Thanks to rudzud
Big fluffy creamy head fades at a med pace, nice lacing, hazy honey color

Nose citrus a little tropical, tangerine, apricot, little peach, little orange cream, pith, mild creamy cracker malt and wheat, touch of papaya and melon, all of that is very light

Taste starts with more cracker toasty wheat, grainy malt, oats, big hops, lots of citrus, little orange cream, papaya, touch melon or candy tangerine, etc. Finish little sticky, more tangerine orange cream etc

Mouth is med bod, little creamy, decent but lighter fluffy carb

Overall not bad, lots of citrus, decent malt, nose to light though otherwise pretty good.

Can from 6/30 release (but no date) into a tulip glass.

L: Hazy light bronze, 2+ fingers of medium density white head, decent retention, left mixed lacing.

S: Very nice, plenty of peach, mango, and guava. Maybe some underlying passionfruit and grassiness.

T: Follows nose well, perhaps the grassiness comes through a bit more. Finishes with minimal bitterness, mild astringency and neither linger.

F: Lighter bodied, medium carbonation, silky on the tongue, some tingling of the lips from the astringency and carbonation.

O: Solid Double Crush series recipe, very tropical. I still prefer the Citra Double Crush to this for my palate.

Had on-tap at Moonraker Brewing in Auburn, CA

Appearance - Served in a nonic pint, pours mostly clear with a slight haze, half finger white head that dissipates to a thin, broken layer of suds and a thin ring around the edge of the glass. Good amount of lacing, broken webbing and spotting.

Smell - Immaculate juicy aroma. Citrusy and super tropical with notes of pineapple, apricot, peach and mango with hints of pine and evergreen.

Taste - Follows the nose. Orange, grapefruit, pineapple zing, juicy stonefruit with a hint of nuttiness and mango. Faint pine and leaf. Finish is clean and juicy with a hint of bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Medium-bodied with moderate carbonation. Slick texture with a crisp, clean, refreshing and crushable finish. Wow.

Overall - Oh wow. Clean, juicy and utterly delicious. It might be early to say this after only one pint, but it's the best of the Crush series, and it may be my favorite Moonraker beer yet.

Double Harambe!!

This one pours out an amber color, mild thin 1/4" white head. Aroma is nice and soft, stone and tropical fruit. Seems like Citra and Galaxy are the aroma hops, Mosaic usually, but I dunno, didn't really grasp it here.

Taste is nice, like so many Moonraker beers, this one isn't harshly bitter and covers the alcohol quite well. Color of the beer makes me think the grain bill is a little bigger than most of their double ipas. Good carbonation, nice citrus and stone fruit tastes. Pretty slick and easy drinking all things considered. Moonraker makes like 25 slightly different versions of the same beer, this one seems a tad maltier than others, that is the only major thing that jumps out at me here.

Received in a trade. Shared with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice lightly hazy golden hue with a thin white head that fades to leave light lacing.

S - Aromas of sweeter malts, light tropical fruit, bit of apricot, nice dank hops. Pleasant nose.

T - Taste is similar to the nose with very nice tropical fruits good faint malts. The stone fruit is a little jammy. Lightly sweet.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, creamy, bit thin. Alcohol hidden nice.

O - Overall this was a rather solid beer. Nice fruity notes, very solid.

Serving Type: can

Pours a slight hazy orange. Looks light and bright without the deep orange tones. Foam sticks around nicely. Smells like dank, overripe fruits. No citrus, just fleshy stone fruits. A little bit of a crackery malt body behind it. Taste follows the nose nicely with a great balance of soft fruits, earthy bitterness, and it all goes down incredibly smooth. This beer doesn't smack you in the face or insult your well being, but rather showcases its wallet in the kindest way. Well done.
