3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Pours Cloudy deep amber with a beige head that leaves tons of lacing. Earthy hoppy nose (citrus/pine). Well balanced beer hops and caramel malts mixed together, citrus notes and a nice bitter finish; perhaps a bit tame for a double IPA, but overall a very nice and quite enjoyable beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice orangey color, white head. Strong floral aroma and a little bit of veggies/herbs. Taste is much the same, with strong citrus and more of the slight vegetable quality. The hops predominate and stay on the palate. The alcohol is pretty well concealed.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle into a rising tide stemmed snifter. Pours a dark hazy orange ready to turn brown any time now, very autumn like. Head is large, frothy, full and leaves nice lacing. Aroma is skunky malts, old bottle maybe? hop presence is not really noticable, a malt heavy dipa. Murky and questionable citrus tone hover over, as does a gross spoiled fruit essence. Not cool. There is some sweet candied orange that shines though the mess though, thats nice. Taste is funky orange, malt dominates rather than a hop, orange juice, plain melon, sugar, caramel malts, tasty but not dipa tasty. Abv, although high, doesnt prominately add pleasure to this beer. Cool bottle, but maybe a strong ale label would suite this one better.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not a particularly good example of the style. This is much more malty than I would expect from an IPA, much less a double IPA. The roasted malt flavor predominates and there’s really not much hop flavor to compensate. Pours a fairly cloudy, darker brown with mid-sized head. Aromas and flavor are given over to a sweetish, roasted malt, with very little of the expected citrus and piney bitterness.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.

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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bottle. Pours a cloudy dark yellow / orange color with small rocky cream-colored head. Aroma is hoppy and mostly resinous. Sweeter than expected for a double IPA, hoppy but not palate-shattering. Long bitter finish. This is okay, but nothing special. Not bad if you can get it cheap.
