Was happy to find this sixers at MaaDoodles in Joplin, MO!
Pours an effervescent gold with 2 fingers of pearl colored head. Above average lacing & okay
S: Lemony notes, slight breadyness
T: Grapefruit, breadyness, lemons up front. Grapefruit lemons & slight pear notes as this warms, along with a whisper of pineapple, plus some dryness & leafy hops. Finishes with a touch of honey, plus grapefruit & lemons in abundance, & a touch of peppery & piney hops as well
MF: Medium bodied, soft carbonation, gets a bit chewier & warming as this warms
Drinks too easy, abv is well hidden & this could just as easily pass for a ballsy IPA. Very nice, will buy more in the future if still around. This would go great with some green chile or Thai red curry

A - Slightly hazy yellow orange beer with short tight head that fades quickly to a film and extensive lacing.
S - Solid nose of pine, grapefruit citrus, floral notes, with a mild honeyed element, presumably from the malt.
T - Stronger honey couples with a hint of lemon and a certain medicinal element. Another IPA that reminds me of a honey lemon throat lozenge, not that that is a bad thing. This is a pretty delicious brew. Middle comes with some bitterness, and that runs through the close. At the end, the honey comes back, offering a touch of sweetness.
M - Mild carbonation means the bitterness and hop oils hang around. Not a sign of the serious alcohol, though, which is a significant accomplishment.
O - This is a solid double IPA, with bright flavors. An added benefit is this quite drinkable for a DIPA. I will pick this one up again, I suspect.
