Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – The beer is served a dark golden amber color with a one finger head of billowy white foam. The head has a good level of retention, slowly fading over time to leave a good sum of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is massive of a tropical fruit smell with tons of papaya, mango, and tangerine. Along with these smells comes some doughy aromas as well as a good showing of a caramel. The hop aromas are mostly of a grapefruit smell, but also have some earthy and pine aromas mixed within as well, giving a sweet yet citrusy dank smell overall.
Taste – The taste begins with the tropical fruit flavors that one sensed in the nose along with a rather doughy flavor as well. The hops are more subdued upfront with just some hints of grapefruit and pine hop flavors. As the taste advances the grapefruit gets quite a bit stronger and is joined by some grassy and earthy hop tastes. Some light lemon tastes as well as a rather strong caramel flavor come more toward the end, with a slight surge in the citrus and pine hop flavors one is left with a sweet and malty nicely hopped flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is rather thick and chewy with a carbonation level that is on the slightly lower side. For the doughy, fruity and hop flavors of the brew the feel is great, really accentuating to make a rich and robust sipper.
Overall – A tasty tropical double IPA. One to try if you have the opportunity.

I had never seen this brew before I piced it up in a mixed twelver with three other independent brewers. Bright golden color with a reddish tint and impressive head and lace. Flavor is blasting west coast hops with a hard booze chaser and a lot of carbonation.

This is interesting, because while it is a very servicable DIPA, it does feel a bit archaic in its simplicity.

S: citrus notes, pineapple

T: bright taste, expansive, nice finish that didn't disappoint like I thought it might. Hop notes, not too much malt

F: light and bright for a double

O: a delightful double, heavy in abv but not in alcohol taste. Definitely would get again
