Pours very clear light orange color with big bubble 1" head. Head holds on really well with nice lacing. Smells very hoppy with nice floral aroma, and also pick up some nice citrus. Taste is citrus and hop with great heat form the alcohol. Also taste honey which I think gives is a smoother finish than some other dbl IPAs. Mouthfeel is complex with big bitter form the hop and citrus to sweetness form the honey. Beer is silky and well carbonated.
Overall, I just love this beer. The only knock for me is the price limits me to only a couple six packs a year. But on the other hand it is a treat to have and maybe I enjoy each one that much more, because I'm not buying a case. This is a beer I don't save, the fresher the better.

Aroma: pine, caramel, grain malts, citrus fruits, grapefruit. Appearance: slightly hazy gold, creamy, small, white head. Taste: medium bitter. Palate: bitters continue, then some malty, caramel sweets appearing in the background, very hoppy indeed. Overall: decent IIPA, but didn’t quite live up to the hype, maybe it wasn’t kept too well. Pint at The Pony Bar, Manhattan.

Bottle shared by Wickedestman, many thanks! Pours copper with a thin, clingy head. Aroma is citrus fruits, upfront pine, stone and just a hint of something mildly earthy. Taste is similar with some honey, dough and some sweet malt in the background. Solid but nothing really special.

Really impressed with this one. Seems like its the one I used to compare everything against at the moment. Plenty of sweet notes to this beer, I get honey and caramel with the citrus. Nice bitter and well blended malt choices keep this one high on my personal list. Nice amber color, head hangs out for while after poor. Let this one warm a few and you’ll really appreciate the aromatic side of it as well. Well done Bells!

UPDATED: APR 13, 2016 Alaranjada de média turbidez, espuma uniforme de aspecto cremoso, boa formação e persistência. Aroma misto de cítrico com resinal, caramelado, álcool perceptível, abacaxi maduro. Paladar de dulçor médio/intenso, médio amargor, mel se torna perceptível com aumento da temperatura . Corpo licoroso, baixa carbonataçao. Final trás ainda mais do mel, lúpulo resinal, fruta amarela madura, persistente. Ótima cerveja, talvez a doubleipa com melhor drinkability que já bebi, sem exageros e álcool bem distribuído.

Sehr fein hopfig mit einer bodenständigen Stärke und feiner Süffigkeit nebst ausgewogener Bitterkeit. Angenehm in Malz und Frucht, dazu leicht erdig, nussig und mit etwas Zitrus. Nicht schlecht.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can to pint glass. Aromas of overt caramel, moderate perfume and slight honey. Cinnabun stickiness aspects to it. Crystal clear, deep gold with moderate pristine white head that stays mostly as a large ring around the glass. Taste originally is mostly malt and a little cloying. Overt pine as it warmed. Aroma gets a little catty also as it warmed. This really opened up as it warmed to room temperature. High bitterness and moderate alcohol heat. Finishes dry, which was surprising with the malty aspects.

Can @ The Porch Key West. Pours clear dark copper with thin white head. Aroma is big sweet sticky caramel malt, oaky and dry on the finish. Taste is similar - oaky, sweet, toasty caramel malt; dry with big piney and aromatic hops on the finish. I didn’t get much honey. Sweet and sticky throughout, tons of rich flavor.
