3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. Pours a murky medium amber with a thick foamy white head. Lots of sticky lacing. Aroma of citrus, pine, bread malts, and caramel malts. Taste is tons of citrus rinds, sweet caramel malts, a hint of bread malts, and pine. Nicely balanced. Not too bitter not too sweet. An enjoyable IPA. Dry bitter finish.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a murky amber with sediment, big head, and good lacing. Aroma is really fruity, with pineapple and apricot, backed by some floral hops and a little caramel. Taste comes on quickly with very strong resiny bitterness. Some caramel malt tries to balance, but itís quickly crowded out again by the long lasting bitter finish. Alcohol is slightly warming but otherwise hidden. Palate is medium bodied, a little astringent with all the resin.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Has a transatlantic voyage and 4 months to it I guess (best before 080913)?
Pours dark amber with a big, thick light beige head. Some sediment.
Aroma is quite faint but has mostly peach and citrus, some caramel malt.
Taste has caramel malt, grapefruit, tropical fruit and a big, almost tongue numbing piny/resinous bitterness.
Mouthfeel is smooth yet dry. Medium body, medium carbonation. Aftertaste is very long and bitter.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Solid full bodied DIPA. Strong pine notes on a full yet not sweet malt base. Strongly bitter but never overpowering. Good!

Very good, A big IPA, smallish double IPA that has great depth of flavor with the malt coming through to balance the citrusy hops. A beer that stood out when tasting several.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
An excellent, balanced IPA. I remember the finish as being complex, fresh, full of lighter fruitiness. Not necessarily bitter. Pours a light amber color. The malt backbone is a bit thin but there.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a 120z bottle to tulip. Bust out the hops my brethren. I am raving about this one. There is a lot to love here! The aroma starts with a delightful burst of fresh hops. Mango, pineapple, some earthy peat and so much more. The apricot and lemony citrus mentioned in the commercial description are there in full. The bottle I have says itís 8.8% ABV. In the glass this is lovely. A hazy sunset over the Grand Canyon reddish gold. A long lasting and robust head of eggshell yellow. In the mouth the hops envelope the palate, yet this is not a palate wrecker. Juicy from the jump the pucker literally made me shiver! WOW! The citrus and tropical fruits are amazing. The malts are faint, and this is very hop forward but it holds together in harmony. There is a just right sweetness to go with a woodsy, smoky like a nice scotch undercurrent. This DIPA drinks so smooth itís scary. The mouth continues to water well into the aftertaste. My only real criticism is that it is a tad bit thin not as full and robust a mouthfeel as I would expect in this style. If all you care about is high IBUs and palate numbing bitterness this isnít that. If you want juicy juicy hops showcased to perfection with complex and senses filling flavor, welcome youíve found your beer! LOVE IT!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy dark orange/brown. White head and tons of lacing. Aroma was alittle surprising...light fruits like strawberries, oranges, and peaches. Taste is solid with grapefruit, pine, licorice (unless my taste buds are failing me), and malts. Not an elite 2IPA, but close.
