look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12 oz can into a FFF teku.

A- pours a cloudy dark orange with a 2 finger off-white head. Big clumps and trails of lacing remain on the glass.

S- honey, orange, lemon, citrus rind

T- caramel, bitter citrus rind, orange, lemon, pine and some spice

M- medium body and carbonation. Frothy feel and dry.

O- good dipa but wasn't blown away by any means. Pretty dry with some sweetness to balance the citrus rind bitterness.

12 oz. Can

A: Hazed orange with a small white head. Small floaties are visible. Thin Lacing.
The color is great.

S: Strong tropical fruits. Pine and other citrics. Malts come through a little.

T/M: Citric fruits, an above average hop bitterness. Pine and resin with some yeast.
Malts taste sweet and go well with the other flavors. Alcohol is slightly noticeable
as expected. Medium bodied, slick at times. The finish has a linger of tropical flavors
and the bitter remains of the hops.

O: Excellent IPA. Not a hop bomb like many of the double IPA's that are out there.
Instead the tropical hoppy flavors are well balanced and easy to drink, without being
too bitter. For east coast IPA's this one has to be one the best. Hard to find but if you
see it you must try it.

Finally getting the chance to have a Ghandi bot! I have wanted to try this for the longest time

A- pours a hazy murky orange with lots of floaties when held up to light. Great white foam on the edges with sticky lacing racing up the sides

S- piney grapefruit and pungent mangos are at the forefront of this brew. Very tropical with sweet citric flavors exposing itself

T- incredibly citric and bitter simultaneously. A caramel flavor shows up in the background but moreover this is a strong citric hop push. Very sticky and pungent with heightened tropical fruit flavor. Even done herbal hop components too

M- carbonation is spot on and there is great flavor

O- Gandhi bot is a great DIPA. While VT with always set the bar for me, this is still an excellent hoppy DIPA with flavor I want

A- Pours a murky, mucky deep gold with an inch of bright white foam. Thousands of little islands of sticky lacing grabbing and gripping the glass.

S- Pink grapefruit, orange peel, mango, apricot, HUGE notes of pine. Subtle touches of sweet caramel malts and honey.

T- Basically the same as the nose. Everything grows and opens up as it warms up. Fairly underwhelming really. I've had much better for much less $.

M- Nice bitterness blended with fruitiness and sweet caramel malts. Doesn't really stick to the tongue but goes down nicely.

O- Not overly impressed by this. It's not bad by any means, but I was really hoping for more bang for my buck so to speak. Not enough depth for me. Pretty Plain Jane IMHO.
