I was disappointed with this offering. Quite surprising. I'm not getting the citrusy american hops they are touting at all. Its not a bad beer but it doesn't quite add up to a double IPA.

A big double IPA is always up my alley and I figured I'd give this one a shot.

A - Nice DIPA orange color. Hazy dry hop opaque and has a white head with minor lacing.

S - Great hop fragrance with citrus, light pine, dank, and a full fruity character.

T - Same as the smell with fruity citrus character predominant with all of the typical DIPA flavors. The hop bitterness are also present but not in contention with the NW hops. There is a very light malt and yeast character but mostly covered up by the hops.

M - Medium to light mouth-feel with light carbonation. Pretty balanced between sweet and bitter and is softer on the palate.

Overall, a great DIPA. Even though it isn't as heavy or malty as some DIPAs I would definitely get this again. If you like the strip your teeth bitterness and boozy character that comes with some DIPAs this isn't one for you but if you want an IPA with some more kick in the ABV and flavor department then this one is a great choice.

Had this poured into a pint glass. There was a good amount of white head, great lacing. The color was a hazy orange-copper, inviting. The nose is full of fruit and hops. Expected more citrus, but it was more sweet, maybe passion fruit, unique for a dipa. Really enjoyed this, not too boozy. Give it a shot.

Wasn't expecting much, but it turned out to be a tropical fruit hop bomb. A touch sweet.
