5/5  rDev +22.2%
look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

The appearance was an amber golden with wonderful clarity and carbonation.

The smell is full of citra hops. Just like opening a vacuum sealed bag and taking sicking your nose right in it.

The taste is just how it smells. Lots of hops finishing clean with a grapefruit flavor.

I was blown away by Nightshift on this one. They've done an amazing job for holding out on making an IPA. If they keep making this Belgian Double IPA the same way, I think Heady Topper has a contender.

Serving type: growler

4.21/5  rDev +2.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance:
The head pours very vigorously and creamy as well as white. A lot of lacing is left. The beer itself is a dark amber with a hint of brown but clear.

Smell:
The citra hops are present and mix well with the malts. I also get bits of tropical fruits such as mango and possibly pear.

Taste:
The citra hops certainly come out and are dominant but the sweet caramel malts balance it out. I also get hints of what appears to be mint and tropical fruits as well. The Belgian yeast also comes out very well to balance out the strong hop flavor.

Mouthfeel:
Biting carbonation and medium bodied. Very smooth. The beer feels fairly thick.

Overall:
A fairly good DIPA and one that I plan to come back to when I can.

Serving type: bottle
