3.85/5  rDev -4.7%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

This one has a bottle date on it 8/23/12.

A - pours out a clear light golden yellow, with a white head of a fingers height which died off relatively fast. Average lacing on this one. Head died to nothing after a few minutes. Looks like a typical IPA.

S - I get a nice dose of crisp clean smelling hops that provide a light sweet citrus (orange), mango and pine aroma with a nice caramel malt back on it. Not very strong on its nose but pleasant none the less.

T - This beer comes off nice clean and crisp with some pine, grass, orange citrus, and some pineapple sweetness. It is relatively balanced at this point with a caramel back on it. Cannot detect the alcohol besides on the back end which cleans off your palate and dries it out. Only complaint is a slight metallic flavor on the aftertaste. Hops do not build on your palate so you get to taste and enjoy them after each sip.

M - The beer is nice and soft on the palate with a medium light mouth feel all followed by a nice dose of carbonation. This beer slides down really easy and makes you want more. All I can say is crisp.

O - I really enjoy the way this beer drinks for a Double IPA, definitely not extreme for the style but really clean, crisp, and pleasant for a beer coming in at 8.2%. Nothing to complain about here just a really good easy drinking beer. I could put a few of these back for sure. Will buy again. Well done, cheers!
