3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Via trade with Acole34. The aroma is caramel, honey, earth, cooked vegetables. The appearance is hazy orange, white head. The flavor is malt forward, caramel, followed up by resiny and metallic hops. The body is medium to medium/thick. The finish is a sharp hop bittering, pine, resin, metal. A little strange, but good, solid IIPA. Thanks, Angus.

On tap at BWI airport waiting for my flight! Pours a hazy orange with a thin white head, the aroma is of slight floral with some citrus hops mixed in, the flavor is pretty balanced with malt and hops, probably one of the better choices if stranded in BWI!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle served in a tulip. Pour is cider with one finger bubbly off-white head. Nose is big malt and hops with hints of caramel and honey. Taste is all malt and hop with a caramel and bitter hop finish. This is a tasty DIPA from DuClaw that is polished on every side, yet shining none ... a brew that is good, but not great!

Flavor is light to medium sweet and medium bitter. Tastes of hops, malt, light pine, light caramel, and some citrus. Medium body. Slightly oily, then slightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Medium sweet, lightly bitter, hops, malt, and caramel finish. Not very bitter for a double IPA. Too sweet, really. 9%ABV is completely hidden throughout.
