3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle thanks to BlowOffTube! Pours hazy orange with a medium off-white head that dissipates quickly with some lacing. Aroma is a fairly light mix of bread, caramel, pine, citrus. Flavor follows, medium sweet and light bitter, lots of maltiness and piney hops, but not harsh or intimidating. Medium plus body, creamy mouthfeel. Interesting DIPA, in the style of 90 minute with lots of hops and sweetness on the backbone. However there is not enough fragrant juicy hop character to really carry the ball forward for me. Kinda hot as well, not surprising given ABV, but a little more than I wanted.

3.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy reddish brown. Aroma and taste are very boozy. Hops in the finish but overall are kind of lacking for a double IPA.
