look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5
Bottled on 9/16, poured into my Pints for Prostates pint glass on 10/1, now that's fresh. Respect hops, consume fresh it says on the bottle, OK, this one's not leaving Denver.
Pours golden with a white head that leaves good lacing.
Nose is piney and citrus hops... beautiful nose
Taste is citrus hops balanced out with some maltiness. Not overly bitter, very balanced. The aftertaste is more bitter than on the way down.
Mouthfeel is light, well carbonated.
Drinks very easy for a double IPA, can't believe it is 8% ABV. Very well worth seeking out and drinking fresh.
