Aroma was lemon, orange, honey, big malt sweetness, floral. Poured golden amber with a white head, medium to full bodied, it was heavy and sticky and prickly on the palate. Tastes of citrus fruits, that lemon and orange/tangerine were there, a big malt sweetness and hop bitterness strike a good balance. Not my first pick for a double IPA but a very good one regardless.

Good beer. Not the best double IPA I have tried, but very solid all around.

A: Clear, copper hue with minimal carbonation and a nice fluffy two-finger head.

S: Big, citrus punch. Apricot. Tart cherry. Slight, sweet malt. A bit of alcohol bite lets you know its a DIPA.

T: For a 10% DIPA, extremely well balanced. Hops come on strong, with rich citrusy flavors. You can tell the alcohol is there but the sweet malts in this one really balance the bite.

M: Finishes very clean, and is surprisingly session worthy due to the balance in this brew. Leaves the palate with the hops making you salivate which is answered/quenched by the sweet malts used.

O: Very enjoyable. The sculpin is killer and this guy is a close second and a great stand in if you are looking for something with a bit more kick. Prost!
