4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from a bomber into a Satan glass. Golden-orange color, almost transparent and practically no head.
Amazing floral aroma. Lots of citrus, grapefruit mostly and little honey.
Clean taste at first, I can taste grapefruit, lots of bitter hops in the finish. It ambushes the taste buds because there is nothing suggesting the impending hops assault (except the obvious that it is a Hair of the Dog DOUBLE IPA).
Surprisingly soft (but not creamy) at first. Low carbonation.
This IPA really surprised me in the best way. The way that the hops sneaked up and the soft mouthfeel; unexpected but they worked out well. Well done
On tap at the brewery. Pours a hazed apricot amber with a thin white head. Soft citrus on the nose, a bit of musk, citrus, toast, malt. Dank weed on the nose, papaya, malt. Medium bodied, big spicy malt, toast, warm melon and spongy tropical fruit. Malt, a bit of citrus, toast, malt. Slow malt into the finish, a bit of grapefruit, toast, malt. Sticky and sweet, but the caramel fades to a low quality grapefruit bitterness.

Bottle to tulip.
The appearance was a golden sunshine yellow color with a two finger’s worth of white foamy head. Seemed to really take it’s time in dissipating, I didn’t mind. Some heavy lace ran here and there.
The aroma spoke of some sweet to soft spicy rye, light floral hop tones, some herbal, light citrus, a touch of resin, light passion fruit and ended with some sweet fresh grassy tones.
The flavor came between the sweet to spicy portions and then subtly allowing the passion fruit to make a light presence. Not much of an aftertaste, seemed somewhat fresh piney to that passion fruit with a cohesive piney to grassy and passion fruit sweet sort of finish.
The palate was about medium bodied with a good sipping quality about it. Carbonation felt spot on. ABV felt as projected. Bitterness was there yet contained enough to not impart much hop abrasion.
Overall, well, damn! I totally understand the hype train behind this one. I’m jumping on!
