750ml growler filled at the brewery yesterday, split with Kev.

Hazy light peach-colored body with a white head. Falls to about a half-finger leaving decent lace.

Scent includes herbs, earthiness, citrus/peach, caramel and sugar cookie sweetness. Honestly, tame overall.

Taste is better and more potent with cat pee, peach, pineapple, earthy hops and some dank. Some sugar cookie malts and warm bread there but mostly hops. Low bitterness.

Nice smooth mouthfeel similar to other HF IPAs. Good carbonation, light feel, and way too drinkable for 8%.

This was good, the highlight to me was how crushable it was. Compared to some of their other hoppy ales I thought this too subtle in the flavor-wise.

Serving type: growler

750ml growler poured into a Jester King snifter

A~ glowing amber color, cloudy but still beautiful. nice head as well.

S~ overpowering citrus all around! lemons, grapefruits, mangos, etc... just the smell i want from a DIPA.

T~ following the nose with very nice bitterness from the hops. pine and earthy notes too!

M~ very nice and smooth, some what thick and creamy but not over powering. this is a double i could drink all day long and definitely fall over =]

O~ could be one of my favorite double IPA's but at this point i've said that so many times its really hard to pick... would definitely drink again, but IMO it would be easier to seek out some heady or something similar and still have just about the same experience, maybe even better?
