Poured into a tulip.

Appearance. Clear, light straw in color. Pours with 3 fingers of dense white head, which dissipates leaving nice thick lacing on the side of the glass.

Smell. Some citrus is present, but pineapple and mango are present. Pine is definitely present as well, but is not as pungent as in other dipas.

Taste. Very sweet straight away, which is slowly cut by a piney bitterness. Some of the fruity hop flavor starts to come in, which works well with the sweetness. Some yeast is present soon after this, while a grassyness starts to be palpable. THe finish is long sweet and piney.

Mouthfeel. Pretty standard for a double IPA: Thicker body with moderate carbonation.

This is truly one of my favorite double IPAs, especially coupled with its ease of access. Like many southern tier beers, the sweetness is prominent, but is coupled with both the hops and, to a lesser extent, the yeast. This makes for a complex and enjoyable brew.

3.7/5  rDev -8.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pour a extremely light golden hue with solid effervescence and bubbling carbonation. The light color was worrisome that it would lack flavor. Strong aroma of pine and bitter floral hops. Taste was better than the appearance indicated, smooth with good carbonation. Tastes of caramel and malt with balanced hops. This was a good beer.

Great gold and copper color. Good foam when poured. The smell of the hops and the malts are very distinct. Great. The taste is very hoppy at first with that long lasting aftertaste. Very bubbling which quickly dissipates, leaving that good bitter taste on the tongue. Overall is a great IPA. Will be buying this again.
