A more citrusy and tropical IPA. Pours a nice bright gold with a head that dissipates quickly. The alcohol is pretty well hidden under the hops. Glad I was able to try it.

Tropical, dank and drinkable. Mangoes, peach, grapefruit juice and some pine. Has a lightness to it. Really refreshing, clean taste. Balanced bitterness with virtually no malt backbone. Short finish. Real good.

Solid balanced DIPA. Alocohol hidden by the malt. Roughly 10 days old. Tropical melon and citrus smell and initial taste. Fruity and bitter throughout. Solid.

This stuff is like bubblegum hops to me. There's enough booze in it to make me feel like it's a bad decision to drink it on a weeknight, but you barely taste it.

In my opinion it is an excellent brew, and one that I wish more GA brewers emulated or take notes from to brew something similar.

This is a great drinable double ipa for those who say its to hoppy or boozy man your taste buds need a wake up call. Really smooth creamy like at first followed by a dry hop citra flavor. Did i mention really creamy doesnt hit ya with dank right off the start like majority of ipas got it as a extra in a trade loved it

This pours cloudy. Thick Head and good lacing. I was surprised by the lack of aroma. The flavor is sweet and juicy, but some sips are boozy. Decent dipa.
