Oh boy! Been waiting on this one to hit a bottle for months.

A: Very different than when I had it on tap. Transparent light orange. Finger of khaki head. Very creamy. Moderate to minimal carbonation, with tiny bubbles rising to the surface. Retention is surprisingly good for 9.2%. Lacing is excellent, leaving soapy rings on the glass.

S: Dank and fruity. Reminds me of Sucks in a lot of very pleasing ways. Tropical fruits, pot, a hint of spruce needle. Smells surprisingly clean. The malts don't add a layer of sweetness that tends to "round out" really fruity IIPA's. Smells wonderful.

T: Big and dank up front. Again with the tropical melange. This carries through the mid palate, where the malt begins to pick up a bit. However, the malt never quite comes around to fully accentuate the fruity hoppiness. Surprisingly lacking in bitterness. Finishes with that unique spicy mango and a distinct soapiness. Slight underlying of pine bitterness here. Finishes floral, with hints of grapefruit zest and more of the soapiness.

M: Light. Incredibly light for being 9.2%. There is malt weight there, but it's nowhere near what you would expect. The entirety of the weight in this beer is in the middle. The end is just an absolute laser beam of leanness. The beginning is light and pillowy.

O: Awesome. Easily the best I've had from this brewery. The lack of aggressive bitterness is a welcome touch. This beer is on par with Firestone Walker in terms of quality. Can't wait to see what's next for this up and coming brewery.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A- Pours a clean, golden yellow with a billowy 2.5 finger white head. Solid staying power in my Dogfish Head IPA glass. Clings well. Outside of the light color, a great looking IPA

S- Big pine and ripe fruit notes. Simcoe is the main hop I'm picking up. Some orange zest. Aroma is quite pronounced too. I can dig it.

T- Huge hops. The label says its like I'm being snookered by a cantaloupe, and that isn't too far off. Lots of sweet tropical fruit- guava, pineapple, and peaches. Hop bomb for sure, but finds a way not to get crazy off balanced with the bitterness.

M- Mid body, juicy, not overly dry, but refreshing for a DIPA.

O- What a surprisingly outstanding brew. Received as an extra in a trade from raulazzer. Probably not quite as enamel pealing hoppy as some others out there, but the balance is nice.

Nice tropical fruit bomb. It's hoppy but not to malty. Slight pine, minor orange peel. Nice bitterness. Overall a very good double IPA. A real clean and fresh IPA. This is my favorite IPA from Fig mountain. Big nice aroma, and it goes along with the passion/tropical fruit backbone.
