Went to the Karl Strauss by South Coast Plaza for dinner and enjoyed this beer so much I thought I'd bring home a growler. Nice golden color, solid carbonation, and very floral on the nose. Taste is hop-tastic, a little spicy, mango, pineapple, full bodied, and leaves a sticky mouthfeel with each sip. Each little taste left me wanting another. Careful with this one, it packs a punch! Far and away my new favorite DIPA! Well done Karl Strauss!!!

Big Barrel is one of my favorite KS beers. The New Zealand hops come strong in this one.

Appearance- Golden hue with a light head

Aroma- I get a lot of Mango and Pineapple

Taste- Tropical fruitiness with light-medium malt backbone

Drinkability- An easy drinking Double IPA with my type of hops.
