Meh. Glad I got to finally try this, but I don't think it really lived up to the hype for me. Very okay and would probably have again, but won't actively seek this out.

S- sweet citrus and malt.

T- well balanced between hops and malt. Citrus flavors from hops balanced by maltiness.

F- good mouthfeel, not very carbonated

O- great double IPA, well balanced and delicious.

From the growler, it pours a reddish amber with a moderate head. Lacing as you enjoy it... Citrus scent is evident. Smooth with a light bite of hops. Yum!
