Very fresh growler sent by my friend in VT.

Quite hazy looking and I am positive that it's the hops. This is a double IPA but it drinks like a pale ale. The hop profile is right up my alley too: grass, pine, weed and ginger. No sweetness and none of the tropical fruit bullshit. I am f'in loving it.

No balance so to speak, just a very dry and fresh tasting IPA. The ginger note is a new one for me but it works very well. Reminds me of Heady Topper and wows me in the same manner Heady did.

4.5, 4.5, 4.5, 4.5, 4.5

4.74/5  rDev +9%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

750ml growler poured into a tulip.

A- Golden orange pour with a nice haze. Two fingers of white foam. Moderate lacing on the glass after each sip.

S- Strong fruit and pine scents. Really picking up a grapefruit scent with other citrus fruits present. Moderate hops smell but not overwhelming.

T- Nice citrus taste. Grapefruit notes jump out right away, and linger in the aftertaste as well. Other tropical/citrus fruits coming through after the initial grapefruit upfront. A perfect amount of bitterness detected, definitely well balance and not too hoppy.

M- Dry, light to medium bodied mouthfeel. Nice citrusy/bitter aftertaste.

O- This is an excellent DIPA. Very smooth and easy drinking. Does not drink like 8% at all. Love the great balance of citrus, earthiness, and hops. Would love to be able to have this all the time. Drinks excellent in the FL summer heat.
