one hit the spot.
M: Medium bodied with ample carbonation, a bit of oil, a good amount of substance and a bit of chewiness. This one goes down smooth and easy and remains very drinkable for a double IPA at higher ABV levels.
O: Very pleasantly surprised by this one. I expected more of a hop bomb, but this was actually very balanced and quite flavorful. It is on the heavier side substance wise, but it's still very drinkable and actually even a bit refreshing. I was pleased to find plenty of citrus hops instead of the pine variety and I will definitely be checking out other beers from this brewery, this being my introductory brew. Picked this up on a whim and glad I did! Cheers!
