Bottled on 12-28-2010
Served on a Beatles glass mug.
Appearance: This beer is a cloudy orange with a big fluffy head. The lacing is good but not impressive.
Smell: Somewhere between Grapefruit, Melon and Pineapple.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied but pleasantly creamy.
Taste: Again, as with the aroma, this beer is very fruity, but with a good amount of bitterness. The finish is very long....I get honeydew melon and pineapple.
Drinkability: Generally, I don't care for any form of IPA's, nevertheless, I think this beer is very pleasant. It definitely lives up to its hype. At first I thought it would be like any other Double IPA but this beer is certainly unique; it is one of the best tasting beers I have ever had. I just wish it were more available.
