This is going to be a quick review.  AND... The review below is what I and only I think of it based on what I tasted.  This beer tastes like it can have a lot of different opinions ok? Ok.  Let's begin shall we?

The smell of this beer has a really defined citrus aroma.  The smell is intriguing.  The citrus aroma is inviting.  The taste is also very unique and surprising.  You'd expect it to have a serious hop flavor because it's a double IPA, but it all comes down to the malt taste.  It has a real deep malt taste.  So much that it masks the hop aroma.  But that's not necessarily a bad thing.  I'll admit that this beer is not well balanced but I do like the taste.  It has a medium finish (medium bitterness) and the aftertaste does linger longer than I would like but it's not a bad beer overall.  If you like beer that is more malty than anything else, try this one.
