Excellent doubleIPA. Big citrus, floral characters from the Centennial and Chinook hops.

I get a big alcohol feel, and the biscuit taste that many talked about does come through. Overall a big IPA. Just the way it should be. Very complex in the flavors associated with this Double IPA.

A - A slightly cloudy looking gold with an almost limey hue to it--small head with only a small amount of lingering lacing
S - Faint piney hops rounded out by citrus and sweet malt--a little bit of lemon zest and orange
T - Very similar to the smell--strong citrus in the front end undercut by a hoppy, semi-bitter note and biscuity malt. The flavor lingers (in a nice way). More balanced on the backend than the front. Very drinkable.
M - Very well carbonated--just bubbly enough to suit the style without being distracting
O - This is a very solid beer. I prefer this to the Hoptologist series.
