Solid brew from my hometown.

Appearance was fine, although I'm not terribly particular about the coloration as long as an IPA doesn't start looking like a porter. It poured foamy but settled quickly.

Smell was not particularly bold. It didn't make me say "wow that's a double IPA." Hops were apparent and slightly citrus.

Taste seemed to almost deteriorate. It went from pleasantly crisp to lacking something. I almost feel that this is a Double at 9% that tastes like a single at 7%. It tastes like a very good IPA, but not as hoppy as something like Myrcenary.

Mouthfeel is good. Overall this is a beer that I would love to order again in a pint.

32 oz growler from Growlers.

Pours an orange color, lightly hazy, with a eggshell colored head. Aroma was citrusy, but had a fairly predominant pale malt sweetness. Taste was citrusy, with a little pineapple, and a somewhat yellow cake-like malt sweetness. Good slick oily mouthfeel, with a medium body and good carbonation.

Fairly tasty, but not quite wowing.
