22 oz bottle. Pours slightly hazy golden orange with a big fluffy white head that retains well and laces the glass a little.

The aroma is lots of citrus fruit with some piney resiny hops.

The flavor is sweet fruits with a resiny bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, very similar to the breakfast grapefruit IPA. A very nice fruity IPA.

Had tonight on tap and in take-home growler.
Poured from growler in Maudite chalice.
Gold amber color with significant head.
Aroma of pine and white grapefruit hops.
Significant carbonation and somewhat creamy mouthfeel.
Flavors of white grapefruit rind, pine resin hops, amber malts, subtle powdered sugar and white pepper. There's a little bit of bitterness and dryness in the finish, but it's also a creamy malty mouthfeel. Overall very tasty for a double IPA lover.

Solid gold hued body; lots of gently rising, fine carbonation; dense, creamy, white head. Strong aroma of berries and tropical fruit; mild, bready notes. Bread crust and zesty citrus hop flavor characteristics; mild caramel; fairly bitter finish with some alcohol notes. Heavy body; coarse on the palate; rich residual sugars but not cloyingly sweet; sticky and resinous, dry finish.

A heavy, juicy imperial IPA that is evenly balanced with subtle, rich flavors. Malty character tempered with a dull sweetness and very pleasing hop quality in the aroma and bitterness departments. A very nice find...
