Batch 345 poured into a nonic pint glass. The honey adds a unique dimension to this beer and I believe it ultimately compliments it. It's somewhat subtle yet distinct enough to taste and smell its presence. Solid offering.

Batch #3--, the last two numbers of the handwritten number were smudged. No bottle date but I know it was released in the last couple of weeks based on the brewery's social media page. Poured into a tulip and is a deep golden yellow color with good head and lacing. Smell is citrusy with hints of honey, and taste is about the same and is delicious. I also though carbonation is a bit higher than I prefer but easily cured with a more aggressive pour.

This is an awesome DIPA that reminds me of Spiteful's namesake IPA, but injected with 'roids and sweetened up. Will buy again.

Pours golden yellow, cloudy, with a finger of off-white foam.

Grapefruit, mango, honey, and toast.

Candied malts, citrus and tropical fruit, and sweet honey.

Medium-bodied, medium carbonation, semi-chewy, sticky, sweet.

Overall, this turned out swell.

Very balanced double ipa, the honey adds a nice touch, the 9.4% ABV definitely can sneak up on you.
