Bottle. The pour was a hazy golden yellow with an average sized white creamy head that reduced down to some puddled residue, which clung onto the edges of the glass and lasted throughout creating some excellent streaky lacing.
The aroma was strong of a floral hop, a grain malt and a soapy yeast with notes of grapefruit, orange and a bit of honey.
The taste was bitter and mildly sweet with a nice fruity citrus note (orange) and a hint of honey in the beginning, and then became much bitterer and had a nice hoppy grapefruit finish. The flavor lasted a good longtime letting the taste of bitter hops and a light sweet citrus flavor combine on the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was just a shade beyond light in body with a bold dry texture and a lively carbonation.
Overall a very flavorful DIPA with a nice sweet fruity twist and the perfect balance of hops, which totally concealed the high alcohol content.

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.
