P: 12 fl oz bottle in to a DFH tulip

A: SRM light golden yellow. Semi transparent. Head is white, 1 in, sticks to glass as beer is consumed, maintains at 1 cm. Light lacing. Medium carbonation.

S: Big fresh hops, light malt backbone.

T: Hop forward. Light but balanced malt base. Very hoppy but not bitter. Great job of masking the alcohol; this beer drinks much easier than 8.7%. Aftertaste is hop and a touch of malt.

M: Light/medium body. Mostly hop, but malt gives a nice malt base.

O: Fantastic beer. I like my ipa to have a light body/not a big malty base. This definitely fits that format.

This double IPA will kick you in the teeth and you'll like it. Drink it cold to enjoy it at it's best.

This beer has a pile of hops up front but you wouldn't buy a double IPA without expecting that. Where this beer improves on the others is the fact that it's actually drinkable with being really really hoppy.

The beer poured into a cold pint glass and left a nice 3/4 inch head for a minute that faded slowly. It was cloudy and pale and the beautiful hop smell made it a joy to taste.

This isn't a beer to drink while watching the game but if you've got a movie to watch and some time on your hands it's well worth the purchase.

I will be buying this again and I'll happily drink it wherever I find it.

A beautiful, beautiful IPA, I'm glad it's available at home.
