3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
One of the more well balanced doubles: not too sweet, not overly bitter. Fruits come through on flavor but not on aroma where this beer is a little weak.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Uber. Pours bright golden with thick creamy head. Aroma is juicy floral hops. Taste is kinda flat piney and floral bitter hops. None of those great citrus notes in the aroma come through in the taste at all - weird! Thin body to stand up to all those hops. It’s been a while but I remember liking their Pilot series DIPA better than this. Something just a bit off here.

Aroma good, appearance golden with pretty bubbles in the pint. Just the right amout of foam that lasted through conversation. Mild hoppiness. Bartender said it was one of those she could drink six of then finally realize how drunk she was. I agree thanks to the subtle but effective 8.6. Rad beer!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Chuck’s 85th St. Market, pours a hazy copper orange with a small beige head. Aroma of rich resinous hops, tropical fruitiness and a big caramel malt backbone. Flavour is similar, with loads of fruity, resinous hops and a whopping caramel malt backbone. Well-balanced, with a big malt backing to go with the high hops. Great stuff, but a tad sweet due to the big malt backbone.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap @ Black Bottle in Fort Collins. Pours a fairly clear, orange appearance with a cream colored head. Somewhat spicy resiny hoppy, piney, orange fruity, a bit toasty malty aroma. Somewhat spicy hoppy flavor with notes of tangerine, toasty malty, and herbs. Light booze on the finish. Not bad.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Golden bronze with a nice head. Rather hop-skunky nose. Dank beer body with a harsh bitter current. Like a swilly dive bar beer mixed with an Imperial IPA. I wish they would bring back their ESB.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at SB. Pours a clear dark amber with a dense and creamy tan head that definitely sticks around. Nice fresh piney nose with some sweet tangerine undertones behind. Great soft and sweet combination, but shows some forward power. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toast and caramel on the mid palate with bright crisp pine and citrus fruit over that. Clean refreshing finish. So cool to see Alaskan stretching its legs with more new recipes now and then.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours golden amber lotta head from tap, smells of pears and strawberries and fir trees. Super light bitter taste, very drinkable. Tastes more like a good ipa than double. Good pleasant lingering bitterness.
