look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A - Copper - dark orange color with one finger of off white head

S - Sweet caramel malts with light hops which have citrus and floral notes. Main focus on the nose is the sweetness

T - Hops come out strong in the flavor. Citrus and bittery hops hit first, followed by caramel malt sweetness and some alcohol taste. Well balanced by the sweetness and surprisingly nice hop flavor for only one type of hops.

M - Lightly carbonated with a medium body and some head from the alcohol

O - Very good double IPA which draws well-rounded hop flavor from only one variation of hops while balancing nicely with a malty sweetness. Alcohol is a bit stronger than I would prefer, but that is common of the style.
