Served on tap in a pint glass at the brewery. The initial smell is great, hops permeate the nostrils. The initial taste is smooth and fresh, and the hops again make their presence known, but the alcohol taste remains behind. The color is a nice gold hue, and leaves behind a nice white lace as you take a sip. The best thing about this beer is the fact is that the ABV is high, but the taste remains fresh and you would think it was much lower. Highly recommend.

A: amber and slightly copper in color, leaves nice head but goes quickly, leaves good lacing on the glass

S: lots of pine, slight citrus, and a little bit of sweet malts

T: predominantly piney, some citrus makes an appearance as the bitterness kicks in, moderate bitterness level, bitterness lingers a little in the after taste and some sweet malts accommodate the bitterness

M: feels very light and oily, doesn't leave your mouth too dry, a little bit sticky too

O: solid DIPA, hard to tell it's %9, would recommend trying it if you can

Looks like sweet liquid gold in a glass. Head was of medium size, pure white and contrasted very well with the beer.

Definately smells hoppy as an IPA should.

Tastes like a regular not a double IPA... Hoppy, sweet, bitter. Being a 9% abv I exected a strong alcohol taste, but didn't get it; Muy bueno! I like the 9% because I dont have to drink as much liquid.

Mouthfeel was avg. Thin/ avg feel.

Overall one of my favorite IPAs.
