4.85/5  rDev +11.5%
look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a New Belgium snifter

A - A stunning golden amber, perfectly transparent, decent head and lacing almost all the way down the glass

S - Papaya, oakie, pineapple, jasmine blossom, sweet hop, sweet malt and a citrus resin

T - Really sweet all the way through with papaya, pineapple, jasmine. The middle is sticky sweet malt and an explosion of sticky citrus bitter resin at the end and very oakie

M - Big, sticky, bubbly and smooth

D - Very pleasing all the way from the sip to the swallow. Easy to medium drinkability

Final thought - This and Elder are my favorite IPA styles by far. This one I think take the cake and I am so glad they finally started bottling it.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Simply the best double IPA you will ever have. MASSIVE candied fruits. Think those dried pineapples that are chewy and delicious. Orange, tangerine. Sweet grapefruit. Hop bitterness in my opinion is more reserved than its union jack younger brother, but still a nice hit of hops. This beer is absolutely fantastic.

Cloudy off yellow pour with thin white head. Smell is grapefruit, alcohol, pine. Taste is hoppy and citrus, balances really well, not over the top bitter. Mouthfeel is smooth with heat from the alcohol at the end.

Overall, excellent beer. Love the heat that comes in at the end very nice little burn. Much more balanced than other Dbl IPAs. This was bottled on 10-25-13 would love to taste a fresh one.
