The beer is a brownish gold with mild head and lacing. It's got a haze that's caused by the considerable particulate presence. Smell is dank and hoppy with a definite honey background. Taste? Delicious. Hoppiness is there in the bitter forefront, but the sweet honey asserts itself and it leads to a taste combination that works together, not against each other. Feel is dominated by the strong alcohol, kind of juicy, well balanced, easy to drink for a beer that's strong in a couple different ways.
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.
