Shocking how drinkable this Double IPA is. Job well done. Definitely going to pick up a few cases in the future.

a dark blonde that delivers a spice but then you get a distinctive grapefruit, citrus taste. The hops give the beer a certain amount of bitterness but then again it's double IPA. However, it transitions well and finishes clean.

WOW I don't care for hoppy beers, yet despite being a double hop this beer is very drinkable. Careful this beer is 9% so a six will cost you a little more but you won't taste the alchohol.

Hazy and a thin head with lacing.
Smell is boring. Boring. My nose must be busted.

The flavor is the shining beacon of this beer and it is boozy. You don't get many dIPA that leave enough room for those alcohols to add their lovely touch, but with this one the late flavor, after a mild hop bite (pretty mild), there's a great boozy grain flavor with mild sugar-sweetness. The result is something complex, something to sip on. It make me forget the dull smell. Game on.

I give it an extra high overall score b/c at my liquor store it is priced like a standard beer but its a solid double. That is worth points. If it was priced like a double, drop the overall to a 3. If only there was a nose. Bottle labeled as "enjoy by 3/16/15" - did that.

So smooth for a double - wow. Look is a sunrise orange. yellow if glass is thin. Head is 2 fingers and settles to .33 inches. Smell is wonderful - blend of citrus and flower. Taste is out of this world for a 9.0 ABV. Where did they hide the alcohol. Warming sensation going down and so smooth in the mouth. Excellent beer. Will revisit.
