Notes/Commercial Description:
A big, hoppy IPA with plenty of bite! Our assertive, hop-centric Double IPA has a lean malt backdrop and is brewed with four American hop varieties – Summit, Palisade, Cascade and Magnum. Piney, citrus, floral, not-for-the-timid!

Amber orange pour with minimal fuzzy white head. Scant lacing.

Nose is pine with orange, some hint of grapefruit

Taste is a quick burst of citrus up front followed by piney dry hops. Not massive, but potent enough to know what you're drinking. Mostly resin and pine, not too much in the realm of complexity.

Feel is medium body with a nice resin stick to it.

A very nice Imperial IPA. Not mind blowing, but for a new local start up's initial offering, really good. Look forward to more good things with more experience!

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12 oz. brown bottle. No date.

A: Typical deep amber with a large off white head. Nice lacing and good retention.

S: Sweet malt. Hops. Citric. Not as strong as I expect from this style. More fruity less
hoppy. Still nice.

T/M: Sweet malts, sugar, citric hops. Has a solid bite. Earthy malts and grains. Solid
balance, smooth, light carbonation. Alcohol is hidden well. Aftertaste is clean with a
faint sweetness. Overall more juicy than hoppy, but does have enough bitterness to
keep me happy.

O: It has great drinkability but lacks in the hop bite that is needed to make
a great DIPA. It reminds me more of just a plain IPA. Still a must try.
