A double IPA brewed with honey alongside the malt, this one should have a few interesting quirks to its character. The nose is seriously citrusy, dominant grapefruit over passionfruit and rock melon. The honey is in there but it’s hard to get at through all that rambunctious fruit. On the palate there’s a ton of fruity hop character and light, clean malt base and satisfying whack of bitterness. The honey manifests in a weight and lingering sweetness that (successfully) rides the line between satisfying and cloying. A soundly built double IPA with a little bit of extra nuance to test the palate.
