2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz draft at the Church. Pours clean amber with very thin white head that quickly recedes. Aroma of light citrusy hops and malt. Big malt flavor for an IPA, slightly smokey caramel malts, fairly bitter, balanced by citrusy hops with a slightly soapy aftertaste.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Had this on tap at the Jerome Bettis Grille on 3/14/12. It pours a deep copper with a medium white head. It has a heavy hops aroma with a hint of some sweet/fruity malt. A light to medium bitter taste. The body was light to medium with a rich, creamy texture and a light bitter finish. This was a very tasty IPA, but oddly enough I would expect more of a bitter taste. Usually I am overwhelmed by the bitterness of IPAs. I will, nevertheless, be having another the next time I am in the Pittsburgh.

Compliments of Uncle Tom! Thanks for the Beer! Pours a dark orange. Head, or what there was dissipated to a lacing on the edge. Aroma is of a floral hop. The bittering is evident from the start. The hop flavor is rather nice. Mouth feel is nice. Bittering on the back side is nice without leaving a bad taste in your mouth.

bottle. amber pour, heavy malt presence in both the aroma & flavor. bitterness was pretty subdued, i thought hop presence was pretty weak when i initially thought it was an IPA, as an IIPA it is even weaker. not too impressed

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark, amber, toffee color with nutty malt tones and little hops in nose and mouth. Drank out of bottle and there wasn’t to much to this beer. This beer was sweet and toasty nut aftertaste. Not a favorite.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours hazy orange red with white head, aroma has notes of pine, grass, slightly muted citrus and some caramel. Taste is fairly simple, fairly hoppy with pine and grass, some slight citrus, with a nice biscuit and caramel middle, fairly bitter finish. Much more like a single IPA, but pretty good.

Seems pretty subdued for a double IPA. Has some citrus on the nose but nothing too pronounced.
