2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled (?): 09AUG12 – dunno if the date is botled on or best by….
Pours cloudy amber with a solid sheet of light apricot foam. Gobs of lace. Smells of tangerines, orange, grapefruit, biscuit malts, some bits of crystal malts. Flavor is sweet with a rounded bitterness and flavors of sweet toast and good amounts of fruity hops. Overall a little more malty than I’d prefer. A little full bodied if you ask me, subdued carb and a semi dry finish. Drinkable, wouldn’t seet out, for me it’s a little too hi ABV to want to sacrifice my face to it.

On tap at the auburn ale house. Medium copper color. Aroma is primarily sweet caramel malt and some piney hops. Flavor is very similar with a sweet start that moves into a long bitter finish. Nicely balanced for an Imperial IPA

Wow! Perfect balance between its subtle citrus notes of grapefruit beside its caramel malt body, all followed with a huge blast of hops. There’s a creamy mouthfeel and utter smoothness. This is a huge surprise. Finishes beautifully with a beautiful combination of the 3 IPA core profiles.

Draft at the brewery. I’d definitely say this is my favorite Auburn brew I’ve had yet. Bit malted citrus aroma, piney. Flavor boasts loudness right off the bat, full of both hop and malt, blending the flavors pretty perfectly! It’s definitely something to chew on, but drinkable as is. Great brew!

Very nice offering from Auburn Alehouse. This double IPA is very drinkable, not near as bitter on the palate as one would think from the aroma, Very well balanced nice malt flavor to balance the hops, nice citrus flavor. Great beer should try it.

One of the better auburn alehouse beers for sure. Bought a bottle at local grocery store. A more subdued hop flavor ipa as far as other imperial or doubles I have had, not a bad thing, though. I think it works well.

Off the tap with a half finger of head on a medium straw colored body.
The aroma of lemon, grapefruit and mandarin. Wonderful.
The taste had a bold grapefruit bitterness with a mellow malt background.
The texture was crisp with moderate carbonation.
A wonderful DIPA that you cannot go wrong with.
