On tap @ Craft & Growler

A: Beautiful deep amber with one finger head, poured in tulip glass.

S: A balanced mix of sweet malt characteristics and tropical fruit. Slightly dank.

T: Grapefruit and apricot up front, malty-caramel as the beer warms. Good dose of bitter hop flavors at the end. Far from boozy- the alcohol is almost imperceptible for a double.

M: Medium bodied, excellent for this type of beer. Lingers for just the right amount of time.

O: An excellent offering from FW. Could drink this one all day.

Aroma: sweet caramel, citrusy/grapefruit hops.

Appearance: perfect clear amber, Nice size slightly off white head that drops thin layer.

Flavor: Caramel malt, grapefruit hoppiness. Clean bitter finish not overly bitter. Great balance of sweet malt to citrusy hops. No detection of the 9.5% abv.

Mouthfeel: Medium body, medium to low carbonation, smooth drinkability, dry finish.

Overall: one of my top go to DIPA's. The flavor the hops put out is amazing very floral citrusy, lots of grapefruit and the sweetness from the malt is just perfect. Love that this beer is so easy to find now. $6.99 at 7/11
