Valley Surprise Double IPA pours out a clear, dark gold color with copper highlights, and an off-white colored head. The aroma is a pungent marriage of dank, earthy, hop notes with very slight tropical fruit character. The flavor is a melange of toasty and caramel malts juxtaposed against candied grapefruit peel, pine needles, and hints of tropical fruit. This is a full bodied double IPA, with a dry, slightly astringent finish, and an appropriate level of carbonation.
