Decadent has a fruity, floral hoppy nose.
Pours gold with a slight haze under a fluffy off-white 2” foam cap.
A big fruity malty attack combines yeast and hop driven fruit flavors such as papaya and melon with light caramel malt and light grains to finish with a clean, bitter aftertaste with a hint of light vegetal hop flavors. The beer contains a lot of hops but they are expressed more in the flavor than in the bitterness. Well balanced.
The beer has a big body with slightly below carbonation.

By far the best beer on the market today. It is smooth, hoppy and full of flavor without being bitter like some imperial IPAs can be. After this beer you will compare all other beers to it, and they will come up short.

Lack of hops, Smooth Drinkable NOT VERY DISTINCT FLAVOR

found this disappointing if looking for a double Ipa could see getting totally trashed on it as its 10% and virutally tasteless

but when I burppped it did actually taste like an iPA

My first IPA with a "waxed" dipped tip. (my main reason for buying it) lol
Kind of a flat tasting beer. Not "hoppy" enough to have want to return and buy another. They also have one with a yellow waxed tip, I believe its a Blonde. That one was ok too.
