Tropical fruits, mango, passion fruit, sweet malts, bread, caramel, honey. Hazy gold, medium, creamy, white head. Light sweet. Very juicy tropical fruits again, more ripe mango and passion fruit, soft carbonation, medium bodied, bitter and dry finish.

Tap. Good, if simple and straightforward strong IPA. Gold pour that doesn’t really stand out. Plenty of hops though, will well-masked alcohol. Very drinkable and solid.

Loved this. Plenty of fruity, perfumey hops, but all very delicately and without brute force like so many Double IPA’s. Balance!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ Open Baladin, Rome. Pours slightly hazy bronze with a big and frothy head. The aroma features a strong punch of American hoppiness: citrusy and resinous notes and some tropical fruits. Taste is medium to heavily bitter; very hoppy with citrus fruits, especially grapefruit, and resin rising. The palate is medium-bodied, slick and smooth; excellent drinkability. Very tasty and refreshing. Predominantly hoppy and fruity DIPA, no residual malt sweetness.
