3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This beer has been reviewed by many others so I'm not going to break it down in typical fashion - this has already been done ad-nauseum. I would just like to say thay I do not feel it has been represented here entirely fairly. While I would admit that it should rate only fair AS AN IMPERIAL IPA, I do find it to be a very drinkable beer and I would certainly encourage anyone to sample it for yourself. I say this as a tried and true Imperial IPA fan (my favorite style). Perhaps one should take it in the spirit of Florida as a hot weather brew which perhaps should sacrifice a little purity of 'type' for drinkability. As a final note, I've drank this from tap in Florida and remember it as being better than the bottled version.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. bottle from SoHo Organic Market, Elizabeth City, NC. Hazy dark orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of tangerine, pine, and mango. Taste offers tropical fruit, caramel, pineapple, and tangerine. The malt-to-hop ratio favors the malts a bit too much for my liking. Also, not sure if they chose hops that I do not care for but something else seems "off" with the flavor. Alcohol is a bit too present. Probably not as bad as I was expecting but still one of the last beers I would reach for in terms of a DIPA.

12 ounce bottle from Secret Santa, opened 7/31/14. Pours a hazy orange color with a thin creamy off-white head. Decent head retention. Looks a little viscous. Aroma of pale malt, clay, mild citrus hops. The taste is tropical fruits, citrus, pale malt. Medium bodied. I won’t say off balance just… oddly balanced. Strange beer.

This was a pretty poor double ipa. Tons of alcohol present more than anything else. The aftertaste is really quite poor and it’s too sweet.

I prefer to drink DIPAs and ran across this beer
In Florida. It was a pleasant surprise and would
drink more. This is not the end-all DIPA, but
Is a nice addition to my list of options. A sweet
finish which veers away from the slightly bitter
ending I prefer like I find in Victory DIrt Wolf.
