3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
335 ml bottle
Copper-orange clear beer with dense off-white head leaving big lacing. Aroma has grapefruit, resin, caramel, tropical fruits and slight alcohol. Flavor is sweet malty and bitter with alcohol. Palate is quite full and soft with heavy bitterness. Finish has quite strong bitterness. Aftertaste has alcohol, resin, pine and grapefruit. Too much alcohol taste to me. Could work as a slow sipper with more interesting malt base, or as an IPA with less alcohol, but this way it’s worst of both worlds.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bread, nuts, toast, floral, pine, citrus, herbs, alcohol, resin and alcohol.
Alcohol comes through too evidently. Would be interesting to taste this with 7-8%.

WHAT THE H@LL! LET ME TELL YOU EVERYBODY NOW THAT A DUBEL IPA CAN NOT HAVE ONLY 85 IBU; THIS ONE HAS NO HOPS SMELL OR FLAVER. THEY’RE SHOULD HAVE CALLED IT A LITE BEER. PROBLY NOT DO THEY’RE OWN HOPS NETHER. SINCE OBAMA STOLE THE ELECTION IN 2006 THESE HOPS AND GET STUFF LIKE HERCULEES AND HOOCH MAKERS LAGUNITAS. BUTT LET ME TELL YOU PLINY GETS IT (DO YOU GET ME NOW!) A CONIESEURE CAN TASTE IF BEERS HAS LESS THAN 200++ IBU WHICH IS WHY ITS THE STRAW BROKE THE CAMELS BACK FOR PLINY. SOME PEOPLE THINK THAT PLINY COSTS TO MUCH MONEY BUT IF YOU DO THE MATH PER IBU ITS PROBLY THE BEST DEAL. IDIOTS.

3.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap pour at Upstairs (Mtc) of cloudy orange amber with 1/2 inch white head. Hint of citrus & pine scents. Rough initial taste of grapefruit with hint of tar. Unlike other double IPAs, bitterness does not fade much. Taste is very much "in you face", but not overly complex. Interesting to try, but not my mug of ale.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
One of my favorite Imperial IPAs. I forget why exactly. I need to go drink one again real soon. Suffering from beer amnesia. Too many beers, not enough recall!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours typical IPA amber with a quite white head and a moderately hopped nose. Flavor is a little restrained on the hops for the gravity but still plenty of character and, perhaps most importantly, a lot of balance. Alcohol is well hidden. Not exceptional among its peers but it does everything right.

Old rating. Murky dark orange. Big malt body. Citrus and fruity hops, surprisingly mild bitterness. Some booziness. Clean all

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Poured from the tap at the Biergarten in Charleston, SC into a pint glass.
Aroma- A big hop and citrus aroma, very nice
Appearance- A mildly murky copper colored beer with a thick small white head
Taste- A nice malt and hop mix that hides the high ABV well.
Palate- A medium to heavy bodied beer with moderate carbonation.
Overall- A great DIPA, highly recommended.
