Really nice offering here...deep dark copper color, could ahve used a nice glass but the flavor, hop balance, body made up for it. Really fine brew.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle bonus thanks to adrian910ss. Clear orange/brown pour, little carbonation and heavy malt and slightly hoppy aroma. Flavor is some creamy malt, a little citrus and some subdued hops and very mild for being 8% ABV. Not a bad beer, I would like to try this fresh on tap.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
The aroma is burnt rye malts, with a bitter, flowery hop. The toasted malts dominate.
Appears clear, glassy ruby red orange. Darkly colored. Thick creamy head.
The flavor is sweet and sugary with a bitter malty bite at the end. Nice combination of flavor. Nice little bite at the end.
The palate is thick and milky. Good for style. A nice, bittersweet English style pale ale.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft - Low lighting, hard to admire color but it looked copper to deep coper with no carbonation and a short lived head. The nose was made of a sweet sugar, flower petal, pollen type scent. Reminiscent of a women’s perfume. On mouth this is a light medium IPA that provides an upfront taste on the tongue with a touch of bitterness towards the middle and finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle via Todd. Beautiful coppery pour, light tan head. Hugely malty nose, big caramel, light spice (and, as is becoming more common for me, getting some faint notes that remind me of cookie dough). Taste is dark, very dry and bitter, light resin, light floral citrus notes in the back. Really strips everything of the tongue, a super-cleaner that would be good with greasy food. Lightish body, big juicy hop taste. Nice!

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle received in trade with cheapdark, Thin tan head thats short lived, little spotty lace. Ugly orange copper color, murky. Nose is mettallic, fruity with apple notes, sorta,,, off. Med/light body, watery. Flavor wise, i dunno, Some citrus notes backed up with tame malts, lightly grainy. Dry finish. Not much happening here. I think Dennis is trying to dump off a sad excuse for an IIPA to prove some kind of point. Hmmmm, guys not right. Thanks anyways bro. Ride it like ya stole it!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Nice floral/hoppy aroma with some notes of caramel malt. Poured a nice deep amber color with a nice white head. Flavors were prominent, good strong malts, caramel and bread, and hops, citrus and floral notes. Pretty good, for a regular IPA, but kick it up a bit more if you want to call it a double.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
This was a litle lighter than i would have expected from a double IPA. Smooth and left without too much of a lingering hoppy taste. The mix of hops was good but again there was no real bite.
