Golden pour with a white two finger head lots of lace. Mild hops for a double. Very drinkable and definitely do not taste the 9% alcohol. Good for a hot day to quench your ipa pallet.

Citrusy aroma, flavor much of the same. Not very well balanced as the alcohol really came through.

A pretty good beer. A translucent copper/brown color with minimal head. The aroma is slightly hoppy, slightly fruity with a whiff of alcohol. Up front hoppy taste.

on tap. Dark yellow in color with off-white head. Mostly citrusy hoppy aroma. Medium bodied with creamy texture. Moderately bitter with grassy and floral hoppy flavor notes. Not as intense as I expected.

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.

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.

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.
