look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a bottle into a frosted dimpled mug.
A: pours a light but deep golden yellow orange. Nice clarity. A thick head sits over the top of the liquid, though remaining for only a minute or so.
S: the smell is pretty light. The hops mostly smell of pine and earth, with only slight hints of grapefruit and also hemp.
T: spiciness hits tongue from the start- first the tip and center, then smoothly moving to the sides straight to the back at first gulp. A lovely and surprisingly elegant overall awakening of the taste buds. With the swallow, the spiciness mellows out to a gentle bitterness that turns only the slightest bit sweet at the end of the experience. The finish is almost creamy - almost. The taste of hemp arises as an aftertaste to the sip.
M: medium bodied and moderately carbonated. It stimulates the mouth evenly with each gulp, peaking and falling quickly after swallow.
O: in comparison to other double IPAs, this beer is certainly less aggressive than others. Though i appreciate it for this- and feel it has a lot going on that can be missed in some of the more aggressively hoppy competitors. As a beer, this brew is highly drinkable, balanced, and continuously entertaining in a friendly way- certainly enjoyable all by itself.
