Overall: Heard all the hype, so I drove 30 minutes in pouring rain to have this on tap at Isaac Newton's in New Town, PA on August 1st which is now IPA Day for some reasons? Bad news was they limited it to one glass per person (was not loving that). Good news was the WOW factor. This beer is everything I expected it to be. Huge fruit bomb in the nose...super smooth drinkability with a variety of tropical fruits (too many to list going on here), hops, and some subtle bread notes. The hops were not at all overbearing as I sometimes find with this style of beer. The flavors were so balanced and tasty...This is without a doubt the best Double IPA I have ever had and could have easily drank this all afternoon despite the 8%. And they say the Younger is better...if that is true, I eagerly await that one to come around. Cheers!!
Serving type: on-tap
