4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
very good double IPA. maybe the recipe has changed because these cans I have all say 9.7% abv. either way, it pours a nice crystal clear golden with a firm head on top. aroma is a little sweet nutty, not too crazy over the top hop aroma. flavor is very citrusy, pineapple, tropical fruity with a great mouthfeel. really resiny, tiny bit oily maybe. alc is well hidden but has nice warming and texture. hop bite isn’t as huge as it could be but im not sure how old this can is. tastes pretty fresh but maybe more subdued than it could be. i’d love to try it on tap, if this had just a little more hop assertiveness it’d be really something. reminds me of firestone’s hop profile, (and they have the oak barrel thing in common as well, i guess!) which i happen to enjoy a lot.

Tap at unos in neshaminy. The aroma is soft - light, mildly Hoppy. The sweetness of the simcoe is the first thing noticeable, but it’s followed by a bitter kick of columbus. The balance is remarkable and the almost ten percent alcohol is masked. Very good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This poured a light orange color with a beige head. Aroma was grassy and citrusy hops as well as a strong caramel and pale malt character. Flavor was a bit thick and cloying maltiness a bit too malt forward and did not allow the hops to shine. A bit of a disappointment.

12 oz. can split with mcberko. Pours a clear yellow amber with a small white head. Aroma of sweet oak, some tropical fruits, caramel and resinous hops. Flavour of resinous hops, lots of oak, caramel. Full-bodied, very dry aftertaste. Well-balanced.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. can, split with Matts_Property, pours a relatively clean golden with a white head. Aroma of resinous hops, some pine and heaps of caramel, sort of a syrupy, vanilla, oaky quality. Flavour of resinous hops, somewhat muted by the oak barrels, with a little vanilla and caramel. Bittersweet finish. Very enjoyable though perhaps lacking in some depth / complexity.

Can. Pours clear dark orange with a medium creamy beige head. The head is slow to recede, and leaves bands of sticky lacing. The aroma is sharp citrus, sugary orangepeel, papaya and guava, and mild vanilla and woody notes. The flavor is oaky, lightly buttery orange, with increasing citrus bitterness throughout, and a lingering pine and citrus rind finish. Some sugary fruit is present in the finish and aftertaste. Medium carbonation and full body; thick, nearly creamy, and a bit of alcohol. Really pretty tasty, I thought.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a very clear golden color with a medium white head...good retention and lacing. Aroma is fairly malty and has a distinct vanilla and orange blossom character...smells a bit like a cream soda dum dum. Flavor is hoppy at first but quickly becomes sweet much like the aroma. Mouthfeel is sticky sweet but becomes earthy in the dry lingering finish. Odd beer...hoppy, sweet, hoppy...bit muddled.

This is an exceptional Double here, from pour, to nose, to taste. Aroma is off the charts! What a panoply of hops! Full on assult of hops on the nose and the taste buds. Somewhere they found some malt for balance and sweetness. Alcohol pretty well hidden for 9.7% It goes without saying this is one of my new favorite DIPAs.

haha, 21st does it again! this beer is hoppy, its oaky, and its strong at 9.7%, and a its a great value at $9 a 4pack. drinks as a great oaky ipa, still has a strong hop bite, not insane, and a bit oaky front to it. drinks well, and of course that its in a can is awesome. big oaky nose, and a huge flavor, a bit much to drink more than 1 can. good stuff.

Bottle. Nose is big with floral and citrus components, tropical fruits and a little piney action. Flavor is sharp and bitter hops, but it is mellowed by the sweet malts. Superbly crafted IIPA. Only negative was that it was served in a little bitch 8 oz. glass. I want more!!
