Lost Continent Double IPA ~ Grand Teton Brewing Co.

Appearance: pours liquid orange and mandarin. The head is white, bready, and nominal. Broken collar surrounds a broken thin collar. Swirls with spots but not much else.

Nose: freshly cut and squeezed mandarin, tangerine, and grapefruit tantalize. Pine and mint along the edges. Juicy. Dew drops decorate pine tree and citrus fruit. Hints of cantaloupe fresh from the fridge, sliced, and ready for the munching.

Palate: orange, mandarin, and cantaloupe. Fresh and exuberant with juicy sweetness followed by gentle bitterness of the skin. White grapefruit and juice. Pine is last, lingering along with mint tingling the back of my tongue after each swallow. A whisper of lavender flirts with the mint.

Final Thoughts: it was a beautiful Imperial IPA. Juicy. Yummy. I want to hold it in my hand and squeeze its succulent juicy innards into my mouth. Lipsmackingdelicious.
