Poured into an imperial pint. Hazy orange with some particulate matter floating around. Not a lot of retention, some lacing. Truth be told, not the greatest-looking double IPA around. I'm calling it average, and even that might be a bit of a stretch.
Oh, but it does smell very nice. Mango and orange/grapefruit.
It tastes even better than it smells. It's been a while since I've gotten excited about a double IPA, but this one has that "juicy" bitter fruit character I like, instead of tasting like pine resin and dirt. It has some mango and passionfruit going with it. Not a ton of malt going on here, but there's enough to give this some balance and add some minor sweetness.
Feel is thick and oily.
There's nothing outlandish or wild here, but this double IPA with the crazy axe-wielding Nordic chick on the absurd label is pretty good. I feel that it's a double IPA that could be well-enjoyed by both beer geeks and non-beer geeks alike. That doesn't mean it's a wussy beer, because it isn't - I just think it has very agreeable flavors that would appeal to a wide cross-section.
