12 oz bottle was poured into a tumbler.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a small layer. It is a golden straw yellow with great clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: Floral, citrus, lemon, grassy, pilsner, and pale malts.

Taste : I get some booze and tingly bitterness on the palate.

Mouthfeel: A little chewy, tingly, light to medium bodied, medium carbonation, and a little booze.

Overall: Not too shabby out of a bottle, but better on draft. Good to see it in a bottle when I can't get it on draft.

A - For a double IPA it's a little light. Not hazy, golden orange as expected, but more on the lighter, yellowish side. Poured to a one finger, white head.

S - Lemon, citrus, and hoppy. Very nice.

T - Acidic lemon and hops are very present.

M - Medium. Good carbonation.

O - One of my favorite Beer Works offerings. A very solid DIPA. Glad they put this in bottles.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: 1/4 inch head, gold in color, high carbonation, clear

Smell: citrus hops

Taste: apricot, tangerine, grass, and a bunch of pale malt

Mouthfeel: sweet with slight bitterness towards the end, dryness at the end, light bodied with moderate-high carbonation

Overall: A good citrusy pale ale. The alcohol is very well hidden here. One I would sip on a hot day.
