Nice IPA. Poured from bottle to a round glass to pick up the very nice and sweet aroma..some peach and floral notes in the nose. The beer has a copper and tinge of amber when held up to the light. The head was a nice, creamy and somewhat fizzy, three fingers deep…and thinned very slowly. Very nice lacing on the glass. The taste has a clean, sweet, piney and a hint of caramel with dried fruits. It was crisp to the mouth and the flavor was a long lasted, but not offensive in the following swallows. Very nice IPA!

This review is from my first taste at Churchkey on tap. Had bottle as well....
A - Lovely, served in pint glass. Deep orange with about 1 finger of head.
S - Got citrus, other complex aromas
T - This was served at exactly the right temperature, suggest if drinking from bottle not be ice cold. I could taste all the flavors when almost luke warm. Grapefruit mostly. Very hoppy.
M - Medium bodied
O - One of my favorite DIPA's. The reason I'm a hop head.

4.43/5 rDev +2.1%

Poured into a snifter. No freshness date.
A- Pours a medium amber color with a 3/4 inch off-white head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and various patches of surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing.
S- Pungent west coast hop profile with some cereal grain sweetness to back it up plus a nice whiff of booze. Notes of caramel, grapefruit and pineapple.
T- Just as bitter as its single IPA counterpart but with more balance from the malt and alcohol. Actually, much more balance as I remark at how smooth it is for its higher ABV. More citrus notes and has a lingering bitterness.
M- A bit dry but with only a light amount of prickle and bite from the hops and alcohol. Medium carbonation.
O- I enjoyed this much more than Union Jack but that's usually the story with me and double IPAs vs. singles.
