Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a tulip class. This is brought to me by some good friends in Wisconsin. It is the last of my four pack, so I thought it high time to review it.

Pours a hazy mango color, like the color of mango nectar. While it is light-colored, it is almost opaque. Has a half inch foamy white head which reduces with a soap-like consistency.

Has a very fruity aroma, with loads of orange citrus, pineapple, mango, and an airy floral nature that really makes this standout. You could get lost in how good the smells.

After such a wonderful aroma you hope that the taste won't let you down, and thankfully, it does not disappoint. Sweet and mualty upfront, with mild fruit and hints of caramel, this ends with a pleasing bitterness leaves you wanting more. Hints of resin are there to remind you of the strength of this brew.

The medium mouth feel, very smooth and easy drinking, ending with a bit of bitter to nip at tongue.

An excellent DIPA, it is a real disappointment that New Glarus is not sold in the Cleveland area. Sweet, fruity and malty to start, with a pleasing but not overpowering hop bitter to finish, I cannot get enough of this double IPA.
