Wow! This beer is bitter! Very fresh and flavorful.. just what you would expect a Double IPA to be. It could be a tad hoppier and a tad less bitter for me, but that is just my taste.
The color was good. Nice and orange, with a good amount of carbonation. The smell was good as well.. a lot fruitier than I would have expected, with a nice earthy tone.
The taste was knock-your-socks-off bitter. For me, the bitterness (100 IBU's) was too much, and it overwhelmed any of the other flavors. As it warmed however, the bitterness mellowed and the hops came through. This is one that I would recommend, but I would suggest having it on the warmer side.
