"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.

A: Golden color, white head, strong lacing on the glass
S: Wow. Definitely swirl this one a little and smell. Intense melon-tropical aromas with some nice piney-ness behind it. Honestly, I'm holding off on finishing my glass so I can keep smelling it
T: Nice dank, piney flavors with some onion. Not nearly as much tropical fruit as on the nose.
M: Medium bodied, but surprisingly light given the rest of the profile. Nice bitter finish
O: Pretty damn good. The aroma is definitely the highlight, but it's an awesome beer overall
