3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle, thanks to chudwick! Hazy golden orange color. Finger of off-white head. Leaves decent lace. Not much in the nose, kind of a musty metallic. In the flavor, sort of a piney hoppy aroma. Bigger bready malt. Bigger bitter, mildly astringent at first, light to moderate sweet, kind of a more dry taste in the finish, light alcohol warmth in the finish. Bigger body. Lighter carbonation. More dry finish. An OK DIPA, not too bad. Delivers the hop, along with a wallop of biscuity malt. Better than expected, better than rates indicate... Nothing outrightly wrong with it. Piney hop gets better as I go, some grapefruit citrus and bright tropical notes come out. Pretty assertive. Aftertaste is like lighter fluid, but it’s not awful as it sounds.

12oz bottle from my mom’s visit to the Orange state. Nose is citrus. Sip adds a decent malty backbone. Strong citrus. Despite the bad ratings, I like it. A little boozy.

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.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.
