On tap at Hay Merchant, Houston. Very enjoyable beer. Nice head and great lacing, the color is dark orange. Aroma is typical DIPA stuff, big citrus, tropical fruits, etc. Taste is the same. Great DIPA, but it can’t touch Apex.

This is a showcase of Of hops, ones that aren’t typical of an IPA or normal for my palate, and because of that I give it props.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This double immediately presented the boozy aroma and taste. The bitterness and malt helped curb the alcoholic notes. The extreme tastes and overall flavors make this a sipping beer.
