3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2015 Bottle at home. 22 oz. Starts off strong With a sharp initial bite of hoppiness. Bite does not linger in your mouth. Like an absentee father: here today, gone tomorrow. Notes of citrus, pine needles, and dandelion. Very drinkable. Not boozy like most double IPAs. Good IPA to start your night off with, if that's your thing.

Dark orange and clear pour with hardly any head, from 22oz bottle at home. From Blackwells. Almost red. Aroma is juicy, tart, apple, and sweet. Taste is bitter and juicy, fruity, hoppy, and has a slight vanilla finish. Unusual but pretty damn tasty.

pours dark orange with a small soapy off white head and sparse lacing. Nose is big c hops c rackery malt lots of grapefruit and alcohol detected. Flavors are mostly c hops and tbe aforementioned malt base. Very balanced IIPA here however lacks much complexity. Becomes a tad sweet as it warms with long g rapefruity finish. Decent

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Downtown Spirits, Seattle
Beautiful amber color, bright and clean, with medium sized compact head. Mild aroma of resiny hops and caramelly malt. Good body strength; the flavor is essentially based o malt and caramel, with a touch of cereals; it’s lean, with just a bit of sweetness, so it doesn’t get cloying; the hops are not very bright, but they still carry a good degree of bitterness and some hop resins; bitter orange peel in the final.
Not vibrant, but a solid brew.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour is a dark amber with a small white head. Aroma is piney hop and very bready. Flavor is more of the piney hop and also a very heavy and chewy malt. A slight alcohol burn also emerges after the swallow. This was just ok. Not enough of the hops and a way too heavy malt bill make this slightly above average.

Bottle. Pours a coppery orange with a thin head and delicious aromas of papaya, oranges, a little pine and toffee. Flavor loses a little of the distinction that comes through in the nose, though and the thing ends up as a well balanced DIPA without a direction to the hops. The bitterness is just that... bitterness, but not distinctly tropical or citrus or any other path I can follow. That said, it has a nice zing to it and things balance out very nicely.
