Hands down my favorite IPA. It's also the IPA that got me into IPAs after years of trying them and not caring for them. So smooth. Strong flavor without any unpleasant bitterness whatsoever. I wish it was available in the Northeast.

Very citrusy, 9%. One of my faves. Shame it's seasonal 😞.

Wee heavy on the alcohol content, but amazing flavor! Sweet start with feel of a DIPA. Hop/citrus flavor kicks in midway and the finish is clean and refreshing. Hard to believe that it is rated at 80 IBU. I had one 12 ounce bottle and I am already buzzed! Enjoy, but drink with caution.

Smooth. Just misses being a 5 star cuz it does not achieve perfection in any characteristic

Apricots and some mango on the nose and flavor, a tad alcohol taste, very strong and a little bitter finish. Seems like it could also be considered a strong ale. As it warms up alcohol subsides and a bit of peach comes out. Very nice double IPA!
