This is the first time we've brought this out of its scabbard. We've never released a Double IPA - and this will make its debut at our 5th Anniversary Party on 5/17. Attacking your ability to make good choices, this bully quickly becomes your best friend.

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

Pour straw golden in color with a slight haze and orange hue. Head is about one finger and has good retention.

Smell is great. Lots of tropical fruit aromas of mango pineapple and stone fruit before a nice grainy malt aroma comes in that smells nicely balance. A little bit of pine is also present but the tropical fruit hops are the main show.

Taste is great and follows the nose. Loads of tropical fruit hops are forward with big juicy flavors of mango pineapple and grapefruit. Minor hoppy bitterness is minuscule in comparison to the immense hoppy oils and resin with slight flavors of herbs and pine. Grainy malt balances the hops with a mild sweetness and cracker like malt.

Mouthfeel is great. Huge amounts of hop oils and sticky resin give this a big body. Mild carbonation cuts the hops and a mild bitterness comes right before a somewhat dry finish.
