Looks like an IPA, bordering on amber color, nice off white head.

Heavy pine and citrus with some whiffs of cerealy malt on the nose.

Pretty good, definitely a mouthful of flavor. Would be a nice compliment/combatant for some stinky blue cheese.

A little heavy on the tongue, with a bite of boozey aftertaste. Despite that, I hadn't noticed the ABV on the bottle, and was really surprised it was so high when I saw 10.6% here, so that says something. Actually I think I'm starting to believe it.

I'd drink it again with some potent cheese, but one glass is enough.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

22oz bottle into tulip.

A - Orange copper with a bubbly white head, slightly hazy.

S - Tropical fruit, mango, pine, sweet caramel.

T - Mango, peach, tropical fruit, caramel, sweet toasted malt. A mild earthy hop bitterness creeps in towards the finish. Hints of alcohol and grassy hops on the back end.

M - Extremely smooth and creamy, full bodied, mild carbonation. Warming alcohol, a little dry.

O - This is an incredible double IPA. One of the best I've had. Great balance and hop flavor. Alcohol is hidden well.
