Availability: Rotating

Notes/Commercial Description:
This gold colored West Coast style Double India Pale Ale has an intense hop nose, with aromas mainly of citrus. The high hop character dominates this IPA’s flavor profile. Made with American long grain rice, it is quite difficult to make but the rice contributes to this beer’s crisp aftertaste.

The beer comes in a clear light yellow straw orange color.

The aroma is just huge and amazingly dank. There huge sweet citrus. It's so deep and sweet. Super hoppy and fresh. What a killer aroma.

The flavor follows with huge grapefruit, pine, orange. There's tons of fruitiness of citrus and tropical fruits. Then there's a nice bitterness on the back of resin and pine.

The beer has a light body and a slight booze on the end. I don't really sense the rice other than the lack of big caramel malts and the light body the beer has. Despite the imbalance, it makes the beer actually quite refreshing.

The hop profile on this actually reminds me a lot of Enjoy By. Crazy enough, I actually really prefer this beer. What a fantastic brew. Must try.
