A friend brought a sealed growler back to New York with her.

It poured a lovely head.

There's definite evidence of hop-bursting and dry-hopping with a good amount of hops.

The aroma is flowery with hints of grapefruit. It's one of the best Double IPAs I have ever tasted.

Serving type: growler

On tap at the Mello Mushroom is Tuscaloosa. Served in a chilled goblet.

Golden color with off-white head that lingers pretty well in glass.

Smell is malts and some sweet fruit. Not as much hop character as I expected.

Taste is sweet malts. Much maltier than expected. There is some nice hop fruitiness, but definitely not as hoppy as I would have expected for a DIPA. Moderate bitterness in the finish.

Mouthfeel is light-medium bodied with average carbonation.

Overall this was good, but a bit of a disappointment given the ratings. Perhaps the hops have fallen off a good bit. Not sure how old the keg is. I will definitely try this one again to see if this was just an old serving.

Serving type: on-tap
