The beer pours a gold color with a thick frothy white head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is good. It has a smooth, malty aroma that boasts of pale and bisquit malts as well as a nice hop presence. It has a wonderful breadlike character. The taste is good. It has a well balanced taste. The malt bill offers up an elevated abv. as well as a nice bisquity feel. The hops add layers of bitterness that reach well into the finish and beyond. It's not over the top, but it's well done. The mouthfeel is excellent. It is a full bodied beer with adequate carbonation. This is a good double IPA. It's not as good as I thought it would be, but it drinks well nonetheless.

4.5/5 rDev +6.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75
Serving Type - 22oz bottle
Appearance - Golden tan, mellow yellow with a killer 3 inch thick, foamy head. Tons of sticky lacing.
Smell - Nice upfront citric, piney, grapefruit hops. Orange, some lemon, mild malt backbone. Sweet added sugars, along with some spices like coriander, lemon peel.
Taste - Right on par with aroma, big amounts of citric fruits featuring pine, grapefruit and orange. A bitter kick with some minor spices add a little zest behind tangerine and mango. A nice sugary note along with a caramel malt backbone.
Mouthfeel - Sweet tropical fruits along with some sugars coat the tongue. Palate gets more citric fruits, along with the caramel backbone. Aftertaste is minor bitter, tropical fruity.
Overall - Awesome. This should be a regular release. Really flavorful, nice amounts of hops and sweet sugars to create a nice smooth drink. Alcohol is hidden well and just adds to making this really pleasurable to drink.
