look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

The beer comes in a golden amber. A clear light orange honey color with a one finger head.

The aroma has lots of sugary sweet orange, some tangerine, ruby grapefruit, some hops, and caramel sweet malt.

The flavor has sweet grapefruit at first, then some caramel to balance it, but very little. Then a hit of pine, and then finally the finish is a super bitter orange or grapefruit white pith. The bitterness is really pronounced on this.

The body is light medium.

This bottle was super fresh at 13 days old. Brew date was on bottom, under the label. It’s a really easy drinking, clean beer and more my style without much caramel sweetness.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

12 oz. Brown bottle. Has freshness date.

A: Pours a light, clear orange. Large white head with above average head retention.
Lacing is sticky and plentiful.

S: Fruity. Citrus. Hops. Light toasted malt aroma. The initial hop aroma is strong but not
overpowering. As the beer warms the strong smell slowly decreases.

T/M: Sharp citrus. Bitter hops. Some sweeter flavors are present with the nice balance
malts. The finish is dry/sweet and only slightly bitter. The mouthfeel is crisp and smooth
throughout.

O: Definitely not a hop bomb, but still this double IPA has an overall great taste. The
drinkability is great as the higher ABV% is hidden well.

Cheers!!!
