My Bottom Line:
Piney, wooden and floral hoppiness are greeted by severe alcohol in this rough Double IPA.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy head of foam settles atop the translucent golden amber, lacing admirably all the way down.
-Mouthfeel is fluffy and almost rich.
-Alcohol heat clashes with the earthy hop bitterness.
-Malts don’t develop much in the way of flavor.

A major component of hop flavor. Major taste with a flavor of bitterness. Taste is too much on the citrus not enough malt.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a light orange/amber with some off-white head. Aroma is a muddled hoppiness (nothing really sticks out i.e. citrus, pine, etc.) and caramel malt. Taste is bitter citrus initially along with a little pine and then the maltiness comes into play leading to a bitter finish. Medium bodied. This beer was a disappointment and many other DIPAs are light years ahead of it.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from State Line, 1/31/13
Aroma: The nose is clean and hoppy, with grapefruit, citrus, orange rind, and some pine
Appearance: It pours a mostly clear orange color with a white head and mid-plus sticky lace
Flavor: It has a nice hopppy flavor, with lots of citrus type notes and some dank, resiny hops too
Palate: The body is medium-plus, it feels sticky, with average-plus carbonation, and a dry finish
I was pretty impressed by this one. There’s a really solid citrus and resin style hop profile going on here. Nice stuff. To be honest, I wasn’t expecting it to be this good.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The aroma is hoppy with pine and citrus hops as well as caramel malt. The appearance is light amber with a foamy head. The taste is like the aroma but astringent. The palate is smooth. Overall a decent beer but to astringent.
