Medium gold, clear, light head. Aroma is sweet citrus fruit, light woody spice cherry. Sweet malt, not too sweet. Malty slick, clean, resin, bit of pine, cherry wood, chery pine finish. Pretty nice for a double this size. Don’t get tropical as much as I get a berry cherry type character.

Bottle. Translucent brass color with a big sudsy off-white head that has good retention. The aroma is mild with pine, sweat and some indistinct citrus. Taste is wonderfully complex with pine, mango, sweet melons and passion fruit. The palate is a bit heavy for an IPA with a high level of viscosity. Overall: Decent.
