4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a hazy straw with little head. Great aroma: earthy, dank, citrus qualities combine to form a beautiful tropical fruit aroma. Perfectly balanced and you would never guess that this is a 9% beer. Dry, crisp finish with no lingering bitter or cloyingly sweet notes that often accompany double IPAs. This one’s a keeper.

A nice citrus in the nose. A great balance in the taste and just overall a tasty IPA.

Smell is deep and full with signs of citrus. Taste is extremely well rounded while still full of hops. Superb! Hops of all colors. They say big malt balanced and i would agree. With how well it is balanced i would say they could have made the hops more piercing but only a smidgen and this is my only hesitation for saying this is a perfect beer. I look for strong hops but well rounded in an ipa and this is spot on! Bravo

Bottle generously given by beertographer from BA .. sorry ravens destroyed your broncos :)
22oz poured into a tulip glass on super bowl Sunday, Orange haze. Smell of bitter hops and tropical fruit. Taste was very well balanced with a slightly sweetness from a mix of peaches, apricot and mango. Sticky hops that leaves your palate wanting more

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Falling Rock. It pours a slightly hazy light copper-y gold with near white head of foam. The aroma is big with grapefruit, orange juice, orange peel, some grassiness, pine and a bit of cherry hard candy sweetness. Between some of these notes are snippets of resiny hop bitterness. The taste is pretty rich and vibrant with a mix of malt sweetened tangelo and grapefruit citrus hoppiness moving into a mango tropical fruit note approaching midway. It then picks up resiny pine sap like notes amid the citrusy goodness. Darn tasty rich IIPA that doesn’t push the limits of the style (which, to me, pushing the limits defines the style).
