[Suggested Glassware: Tulip Glass]
The pour was a murky medium golden orange with an average (1-2 finger) white frothy head that steadily receded down to a few small puddles of residue and a medium collar with good sheets of lacing.
The aroma was somewhat subdued, with a mild grain malt, floral and citrus hops and an earthy yeast with notes of caramel and citrus (orange).
The taste started lightly sweet with a hint of caramel, but quickly became moderately hoppy with a bitter citrus peel presence and a decent alcohol tinge towards the end. The flavor lasted an average duration proceeding the swallow with a bitter citrus alcohol taste left to linger on the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was just past half way between light and medium in body with a dry and slightly syrupy texture and a medium carbonation.
Overall I found this Double IPA to be rather tasty without having any overpowering aspects. The light malty sweetness along with a moderate bitterness did a superb job of concealing the high ABV, and left this brew with an exceptional drinkability...
