UPDATED: MAY 13, 2015 This beer leans heavy on the malt. The flavors remind me more of a barley wine than a DIPA, almost along the lines of Old Guardian. For my taste there’s a glaring imbalance with a lack of hop aroma and flavor, which is most likely hidden under the layers of barley. Enjoyable, but could stand a serious dry hop and an expanded hop flavor.

Orange Gold pour. Aroma of over ripe fruit, banana. .. flavor is harsh, over sweet, too malt heavy. Not good.

On tap at America on Tap. Deep golden color, big rich caramel maltiness with some earthy pine and resin to counter. Not a bad beer, but a bit sweeter than I prefer in a DIPA.

12oz can. Drank directly from the can. Decent IPA that I enjoyed drinking though I can’t seem to recall any of the particulars. Will have to pick up some more of these for further study.

Clear, amber color. Full body, intense flavor, rich and smooth mouthfeel with high alcohol heat, good length. Bitter but not out of balance with sweetness and acidity. Herbal hop flavors predominate, ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

650 ml bottle, paid $8.99 at Tuckaway Tavern and Butcher Shop. Murky Amber color with a crazy amount of carbonation. Aroma has a huge Belgian yeast character with a mld floral hop element.

The flavor starts with the light floral hops and quickly turns into Belgian yeast and malts. The bitterness lingers slightly after the sip for a second. Thicker yeasty body that leans on the fuller side. The overall feel is more like a moderately hopped Belgian Ale rather than a DIPA. I still like it, just not what the label indicates the style of brew it is. Still some nice character.

Can poured a clear amber with a lasting amber head. Aromas of caramel, pink grapefruit, tangerine and earthiness. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Favors of cvaramel, grapefruit and light orange zest with a crisp dry lingering bitter finish.

From the 650 ml. bottle. Slightly cloudy medium amber pour with long lasting off-white head. Aroma of hops, fruitiness, and toasted malts but not really abundant in any regard. Their regular IPA has more hop sensations. No booze for 8% and that’s a good thing. Medium to full body. The taste also has a malt/bitter hop character but again it is not explosive like one might expect from a Double IPA. The beer geek in me says this is a weak Double IPA as far as style goes. But if you ignore that and simple drink it as it is you might like it.

Has a heavy dark fruit aroma. Deep amber brown color. Taste is sweet dark fruit (again). Has a heavy mouth feel to it. Finishes sort of clean. I’m not a fan of this style unfortunately so I’m probably not doing it justice.

My first and only canned beer from the brewers at Blue Hills and it was an enjoyable one. I wondered if the 8.0% ABV would be a problem but that wasn’t the case at all. Like some other raters, I question whether this truly fits in the IPA category but, whatever the case, I’ll buy it again and this time I’ll get a 6-pack of the cans.
