Gave this a try a buddy of mine recommended it knowing my taste of IPAs. Not a bad beer. There's just too many good ones out right now to put this in my top 10.

Poured from 22 oz bottle into weizenbeer glass.

Aroma: Tons of pine in the aroma, plus some grapefruit.

Appearance: Slightly cloudy, golden hue, not much head on it.

Taste: Nice piney hops, with a decent shot of sweet malt in the finish. Some citrus and spicy notes.

Palate: Low carbonation, thick but not oily.

Overall: Really enjoyed this one. One of my favorite double IPAs.
