A gorgeous day in Halifax and a double IPA from one of my favorite East Coast breweries. I'm hard pressed not to write a review.

It's been a while since I last drank a filtered DIPA. It's not something I expected but it still looks quite delicious. Its crystal clear polished amber body boasts an ample level of carbonation that helps keep the finger's worth of off-white head afloat.

Fresh, leafy hops with undertones of mint are the first aromas to come out. Zesty citrus and juicy peach are close behind with a touch of danky pine. A soft toasty, caramel character assures that there is some malt backing this West coast inspired DIPA.

A punch of piney, leafy, minty hop goodness hits the middle of the palate as fresh peach slides underneath. Zesty citrus goodness pinches at the cheeks. Light biscuit and a touch of sweetness comes in the finish with some sweet citrus to chew on.

The body leans to being full with a creamy and sticky texture. Slightly dry in the finish but the stickiness that runs throughout stops the finish from being clean. The bitterness from the hops as well as their fresh leafy character lingers long past the finish.

For the sticky, green leafy hop DIPA lovers, this beer is right down that alley. A great offering from Propeller and one that`s definitely worth the buy.

biggest props to my BA in crime andrenaline for picking this up on his recent east cost swing and including it in our cross country trade
A - clear red-brown copper, thumb of tan head retained nicely and left some random lacing blobs
S - fruity and floral, light caramel and metallic, mostly gentle aromas
T - an interesting hop flavour mix of floral, orange citrus, and just a touch of pine resin, backed up well by caramel and nutty malt
M - medium to heavy body for an IPA, mild bitter, finishes full
O - one of the most well balanced DIPA's i've come across, it has all the big hop presence you expect without being overwhelming, well put together

A - Pours a nice dark copper colour, thumb of he's with decent retention, nice sheeting lacing.

S - Nice sweet citrus hop, heavy pineapple and a touch of caramel and toffee on the finish.

T - The pineapple hop notes dominate, surprisingly sweet with an earthy pine undertone. The caramel comes through on he finish and lingers alongside a bitter citrus flavour.

M - Medium bodied, smooth and dry.

O - A tasty DIPA and probably my favorite offerin to date from this brewery. The floral an pineapple hops are reminiscent of a west coast IPA. The abv is well hidden, making this a dangerously drinkable offering.
