Twist of Cane Double IPA

Today I'm checking out Tomoka Brewing's Twist of Cane Double IPA. Really nice label design with a twister forming over a field of sugar cane. There's a story on the back of the can too, setting your expectations for a "perfect storm of complex taste." 8.6% alcohol. 75 IBU

Nice bright citrus orange with a caramel sweet background. Sweet flavors to start: malty, sugary, rich caramel. A decidedly bitter citrus and pine answer follows along with some spiciness. There is some alcohol and astringency at the finish, which I'd have preferred to not show as much. Definitely a hoppy monster though. Check it out!
