3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a clear orange, very nice lasting head that throws a great lace, I suppose from the wheat content. Aroma is lightly of greenish citric hops, faint caramel malt. Flavor is a match, Malt sweetness, a hint of grain, followed by balancing bitterness. Hop character is remarkably subdued, slightly earthy in nature. Really lovely balance. I wish the hop flavors had been more assertive, but this was a very nicely made beer. Probably better than this score indicates.

Bottle. Attractive pour ... crystal clear, pure amber, with a nice rocky head of gurgling foam. Not much aroma here, and the beer drinks with a suspiciously easy-going style ... exceptionally smooth, smacking with just a friendly little quota of earthy, green hoppiness, and just enough alcohol burn to make you wonder whether this might be high gravity, but not enough to convince you that it is. This is a delicately assembled brew, that’s for sure! (#5041, 5/27/2013)

On tap at Dogfish Head in Gaithersburg. Pours golden with a lasting head. Aroma of citrus and grass. Nice taste of fruit, citrus. Acidity makes it nice palate cleansing. Don’t know if it has the hops for a double IPA, but nice.

750ml bottle shared by Mike Memorial Day Sunday. Poured a nice looking syrupy but mostly flat honey orange body under a large rocky mostly white head. Aroma is sweet, notes of honey and some dough, homey topped bread, flowers, grassy hops. Palate is a little flat with a medium body and a lingering aftertaste. Flavor is the same as the aroma, dry toast, honey, flowers, grassy hops, some orange notes as well. Not bad but nothing that needs to be in a 750ml bottle.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle Sampled at Hoppy Monk February 2013.
Pours lightly hazy orange with a very small fizzy white head. nose is wack-plums, citrus (old), fig, sugary hops lite medicinal character. flavors of sweet fruit, resin, hops, lite honey, fig, vanilla and sweet lite alcohol kick long into the finish. a double ipa you say? hmmm doesnt seem anything like that. maybe the bottle has a bit of age on it. however, the bar claims it came in shortly before purchase. finish has lingering alcohol heat, resinous hops. not a bad beer perse but not great either, especially the high price tag.

Not a ton of hops in the nose. Pours clear and amber with off-white head. Very thin mouth feel. Way too much caramel malt and not enough dry hopping.
