Not my favorite in an awesome family of IPAs and IIPAs from the Bear, but a nice big blast of bittersweet citrus, with some accompanying spice as well. Fairly juicy with a bitter earthy finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared at AA (the bar, not the group). Big orange character with a juicy mouthfeel, fresh pine with a minty edge, notes of biscuit and marmalade, dry hoppy finish. Cascade really shines nicely in this dangerously drinkable iipa.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared at AA. Thanks Davido! Hazy orange golden color with a big soapy off-white head. Big hop aromas with orange, pine, biscuity malts and pine standing out. Medium body but hides the abv very well. Sweetness on the palate with good pithy, citrusy bitterness. Long, bitter finish that lingers. Very nice.

In the glass it has a honey amber color with a nice head. Lots of fruit on the nose with flowers and herbs. Taste has tropical fruits and citrus followed by a big wave of bitterness. Long finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Backlog. 22 oz bottle from Bullfrog Wine & Spirits. Hazy orange appearance with a sticky off-white head. Aroma of musty yeast, hop resin, citrus fruits, pine, light peppery spice, caramel malt and light toffee. Similar flavor, tastes a little old honestly. Medium to full body with a goopy, light syrupy mouth feel. Meh, just OK for the style. Kind of hard to drink after a bit.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tallahassee, Fl - Market Square Liquors - 22 oz bomber. Hazy dark orange pour, sticky snow white head that leave plenty of sticky lacing, Aroma has some orange marmalade fruitiness, a touch of booze, some raw cake mix. Flavor is a little bit too heavy in the malt side of the spectrum, some raw cake mix, a touch of citrus bitterness, just a little bit too much, too sweet when it comes down to it, Thick, sticky mouthfeel however. These Double IPAs are starting to wear on me.

Bottle at our monthly bottle share. As expected, this had aromas and flavors of hops. citrus and grassy hops were not too bad. Somewhat over bitter on the finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Above average DIPA. Aroma of darkness with spicy hops. Light golden copper color that was slightly cloudy. Flavor was bitter up front that evened out halfway through. Supporting malt background controlled the bitterness.
