Having on draft at the union brewhouse.
Appearance: one inch head reduced to a thin layer and slight lacing. Very clear orange with slight signs of carbonation. More lacing as the beer was drank.
Smell: super citrus and piney notes. Very pungent tangerine and grapefruit. Sweet, sweet caramel and toffee notes.
Taste: citrus way up front, pine and sweet malts in the rear. Malts balance out the hops nicely in this beer.
Mouthfeel: smooth, full bodied, medium carbonation, deliciously smooth.
Overall: a very nice Double IPA. Now I can understand all the good things people were talking about. I will be enjoying more of this in the future.
Serving type: on-tap

4.23/5 rDev -3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
A: Bright brass-colored hue with a tuck white head and great lacing
S: Lots of citrus hop aromas up front--grapefruit with some tropical fruits lingering; some sweet malts but mostly this is a fruity hop bomb
T: Not as much tropical fruits in the flavor--quite bitter and still some citrusy grapefruits hops but also some grassy and dank hop flavors with a subtle sweet malty undertone underneath
F: Nice body and even a bit chewy and oily
O: A bitter hop bomb; this is a great beer but I would love it to just have a bit more of a sweet malty undertone to bring just a tad more balance
