Somewhat hazy golden with a thin white head. Looks like a decent brew. At least this is a bit different than most of these west coast hazy doubles. I think it’s the simcoe that adds some depth to the nose. It also imparts a less fruity flavor and there is Less sweetness making this different than most of these mosaic Citric sweet doubles. This also has that tinge of caramel malt even though it looks like a hazy NE IPA. Prickly if not a bit light on the carbonation with a medium thick feel. Decent !

Notes via stream of consciousness: So what do we have in here? A first whiff suggests Chinook. Ah ha! It's right on the label, Citra, Simcoe, and Chinook. It's a hazy deep gold beneath a full head of slightly off-white foam. The aroma is strong, and appropriate for a double dry hopped IPA. I get the Citra as it's giving of some lemon, but the Simcoe is more in-the-mix for me. That could change as it warms up. Oh, and you can certainly smell the malt as well. On to the flavor... I'm getting more orange here, and just a touch of lemon towards the finish. There's a bit of pine but not as much as I would have expected given that that's the first thing that popped into my nose. Simcoe can be piney and woodsy as well, so there's that, and it has a soft citrusy note to it as well. All of that describes the hops although I might arrange it like this: woodsy, citrusy, piney. The malt is grainy, biscuity, and perhaps even a bit toasty. It works really well with the malt and hops becoming almost one. A solid bitterness runs straight through it, and it finished dry with some resinous pine lingering. Some alcohol is present - whoah, it's 6.8% - which helps to dry it in the finish as well. In the mouth it's medium bodied and crisp with a fine-bubbled carbonation that warms to become smooth and almost creamy. Speaking of creamy, I've still got a nice creamy cap on it and there are rings of creamy lace left behind in several spots where I took a sip. Nice. So, look, smell, taste and feel are all solid. Additionally it's nicely rounded and balance which is kind of the true measure of a beer for me. I've got to give it two thumbs up.

Not a bad example of the style. Dark gold orange and hazy. Smells dank and bitter, and the taste follows as such, with a strong malt base. Light to medium bodied, boozy, mouth watering. May have let it sit too long before reviewing, but still not bad.
