Special thanks to Maverick74 for the great extras

A - Hazy apple cider body with two fingers of pillowy off-white head. Nice retention and great lace.

S - Slightly worty nose. Wet bread, leafy greens, wilted basil, touch of spearmint.

T - Wet cilantro, rosemary and a touch of pine. Grass, boiled broccoli, and lemon on the backend.

M - Medium-light body. Ok carbonation.

O - Surprisingly vegetal. The beer was extremely hit or miss in the tasting group that I enjoyed this with.

Found this one to be very similar to the Otter Creek / Lawson colab Dbl Dose. Solid dbl ipa! Look forward to having again.

Another amazing brew from the Foley Brothers company - they need to hurry up and distribute in NY! Just the right balance of hops to malt for me, I can't get into the fancy language but it's a damn good beer.

Picked up at Bogeys, Beverly MA. Good distro! Paid for it though at 10/bomber. Poured into a Sam Adams glass.

Stunning pour. Golden body, smooth, frothy head. Slight haze gives it a chewy look. Love it.

Really interesting aroma. It's a bit floral and a bit musty a just a touch fruity. Reminds me of my Grammy's living room growing up. Always smelled like old flowers and must, regardless of the season.

The flavor is solid all around, nothing earth shattering. A little banana, a little mango, and some grassiness at the backend. Smooth, fairly nondescript, but pleasant enough.

Sticky finish, with a bit of booze and overripe fruit.

Pretty good brew here, but not worth the premium. Glad to try it though.

Poured from a 22oz bottle into an imperial pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep good color, with a short off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is a nice blend of grassy hops, fruity citrus and caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out with sweet flavors of caramel and citrus that are quickly followed by a strong grassy hops bitterness. The malt character is hearty and brings a very good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet and slightly hoppy.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down very easily, not too filling, strong kick, very good representation of style, this is a very good 2IPA to drink for a long time.
