Growler sent to me by SneezyAchew. Thanks Michael! Split with ipa247.
A: Pours a hazy light golden-orange with a thick bright white oily head that slowly faded into a thick film that left great rings of sticky lacing down my tulip.
S: Sweet smelling, with citrusy notes of orange and grapefruit along with some more tropical type of fruit notes.
T: There is a touch of sweet syrupy malt but for the most part this is a sweet, fruity and hoppy beer. I get huge notes of tangerine and citrus rind. There are some exotic notes of tropical fruit nectar as well. Malt is toned down but still present. Alcohol is hidden well.
M: Clean and easy body with a fairly light mouthfeel over a medium body with smooth, even carbonation. The bitterness in this one is highly manageable.
O: Overall a solid and balanced DIPA that I would gladly drink again. It’s a bit sweeter than I like them, but I’m definitely loving this brewery. Thanks again Michael.

Had this one during PBW at Capone's....
Appearance: Pours a mandarin to tangerine orange with a nice 2 finger white crown that displays retention and lace.
Smell: Lots of citra of course....some grapefruit, some pineapple, some mango to papaya smell, and a hint of spicy pepper. I'd give it a 4.2 if I could on BA, so I'm rounding down a bit.
Taste: Same as the nose but sans the pepper. Comes together very nicely. I'd give it a 4.3 if I could on BA, so I'm rounding up a bit.
Mouthfeel: A touch thin for an 8% abv DIPA but that just makes it all the more drinkable.
Overall: A very nice beer in my humble opinion. Worth seeking out!

750mL growler courtesy of Cam. Thank you sir.
Pours a peachy orange color with a nice off-white head. Smell is a very light, citrusy bitterness with almost a peachy fruit character. The power of suggestion is strong here. Smells nice. The taste is cleanly bitter, with a really nice, light citrus character. Finishes surprisingly bitter, but balanced and not overly sweet. Good mouthfeel without too big of a body and good medium carbonation. They have really nailed this beer. It is not as citrusy as Double Citra sounds, but it is a fantastically drinkable and balance DIPA that has a nice juicy hop character. These guys know their way around hops. Wow.
