Got this on tap from the Cloverleaf Tavern.
A: pours a hazy, golden body with a frothy, silky white head with pretty nice retention and nice lacing along the glass until the finish.
S: A sweet citrus smell with some hints of cascade and slight hallertau hops. Some alcohol undertones were also evident.
T: A strong, bitter hop taste with some alcohol undertones. An earthy, warming aftertaste with slight, citrus notes. Alcohol becomes more evident as the beer begins to warm up.
M: A crisp and fairly refreshing and pretty smooth, medium-bodied mouthfeel. Nice mouthfeel on the palette.
D: Nice mouthfeel and taste combination and a nice, drinkable, double IPA. A pretty nice beer overall, despite the alcohol making itself slightly overbearing as the beer warmed up. A nice drinking beer for the cooler, fall and winter months with a slightly warming affect from the alcohol.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured into a Due South Brewing Co. snifter. There's a freshness code stamped on the bottleneck but it's smeared and unreadable.
A- Pours a hazy dark amber color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains well before becoming a thick bubbly ring around the edge of the glass and some small bubbly patches of surface foam. Tight clusters of semi-resilient lacing.
S- Musty, earthy hop aroma. Smells like New Zealand hops but I'm not sure.
T- Similarly earthy in the flavor with a bit of citrus on top. Zesty hop bitterness is assertive yet enjoyable. Easy drinking for the ABV.
M- Tingly and bright with medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the fuller side.
O- A very smooth and flavorful DIPA. I only got a single but I should've picked up a 4- or 6-pack.
