Pours a clear amber with a small white head. Aromas of bitter citrus rind, alcohol. Taste is similar - cloying sweetness with a bitter alcoholic finish. Meh. Not very good.

12 oz. bottle thanks to my friend Ben for bringing this back from his business trip. Used an English pint glass. Color is clear yellow with thick lasting head from ample carbonation. Nice nose of a blend of hops with sweet malt. Taste is just ok. Big malt backbone with citrus and pine hops in the finish. Some citrus hops in the short abrupt finish. I pick up some of the ABV. It gets more distracting as it warms. Nothing wrong with this brew, maybe just average.

Decent aroma, and sweet hoppyness. Very drinkable IPA. Not too interesting of a palate

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a light copper color with very little head - very malty nose, lacks the floral and citrus notes usually associated with a DIPA - Very sweet taste as I assume the hops have fallen off quite a bit as it also lacks bitterness - Overall this a good beer but seems more like a barley-wine as opposed t a DIPA

Better than the ratings led me to think it would be, a nice fresh floral and citrus hop nose and flavor. At 10%, the malts are strong and very sweet, sugary grains and caramel, which overall detracts. Kinda reminded me of 120 Minute-Lite.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a golden color with a thick off-white head. Smells of floral and roasted malts. A mix between an IPA and a stout. Has that oily, flat, thick chocolate taste with some citrus hops. Odd combination. Not sure I would drink this again. Not very balanced. Too much roast and not enough bitter.
