I smell a pleasant mix of resin and citrus followed by a little orange citrus, biscuit malt, and a touch of coconut/tropical fruit. I also detect some underlying generic spice. The flavor is fuller than the aroma suggests. I get a lot of resin flavors, some citrus, and a firm, bitter finish. There is more tropical fruit and citrus in the flavor than in the nose. The malt is highly restrained for both aroma and flavor. The resin lingers in the long aftertaste. This is a fairly dry Double IPA with a firm crisp finish. It’s a pleasant beer, more balanced and much more drinkable than many Double or Imperial IPAs.
