I am going to start this review by saying this beer is awesome. I have already burned through a 6 pack of this recently and just got another one as a trade extra (thanks DannyKelly) and decided to get around to reviewing it.
Pours a golden yellow with amazing clarity and a crisp white head. My FW pint glass is happy to contain it. Head recedes after a few minutes into a ring that leaves mild lacing on the sides of the glass. This beer smells incredible, citrus fruits, pineapple are up front and do a great job representing the hops with a mild hop sweetness coming though at the end of each whif. Upon tasting this beer i expected it to be boozy for how light it is but instead you get a blast of hop flavor and a much needed malty backbone to hold the beer together, completely masking the alcohol. This beer is light and crisp, something you don't see with many Double IPA's. Where this beer lacks hop bitterness (what can i say i'm a Portland hophead) it makes up for in hip aroma and profile. I could drink this beer all day.
