Overall a great double IPA. It is very easy to drink and I find it refreshing. Very nice citrus flavor, gold color. It drinks easy yet has higher alcohol. Overall it is an IPA I will surely buy again.

I was expecting a stronger version of Flower Power (by Ithaca) when I picked this up. While strictly speaking, ingredient wise, this isn't the case; as far as my memory goes this beer meets with my expectation. I would like to do a side by side with Flower Power to confirm my suspicions; this reads to me as a deeper, heavier rendition of its sister beer. There are floral notes on the nose and palate. Hop bitterness is steady and smokey. This reads as a little boozy to me in the finish.
There are many good double IPA's out there and this is one of them! Not one of the more interesting ones, in my experience, but I'm happy to have this as a local option.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a cloudy golden/orange color with a 1 inch head. Smell is dominated by citrus. Taste is citrus, some tropical fruits, medium bitterness, alcohol is well hidden. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer, but not spectacular.
