Another surprisingly light double IPA. Normally in the past the ones I have had boasted a little more flavor, but it's possible because they were bottled it caused the flavors to settle rather than getting it from a keg. Simple and clean, but nothing spectacular

16 ounce can into tulip glass, no can dating. Pours slightly hazy deep golden/amber color with a 2 finger fairly dense and fluffy off white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a large cap that lasts. Thick soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big peach, pineapple, apricot, mango, honeydew melon, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pepper, pine, toasted biscuit, bread dough, light caramel, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/earthy/pine hops, fruity yeast, and bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big peach, pineapple, apricot, mango, honeydew melon, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pepper, pine, toasted biscuit, bread dough, light caramel, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Moderate pine, citrus rind, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of peach, pineapple, apricot, mango, honeydew melon, lemon/orange peel, citrus rind, pepper, pine, toasted biscuit, bread dough, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/earthy/pine hops, fruity yeast, and bready malt flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance. Touch of lingering hop astringency through the glass, but not overwhelming. Moderate increasing dryness from bitterness. Medium carbonation and medium-plus body; with a very smooth, bready/grainy, and sticky/resinous/rindy balanced mouthfeel that is great. Minimal warming alcohol for 9%. Overall this is an excellent DIPA! All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/earthy/pine hops, fruity yeast, and bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink for the ABV, despite the aggressively bitter/drying finish. Quite unique as it only has noble hops, but the yeast adds nice fruity complexity. Big bright earthy/citrusy/spicy hops with balanced malts; but never overly sweet/heavy feeling. A very enjoyable offering, and spot on style example. UncleKorm (1335) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUN 30, 2017
Can poured a hazy golden hue w/ small diminishing head. Mild floral aromas. Initial flavor is light sweet w/ a bold bitter finish. Tastes are bread, straw, pine and apricot. Full bodied and a warm finish.

There are some things in life that people simply have to experience first hand. Riding a roller coaster. Catching a wild brook trout. Running a mile for time. Dating someone out of your league…this is what life is all about. If you’re a baseball fan, you have to see a game at Wrigley Field. If you eat food, you have to try the spicy fried chicken at Gus’s Fried Chicken in Memphis. You just have to. You haven’t lived until you’ve experienced that chicken.

Orange pour and a medium head. Full bodied caramel and toast flavor and a light orange aroma. Not the best but not the worst either. Pretty dry as the IBUs would indicate. Andrew196 (1973) - Katy, Texas, USA - NOV 29, 2016
Can to glass - Pours a rich marmalade color, foamy ivory head with sticky lace. Aroma is orange zest, some resin, dough, caramel and alcohol. Pretty full bodied, booze jumps out at me. Citrus and syrupy pine resin on the tongue, more sweet toasty caramel. Decent for the style but it didn’t have enough of its own charm...too much alcohol throughout too. jhamp9 (1931) - Corinth, Texas, USA - OCT 30, 2016
Hazy orange pour with a dense lasting white head. Aroma is candy citrus, bread, grass, and floral. Taste is bready malt, sweet citrus, floral, and some pine. Odd combo of flavors. Medium body. ZacM612 (750) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - OCT 27, 2016
Golden to light amber color, white lacing head. Fruity hop aroma. Bitterness is a little off-balance. Not the best IIPA, but okay. Scopey (15427) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2016 Keg at Littlewoods downtown Houston. It pours cloudy rich amber with a medium white head. The aroma is sweet, sticky, juicy, peach, nectarine and earth. The taste is smooth, bitter, juicy, peach, apricot, grapefruit, mild astringency, soap and some floral notes, with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate, prickly carbonation. A bit harsh perhaps, but nice enough.
