3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On Tap at the Brooklyn Brewery. A high alcohol content strong malty flavor. It’s like if you mixed an IPA with their Oktoberfest. Nice fragrant aroma but tastewise the hops didn’t really stand out to me as I had hoped. Medium bodied and easy to drink. It has a caramel sweetness on the palate that also has hints of a sweet fruitiness. A nice interesting experiment from the Brooklyn Brewery that’s definately worth trying.

Pours light orange with a grassy and earthy aroma. Body is more balanced with some lingering notes from the aroma and some light citrus.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A nice gold pour with a thin white head. Aroma is hoppy, bitter, slightly floral. Flavor is robust with a great hop flavor followed by a sweet and malty finish. The alcohol is masked extremely well and this beer is very sessionable.

Not overly deep/flavorful for a double IPA. Mild hops, some citrus/grapefruit, and pine. Very average in my opinion.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Pours golden with a white head. This is an excellent IPA but a dangerous one because it goes down very easy despite the high ABV.
