What's on the Bottle: "This Double IPA is light colored and juicy! With massive amounts of Galaxy, Citra, and Chinook hops in both the whirlpool and fermenter, the aroma and flavors are definitely Hoppy AF!"

REVIEW:
Appearance (5%): Pours clear golden into a pint glass. A few millimeters of white head. 4.25/5

Smell (25%): Malty, dank mango and grapefruit, with other tropical citrus notes. 4.25/5

Taste (40%): Dank, malty, and citrusy, yet smooth and very drinkable. Juicy. Little to no alcohol detected. A sweet malty aftertaste with some orange and tangerine in there. 4.25/5

Mouthfeel (10%): Medium-full bodied, syrupy and sticky on the tongue with pleasing citrus bitterness. 4.25/5

Overall (20%): An awesome Double IPA. A nice first experience with Everybody's Brewing, thanks to an article I read on New School Beer. For me, 7.5% ABV and 85 IBUs are right around the ideal specs for a Double IPA. This one had the right amount of punch, flavor, and overall tropical feel to make me a fan.  4.25/5

Final Weighted Rating: 4.25/5
