3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle; Hoppy but very drinkable - hides its high alcohol % well. Nice balance of hop and malt - not as cloying as other IIPAís tend to be.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Pours hazy and golden amber with a light frothy head. Citrus hints are commanding and ever present. Lively Palate, but the taste is a little common to standard beers than high end IPA. Overall: my opinion, better than average IPA but not to be mentioned with better craft IPAs.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance is cloudy with brown medium head. Looking closely I can see chunks of reside like squeezed lemonade. Taste is bitter strong grapefruit with moderate maltyness. I can taste the high alcohol.

Think it was a 355 mL bottle, but Iíve no idea from where I got it. Smells the part, with lots of resin. Flavour not so much, but itís not bad. I expect more from a double.

Bottle, BBOTM. Hazy amber with white head. Bread pudding, fruit, a little tropical and citrus aroma. Dry-ish bitter, a little sour-fruitiness and bubblegum taste. Medium-bodied, long bitter finish, mildly carbonated.

Pours a deep translucent amber color with a small white head. Strong scent of floral and lemongrass. Flavors of malt, lemongrass, and hops. Strong alcohol taste. Pretty good double IPA.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at home. Hazy amber pour. Aroma is citrus and floral hops, and quite sweet. Full bodied, cloyingly sweet, bracingly bitter. A solid kick of booze on the finish. Average DIPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A - Hazy amber copper with a whipped white head. Excellent retention. Solid hills of lacing on the glass.
S - Lemon zest and pine, doughy caramel, stone fruit, grapefruit comes out as it warms.
T - Pine mixed with lemon. Sweet caramel malt holds up well against the herbal evergreen hops. White peaches. Finishes crisp and bitter. Grapefruit and shows up in the aftertaste.
M - Full and creamy, heavy carbonation.
Full hop flavor as well as good bitterness. Hops dominate the malt. Very tasty. The best so far from the brewery.
Serving type: on-tap

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Total Wine in Jensen Beach. Pours a coppery orange with a white head leaving terrific lacing. Aroma has grapefruit and pine with a strong resinous presence. Very simcoe-hoppy forward. Taste has sweet hops, grapefruit and pine. Some caramel solidly underneath but this one is about the hops. Very bitter and slightly salty through the mouthfeel. Medium to full bodied, and a bit rough and sticky. A nice IIPA from an inconsistent brewer.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear amber with a small head. Aroma floral, grassy, some caramel, some earth. Taste of upfront bitterness. Citrus, some malt, orange, pine. Nice dry bitter finish, feels nicely balanced (a bit to the bitter side, but not bad for a double IPA) I could drink several of these quickly and not feel burdened (Bad idea at 9.2%. :) ) Good beer.
