Some citrus and tangerine on the head of this. OK malt backbone, and balance is decent. Good if nothing super original. Tap at BWI brewpub.

Aromabread, bread, floral, citrus, leaves, raisin,
Appearance orange, hazy, white foam,
Taste light sweetness, medium bitterness,
Palate medium body, sticky, average carbonation,
Overall I like that the alcohol is almost nonexistent in this 9% beer so I would suggest this beer to a friend

Hopped aggressively at several stages in the brewing process, yet well-balanced with a malty sweetness.

Meh. I found this to be on the line between an IPA and an imperial/double IPA. it had *most* of the aroma, body, and taste, but not enough for me to think "damn this is a seriously hoppy beer." If they called it an IPA, i’d have given it higher marks; as an IIPA...well...it’s mediocre.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark brownish orange amber with an average white head that fades fast to a rim. Does not stand out visually. Aroma is pretty great. Sweet, dank resin predominates with some caramel malt and a bit of orange. Quite an active and clean bright mouthfeel and very balanced. Flavors of citrus and caramel; jammy grapefruit bitter sweet pine goodness. Very well-balanced with a solid malt backbone. Really good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from 12 oz bottle a hue of amber and orange, fair head and lacing. Aroma of clove, spruce, grapefruit, wet earthen field grass, milk chocolate, and lightly toasted grains. Flavour of big caramel, sweet, sticky malt, pine resins, soft citrus and spicy hops. Body is medium with a creamy, bubbly carbonation. Decent enough I suppose, recommended.

Growler. Drinks very easily for a Double IPA, with hops that are very prevalent but won’t rock your face off. That said, when I drink a Double IPA, I WANT my face rocked off. This beer is fine, but there are lot better beers of this style out there to be had.

Some east coast brewers can make great IPAs, and this is one of them. In your face bitterness, but buttery smooth on the back end, super thick creamy head, lacing coats the glass. Plenty warm and glowing.

Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a nice creamy head and some excellent lacing. Has an aroma of bitter hops and pine. Tastes slightly sweet, but quite bitter at the same time.
