2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear Amber color with a thin white head that settles to a film. Aroma is sweet with alcohol and almost no hop presence. Same goes with the taste, not getting much hops, leans way to the malt side. Finish is sweet and dry. Not really great.

bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear medium amber color, beige head cover, stripes of lace. Taste is cloyingly sweet caramel malt that grows until solid citrus hops intervene on the swallow. The hops try to keep up, but the malt is too much. Big, decent, but not much more.

On tap at Detroit airport, guest tap at their Gordon Biersch. Poured a lightly hazy medium towards dark orange, good head. Aroma slight of citric hops, caramel malts, hint of tea. Flavor was a bit of tea and somewhat floral hops, light citrus hop, and a lot of sweet caramel malts. None of the flavors really stood out - just sort of a hodge podge that didn’t really come together for me. Not horrible, but just not for me either.

I love double IPA’s but this one is not too good. Smells like stale alcohol and taste is "medicinal" hoppy with an odd metallic aftertaste. No sir... not for me.

Malty, citrus aroma. Cloudy light rust color with great lacing. Tastes of citrus hops and bitter hops. Palate is full bodied. Overall a wonderful dipa. Do not understand the low rate.

Pour out of 12 oz bottle, dark orange-red pour with white head, aroma brought sweet orange and grapefruit, kind of syrupy with some pine, grass, hints of caramel and toffee, touch of floral notes. Taste was a mix of sweet orange marmalade, grapefruit, pine, grass, some spice, hints of caramel, finishing bitter, dry.

Serving: 12 oz. bottle. Hazy light amber pour. Citrus and floral notes in the nose. Good hop to malt balance, maybe leaning a bit to the hop side. Citrus, yeast, and floral notes build with a lingering aggressive bitterness that doesn’t seem to go away. Not the cleanest IIPA but decent.

Tap at brewery into snifter. Aroma of light citrus hops. Appears gold with thin white head. Little lacing. Taste is almost all hops with citrus and acid. Malty, bitter aftertaste. Light Mouthfeel. Nice, easy drinking dIPA that is not very memorable.

Smell is bright hops with a slight alcohol sniff. Hops smell like sweet flowery rather than evergreen. Nice creamy white head stays at top but doesn’t coat glass much. Color is a golden haze. Taste is lightly sweet. Very dry bitter aftertaste that lingers on tongue. The sourness also lingers on but shorter than bitterness. Body is light with soft carbonation. Finish is again bitter and long with some tart. My first Double IPA, is probably the longest lasting finish on the palate of any beers I have had so far. Would enjoy this style more if finish wasn’t as tongue numbing.
