Bottle. Pours clear orange with a decent size off white head that sticks around due to the amount of carbontation. Citrus and malt aroma. Fair amount of hop bitterness to give this brew the double IPA name. Alcohol level is well hidden by the malt and hops. Excellent balance.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
1/05/2011: Ass Kisser Double IPA... Aroma: Smells like
a freshly peeled clementine or tangerine. Appearance: Murky darker
amber color; thick, lasting off-white head. Flavor: Thick, soapy,
muted citrus; weird maltiness; numbing herbal bitterness; lots of
grass or alfalfa. Palate: Medium; smooth. Overall: I think I’ll
pass on a second glass...

Good hoppiness. Pours a nice cloudy amber from bomber. Good hop smell, but there is a sense of over ripe eggplant. Resinous, sticky head that remains as a ring.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance was hazy orangish gold with whitish lasting creamy 2 finger head, spotty lacing. Aromas are citrus fruits, crystal, pale malts, smell very inviting. Taste upfronts are sweet malt backbone, just the right amount. Hops tangerine, orange, lemon, grapefruit then hints of pine with no alcohol present. Palate was soft creamy CO2 with medium body, lasting medinical bite is not a balanced finish. The bottle may have oxygenation, need to try another.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours ruby-tinted amber with a large, lasting head.
Heavy malt on the nose along with piny resinous hops. Very malty aroma.
Very malty flavours too, clean sweet malt throughout. Also piny and minty hops with a bit of resinous bitterness in the finish.
Carbonation is a little aggressive.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from bomber into snifter. Dirty, cloudy redish orange with little to no head. Alcohol taste right up front and remains the whole time. Underneath that is a citrusy hop with a malty aftertaste. Not bad, but doubt I'll buy again.

2.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Better Beer Of The Month Club. Cloudy amber. Tangerine, diluted grapefruit juice and citrus oil aroma, tastes violently unpleasing bitter, medium body and long, bitter finish. Unbalanced and unpleasing.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours hazy orange with a finger of off-white head. Decent hoppy aroma. Unfortunately the flavor doesn’t live up. Call me unsophisticated, but I likes my IPAs (especially doubles) to be big, bright, and in-my-face. Frankly this is a bit too mellow. Overall, an apathetic "meh".

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy deep gold with a thick, 2 finger head that leaves gobs of lace. Aroma is dominated by malts and yeast with hops being secondary. Flavor is to the sweet side. Bready and the hop profile is tropical fruits. There is some astringent bitterness on the finish. Heavy bodied.
