3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very well balanced DIPA; great malt balance for a DIPA. That said, I actually like my IPAs balanced and DIPAs overly hoppy. Because of this personal preference, this isn't in my first tier of DIPAs.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Hazy copper with a huge yellowish head. Orange and caramel nose. Starts out moderately sweet, but follows a more complex route with some sourness, smoke and citrussy hop bitterness. Mellow citrus. Original.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle thanks to Lukaduke! Pours dark clear ruby red with big 3 finger head. Nose is sweet malty fruit, medicinal cherry, hints of piney lemon. Taste is heavy malt, sweet robitussin cherry, cranberry, touches of pine and citrus. Finish is bitter and sweet fruity malt. Well made but just not a big fan of this style ipa.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours cloudy orange copper with a small white head. Aroma is mild but nice for a dipa, apricots pine apple and some grape and caramel. Taste is dry of grape & pine with refreshing carbonation. Dry aftertaste, distinct grape and orange bitterness. Well balanced but lacks some dipa sweetness

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy orange, small pale head. Grapefruit aroma. Distinctly bitter but pretty well balanced, and once again a lot of blood grapefruit. Quite dry, medium carbonation. Bit dry, but still a very good DIPA.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours amber with an off white head.There is a lot of hop aroma in this beer and you get a pleasent floral aroma, drinking it is a balanced beer. The hops are backed up by malty flavors, and at 8.5 % ABV.
Flavor has loads of hop bitterness, some caramel.
Loads of hops and a very good double IPA.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle poured into my ipa glass. Pours a hazy dark orange color with a thick fluffy off white head that stays the whole time. Leaves great lacing as well. Smells of pine, apricot, peach, citrus and caramel. Tastes of the same things that are in the smell with a slight hop bite in the back end. Mouthfeel is slick and creamy with good carbonation and a dry finish. One of the more unique tasting ipas around. Very smooth, you can’t taste the higher abv like you can in some double ipas. Another masterpiece in the smokestack series.
