4.1/5 rDev -5.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance: Dark orange/amber with a bright white head that laced nicely. Very sticky as it went down the glass.
Smell: Lots of citrus hops on the nose with grapefruit predominantly up front. There's definitely some pine in the background and I'm getting just a touch of malt.
Taste: Not very heavily upfront on the hops. Lots of citrus, grapefruit, and some pineapple sweetness. I'm getting some pine in the background of the palate as well. There's some malt trying to soften the hops, but it unfortunately puts the beer in a odd area of not being a hop blasting Double IPA but also not being very well balanced.
Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel was fairly medium. Maybe slightly sticky.
Overall I would put this as a slightly above average Double IPA. I would definitely be happy to order it again (and probably will), but it didn't entirely blow me away.
Serving type: on-tap

12 oz bottle poured into pint glass
A- Very pale gold with thin-thin white head
S- Very hop forward but not as potent as I would like. I get a mix of citrus and piney hops
T- Hoppiness I wanted from the smell comes through on the pallet. Sweet and citrusy with a nice yeasty/bready end
M- Smooth but sticky on the backside
O- Enjoyable IPA. Well balanced but still hop forward.
