Beer Review #138
My Thoughts: The color of this beer was hazy orange with a moderate foamy head that lingered on for quiet a while. The smell was both sweet and hoppy at the same time with rich scents of orange, peach and mango coming through. The taste started out with a quick burst of orange bitterness that was quickly followed by a rush of bubbly and sweet mango and citrus that was very pleasing. A slight malt backbone shows up more towards the end, and right at the end a mild lingering bitterness remains. To me though, this tasted more like an IPA than a Double IPA, it was rated at 86ibu. The mouthfeel was a little creamy/sticky with a medium body and average carbonation. This beer was very easy to drink and the 8.6% ABV was not noticeable at all. If you enjoy a citrus style IPA this beer is worth a try, but like I said I have a hard time putting this into the DIPA category.
