Pours orange with a large amount of frothy white head. Aroma is heavy on the toasted malt and boozy sweet fruits. Medium body with sticky texture. An oily, bitter finish makes for an overall amazing beer. Could be a bit hoppier but i guess it isn’t from America :)

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Une petite bouteille. Une robe orange foncée et sa coiffe très large et pleine de ténacité. Des traces qui restent collées sur la paroi de mon verre. Un nez flamboyant de houblons fruités, d’alcool floral et de malts graisseux. Des saveurs de Mandarine Napoléon. Des agrumes qui macèrent dans une eau-de-vie caramélisée. Une bouche de bonne densité avec un pétillement vif et une texture huileuse. Une finale chaude comme des agrumes qui trempent dans un verre de cognac. Une bière puissante, intense et sans aucun doute brutale pour ma gueule.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, bottled March 2013. Pours a mostly clear amber color with a small frothy head that lingers nicely and leaves nice webbing. Love the appearance. Sweet and musty aroma. Nice mix of hops and malt, I’m guessing some hops may have faded off the last few months but it still smells great. Caramel, toffee, pine, grapefruit, oranges, wet grass, and herbal hops. Taste is very nice too. Moderately sweet malt of caramel, toffee, and bread. The hops are diverse, pine, flowers, citrus, grass. Medium to thick body. Mouthfeel is really nice, oily and a little chewy too. 10% abv is well hidden. Really like this beer. Intense malt and hops are blend together with thick body and mouthfeel. Probably a love it or hate it kinda DIPA.

Tasted from a bottle. It poured a hazy dark amber with a frothy tan head. Aroma of malt, caramel, and hops. A thick/heavy tasting Imperial/Double IPA. Semi-sweet and hoppy.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This poured a hazy copper orange that was murky and deep. Opaque with highlights around the edges and had bubbles coming up from the bottom . A scant head of loose bubbles that fell pretty fast to a film o’er top and a pretty thick ring. I would say this one was pretty and had great legs. Left good lace but it was fleeting. Nose is bright orange and sweet pink grapefruit. really delightful. Pine and herbal hops. A deeply sweet caramel malt base that strikes me as smooth already and with more bread that it boasts. Taste is really well done. Everything in it’s place. A hop forward bitter greets the palate and then the sweet pink grapefruit with a little pith. Just like a real grapefruit. The orange is light over top of that and some catty hops. There is the very lightest pine oil and resin and a nice subtle warming from the alcohol that is leans in to a toasted nutty malt finish that’s not as sweet as the nose.
What a superb and delightful IPA. Nothing loud or rambunctious. Finely crafted and everything deliberately well done to give you the finest possible experience in the drink. The abv is 10 percent but it doesn’t feel like it. Smooth and satisfying. What a treat compared to all the very loud and egregiously bitter ipa’s one is bound to sample. This one had class and was completely captivating. Stately and played down. What character.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours hazy amber with decent offwhite head. Diminishes quickly with spotty lacing. Aromas of grapefruit, pine, grass cuttings and subtle spice. Taste is big hoppy pine with, citrus zest, spice and mild bready sweetness. Finish is dry and slightly astringent. Evil Twin has not dissapointed with this DIPA.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Deep golden almost amber pour with a thick white head. Nice citrusy aroma with lots of caramel and sweet malt. Had a significant Summit character going on. Spicy with a slight garlicky flavor. Lots of caramel, candied hops. Slick and oily mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Nice lingering bitter finish. Couldn’t believe it was so big. Well done for sure.
