Piney hops control the nose. Beautiful dark amber pour with a thin white head. Bitter grapefruit and caramelized sugar compete for your taste buds. Palate is medium bodied. Overall, a wonderful double. This will definitely be in the fridge in the future.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Copper color. Not much aroma. Bitter, malty, not a lot of hop flavor for something with "hop" in its name. Just okay for a double IPA.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Copper amber color with a small, creamy off white head. Aroma of orange peels and herbal hops. Taste is tart citrus with a touch of bready malt and bitter resiny hops that fade into a long medicinal finish. In the high side of medium bodied but with a pretty lively carbonation. Itís a pretty good IPA

2/11/15 nice piney aroma. Copper colored. A bit too much bitter aftertaste for me. Can definitely taste the alcohol.
