  • Pours almost clear. Eighth inch of white foam covers. Fleeting. Some lacing, minimal, not really sticky.

    Aroma of dank resin, orange, grapefruit, honey with herbal notes. Caramel hop presence is strong.

    Taste of herbal, caramel, possibly toffee throughout. Orange and honey mix with the herbal to create quite the trio. Some bitterness, building with each sip. Late grapefruit.

    High end of medium body, syrupy before the palate adjusts. Medium carbonation. Some alcohol, but not prevalent. Drying but not bone dry. Could be considered a twist on a barley wine as well.

    A nice beer. The hops aren't big enough for me, especially for a DIPA. Think there is complexity causing it to trip on itself. Enjoy!

Beer Notes
  • This Double IPA is infused with a fierce American hop profile and a delicate, bee-crafted orange blossom honey from Northern California. A sting of dankness, floral notes and many a compelling nuance make this spring seasonal delicious. Buzz on, not off.
