5/5 rDev +7.5%
look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5
A: Pours a deep yellow to light orange with a couple fingers of dense white head.
S: Smells of pine, citrus, and a little spice. Solid malt backbone makes itself apparent with a touch of sweetness
T: Tropical Fruit flavors start things off with a solid kick of caramel sweetness from the malt. Citrus and pine hit the taste buds as well and the swallow is bittersweet and citrusy.
M: prickly carbonation that subsides quickly to a nice and smooth well rounded feel. A little slick in the mouth and after the swallow but it dries nicely
O: This is some delicious beer albeit hard to find unless you get it from the brewery. There are other double IPAs that are just as solid and delicious but this is the one to get for the time being. Unfortunately I feel that the lack of availability is one of the things driving demand for it.
Date on the bottle is from 6 Feb.
