Presentation: Draft, served in a snifter.

Appearance: It's a crystal clear gold color with a one finger head that goes away quickly leaving some patchy lacing behind.

Smell: Mostly fruit and citrus with notes of fresh grapefruit and oranges along with some more zesty citrus peel aromas.

Taste: It's very bitter and fruity. There's grapefruit, tangerine and the slightest hint of malt sweetness in the background.

Mouthfeel: It's full bodied, smooth and creamy with medium carbonation.

Overall: A fruity and robust DIPA that's very bitter but still manageable.

Dangerously easy drinking. Nice aroma and body, very balanced. Citrus dominates. Just an overall really solid DIPA.

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.
