3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clear deep gold into a snifter. White head recedes to skim surface. Resin aromas. Soft with hot caramel and resin upfront turning to pith in the lasting finish.

Fantastic double, with absolutely smooth and hoppy finish. I urge everyone to compare this beer to war elephant by Rushing duck!!

Agree with many comments but wanted to add that the fnsh bothers me. I love Simcoe hops but there’s a musty quality that lingers on my palate and drops this brew down a few notches. It’s not a hop flavor I can identify; just a musty, lingering flavor that isn’t horrible but not to my liking.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a can. Pours a deep golden amber with a medium sixed head of white foam. Sweet citrus with light pine resin aroma. Light carbonation with plenty of lacing. Medium body. Full mouth feel with lingering citrus and pine flavors and a hint of bitterness. Smooth finish with a warming sensation. Solid.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can@home, from Constantino’s, Cleveland, USA. Medium aroma with pine, citrus and sweeter fruits. Darker golden color with minimal white head and hazy liquid. Strong, balanced and full taste with slightly over aged mango and some citrus. Piney and some grass on the background. A lot of hops. Medium/wide taste spectrum and long aftertaste with hoppy malts and some mango. Medium/strong body with medium carbonation. Overall, huge taste although in a bit simple fashion. Also lacks malty flavors. Still, very high quality, schoolbook like and organic American IIPA.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from the can. Honey amber in the glass with a little chunky haze. Fine bubbled supportive white head. First taste, honey in the front. Sweet and sticky. Nose has some grapefruit in there. Definitely a heavy hitter. Super complex hop board kept in check pleasantly with the malts through the middle. Finish sticks around.

Great citrus flavors and aromas. The flavors left on the palet are welcomed, not too overpowering. Could drink many more of these if they were more readily available.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aromas of grass, caramel, pine needles, citrus, oranges, honey, candied tangerine and mango juice. Pours a semi deep copper with a hue of golden brightness and aggressive white lacing. Taste brings very harsh bitterness upfront with massive dankness, pines, hop oils just relentless bitterness. Plenty of orange juice, mango, peach peel, honey, caramel and more oils. Finishes dry and bitter with definite malt sweetness, malt syrup, wort and booze. Overall, very impressive stuff that attacks your palate with an onslaught of dankness and bitterness. Fruit/citrus presence is subtle in the back.
