one of the most drinkable double ipas ive ever encountered. thanks to a wonderful trade with thebrewo, I got to enjoy two cans of this bad boy. the pour on it is tinted red, orange, and bronze, with some small yeast floaters and an amazing bone white head that rises three inches high and holds up well above the rim of my glass. the nose is fresh oily hops, high alpha, fruity and juicy, citrus and pine both, only mildly bitter. there is a decent coppery malt balance, but hops are of course the star of this beer. the taste is a lot like the nose, with a very fruity and complex hop arrangement. I would love to know which varietals are used, but I can say that there is a hefty tropical fruit element, its pineapple or tartish passion fruit. a little bitterness creeps into the finish, but not enough to slow down its drinkability at all. love the feel too, fuller bodied but kept swift by its lively carbonation. super creamy, and less sticky and filling than many other beers of this style. I had two cans back to back, and was only done because I didn't have any more. im not sure if this comes in 4s or 6s or what, but I could drink these forever. its amazingly fresh and refreshing at the same time, unlike a lot of big india pale ales. thanks to thebrewo for hooking this up, its one ive been hunting for some time now, and it surpasses even its hype. bomb!

12oz can poured into a teku
A: Gandhi Bot pours a bright, orange-copperish shade of gold. It's hazy, unfiltered, and really good looking.
S: Crisp aromas of candied citrus, tropical fruits, and pine. Very pleasant-smelling beer.
T: Bitter and malty, but not much of the flavors the nose promised. The beer does deliver a beautiful dry and bitter finish. Little disappointed with the flavor of this one.
M: Probably the highlight of the beer for me: crisp, creamy, and refreshing.
O: Thanks to a great BA for throwing me this as an extra. A good beer I enjoyed quite a bit, but the taste just wasn't there for me. Looks great, smells good, and tastes not bad.
