Nice sweet citrus hop smell. Very hazy golden amber. Light citrus with more spicy hop taste. Not particularly hoppy or heavy for a double. Character improved a bit as it warmed up.

Good beer with a fine taste, but a bit of plastic on the finish. Color and head were very good.

Poured a coppery caramel colour with quite a bit of suspended sediment, smell has caramel malts but also a lot of piney and ripe tropical fruit, taste is biscuity with a coating piney resiny and sappy character, standard carbonation adva good drinkability. Quite a flavourful dipa and now I felt was a bit high on the caramel but managed I make it work decently well, quite bitter with a rolling spice kick to it.
