Aroma: Many have used the term "fruit juicy" to describe the aroma and I'd be inclined to agree. But I also get a sparkling white grape juice aroma as well. Probably one of the most unique hop aromas I've ever experienced. The aromas are definitely in the "citrus spectrum" but unlike any other American hop I've experienced. Clean fermentation character. No esters or malt character. Can't get past the sparkling white grape juice aroma. Wonderful.
Appearance: Slightly cloudy golden pour with a low thin white head. Laces the snifter wonderfully. No effervescence noted.
Flavor: More sparkling white grape juice. Light lemon lime citrus character. No malt base that I can detect. Balance is bitter. Finish is bone dry.
Mouthfeel: Light, spritzy with high carbonation. No heat, astringency, or creaminess noted.
Overall impression: One of the most unique Double IPA's I've ever had. I loved it. Seems very dry and thin for a double IPA but the unique aroma and flavor are lovely. Glad to try it.
Serving type: bottle
