3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
Aroma - strong citrus fruit and floral hop aromas. citrus, and grapefruit aroma with a hint of bready malt.
Appearance - clear and golden in color. frothy white head.
Taste - follows the nose: citrus/floral hop aroma. And just a tiny bit of malty sweetness. just enough malt to keep this beer from being too dry for my tastes.
Palate - medium bodied beer with a moderate level of carbonation that finishes just short of dry.
Overall - an excellent double IPA, not sure that it lives up to the hype but excellent nonetheless. Would definitely recommend anyone interested in hoppy beers check this one out but I still prefer Sculpin to this.

Resinous hops really make this one. Wow at the bite of the dry hop brew. Looks great. Taste is almost a bit too much even for a hop drinker.

The aroma is malt-bread, hops-floral/citrus. Pours a slightly cloudy copper/orange with a medium white head and excellent lacing. The taste is very bitter. The body is medium, the texture creamy, the carbonation lively and the finish a long bitter. Very good.

Bottle shared much thanks to Dan. Pours out a decent amber color with a small white head. Aroma is of grapefruit meat, citrus and some light pine notes. Taste is a nice punch of fruity citrus and pine hops with some light balance in there of some taosty malts, and then more hops with a slightly drying alcohol note on the finish. Tasty

This is a a double India pale ale ale according to the bottle. Being a fans of pale ale ale and esp. India pale ale ale, I can only imagine that a double version would be almost as good but slightly too sweet and no more hoppy. Hey! Well here we are. This is a cloudy orange amber w/ a thin head of fine white bubbles. Itís got a nice hoppy nose. I get floral notes up front in the nose, maybe a touch of citrus well. This is a bit on the sweet side--which is a trait it has in common w/ Two Hearted--and this is exacerbated at itís ten-plus-percent alcohol strength. It is really hard to make a hoppy beer of this gravity and pretty much displays the problems w/ the style to a T. Since Bellís has a beer of this style done well--ever heard of Hopslam?--I just canít see any reason for this to exist.

Light body, heavy hop profile, more bitter than aromatic. A solid beer but could be way better for the price.

A nice dank hoppy start with a nice easy malt backbone. Ends with a strong hoppy bitter punch. Leaves a sweet aftertaste. Pours copper in color with a white head. Had a bottle pour at my house in myrtle beach.
