4.78/5 rDev +2.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a 500ml bottle into 32oz giant Pinot Noir glass.
A-as expected a nice straw yellow color with 2-3 fingers head with slight lacing and clear/slight haze.
S-definate citrus and pine, as expected with an IPA, but also a nice yeasty smell similar to an expensive champagne.
T-Awesome. First you get a nice citrus, grapefruit and lemon, which dissapates to a nice pine flavor that lasts as you swallow. Super smooth for 8% and the finish lasts for around a minute.
M-Very smooth light/medium body, what you would expect.
D-This would be the only 1/2 barrel Keg of IPA that I would ever be able to finish. So smooth that you don't notice that it's a double IPA. Best Double I have had, can't wait to try the Younger.
