One of Offshores best! It hits every aspect of a IIPA and is the perfect go-to when it's available.

Tap at the brewpub, MV. Written on the menu simply as "Double IPA", and given the difference with the ABV of the other DIPA (the "Stonewall", 8.5%) I figured this was a new beer, or at least a new recipe. Pours rich gold with a creamy, white head. Great nose of rich and juicy grapefruit with hints of peach and honey. Big sweet flavor with plenty more grapefruit and peach preserves, along with some pale and bready malts and a bit of rich, bitter pine. Also some subtle notes of alcohol. Medium to full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sticky sweet finish with moderate piney hop resins, along with marmalade citrus fruits and grass. Pretty darn good on the whole.
