revising my review now that I've had a very fresh bottle.
12. oz bottle poured into a tumbler glass.
A- a gold/copper/light orange color with loads of hop haze. A billowing off white head, with fantastic lacing down the glass.
S- An assault of Pineapple, mango, grapefuit, pear, and some peach. Sweet biscuity malts are there as well. One of the best smelling doubles, pretty much ever.
T- Big hits of pineapple, pear, mango, peach, with a pronounced grapefruit bitterness. On the taste I also get an onion/garlic flavor that adds to the complexity. A layered biscuity malt is there to balance, and there is a hint of booze on the end. Grapefruit bitterness and the sweeter hop flavor in general lasts well after the sip.
M- Very slick, almost syrupy feel, nicely dry on the finish. Proper carbonation for the style.
O- Easily in the top 3 double ipa's I've had. Fantastic.
