4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Nice fresh hoppy aroma. Good amount of head. Tastes pretty much like any double IPA with nuances of lemon zest. The lemons seemed faint to me but they were there, nonetheless. Slightly sweet and alcohol is well hidden for 10%. Finishes fairly bitter.

Bottle thanks to someone. Nose is super hoppy, lemons, fruity, zest, and smooth. Smooth on the palate, lemons, hops, delicious.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft served in a 10 oz. snifter at Teller’s. Pours a cloudy orange color with a small eggshell white head. Aroma of grassy and floral hops, orange and tangerine citrus, caramel malts, and sweet bread. Flavor of caramel and sweet bready malts, pineapple, orange citrus, grassy hops, pine resin, and a hint of honey. Medium-bodied, with a chewy mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Interesting DIPA- nothing popped quite as much as I wanted it to, but the balance is solid.

750ml bottle from Julio’s Liquors. Pours a hazy burnt orange with a 2 finger thick white head. Aroma is packed with floral hop notes, citrus, lemon zest and golden raisins. Taste is quite citrusy, with lemon & oranges notes, as well as the floral hops that are present in the aroma. Medium bodied and a bit on the dry side. Sharp, bitter finish. I wish I had bought more than one bottle.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle:   Hazy amber, large frothy white head, fairly nice lacing.   Looks tasty!   Straight forward hoppy nose.   Has a very minor lemony aroma as well.   Wow, yeah, that lemon is more pronounced on the tongue than on the nose.   Otherwise hoppy, a bit of alcohol, and strong citrus/lemon peel on the backside.   Not as heavy or smooth as I like my IIPAs, but not bad.   Fairly clean hoppy finish.   There tiz a bit of risidual alcohol tho, but not enough to detract.   Enjoyable, and a little different with that lemon punch right up front.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle. Poured a straw yellow color. Aroma was mostly lemon, with a touch of hops, malty backing. Flavor was, well, lemon, citrus, lemon and lemon. It was actually quite refreshing for being a 10% ABV brew.
