Glass Used: Tulip

Appearance: A beautiful translucent golden liquid poured from the bottle leaving a two inch powdered sugar white foam which dissipated down to a thin cap. Lacing was minimal.

Smell: Gobs of grapefruit and sweet stone fruits, some nice pine notes intermingling as well. You get the malt mixed in with the other aromas. This is a great smelling double.

Taste: Follows the nose pretty closely, the citrus and fruits explode on the palate followed by the pine with malt keeping everything in check. Bittering hops linger around on the palate. Balanced like no other.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with plenty of carbonation. Smooth. Very very smooth.

Overall: This is truly an amazingly smelling and tasting Double IPA. This may well be my go-to when I'm looking for this style. Definitely recommend.

Enjoyed out of the bottle. It poured exceptionally clear, especially for a double, a light butterscotch color. The nose is sweet and malty. The bitterness comes thru in the first sip, with a bit of funk. The taste was malty - sweet with some alcohol burn. Overall, there are more complex doubles out there, I'd say this is OK, but maybe not unique enough to be outstanding.
