From bottle. Pours brownish. Some orange, grass, grapefruit, but mostly big malt. Alcohol is evident. Too flat and boozy for this hophead.

A murky brown color with a shallow white head. Has a hoppy aroma. The bitterness dominates the flavor, but there’s also some citrus. Finishes dry. Decent beer, though underwhelming for a double IPA.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
aroma is pine, citrus, orange zest, bread toasted malts. Color is hazy amber with soft white head that doesn’t last long leaves a little lacing. Taste is not as hoppy as expected some citrus, pine, grapefruit and apple notes. The malt flavors come through more with hints of bread, caramel, nuts, toasted malt, honey,. Its very boozy more than expected for an IPA of 8%. Palate wise it has ok mouth feel seems to leave a sappy feel in back of mouth that lingers after the swallow. Overall, very average and disappointing because it does not live up to its name.

On tap at the brewery. Nice murky copper color, virtually no head. Not much on the node. Hints of citrus, pine, floral. Semi-dry on the palate. Great IPA.

UPDATED: OCT 26, 2013 Not as hoppy as I would expect based on the name...also, the label says "Double IPA Ale". Which is redundant and repetitive and redundant.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: APR 8, 2014 Bottle: Somewhere between amber and copper, very cloudy except at the very edges of the glass. Beige head shows good retention and leaves some lacing behind. Aroma is perfume hops, slight spicy tones, roses, florals, moderate citrus, grapefruit, and faint apple. Quite a bit of bread and toasted malt on the nose as well. Thick and sticky body... Taste is similar; roses, perfume, white pepper spice, mild grapefruit rind, orange zest. Alcohol is a little noticeable; slice acetone in the finish. Malt is quite heavy as well, toasted bread, faint caramel, lots of crackers with some sweetness. Balance is okay... this beer isn’t bad, it just gets lost on a shelf full of other, better DIPAs.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Hopmouth pours a deep amber almost brown color with a bubbly cream colored head that lasts for a bit and leaves good lacing. The aroma is citrus and pine with a touch of molasses. The flavor is toffee and molasses up front with citrus and pine following and continuing on into the aftertaste. This is a delightful brew. The most intriguing part is that it's a double IPA but at 8% it's not overpowering.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle in an English pint. Pours a dark reddish orange, minimal head, decent lace. The aroma is not really hoppy at all, but more of a cherry and pine type of mixture. The taste is more hoppy than the smell, but it is definitely not what I was expecting. The piney type of flavor really comes through and the finish is a bit dry, and fades into a citrus peel that lingers a tad, and it's a nice finish.
