as the previous reviewer, had this from a growler, purchased at The Fridge in Lancaster, PA today.
poured into a curved pint glass
A- A translucent gold with orange hints. Bright white fluffy head that laces well down the glass
S- I could sit and smell this all night. Very tropical, mango, pineapple, orange, grapefruit. The hop oil on this one just seems t jump from the glass.
T- Bell's works some magic to hide 10% so well. The taste is very similar to another brew I adore, Stoudt's Double IPA, but the honey is what makes this different. Taste very much follows the smell, gets a bit boozy on the end with a lingering hoppy bitterness that balances out the honey sweetness. Balanced. Very balanced.
M- light carbonation, a pretty creamy mouthfeel, with ample dryness to invite the next sip
O- A Classic Double IPA that eveyone should try.
Serving type: growler
