Orange in color with a lovely head of white foam, this IPA appeals to many senses from the start. The amazing nose is one of citrus, pine, and some behind-the-scenes tropical fruit. The body of the beer is a little hazy and your senses are easily piqued to take a sip.
As expected, this IPA has a big taste, featuring grapefruit, pine, citrus, mixed tropical fruit, and alcohol. The hops are a little sticky and make their presence known from start to finish. Biscuit- like malts attempt to balance things out and they do a decent job, but the emphasis is still on the hops.
A big brew, this IPA is packed with flavor and it may not go over well with everyone at first, particularly those who are not fans of the IPA style. Hop heads, however, will fall in love immediately and may rank this among the very best. I couldn’t consume this as an everyday brew, but I agree that this is a delicious double IPA that I will certainly buy again.
