Clear dark gold. Bold grapefruit and pine aroma. Aggressive hop bitterness, but not overwhelming. Subtle malt flavor with lemony citrus notes. Very good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bottle poured into shaker. Slightly hazed golden body with a thin sticky white head. Aroma is citrusy, dank hops and caramel malts. Taste has more pine than the nose but is still citrusy in its strong hop bitterness. A touch of sweetness is all that comes through. I’m getting a little band-aid phenol, too. Medium body, creamy texture, moderate carbonation, and a dry, bitter finish.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours orange-amber with a thick off white head. Aroma is sweet pineapple & tropical fruits - fruit punch. Taste is sweet tropical fruits up front followed by really nice bitterness for a long finish - there’s a faint hint of honeydew in the finish too. For a DIPA, this one seems really well balanced. Alcohol not present at all. Good job!

Golden in color with fruit, citrus & pine in the nose. Sweet beginning with a bitter wash coming in the middle and lingers for days. Overall a good DIPA

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle in a teku. Pours copper with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of citrusy and floral hops, pale and caramel malts, and some dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not the best double IPA but not bad.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour out of 22 oz bottle, picked up at Supermarket Liquor. Clear orange pour with white, lacing head. Aroma brings big dank notes with pine, weed, grass into some nice grapefruit juice, orange, some hints of biscuity, bread notes. Taste is a mix of herbal, grassy, dank notes into some orange, grapefruit, earthy notes, nice biscuit, caramel, finishing with more grapefruit, slightly sweet almost but fairly bitter as well. Nicely done, nothing amazing but great level of flavor and balance.

Light gold pour
Nice hoppy aroma of spruce and citrus, and flavor is just as big and hop forward, with citrus notes. Another great IPA from BR

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. California all the way. Pours a shiny golden amber with a bright white head of fizzy foam. The aroma is fully floral, a virtual garden in full bloom. This drink with a full-up creamsicle flourish, piled on with flowering west coast hops, too. Definitely made to appeal to the left coast, a bit out of balance IMHO. But still worthy of some props, a hit with its intended audience for sure. (#5465, 3/16/2014)
