This Double IPA was designed to showcase the six different hops we added. Lots and lots of them. We then dry-hopped this Double IPA with even more–generous additions of Chinook and Citra hops to create a nose that hints at tangerine, mango, papaya and pine. This beer pairs extremely well with spicy foods and all kinds of seafood. And of course, it’s quite enjoyable all by itself.

The look is a pale amber, rather translucent, now resting in a clear Imperial pint glass. All of it came, just recently from a pint can. There's a modest and enduring head on top. The aroma is moderately hoppy, bringing hints of both pine and citrus. Within a nice body, which also provides a decent mouthfeel, come both some of those characters hinted at by the smell. More citrusy than piney, this doesn't come nearly as close as being fruity to taste, as many others. This is nicely balanced, with a solid malt body carrying a moderately (for the style, above the norm for most others) well-hopped DIPA. The 8.2% ABV is very well accommodated by the flavor and mouthfeel. This is as close to a good West Coast IPA in overall taste and mouthfeel as one may find from something that's not claiming to be one. Certainly one of this brewery's best and well worth the try.

Sixteen ounce can copped from Ridgedale Liquors in East Hanover. Pours a bright, golden hue with extremely hefty frothing. Assertive aroma replete with hints of coriander and grapefruit. Similar overall flavor profile. Highly recommended. Good stuff.

a decent offering from a local craft brew. best by 3/16/21; consumed 12/26/20.
L: from the can; the can's pretty sedate.
S: mostly pine, bit of bitter citrus. picks up a bit more sweetness as it warms a bit.
T: follows the nose. pine, grapefruit. bitter, resinous finish.
F: smooth. light carbonatino.
O: it's ok but far from a leader in the class.

Undated bottle into red plastic cup(hey, I'm on vacation in the Keys and it's the best I can do). Pours a deep amber with a brief off-white head that dissipates quickly. Initial impression is subdued pine, grapefruit, maybe some lemon, a hint of mango, and bready malts. Mouthfeel is medium, as is carbonation. Finish is bitter. OK but not exceptional.

Mildly hazy, deep yellow body; thick, rocky, creamy head. Caramel and citrus rind notes in the aroma but rather subdued. Bread crust flavor topped with a somewhat zesty, definitely bitter hop presence. Mostly heavy body; thick; prickly on the palate; dry and acidic finish with a touch of lingering residual sugar presence.

An okay DIPA although the hop presence is really underdeveloped. Despite the label's suggestions of tangerine, mango and pine, one is hard pressed to pick out any of these notes (well, perhaps pine). The malt backbone kind of dominates things at the expense of much hop nuance.
