Style: American Double IPA
Brewer Description: (from website) Drawing inspiration from the fidelity of a saison – rustic, alluringly cloudy and crisp – this imperial IPA was brewed using oats and wheat. Dry-hopped twice and completely untouched post fermentation to preserve aroma and flavor.

Intro: A 330ml bottle with a best before date of 5th September 2018. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: An extremely hazy mango milk orange colour with a one finger white head that dissipated fairly quickly while leaving sparse lacing.
Aroma: Tropical mango and peach with a touch of pineapple to begin, followed by citrusy grapefruit rind, pine and dankness.
Taste: Bitter citrus grapefruit rind and orange peel balanced nicely with lightly sweet tropical mango, peach, apricot and hints of pineapple and pine.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Wow, this was just an excellent juicy double IPA that was so easy and enjoyable to drink.
