this one is definitely one of my favorite doubles on the market for a few reasons and here they are. yes the Hop complexion is pronounced but its even release of the malt is only noticed when enough of this great liquid is assimilated by the pallet at least for me anyway. a blast of floral and fruity notes hit the noise first before having the first sip and then the complexities abound when into the first few real mouth fulls. on draft its mouthfeel is absolute perfection not too sharp not too thin, a good melding of ibu's and sweeter characters are prevalent. definitely a stand out beer for a stand out brewery here no matter how's its served this one is gold in a glass for me!

Poured from 22oz bottle into tulip. Pours a clear golden color with thick head. Strong strong pineapple aromas...most pineapple I ever smelled in a brew. Taste is very hoppy, citrus, some sweet malts, but hops dominate. Its a bit over bitter for me, but id have over and over again. Can wait to start seeing the 12oz 4-packs!

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle dated 08/13/12 into a 16 oz. tulip glass.

appearance: 1 inch tall pure white head that persists and leaves some lacing. Beautiful deep golden orange with near brilliant clarity.

aroma: Huge citrusy, piney hops with a touch of fresh-cut grass. Notes of tangerine and grapefruit. Very faint malt sweetness in the background.

flavor: Loads of rich hop flavor that manages to be citrusy, piny and resinous all at the same time. Hops are followed by subtle bready malt with a touch of honey that finishes moderately dry. Balance is definitely to the hops, but the bitterness is not overpowering and the malt supports it well. Hop flavor is complex and well-rounded and is clearly the highlight of the beer.

mouthfeel: medium body, moderate carbonation. Leaves a lingering hop flavor on your tongue with no hop-derived astringency. There's a touch of alcohol warmth but it blends in well, the 9.5% abv is fairly well-hidden here.

overall: a very well-crafted double IPA that's probably in my top 5 for the style. Definitely makes me want to seek out more.
