Probably the least hoppy double IPA I've had. The Claremont Craft Ales employee said it had a huge amount of hops, but malts dominate the beer. It's not bad, but you want to taste hops in a double IPA. On tap from the brewery, so you know the hops haven't faded either.

On tap at Claremont Craft Ales in Claremont, CA.

Pours a clear honey orange with a foamy off-white head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. A foamy curtain of lace coats the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest and slight herbal flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a low level of carbonation with an almost flat mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a solid citrus forward hop presence that is slightly better in the aroma.

Double IPA in a fairly pure form. Very clean taste without the overpowering yeast flavor that can come from heavy brews.
