A vigorous pour from a 16 oz. can produced a bold pine sap aroma accompanied by citrus hop notes and the honeyed effect of caramel malt.

Featuring a light gold color with slight haze and a medium white head, this beer's flavor profile featured a medley of hops that were distinctly unveiled in a flowery blend of citrus and pine. A very sweet caramel malt base both supports and balances the high hop levels present here.

This is a full-bodied rendition of the style with carbonation at the lower end of the style spectrum, while the alcohol content was quite evident -- contributing to this beer's warming presence.

Very true to form, this Double IPA stands tall and should be considered for consumption as a fine example of the style.
