Nice ruby color, solid head. Smells fruity maybe a little cherry blossom and honeydew. Taste follows the nose but is more boozy. Good tropical ipa with the malt backbone well balanced though

One of the best double IPA's I have ever tasted. Incredibly balanced, nice hop vs. fruit hit, great drinkability. Not nearly as bitter as you would expect for 9+ ABV (will sneak up on you quickly if having more than one). Terrific IPA!!
