Poured from a 12 oz. can into a IPA glass.

The color is a bright gold with two fingers of foamy white head and some nice thick lacing left on the glass.

The smell is hoppy at first with a piney aroma that is an earthy with a hint of cut grass. There some slight aroma of grapefruit and tangerine that makes the aroma bit juicy and less dry.

The taste is fruity at first with some touches of tangerine and lemon then a dry bitterness comes in and brings in a slight resin flavor that lays on the tongue and stays there for a time. There are some hints of sweetness that is here briefly but then get taken over again by the bitterness each time it pokes through the hop flavor to even things out.

This beer has a medium body and a good drinkable feel that goes down easy and leaves something after it’s gone. The aftertaste is pretty impressive and a little strong at times but still enjoyable as it lets some of the hop flavor linger a bit before slipping away.

Revisited 1/26/18

Pours a nice light clear amber color with a slight head and lacing. Aroma has pine and hop hints, the taste follows the nose with pine and hop flavors. A light bodied well balanced beer.

Rated it unreasonably low a while back, because I thought it was just a boring standard IPA, but having it again I realize that it's actually very balanced so that nothing jumps out at you, making it a reliably drinkable double IPA. So many out there that goof it and are way too hoppy, bitter or just taste like you're drinking either a Christmas Tree or a ground up grapefruit skin.

Very good IPA. Nice balance of flavors. One of my standards when I am out to eat.

Very slow pour to keep the head from stealing all the carbonation from this one. Copper brew with a finger of head on top, nice lacing. Big nose to it, big fruity hops, maybe some pineapple, grapefruit. Almost a spice to it. Flavor is likewise - big dirty hops up front. The tiniest hint of candy malt in there. A surprisingly West Coast feel to this IPA. Really tasty - Tröegs does yet another style expertly.

Nice head and nice lacing. Smells like your run-of-the-mill IPA. Hoppy but not bitter. Flavor is almost "light" IPA with 1/2 lager, 1/2 IPA. Pine flavor and scent. Slightly better than average.

A nice hoppy finishing IPA! Nice mouthfeel and a malty initial taste.

Poured from bottle to tulip. Liquid gold and crystal clear. Aggressive pour yields three fingers of fizzy head that quickly dissolves into a small, solid cap of foam. Rings of spotty lacing line the sides. Aroma is juicy, honey sweet, and just a touch of booze. Flavor is same with a bit of resin and pine bite. Kinda sorta a DIPA, but if my beloved Two Hearted is an IPA, this is an IPA.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Look - Golden with minimal white head

Smell -nice aroma...citrus and hops

Taste - follows the smell...a little alcohol burn in the aftertaste

Feel - light and not as much chew as most DIPA, but smooth...almost an in betweener

Overall - as a south central PA boy, Troeg Perpetual and Nugget Nectar are 2 of my favorites for the price
