APPEARANCE: Bright orange, but hazy. The head is only about a quarter-inch thick and dies down right away, leaving a few wisps on the surface. No lacing to speak of.

SMELL: There is tropical fruit and tangerine all over this beer and it is delicious smelling. There’s a touch of pine lingering in the background and the slightest hint of mint. Bottled about three weeks ago, it’s not surprising this smells so fresh.

TASTE: The biggest surprise here is the bitterness, and it’s a pleasant surprise. After the nose, I expected a sweeter, fruitier beer. The fruit is still very much there, tropical, citrus; all with that tangerine still out in front, but grapefruit and grass make a huge splash, mid-sip and ride it out until the end. Again, some hints of mint and maybe a touch of anise at the very end.

MOUTHFEEL: It’s weird to say this about a beer that literally makes your tongue curl from bitterness, but it’s pretty well balanced. That tongue curling only happens on the back end of the sip after a sweet punch early. Maybe balanced is the wrong word, a nice contrast sums it up a little better. The body is medium and the sparkle is light, but lingers for a longer time than the palate expects it to.

OVERALL: This is a real treat to be able to drink this fresh out here in Colorado. That is part of what I miss about living in Chicago; fresh FFF. Overall, this is an excellent Double IPA, I still think I prefer Dreadnaught though.
