Pours with a thick white head that retains it's shape. Light copper body.

Smell is piney resinous. Some tropical fruit notes.

Taste is very balanced. Not very bitter. Herbal and aromatic dankness meet with some citrus and tropical fruits. Malt blends well with the oily hops to create a thick but not viscous mouthfeel you want from a DIPA.
Overall it's a very good rendition of the the double IPA. For the price I don't know if I'd stray away from Enjoy By or even Hop Stoopid for that matter.
