Had on tap at Monk's in Philly. Review from notes.

A: Douple Apex was a slightly hazy yellow/amber color with a small white, foamy head that had nice retention before reducing to a thin cap on top. Thin lacing forms all around the glass.

S: Lots of tropical fruits and rind/zest on the aroma mixed with some pine and a bit of caramel and toffee.

T: Again, lots of tropical fruit, easier to pick out some grapefruit, pineapple, and a bit of nectarine. Nice piney finish mixed with some caramel and a little bready malt.

M: Medium bodied with medium carbonation, slight alcohol presence, bitter finish.

O: A solid DIPA from Bear Republic. (646 characters)

Draft at Monk's Cafe in Philadelphia, PA.

Pours a hazy yellowish orange color with a two finger white foam head that slowly settles into a lastig ring.  Glass is coated with streaks and splotches of soapy lacing.

Juicy hop aroma that's bursting wih tropical fruit notes, citrus and dank, resinous pine.  Lots of mango, pineapple, papaya and grapefruit along with orange zest and lemon countered by dank grassy pine needle.  Some pale biscuity malt and strong booze slightly taking away from the hops.

Medium bodied wih a blast of dank, resinous hops that provide a strong dry, earthy bitterness that lingers over the sweeter notes,  pale malt and strong booze into a dry finish.  Sticky, grassy pine needle dominates giving off more bitterness than the aroma suggests.  Hue sweet tropical and citrus fruit notes from the nose are muted and overpowered by dry bitterness and boozy heat.  Pale malt backbone with grainy graham cracker and biscuit.  Lots of heat toward the finish which hurts drinkability. (1,023 characters)
