Feel is on thin side but alcohol is well hidden that makes this dangerously drinkable with flavors of malt, bread, citrus, melon, mango, and cantaloupe but is way sweet which must mean it has some hefty dose of sugar because something about this causes a horrible hangover headache even when consuming just 1. For this reason I'll never seek it out again.

Strong complex double IPA! It is doubtful you will not say it needs more hops!

Pours a clear gold with a nice head. The initial aroma is grassy with some pine notes, grapefruit, but very subtle. The first sip brings mild piney and grassy hops up front, with moderately bitter finish. This beer has a medium body, medium carbonation, and a substantial alcohol warmth. Nothing jumps out at me however. Its very balaced is the best compliment I can give it.

Pours a clear gold with slight head that quickly dissipated to a ring of foam. Leaves a solid amount of lacing for the style. Smell is fresh strong hops with faint malt. Taste is similar, with just enough malt to keep this from being totally hop-oriented. Extremely drinkable. Quaffable, even, yet no sacrifice in terms of flavor. Great balanced example of the style. If you want the full flavor experience of a DIPA but none of the heavyness or cloying mouthfeel, here’s your beer.

Clear medium amber, slight suspended particulates.
Wonderful aroma, tropical.
Slightly grainy malt, but overwhelming hoppy. Piney resinous. Bright citrus and grapefruit. Lingering bitterness.
Slick mouthfeel
Strong DIPA.
