Tap at Peppercorns.
Nice creamy almost 1 finger head fades slowly nice lacing, hazy grapefruit reddish orange color.
Nose big hops, spicy fruity citrus hops, some tropical fruit, guava, tangerine, sweet malts reddish candy malts, light candied orange peel hops.
Taste light bitter rind, lots of hops, spicy chewy hops, pine, etc, like chewing on a hop pellet! Some tropical fruit citrus, light grapefruit, some grapefruit pith, some guava, tangerine, bitter citrus rind, slightly astringent, but nice semi sweet malts bring a nice base and balance, light reddish caramel malt. The chewy earthy spicy hops lingering forever on the finish, light tropical fruit and citrus, pine, etc lingering, drier not really sticky, very little booze.
Mouth is fuller bodied, nice carb, just a little booze, light hop oils.
Overall nice, big hops, quite bitter but malty balance, good hop fruits and citrus, good but not amazing.

Wormtowns newest double ipa, this was brewed with ten plus hops including Amarillo, Centennial, Kohatu, Summit, and Simcoe. Near the end of the boil Buddha's hand and grapefruit peel was added. 120+ IBUs.
A - Poured into a standard snifter a nice hazy dark orange hue with a wonderful one finger thick and creamy white head that fades slowly to leave tons of side lacing and a thick sudsy blanket. Just excellent. Great appearance for a Wormtown.
S - Aromas of big tropical juice here with lots of light pineapple, subtle papaya, and mango. Great bitter grapefruit. Buddha's hand fruit comes out in the aroma as well, its own pithy tropical fruit aroma I've come to love in Chinese candies.
T - Taste is is a wash of hops all of which play very nicely together. Bitter pine, tropics, and faint malts are balanced nicely. I really like what each hop brings to the table. Deliciously bitter with Buddha hand peel coming out nicely in an almost chewy way. Very nicely integrated throughout the brew with the grapefruit peel really lingering on that and finish making a naturally bitter finish even more so. Again, excellent.
M - Mouthfeel is wonderful. Crisply carbonated keeps the alcohol from weighing this one down. That said its still a somewhat sipper as that 9.6% definitely hits good and hard.
O - Overall I really enjoyed this Wormtown offering. Hands down this is my second favourite new release they've had over the past 8+ months (Norm wins that category). A very delicious DIPA one of the best they've done. Definitely worth getting if one is in the area. Excellent.
