A - Two fingers worth of froth white head which displays excellent retention... A dark rich golden color... A moderate bit of carbonation rises throughout...
S - The hops shine... A wonderful mix of citrus to start... Grapefruit... Orange zest... Tangerines... There is a hint of piney earthiness mixed in as well... There are some apricot notes on the nose as well... The malt base is present, but takes a back seat and allows the hoppiness to sparkle...
T - The hops are at the forefront and are mostly citrusy with a kiss of piney... They sit atop a rock solid malt base that is dominated by caramel, toasted malts, and rich bread crust... Straight forward and rather effective...
M - On the fuller side of medium bodied... Crisp... Clean... Refreshing... Moderate carbonation... Sleek to start... A bit chalky and dry to finish...
D - A very nice well balanced American Double IPA... Lots of redeeming characteristics that make this one solidly better than good, but not quite very good...
