Insight Phantom Taxi

Insight Phantom Taxi Double IPA. 9% ABV. 84 IBU. Insight Brewing, Minneapolis, MN.

Lightly clouded, bright golden coloring, lush white head above. Looking good.

In the nose: big ol' pine and citrus, lemon and grapefruit and pineapple, oh, my. Lots of beautiful, bitter notes, right on target.

In the mouth: more bracingly bitter attacks on the palate, flush with citrus fruit and more. Big flavors, big alcohol, big bitterness. I can dig it. Not a bad DIPA, not bad at all.

Some gobbledygook from the website: This Double IPA is bursting at the seams with flavor! We didn't hold back on the hops with this one, so be prepared for full-on citrus and mango aromas finishing with a ton of grapefruit and tropical fruit in the flavor. With a light and balanced malt body, the hops shine through creating a bold, hoppy brew.
