4.71/5 rDev +8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75
Pours a beautiful clear orange copper color with a thick two finger off-white head.
Smells delicious... big piney scent, very strong pineapple, grapefruit, and sweet honeydew melon. This is what a great IPA smells like.. period!!
The taste is phenomenal... a big hop bitterness that is immediately complimented with a light sweetness from the malts. This is such a smooth, perfectly balanced IPA.... I can see why this gets such high marks.
I really hope this becomes a year-round offering as it will be in my fridge nonstop!!
If you have never tried this and are a fan of IPA's... go get some!!!

Bottle from Premier Gourmet, 12oz into a tulip.
Clear golden orange, with a few fingers of looser white head. Great retention and lacing. Nose is knee buckling - insane tropical and melon character, slight pine and a beautiful sweet malt base. Slight floral character as well. More tropical fruit on the palate, melon skins, peach and a slight bitterness. Finish is mostly sweet. Low carbonation, perfect mouthfeel. I would drink this by the case.

A: Nice clear copper with 1 finger head poured into a pint glass.
S: Great aroma. Lots of super amount of pine and citrus. This is the best part of the beer.
T: Not as bitter as I would like for IIPA. But def very smooth. I wish this had as much taste as it does smell. More of an tangerine/melon/lime with a little bit of resinous taste on the backend.
M: Nice feel on the tongue with a good amount of body. Well carbonated.
O: This seems more like an IPA to me than a double. Could have used more hop bitterness up front. I do like the backend a lot. Still a very solid beer. I see how lots of people could enjoy this beer because its mod bitterness and smooth easily drinkability.
Serving type: on-tap
