3.55/5 rDev -12.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Pours a very hazy (looks like a lava lamp suprisingly) golden color with a 2 finger thick pillowy white head on top sticks to the glass.
Fairly grainy aroma with lots of grapefruit and a hint of biscuits. Earthy floral hop tones also. Nothing overly exciting or NEW, but solid on the nose.
Sipping reveals a surprise in my mouth. It's not as bitter and piney as I was anticipating, but more a mouth of sweet grapefruit along with orange rind and some earthy flavors comes through. Smoother finish with a bit of the alcohol and cane sugar coming through. The finish is a bit "thin" for a double IPA for my liking but this is decent. I wasn't expecting the alcohol to be quite as apparent as it was also.
Overall, a fairly easy brew to drink. I should have chilled this one a bit more than what it was, since it was in a cooler and sat out on my counter for a few hours. Cooler than room temp, but not quite cold.
