Pours a cream colored head. Nice and Lacey. Floral nose with hints of citrus. Nice mouth feel. Over all a very nice double ipa.

650 ml bottle. Pours a dark copper amber colour with a small foamy head. Aroma of heavy piney hops, citrus, sweetness and biscuit. Heavy flavour of huge piney bitterness, caramel sweetness, menthol, grapefruit and deep jammy fruitiness. Full bodied. Extreme. Despite being heavy the drinkability remains good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled 08/28/15 - Pours copper orange with a smooth white head. Aroma of caramely malts, toffee, loads of grass, pine, resin and herbal notes. Taste is malty, sweet, heavy and caramely with loads of toffee, grassy hops, herbal notes, pine and resin. Finish is sweetish, slightly stuffy, malty and hoppy with massive amounts of pine, resin and herbal grassy notes. Quite malty and sweet, old school west coast DIPA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I’ll start off saying this isn’t super fresh, so take this with a grain of salt. Nose of sweet, slightly burnt caramel malts, some citrus, pine, and danker hops. Taste follows, with bitter, slightly soapy hop finish. More barley wine at this point than DIPA. Booze is well hidden.

My Bottom Line:
Burnt honey and bitter resins fight it out alongside citrus fruit in this rich and sweetish Double IPA.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the misty pale amber.
-This is not an easy drinker, even for the style. At least, the name makes you expect what you get.
-The wealthy mouthfeel is comfortable.
-This feels like an old-style DIPA; more sugary and with a coarser bitterness.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
650ml to cervoise glass. Pours deep orange-red. Plentiful head which dwindles down to a lasting ring of light tan head quickly. Malty with notes of caramel and pale malts. Hops are spicy, floral and lemon/orange zest. Some good peach and mango as well on the finish. You can tell immediately that it is 10.0 abv. Strong beer...good beer...highly drinkable...but look out...it kicks.
