Thanks to drewone for sharing this one at AndrewK's tasting.

Bottled 3/2013.

Pours a murky honey orange with a foamy beige head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, honey, cardboard, citrus fruit, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with honey, cardboard, and citrus zest flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is definitely past its prime but still drinkable and not really all that bad.

I've had this from tap at the brewery and in bottles, but I'm currently enjoying the bottled version.

Heavily bubbled, strong, frothy, white head. Cap remains throughout the pint and lacing is strong and thick. Light copper, clear but with a tiny amount of haze.

Smell is by no means dank or overly resinous, just a clean hop aroma and some maltiness backed by some esters. The Citra really comes through on the nose.

Malty sweet and caramely. Strong, but not puckering, bitterness with some heavy handed hop flavors. I have a problem with most IIPAs. They tend to be either way too sweet or way too hoppy. Lot 6 hits the nail dead on the head. Super balanced with a clean yeast flavor.

Not quite a thick mouthfeel but this is medium to even full bodied. Perfectly carb'd and easy to drink. It's hard for me not to give this a pefect score. It's one of the few IPAs/IIPAs that I actually like.

12 oz.

Pours a slightly cloudy orange golden, eggshell head is a quarter inch and fine, retains well.

Smells of sweet biscuit malts mixed with fruity and floral fresh hops. Some honey in there too.

Tastes of orange citrus, clover honey, grapefruit hops, and sweet biscuit malt.

Medium body with tingly carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

A very nice double IPA, above average in all regards and very worth trying. Compares favorably to all but the very best stronger IPAs.
