Nice golden color with a white head that leaves splotchy lace all the way down. Smell just blows you away. Citrus all over the place with just a hint of pine. Taste gives you the grapefruit that I just love. Oily mouth. I had a glass of this at Brass Rail and had to go home and get my growler so that should answer the drinkability question. Web site says 100 IBU's but i don't see it in a good way. This is my favorite double IPA ever. Great balance, nice bitter finish without puckering your cheeks but there is never a doubt that the hops are there. There must be a ton of sweetness in there to balance things out but it dosn't become cloying which is my biggest complaint on doubles. Great job, wish you could get this in bottles.
Serving type: growler

Thank you blind tiger- pours a clear golden amber with a finger and a half of head, good retention and lacing.
Smells incredible- great fresh pine scent. A little base malt.
Tasted amazing also- big pine hop character but not too bitter. Nice balance of flavors but very very hoppy.
Mouthfeel is great- medium body, modestly carbonated. This ones a keeper.
Serving type: on-tap
