First good beer after a nice break from alcohol. Solid double IPA not the best taste but very solid. Big fan of Heavy Seas Loose Cannons this was not disappointing but not exactly what I expected either.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear gold with a thick pale buff head that leaves generous lacing. Aroma is invitingly hoppy, if not strong. Flavor is bolder than the milquetoast of an aroma, hoppy and citrusy, just a tad bitter. Smooth texture is somewhat firm but very lively.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at their brewpub in Afton, VA. Served in a snifter glass, clear orangy-amber color with off-white head. Aroma of very fruity tropical hops, some pine and citrus balanced nicely with caramel malt sweetness. Taste adds some notes of funky/grassy hops, bready malt and some herbal notes. Heavy-medium body, low carbonation, complex, sweet with lingering fruity/pine finish. Very good warming DIPA, drinks very easy to explore the hop complexities happening.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Growler from the brewery The D/IPA poured a clear golden color with a frothy white head and some lacing. The nose detects citrus, orange peel, and spruce. A complex blend of hops, with the taste of various fruits. The ale had medium body with average carbonation. This is excellent D/IPA. There is a complex mixture of hops with a nice warm felling from the higher ABV. The finish left a dry bitterness in the upper mouth.
