Great IPA. Wonderful taste and feel, clean and refreshing. Citrus notes, slightly bitter with a nice finish.

Poured from bottle into Pilsner glass.
A: Pours a golden yellow with high carbonation producing a 2 inch bubbly white head. Good retention as the carbonation jets continue to fuel the head. Nice lacing too.
S: Sharp and fresh citrus (grapefruit and passionfruit) with toasted cracker malt. Straight forward but good.
T: The citrus and malt notes are the same in quality as in the aroma, but the balance is spot on (aroma was much more hop dominated...as it should be).
M: A highlight of the brew--excellent balance of fresh and bitter hops with lightly toasted malt. Nice lingering on the palate.
D: An excellent example of style. Not complex, but the perfect balance makes up for it. Nicely refreshing.

Best before 2/2015. Insanely bitter. Bready finish. Unbalanced.

I am a fan of Double IPAs and have drank many. But I found this beer had an unusual harsh and abrasive bitterness with very little balance. Just not my cup of tea really.

Medium amber. Piney bitter initial taste. Lingers for a bit. Nice overall.
