Outstanding
Notes: Head in the clouds double IPA immediately hits you with a huge aroma of white peach, citrus orange, and sweet pineapple. It has a soft, full body, dominated by juicy grapefruit and papaya flavors and it finishes clean and deceptively light for its ABV

16 oz can dated 5/23/18. Traded from Beerchaeology. Poured into tall SN swirl glass.

Hazy bright gold color with a very tall fluffy hop-powered head of 3 fingers. Good lacing left behind, not webby but in sparse broken islands.

Nose is comprised of melon, grapefruit rind, and strong dank catty notes. Very faint berry/Hawaiian punch going on as the glass is agitated fiercely. Light spikes of pine and cracker behind all of that aroma keeping it sharp and focused.

Flavor is floral and herbal for the most part, slight woody pine, with fading notes of grapefruit rind and faint citrus pith. Definitely not a juice-focused IPA, just "a hazy" one, lots of bitterness reaching out with resiny tenticles to grab your tongue and squeeze it.

Feel is sharp and crisp with creaminess underneath, medium bodied, slight alcohol burn on the finish, resins clinging on.

Overall, a pretty decent IIPA. Nothing I'd really trade for again but it's not a shabby beer in the slightest. Give it a whirl if you see it.
