Pours a cloudy golden yellow with a small head that leaves significant lacing.
Smells of strong pint hops, with a background of malts and some citrus.
Initially very piney, with a lingering sweetness that balances out the hops very well.
Crisp, and very clean. Medium-light body with a good bit of carbonation.
A solid beer, if not quite basic. Nothing great, but quite enjoyable nonetheless.
Serving type: on-tap

Mini-growler picked up tonight at Bier Thirty in Bown... Pours a bit hazy golden... decent white head has beautiful lacing despite the flimsy cap.
Nose is a weird hop mash-up... citrus+lessor melon with a background skunky almost catty hoppiness.. pretty sharp.. the "catty" note is really jumping out... just enough pale maltiness to balance.
Good bitterness with a fantastic hop flavor.. again is a bit catty with the pithy citrus/husky melon..
Zippy mouthfeel... never gives way to the EtOH... crisp and very drinkable.
Very well made IPA.. I would buy this again and again if I found fresh bottles... Now, I will retire to the rest of my growler.

Bottled on 6/4/14.
Pours a murky honey orange with a foamy orange-tan head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus zest, and grapefruit juice aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest, grapefruit juice, and slight herbal hop flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with citrus forward hop qualities all around.

I'm on an IPA kick and this stood out on the shelf. I'm intrigued by the history of the Cluster hop.
Pours a bright blonde with a dab of amber and a thick head into my glass. In my opinion, ALL IPAs should be as bright as this.
True to the label, the nose is greeted with a spicy citrus kick from the Cluster hops. It doesn't overpower the nose and allows the malt to "breathe".
The spicy citrus mantra continues in the taste. Malt is similar to a buttery cracker and holds its' own against the hop flavors.
Carbonation is perfect with a touch of dryness at the back of the throat.
I have no regrets about this purchase and for the price, you get a marvelous Cluster hop IPA that tastes great and holds up well in the single-hop genre.

My buddy sent me a bottle of this , thanks erik, he told me at the brewery it is known as cluster-fuck.
A- couldn't see what it looked like but in dark reusable bottle.
S- very hoppy, slight citrus under tones and an earthy smell.
T- a little bite to it the hops jump out them settle down, slight fruit under tones definitely hit the American IPA well, and having a 7.30 abv.
M- as i said n earthy mouthfeel to it, the hops jump out then a little fruity taste comes in.
O- Overall i liked this beer, i have had better american IPAs but have had worse these guys at Double Mountain Brewery & Taproom know what their doing and cant wait try more of what they have. Would love to check out their brewery to see their operation in full swing.
