Found this on tap at Pizza Port. The bartender really didn't know how to pour beer so maybe the head could of been better? The lacing was fair.
The color was a rich orange shade. The taste was a mild pine resin oil that left a sticky oily finish on the tongue. The hop spice was more orange and mango flavor with a decent malt backbone. The drinkabilty is very good for me because for being a dbl ipa the alcohol is fairly on the low side compared to other brews.
This one didn't WOW me for all the hype that it gets? One guy at the bar said this year's brew wasn't as good as it use to be. Maybe the hop shortage change the recipe slighty? I would still drink this brew again next year!
Serving type: on-tap
