3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
One of my favorite double IPAs. Nicely balanced, aggressive ABV and hops without being over powering or compromising the citrus notes!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
FROM NOTES: July 19, ’12
Poured on draft into a pint glass at The Bulldog, Jackson, MS.
A: Piney, floral hops with a hint of sweetness from a honey type notes. Mostly floral/citrus type notes that are expected in an IPA.
A: Pours a deep gold with a large dense white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.
T: Malty and a bit sweet. Strong caramel notes, some toffee, hints of honey-like sweetness. Hops are definitely there for bittering, but seem to just balance the malts. Citrus rind and maybe some pine. I was expecting a bit more complexity, it just seems like the hops don’t live up to the aroma.
P: Medium bodied with medium carbonation.
O: NO WAY this is a DIPA. Very drinkable and enjoyable, but NOT a DIPA.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear copperish gold with a persistent foamy white head. Nose is dank and earthy hoppy with a funky bitter pine/floral/grapefruit resin nose, also with a citrusy caramelly backbone. The flavor is full and wonderful with lots of unbitter grapefruit sweetness, some caramel, and resiny bitterness with some floral undertones. Ends a bit leafy and floral with a lovely resin aftertaste.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - thanks Mora2000 for state #49! Pours hazy amber with a small off-white head that dissipates quickly with good lacing. Aroma is caramel, pine. Flavor is the same, medium sweet and lightly bitter; piney hops and caramel malts dominate. Bitterness increases to the finish and becomes slightly metallic. Medium body, oily mouthfeel. Actually not bad, likely a bit old. Bottle was notched "07" but I am not sure which year, or if that was a bottled on or a best buy date.
