3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Big tight head over somewhat hazy light copper body. Aroma of spices and chili, some citrus, some malt. Taste of upfront bitterness, black pepper in the beginning, some citrus, some malt but not much sweetness. Palate is bitter and peppery.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a light amber with some foamy off-white head. Aroma is citrusy with maybe a bit of noble hops. Flavor packs a quick fruity bitter punch and then fades to a more stale-seeming tartness that is somewhat off-putting. The initial flavor is good but is quickly washed away and replaced with something that is far less appealing.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours hazy copper with white head. Strong spicy aroma. Very spicy for a IPA. Lots of strong citrus flavor, and piney hops. Medium body, little to spicey and not hoppy enough for my tastes. Not bad.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy oragnge-yellow with airy yellow-ish head. Nose of citrus, pine, slightly medicinal. Kind-of meager. Whoa, a bit over-carbonated. Grapefruit, orange, cherry lollipop. Pretty one-dimensional. Kind-of a beer flavored soda. That said, alcohol is present, but well-hidden. Not very well done, but fun. Enjoyable.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Ass Kisser. Gotta admit, I bought this one for the name and the bottle, which features a lip imprint on the posterior of what appears to be a donkey. Busting out the snifter for this guy. Pours a hazy tangerine, very orange in color. Light lacing with a small off white head. Fruits and pine dominate the nose, and thereís a nice sweetness underneath the surface, combined with some doughiness. Not really all that bitter, especially for the style, with a syrupy mouthfeel. While the aroma is quite nice, the taste doesnít quite deliver what the aroma promises. Thereís some hop stuff going on, floral, pine, grass, pineapple, orange. But itís not as pronounced as what Iíve had in other examples of this style. Likewise the malt is there as well, particularly in the sweetness, but itís kind of lacking too. The high ABV leaves a lingering burning in the chest. Thereís something quite off in this beer, somewhat medicinal, Iím not sure. Itís hard to put my finger on it but itís unpleasant. Maybe itís the alcohol Iím not sure. Kind of like taking an average IPA and dumping a shot of vodka in it. If you donít like being able to taste the high ABV in your beers Iíd avoid this one. However if you like IPAs and donít mind the ABV itís an okay example of the style.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Respectable double IPA. Enjoyed in a merlot glass, which I think enhanced aroma and flavor. Hoppy, of course, and bordering on barley wine, but malts and caramel underneath. A bit high priced at $2.99 per bottle, in my opinion, when I can get similar quality for a bit less. Was good to try though.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours golden with some light orange and tall, thick off-white head that slowly fades leaving craters in the pillowing foam and sticky lace. Nose of hay, pine, malt, earth and spice. Malty taste similar to nose. Full bodied with little signs of 9.2%, but missing the citrus I was hoping for. Still, not bad.

2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz bottle. Very disappointing for a Double IPA, closer to an IPA. Hop aroma is the immediate turn-off, smelled like a wet sock. Clarity was lacking and the head only lasted a couple of seconds. Grassy hop flavor. I judged the beer by the label and was extremely disappointed.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tan head light, clear bronze copper color, sweet malt aroma, soft slippery mouth feel, soft carbonation, malt flavors, with a bit of hops on the finish, benign for a douple IPA, fairly strong liquor like finish that got stronger as it warmed
