3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tallahassee, Fl - Market Square Liquors - 750 ml capped bottle. Pours a dark murky orange with a puffy, sticky white head that leaves plenty of lacing. Aroma is fresh and resiny with some piney accents, and a brief wisp of bourbon. Flavor is bold with some pronounced honey sweetness, some bitter citrus notes, hints of doughy, yeasty, goodness. 10% ABV is hidden well. Thickish, rich mouthfeel. Very good,but a bit overpriced at $13.99.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
In short: A boozy, citric and sugary blond IPA. Ok.
How: Bottle 750ml. Consumed relatively fresh approximately 3 months after the beer release
The look: Almost clear dark blonde body topped by a medium white head with medium retention
In long: Unexciting nose of higher alcohols, citric hops and phenolic notes. Taste has a little too much booze upfront, dank and citric hops, grapefruity notes, too much white sugar, wooden biiterness, some bitter grapefruits. Supposed to be all Centenial hops but except for the high alpha-acids I just didnít my usual centennial hops signature at all. Body is a bit thin for a 10% brew and also the mouthfeel is not particularly lively and the texture is quite oily. This is a good beer but Iíll take a Dogfish 90 Minutes any day over this Hellhound (same style, similar abv). Anyway Iím not sure why so many people gave this beer a good rating, but just so you know, I always check the list of people who gave a good rating on a beer I didnít score well and then I picture you with a mullet. All of you.

The IPA pours cloudy amber with a nice white bubbly head. The aroma is lemon hoppines and some flight boozy notes. The flavor is dominant lemony citrus hops, obvi, that are on a clean body.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle from Winooski.
Appearance : Clear amber with medium foamy head.
Aroma : Very nice malt with light fruity notes. Nice mangos and light spices.
Taste : Mostly alcohol with spices. Finish is quite warm. Not as fruity as the nose. Nice malt still.
Overall : Nose is rather nice with chewy malts and aromatics hops but taste is a bit disappointing. Too much spices for me which with alcohol get a bit overwhelming.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a beautiful hazy orange/bronze color with a nice frothy rocky off white head sitting on top that creeps down the side of the glass as it goes down.
Aroma is citrus and pine hops. Lemons. Smells quite boozy.
Sipping this beer down, The first thing I notice is itís sweetness. Sweet citrusy hops. with quite a bit of piney notes following through for bitterness. Itís backed up with some pale or caramel malt. Has a light lemony citrus bitterness towards the end. Not much of a bite as much as it is just a lingering bitterness that is balanced by the sweet malt.. And I will say there isnít much masking the alcohol here.
Oily sticky texture and medium bodied. Itís a smooth sipper with quite a bit of alcohol warming up the feeling as you drink. had it on draft before and thought it was unimpressive. More less a lemon-y IPA. Better in the bottle even if the alcohol takes over a bit much of the taste

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Large white head with good retention and a nice, sticky lacing. Hazy, copper orange colored brew. Nose is lemony with notes of bandaid. Medium body, an almost spritzy carbonation, light oilyness and astringency. Overly sweet malts for a DIPA that are backed by off putting phenolic notes, band aid being the main distraction. The lemon does,nt interact well with it either. Finish is a bit sweet with no real hop bite to speak of. Bummer. 750 from statelineliquors
