Wormtowns newest double ipa, this was brewed with ten plus hops including Amarillo, Centennial, Kohatu, Summit, and Simcoe. Near the end of the boil Buddha's hand and grapefruit peel was added. 120+ IBUs.

A - Poured into a standard snifter a nice hazy dark orange hue with a wonderful one finger thick and creamy white head that fades slowly to leave tons of side lacing and a thick sudsy blanket. Just excellent. Great appearance for a Wormtown.

S - Aromas of big tropical juice here with lots of light pineapple, subtle papaya, and mango. Great bitter grapefruit. Buddha's hand fruit comes out in the aroma as well, its own pithy tropical fruit aroma I've come to love in Chinese candies.

T - Taste is is a wash of hops all of which play very nicely together. Bitter pine, tropics, and faint malts are balanced nicely. I really like what each hop brings to the table. Deliciously bitter with Buddha hand peel coming out nicely in an almost chewy way. Very nicely integrated throughout the brew with the grapefruit peel really lingering on that and finish making a naturally bitter finish even more so. Again, excellent.

M - Mouthfeel is wonderful. Crisply carbonated keeps the alcohol from weighing this one down. That said its still a somewhat sipper as that 9.6% definitely hits good and hard.

O - Overall I really enjoyed this Wormtown offering. Hands down this is my second favourite new release they've had over the past 8+ months (Norm wins that category). A very delicious DIPA one of the best they've done. Definitely worth getting if one is in the area. Excellent.

Interesting beer,
A more viscous MF than more DIPAs. Slightly heavier body.
The look is not unusual. 3F head with a honey color.
The aroma is weaker than the taste, but quite good. Citrus, earthy, sweet,
With warming, less citrus, more almost-toffee like aroma and citrus-earthy.
Taste is excellent. Citrus, earthy, perhaps an almost toffee like flavor.

Not as hoppy as other DIPAs.

The flavors change with warming. Start out at 45 and note the changes with warming.
Heavy citrus gives way to a toffee like flavor and increased weight in the MF.
Quite interesting and a bit unusual. Worth checking out.
This ain't no NEIPA.

Incredibly flavorful thanks to what I believe comes from the grapefruit peel addition. Bitter hops but insanely drinkable. Just a great balance between the citrus notes from the fruit, hops and a bit of pine. This is a huge improvement from previous years. I can only hope this comes out year round.

L - Rusty orange and a finger of white head

S - Hop resins and oils. Grapefruit and sweet citrus.

T - Intense hop resins with lots of spice. Just enough citrus to balance it out.

F - Syrupy body that needs more carbonation to move it along. Some warming on each sip.

O - Massive DIPA (nearly TIPA) that leans heavily on oils and resins.
