3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma us a melange of sweet caramel malt and floral hops, a soft blush wine odor is there. Appearance is amber-gold with thin legs and soft puffy head. Taste is doughy, bready, hints of toasted toffee/caramel with floral and earthy hop resin/spice. There is alot going on. The palate keeps a bit of lupulin and spice on the middle of the tongue after the sip. Overall its really a nice complex beer with great aroma and big rich drinking brew but balanced

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Complex, comprehensive hop aroma from this hazy amber-orange ale - citrus, melon, floral - along with a sweet malty aroma. Balanced, satisfying, heavier mouthfeel - hop-malt synchrony - reminds me of DFH90, Widmer Nelson IIPA, Lenny's RIPA...

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours clear pale yellow with a big white head. Nose is grapefruit, pine and skunky resin. Taste is bittersweet which later succumbs to ultra bitter. Mouthfeel is sticky, yet crisp. Body is heavy and the finish is long.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours crystal clear copper color, minimal head. Aroma is dominated by hops with the malt making a minor appearance. Lots of citrus, floral, and piney/resiny notes. Taste is dominated by hop flavor and bitterness with minimal malt character. Medium bodied beer with average carbonation finishes very bitter. As it warms the malt character is becoming more pronounced. Great IPA. Recommended.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours an amber/orange with with a dense smallish off-white head. Huge hops(like all of them) coming through at first, but it has a malty/yeasty aroma that doesn’t quite fit, and that carries through in the flavor and it doesn’t quite work for my palate. Still a very good beer, just not my favorite. Maybe I got a bad batch cuz I’ve had "Idiot" before and thought it was outstanding.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Not a bad beer. Kinda middle of the road. Pours golden amber and a little hazy with good head retention. Lacing all the way to the bottom of the glass. Good hop character, citrus, piney and a touch of tropical fruit. Mild malt balance. Good carbonation and not overly bitter considering. Bright mouth feel. Solid beer

Solid Double IPA - slightly hazy amber pour with nice white head. White lacing. Nice citrus nose and a nice hop presence (citrus, a touch of pine, a little floral). Strong bitterness on the finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at House of Brews - pours hazy orange with white head, not a lot of retention. Pine and citrus notes in the aroma. Grapefruit, pine, and resin with some orange. Finishes dry, which I love in a ipa. Overall I really enjoy this beer.
