22 ounce bottle into tulip glass; no bottle dating but this was released very recently. Pours lightly hazy golden orange color with a nice 2 finger dense cream colored head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of huge mango, orange zest, grapefruit, lemon zest, pineapple, tangerine, floral, honey, grass, light pine, light caramel, and floral hop earthiness. Fantastic aromas with huge hop complexity and a solid malt balance as well. Taste of big orange zest, grapefruit, mango, pineapple, lemon zest, tangerine, floral, pine, honey, grass, light caramel, and floral hop earthiness. Fair amount of citrus and floral bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, citrus zest, mango, pineapple, pine, honey, floral, grass, and floral hop earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic hop flavor complexity with a nice malt balance; but still highly showcases the hops; with zero cloying flavors present after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a creamy, lightly slick, and fairly sticky mouthfeel that is very nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with hardly any warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a fantastic Double IPA! Great hop flavor complexity and balance; and extremely smooth to sip on. An extremely enjoyable offering.

On tap at Eataly - Chicago, IL

S - awesome nose, tropical, honey, caramel, floral hop, refreshing
T - bold and fairly balanced with tropical fruit, mango, grapefruit, toasty, nutty grain, pine, fruit, floral hop, caramel
F - medium body, alcohol is noticeable but warming, finishes dry with lingering piny, grapefruity bitterness and a little bit of residual sweetness

3.7/5 rDev -13.3%

A: Pours a hazy dark orange color with one inch of white head. Nice lacing that sticks to the glass.
S: Big bready aroma with citrus pine with some strawberry and candied fruits. Some floral notes as well, appealing aroma but doesn't punch you in the face.
T: Big bready hit on the front end as well. Then on the back end has a bitterness that lingers with strawberry, orange, grapefruit and some mild pine.
M: Medium chewy body with sturdy carbonation. Semi harsh bitterness and nice and dry on the finish. Nicely attenuated.
O: Overall I really enjoyed this beer and love the dry finish. Was hoping for more and find it to be a little over-hyped in my opinion but not bad. I would drink again but not fight to get it as well.
