Waconia Birthday Series Double IPA

Waconia Birthday Series WBC DIPA. 88 IBUs. 9% alc./vol. Waconia Brewing, Waconia, MN.

Clear, bright golden coloring, large and lasting, sturdy head of creamy, ivory-toned foam.

In the nose: Beautiful citrus and pine. Fruity, yet dry. Nice. 

In the mouth: Bright, juicy, hoppy as they come. Big bitterness. Big citrus. Bold and beautiful. Exactly what I want in a double IPA, bitter, dry, arresting and thrilling. Grabs the senses and gives them a shake. Exciting stuff. 

Good job, Waconia, this is one that can go toe to toe with other more famous DIPAs. I'm going to keep my eye on you guys.
