Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.60%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
This Double IPA is created with a massive kettle charge of Australian and American hops. It opens in the glass with huge notes of ripe pineapple, pithy citrus, and dank saturated hops. As it warms it shows its depth and complexity. . . Sweet hints of malt intermingle with straight Tropicana. It has a soft but pointed bitterness and a rich, velvety mouth feel.

Thick, turbid, creamy yellow-tan color with a fluffy white head. Under the right light, it glows orange. Smell jumps of mango, passion fruit, and mild pineapple. The taste is a wonderful punch of galaxy hop flavor, with a great punch of tropical fruitiness. As the beer warms, it is supported by some of the purest hoppy fruit juice flavors I have ever detected in a beer. Just pure orange and mango riding below more traditional citrusy and mildly bitter hop flavors. The feel is thick and lush; feels like it is saturated with flavors that slowly melt in your mouth. I imagine if sipping this beer through a straw, you'd have to pull harder as if drinking a milkshake. My tastes are preferential to galaxy hopped offerings, Green being one of my favorites, and this one tops them all.

Honestly, I do not understand how almost everything tree house touches turns to gold. World class. Looks incredibly hazy, almost murky. Smells super dank with a complex tropical bloom. Pineapples for days. Feels like a symphony playing on your palate with so many different movements. This beer is transcendental. Buy it if you can.

Purchased growler on 04Aug 2016 and imbibed 05Aug2016. Poured into Duvel tulip.

A: Thick and opaque, almost glowing orange-yellow; thick pure white head overflowing the glass.
S: Citrus overload of hopped, pineapple and tangerine… very similar to Green... slightly stronger and sweeter.
T: Sweet hoppy citrus, sweet hops with a nice, bitter dry finish. Same slightly stronger and nicely sweeter that Green.
M: This is where VG shines... thick and syrupy with the head seeming to surround it.
O: This one has stunned me less that Doppel and King JJJ when it comes to the big brothers, but I'd gladly drink it every day and wouldn't change a thing.

This is the pinnacle of NE IPAs. Hazy, dank, hoppy, looks like a straw-colored milkshake in a glass. Green was already one of my favorite beers and this things just kicks the door down. Get it if you can.
