Another double ipa that looks like an amber ale, dat color and 1/2" white head. Aroma drops substantial grapefruit hoppiness.

Taste is a good dry pale malt bill with boatloads of hops. Hides alcohol well, that good bitterness sting, even though dry, its sticky. The hops run the gamut of tangerine, grapefruit and pine. Minimal caramel, where this one excels over Devil Dancer is the lack of a syrupy, overly thick malt bill creeping into barleywine territory. This cuts that off right up to the line.

Just as good as Hopslam, maybe even better.

I remember really liking this beer when I had it this past spring; it was beyond it 'best by' date, but was still a solid double IPA.
