3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can from sloth. Pours a decent orange color with a frothy head. Nose of hops, slight fruity notes. Taste is a classic east coast IPA... Hoppy but the malt presence takes away from taste and over all experience of a DIPA. Taste is average. Medium body. Overall nothing to write home about. Thanks to bert for the can!

East Coast Double IPA. Bitter in the taste, slightly hazy amber pour. Bright and hoppy but way, way bitter. That shit doesn’t fly on the left coast.

Tight, white head, small but lasting as well the lace. Murky, gold body. Nose is nice, peaches and pine. Medium bodied, good carbonation, lightly oily. Slightly dank and fruity hop notes, citrus and some crystal malts that are a touch sweet for me. Finish is a bit malty with a tender bite. Cans from Colliers in Cape may.

Dark golden-orange body, medium sized white head, soapy lacing. Tropical and green goodness up front, fading to some standard citrus, and finishing with some biscuity and crackery malts. Medium bodied, moderate to lively carbonation, assertive bitterness, semi-dry with just a bit of malt sweetness here and there.

Draught at Edison Ale House, Newark, NJ; 10oz
Hazy golden color with compact head. The aroma is a bit sweaty and animal. Lean body, nice flavor of pale malts, simple, but it’s a right choice for these beers; the hopping is very powerful, strong bitterness, strong resiny character, moderate animal, lighter fruity.
Tastes like a regular IPA, not a double. Very nice and fresh though.
