A- Orange honey tint, little head, no aparent carbonation looks thick and syrupy um and filled with hops.
S- Amarillo hops, sweet smell of caramel hints of vanilla aka lots of malts. Not as strong on the hops, I wouldn't mind a little more dry hopping to get more aroma I mean it is a double IPA!
T-Wooo hopapollza very piney at first hints of floral hops, it finishes out very citrusy and lots of grape fruit. Not as much malt as in the smell, but I like that there is some sweet malt but not much. Personally I think thats good in a double IPA, to much malt and i'm like where the hops?
M- Its thick but the carbonation is pretty prevelate gives the hops better taste by not making it as thick. Defenetly not as thick as I though while I was pouring it. Almost not burn from the alcohol so this might be dangerous.
O- Solid Double IPA, has some great quality the sweet malt is honey-ish and works well with the more floral citrus. Kind of reminds of union Jack. Anyhow, still bit price, but I might get it again!
