Notes: Butterfly Door is sister to Lambo Door and Suicide Door. It is loaded with gummy bear hop flavor and double dry-hopped with El Dorado, Citra, and Cashmere hops. It explodes out of the glass with flavors of pineapple, guava, lime, coconut, orange blossoms, mango, gumdrops, and creamsicle deliciousness.

A: The beer is very hazy and a bit pale yellow in color. It poured with a short white head that left a thin ring of bubbles around the edge and lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of candy, lime, mango and pineapple are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell and has additional notes of coconut cream. There is a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and somewhat crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I found the smell and taste of this beer to be quite complex. It also drank quite easily for a Double IPA.

From a pint can emptied into a clear glass Imperial pint mug, the yellow-amber color of the brew can be observed. There's a modest and enduring white head that leaves a nice lacing in the glass. It smells hoppy, kind of sharply, rather than than the now oftenly softened hit provided by many IIPAs. There is a great malt body which adds a well invited sweetness to balance the hops. Yet, in a nicely malted brew, the hops rule. This might be amongst the best IIPAs you can try. Absolutely above the norm.

Pours an orangish golden with white head. Mango and papaya on the nose. Definitely get that fleshy tropical fruit character, some ripe starfruit, papaya, mango, peach, and resin. Another nice effort from Grimm.
