Not sure if there was something off with this batch, but it was not the beer most people remembered at a blind tasting. In fact, it finished at the bottom of 15 other top flight double IPAs.

Acquired via trade and was told it was from a "recent batch", no bottle date, so I really don't know how fresh this was. Interesting citrus aroma/taste, but overall, I found this very disappointing. This was by no means a standout double IPA, very underwhelming. I shared the bottle with 2 friends that agreed that this just wasn't very good. I'd be very interested to try this again, knowing that the bottle was fresh, but until then, my rating will stand as-is.

Pours an amber color. Great citrus and orange smell. Perfect combo of sweet and hoppy with a bit of resin/pine after taste. Awesome beer glad I traded for it.
