Has a nice brilliant gold color to go along with the hgold medal it deserves... it with a slight off bright white foam that has nice longevity & lacing.
Aroma is slendid... with very mouth watering fruity citrus with a slight something to it.
As for taste...forget about it! it has everthing the "old factory" picks up in aroma and more, smooth fruity with a little something something at the end. Very nice accent to it.
For the feel...kind of the same, smooth with a slight bitter kick at the end. Superb!!!
This is a great double IPA and worthy of its 8.7ABV in every way.

Pours a crystal clear light honey yellow with a large white head with staying power. Nice lacing. Aroma is full of citrus fruits and a touch of dankness. Flavor is sweet ripe citrus up front with a strong bitter finish. Feel is medium light with great carbonation. Overall a super double IPA.

Rating if for the bottled version. Recently, at the brewery in Downingtown, PA., my son and I had it out of the tap. That one is a 5 all the way.

Awesome Double IPA from my hometown! Has a hoppy bite that other IPAs are lacking. Better than Victory’s new Mighty Things Imperial IPA.
