12 ounce can poured into a pint glass.

a: Copper orange body, slightly hazy. One and a half fingers fluffy white head. Good retention, nice lace.

s: A hint of Tropical fruits, piney and a bit floral with some sugary sweetness.

t: Orange and mango up front, a bit on the sweet side. A nice hit of pine follows with some spiciness from the yeast.

mf: Medium bodied, with enough carbonation to keep it from tasting too sweet.

o: I have had Gandhi Bot numerous times over the years and I like it. However, it is good, not great. It has a slight stinging aftertaste that lingers and as it warms the sweetness comes out giving an orange soda like taste.

Purchased at local liquor store and poured into proper Gandhi Bot glassware (obtained from NEBCO before they sold out). Pours a nice hazy orange color with hints of tropical fruit, grapefruit and peach. As with most double IPAs, the taste is dank, bitter (floral and piney) hoppiness with medium carbonation. NEBCO has made this beer very drinkable; so before you know it, you are a few cans in. Definitely worth seeking out this refreshing double IPA!
