Appearance is a golden orange color with a two finger white foamy head.
Aroma is super tropical, citrus, apricot, peach, pineapple.
Flavor is pine, citrus and tropical flavors. Bitter on the tip of the tongue.
Mouthfeel is semi dry with mild carbonation and slight lingering bitterness.
My favorite local ipa or DIPA.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

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
