3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Monument in Concord, CA. Pours darkish gold with a slight white head. Aroma is smoothly hoppy - must be a mix - but tropical fruit and citrus are probable. Full bodied. There’s a nice caramel backbone, and there’s a lot of hop - floral, citrus rind, and perhaps pine or earthy. It’s very hoppy, but not harsh. It’s finishing very hoppy, definitely bitter, but entirely refined. Excellent.

surprisingly fresh and crisp despite its weight. deliciously well balanced and complex in the mouth with hints of both unripe and ripe citrus fruits. Nothing shouty, just a great double ipa. one of the more elegant examples I’ve tasted.

Holy tropical fruit...from the aroma of pineapple & mango to the smooth velvety sweet texture. The flavour manages a perfect blend of sweet and tart. It is the fruit smoothie of beers... Sounds bad but it's fantastic!

1st March 2015
Lightly hazy gold beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is airy with good fine carbonation. Nice light pale malts with a good touch of creamy sweetness. Hops start spicy and grassy with a slight herbal vibe. Semi sweet pine and then more hop spice. Little bitter floralnes and light and juicy tropical fruits. Airy finish. Hops spice linger. A light and tasty DIPA that goes down far too easily!

While the nz hops give this a fresh aroma and flavour, which is very easy to drink, I’ve had better DIPAs.
