Glowing orange and yellow, white head 1/2". Great bouquet of aromas here, citrus, tropical heavy. Medley all around.

Its a warm beer with a little sweetness, but the hop flavors dominate all the way. Solid bitterness but not excessive especially relative to the other flavors. Relatively light malt bill, tons of hops, they do it right for sure.

3-10-16 - On tap at The Mikkeller Bar in San Francisco. Beautiful people drinking top notch beers. This had the highest IBUs (100+) on the menu, so I had to get it! Oh so good and tasty for this double IPA. Served in a pint glass with foam residue that rimmed the inside walls of my pint glass. I would have had another, but Cap needed us at the Occidental for smokes. I'll seek out Drakes the next time I'm out west and can cross the bridge. This was just too good.

Pours three fingers of head on a clear straw body.
The aroma is a burst of pine with mango and pineapple, also a bit of bread in the background.
The taste is strong deep bitterness that goes throughout.
The texture is thicker.
It's a big DIPA.

Just tried this one for the first time and was blown away. Easily one of the most tasty, drinkable DIPA's I have ever had. Can't wait to try the triple which I also was fortunate enough to obtain
