4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
A good IPA with a somewhat narrow hop flavor profile. It’s called a double, but the ABV is only 7.7%. The big bitterness is enjoyable, but a bit unbalanced.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a slightly hazy amber from a bottle, thick white head with lots of lacing. Aroma of pine, lemon, but not pine-sol-y. Flavor similar, with some nice sweet caramel malt backbone lingering in the background. Not terribly boozy, current batch is only 7.0% according to the bottle, not the 7.7% listed. Good beer though.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A pine and citrus aroma. Head is crazy so far. Hazy burnt orange body. Bitter with a bold malt to balance it well. Hint of caramel sweetness. Finish was flat though.

Very good for what it is. I am not typically inclined to Ambers but this jas a VERY piney taste to the palate. Is there such a thing as an Imperial Amber? This would fit the bill np, Imp Ipa, just not sure

Light body and flavor, slightly piquant but flat mouthfeel, low acidity and moderate heat, good lengrh.
Dry, slightly bitter.
Weak flavor, hoppy.
Not much to make it worth going back

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle with a bottle date of Dec 2014. Purchased in a four pack. Hazy orange color with some lasting head in the snifter. Aroma is sweet malt with a lasting pine needles and light floral hops.
I was surprised how well this held up. Nice balance of grain and malt backing with the pine and floral hops giving a substantial lasting bitterness after the sip. Massive notes of pine with some citrus rind as it warms up. Very drying texture across the tongue. Make sure this is only slightly chilled, flavor comes alive as it warms. Quite good actually.

Tap. Pours a murky yellow with a firm head and little bits of hop leaves settling at the bottom. The aroma is citrus hops. Great hop flavor with lots of grapefruit. The alcohol is not apparent. Easy to drink and quite tasty.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a larger bottle into a pint glass to drink. The beer had a hazy-cloudy deep amber-straw color with an average-sized foamy white head that had modest retention but fairly good cling and lacing. Its aroma had a strong earthy and grainy hops aroma with good floral, citrus, and pine tones, along with very light hints of sugary malt and straw. The taste was a delicious bitter blend of hops tones featuring floral and citrus flavors and a bit of grain and a spicy finish. The beer had a thick mouthfeel with good life and carbonation and a very dry character with a slight ting of alcohol. A very good beer overall.
