Wow...what a great double IPA. Pours a cloudy deep amber with a lovely soapy head and nice lacing. Rings your glass like a stout! It's not the most interesting smelling beer, a little blast of hops and not much else, but what a flavor! Hop forward, but not too strong, balanced nicely by malt but not overly malty like some double IPA's can be, it's still "crisp." Moutfeel is smooth, with a little carbonation, lighter for a fouble, not syrupy at all. This is a REALLY good beer, folks. Highly recommended.

Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a 12 oz can on March 10, 2017. The smell and taste are pleasant. The real star of the show though is the feel. Super smooth and easy to drink for a DIPA.
