Pours a hazy amber with a small white head and lots of white particles. Aroma of honey, floral, citrus, and sweet malts. Taste is grapefruit, lemon zest, floral, light honey, sweet malts, and very bitter. The bitterness lasts throughout and finishes the same way. Body was medium to full.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy gold pour with a 1 finger creamy white head and a bunch of protein floaties. Aroma is citrus candy, floral hops, Crystal malt sweetness, lime and a little toast. Flavor is big on citrus, starts out like blood oranges and lime, floral hops, a little planty spice, caramel, toast, biscuit, and a faint medicinal note. Medium body, syrupy to slick feel and light to medium carbonation. Good stuff, I could see people being grossed out by the amount of floaties, but I guess it doesnít bother me. The palate could use some work and the medicinal notes in the finish knock it back a peg though.

Hazed light gold, creamy short head, light lace. Citrusy bready aroma.Slight floral and fruit. Taste is sharp tangy citrus with full body wheat like bready malt. Very bitter citrus grassy tart. Overall not real impressive for a double ipa. Only honey I get in this seems to be kind of a slightly funky earthiness to it, yet has a tart citrus which is probably just from the hops.

Draught at The Blue Door (Longfellow) in Minneapolis. Semi-strong citrusy nose. Hazy but very bright gold/amber color. Thick caramel and chewy hops, citrus, and overripe peaches. Medium body. Very tasty. Just a bit cloying. But good enough.

Tap. Gold in goblet. Honey and alcohol aroma. Sweet and slightly sour. Has double ipa elements but has the sugar honey flavor that might be a bit much. Donít love the finish.

Widely available in Wisconsin and I have gone through dozens of 6-packs. For a while my store had it priced at only $6 so I went nuts and bought a lot. Pours a nice gold color with small head. Very nice citrus aroma and tastes more like an IPA vs an Imperial IPA, but still very good. Taste is sweet, almost sugary, hoppy. Really cannot taste the 9% at all.
