Consumed at the brewery tasting room, April 20th, 2014.

Beer is a clear medium yellow with a creamy, fine, white one-finger head.

Aroma is dank, earthy and fruity (guava).

Flavor is sweeter than expected; some crystal malt flavor. Tropical fruit note. Significant bitterness on the finish.

Medium-bodied. Astringent on the finish.

As double IPAs go, pretty middle-of-the-pack.

32 oz. growler poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep clear orange. Small white head. Thin collar.

Smell - Lots of deep caramel malt. I really don't get a lot of hops. I guess it's Nelson hops, but it's really indistinct.

Taste - Sweet tropical hops. And then lots of sweet caramel malt. Astringent alcohol. Sweet finish.

Mouthfeel - Low carbonation. Medium heavy.

Overall - I don't know if this growler didn't do so well, but this isn't very good. Other Rip Current growlers I've had have been quite good, but not this one.
