Bottle into a tulip. Bottled on 071111.
A - A beautiful clear amber pour with a fluffy 2 finger head.
S - Starts with tropical fruits - mangoes and apricots, followed by grapefruit rind and finally a robust malt.
T - An amazing, crisp taste to go with the scent. Orange, grapefruit, pine and a biscuity malt to counterbalance the hops. Alcohol is not discernible.
M - Smooth and clean with medium carbonation.
O - Overall, this Double IPA reigns supreme, and for good reason. A great example of a well-balanced DIPA, plenty of hop character but offset by the malts.
