Too malty for my taste, probably meant to hide the acohol, not a fan or overly malty beers. Not impressive. Their 2XIPA is much better, but their IPA is their best.

Some very odd yeasty tastes that I didn't care for. This was horrible after it warmed up a bit, but not bad at first.

Pours a slightly hazy deep copper, close to amber, similar to the Gemini I had yesterday, half finger of off white head, decent lacing so far

Smell is Kiwi, some sour apple?, pine, sweet sweet malt with caramel and toffee making an appearance, pineapple and a good herbal sweetness

Taste is Kiwi, papaya, soured citrus, caramel apple, toffee, herbal tea bitterness

Mouthfeel is full, sticky and oily, not as dry as your average DIPA but still dry

Good DIPA Definitely tastes like a amped up version of 2xipa I would be interested to know if they use the same hops and malts in both beers, either way wish I could get this in 6ers like that one!

First time trying this. It was bottled about 5 months ago. I mite have liked it fresh but thanks to distributors sitting on beer well past it best by date I have a malty beer that gets a bad score.
