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!

Not exactly what I'm looking for in a DIPA but tasty nonetheless

12oz can (thanks Joe!) poured into a Russian River pint glass

A - crystal clear, straw looking, lemony color. Lots of carb. Bright white head.

S - Sweet, tropical fruits. Nectarines, oranges, peaches. This nose was kind of underwhelming.

T - Not sure if this is an old can? There is no date anywhere. Up front, tropical fruits - pineapples, peaches. A sweet beer, but the bitterness is kind of overwhelming. That bitterness lingers, and it makes you want to scrape your tongue. This beer isn't very balanced. Very, very dry finish

O - this beer is super hyped, and I guess I just didn't "get" it. Again, this may be an older can, so it could be a fast fader.
