Bomber. Pours deep orange, finger white head fades to a ring, soapy lace. Sweet citrusy aroma, mild ripe tropical fruit. Delish tropical fruit citrusy taste, touch of ripe fruit, dank piney woodsy hops, perfect balance. Soft creamy mouthfeel. Incredible brew, met the high expectations.

Sip of Sunshine is still #1 but, the double comes surprisingly close. Must be had fresh to capture all the sunny goodness.

This beer pours an almost clear amber with a nice thick head and plenty of lacing. The smell is fantastic. All of the tropical and citrus smell with some pineapple and mango. The flavor is just as great as the smell. Lots of pineapple and mango with some grapefruit bitterness. Overall this is up there with the best IPAs I have tried.
