Had this beer on tap at the brewery.

This is a good example of a hoppy Double IPA. It has a strong citrusy hop aroma with a light to moderate level of maltiness. This was not an exceptional Double IPA, but it was very drinkable and very solid.

Good Double IPA and worth a try.

A: Poured from a bottle to a tulip glass. Had a brownish color and a clear consistency. There was a quarter inch of foamy head that quickly dissipated. Decent lacing.

S: A good amount of hops, some citrus, and malt as well. Pretty standard.

T: Tasted of a high amount of hops, citrus (grapefruit, in particular), and a bit of malt as well. A bit too hops-centric (even for a DIPA), but still not a bad flavor.

M: A fairly well-carbonated beer with a bitter finish. Medium-bodied.

O: This is another beer that while competently made, it doesn't necessarily separate itself from the sea of DIPAs out there. Still, worth a look.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Nice honey color,semi cloudy,half finger of off white head, spotty lacing.

While appearance is the high point, the aroma is the low point for me, sweet malt & candied grapefruit/orange peel.

Taste is of caramel, then candied fruit, some decent bitterness in the finish.

Mouthfeel is medium, well carbonated.

Too many other great IIPAa in the price range for it to stand out for me, but a decent effort that belongs in the "balanced" IIPA category which isn't really my style as I prefer a more hop forward aroma and flavor.
