4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz. bottle. Pours a clear golden with slight carbonation and about a finger of creamy, white head. Aroma is very sweet and citrusy with a masked hoppy scent. Flavor has a slight hoppy/floral bite up front with a smooth citrusy undertone mainly grapefruit. The finish is very malty with a delicious honey note. An incredibley delicious beer, but definitely overhyped.

A very nice Double IPA. Taste was very dry and boozy, not really enough malt sweetness to back up the hops. Aroma was very citrusy and piney, definitely smelled like a hop bomb. Not sure this one lives up to the hype.

Not nearly as hoppy as I expected, but good flavor and very drinkable for a high ABV beer.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: bright orange pour with two fingers of off-white head and good swathes of lace. Aroma: explosion of floral and citrus hops, with grapefruit being most prominent, along with a hint of honey and spice. Taste: fruity and surprisingly sweet, with a burst of citrus and floral hops and a restrained wheat toast malt backbone. Finish: nicely dry but not overly bitter, with lingering grapefruit and flowery flavors. Notes: Wow. I hate IPAs in general, but was coaxed to try this and Iím so glad I did. Expected the hops to kill my palate, but these hops werenít there just for the sake of being bitter. In fact, the bitterness was really restrained, in favor of the aroma and flavors these hops brought to the beer. This brew was actually on the sweeter side, and the honey kept the palate dry and relatively light. Also, youíd never in a million years know this was 10% abv. What a beer.

After not having it for the past four years I was a little hesitant to dish out $20 for a six, but was pleasantly surprised. The aroma was awesome, floral with the sweet smell of honey and hops. The taste masked did a great job of masking the alcohol content.
I was never a big IPA fan but this beer completely changed that. Went out and bought another two six packs. This might be the best beer I've had out of a bottle

Have had both 2012 and 2013 on draft. Beautiful golden color, very hoppy aroma and flavor (and I am not a great hops fan). Worth seeking out each year.

Pours light amber with slight haze. Light cream colored head. Hop aromas with grapefruit and other citrus fruits. Fruity floral hop taste. Light malt backbone with sweet honey finish. Finishes amazing clean for a double.
