4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Pours a transparent copper amber with a well-lacing froth of off-white head. Aroma of fresh resiny piny and grapefruit citrus hops over a sweet caramel malty backdrop. Body starts with good fullness and lots of juicy flavor hops and resiny bitterness well balance with sweet caramel and toffee before a full, bittersweet finish. A well-made and enjoyable double IPA.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Enjoyed at Pizza Plant Transit, improving bottle selection here with what’s a little off the beaten track. This one is all malts and bitterness, fortunately both are tasty and balance themselves, so decent beer for the style. Passable appearance, aroma, mouthfeel.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Poured crystal-clear reddish-orange with a moderate, well-retained cap of beige head. The aroma picked up juicy grapefruit, pine, and pineapple over a bed of sweet caramel.. some redder fruits and perfumey notes as well.. very sweet on the back of the nose with some alcohol warmth. The flavor found sweet caramel and redder fruits at the core with a lot of resiny bitterness around (grapefruit and pine primarily, backed by perfume).. warm on the back, but there were enough residual sugars to mask the full hit of alcohol. Medium-plus bodied and a tad grainy on the palate.. too aggressive in the form of bitters and booze at times.. for the most part a solid drinker.
