Appearance is hazy, glowing burnt gold with with a large, foamy off-white head that leaves chunks of foamy lace. Great label, this would make a killer tee-shirt!
Smell is pretty hoppy, as expected, with a fairly wide range of west coast hop notes - citric grapefruit, resin, a little grassy, a little skunky. Somewhat sweet as well, tropical fruits more than malt sugars, as well as sweet, clean ethanol.
Taste is a touch more aggressively hop forward, more to the pine, grass, bitter side, although the grapefruit is present as well. Also quite herbal. Faint cracker from the malt, and light sweetness on the finish lingers behind the firm bitterness.
Mouthfeel is dry and oily, medium-light bodied.
Drinkability is high, I really like the range of flavors from this hop, as a single hop IPA it doesn't lack complexity. Like the clean, light base malt beer as well, sturdy ABV well hidden, all around a really well done IPA.

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.

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.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a light golden amber with a healthy two finger fine white head with great retention and pillowy lacing. Aroma of citrus hops with light elements of orange citrus and pineapple; light bready malt. Flavor is bready, lightl caramel malt with tropical and light pomaceous fruit, finishes with moderately bitter, grassy, citrus and lightly floral hops. Nice creamy medium body. Not an over the top hop bomb, but a nice balance of sweet malt, fruit flavors and the Cluster hops, which have a pleasant complex fruit and grassy character. Another pleasant single hop experience.
