Date on bottle - best before may 21 2013
A - Pours out a clear orange copper with an one finger white head that dies down relativeley fast. Looks well carbonate and clean.
S - Oh my what an outstanding smelling brew. This is one fruity smelling beer, with mango, kiwi, citrus, also provides a slight dank hop aroma. Smells sweet with a nice caramel backbone to balance these hops out. I could sniff this all night.
T - This beer definitely hopped forward and bitter with sweet orange, mango, lemon meyer which ends really fast leaving a zesty lemon bitterness. The taste does not last long and it makes you want to drink more right after you just had some. Bitterness builds on palate. Malts are there in the beginning but you have to pay attention to get them out of this hop bomb.
M - Medium to light bodied soft beer which is on the dry side. Clean and crisp with a nice amount of carbonation. Hops have a bite on your palate, so watch out!
O - This hop bomb is something all hop heads should seek out. A new east coast Double IPA monster! Smell on this beer is second to none for a Double IPA. Love the taste besides the lemony aftertaste. A true sipping Double with enough great qualities to put this in a category of its own. Look out for this one, Cheers!
