Have had this beer before but never reviewed. It's actually one of the first beers that got me into drinking IPA! Drank out of a Teku.

Look: Medium to dark copper in color with a solid medium haze and a finger of rocky, soapy head.

Aroma: Big earthy, soil notes on the aroma along with lots of overripe peach and pine resin.

Taste: Earthy flavor dominates on the palate. Not much fruit to speak of. Lots of pine and bitter resin on the finish wipes out any of the sweetness you might expect out of an 8.8% beer.

Mouthfeel: Solid medium mouthfeel with good carbonation.

Overall(style points): Definitely leans west coast in style but brings an earthy flavor and aroma to the party which adds to the compexity so it's not just another resin bomb. The sweetness is completely subdued as well which makes the beer pretty refreshing but it's not popping with spruce the way I remember it. 89 Points.

On Draft at Widow Browns

Had been only beer bucket list for a while and Im glad I finally got to try it.

L. Light hazy and dark yellow in color.
S. Hop forward, with nice citrus notes and light tropical aromas.
T. For a double it hides the alcohol well. Just not what I was expecting, a little light on the mouth feel and not as tropical as i was hoping.

Look: I poured it gently and there was a large amount of head to it. After that settled the rest of it was a solid yellow.

Smell: My nose detected a fruity mix of lemons and oranges.

Taste: This went the same way as the nose and I tasted some type of melon in the fruit mix.

Feeling: Goes down easily and softly.

Overall: The taste didn't really blow me away despite as much hype I've heard for this.

"We don't have Sip, but I got some G-Bot." When Sip of Sunshine is not available, this is often the consolation prize in local stores, and never disappointing. Great double IPA. The first thing you notice is the delicious aroma, with sweet floral, fruity and slightly piny notes. The taste is smooth with very little bitterness. A lot going on in this juicy IPA. Definitely a staple when I can get it.

A unique and amazingly smooth double IPA. At first the taste is somewhat floral. However, this soon shifts to a mellow hop and delicate honey and ultimately fades on your taste buds maintaining this most pleasant impression. Zero bitterness here (not you regular ipa). Kept under the counter when available at my local, CT liquor store. Well worth the asking for!

Whenever this beer is available I always buy it. I've had this beer many ways but for me the best taste and smell is when it is served in a chilled glass and ice cold. The flavor will become enhanced and much easier to drink. There is almost a hint of citrus hop that is not too overpowering. There's really nothing I can compare it to but I will update this review if I find something. The hops does linger on the tongue which I find pleasing. This beer can be paired with hot wings or any sweet flavored wing sauce. I would not recommend to a new IPA drinker. This is a beer that needs to be tried when all others fail to excited. I am a lover of this beer and would recommend to those willing to try flavorful beers.
