3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Eric and served in my GI IPA Tulip: Pours a clean deep golden/amber hue with an good head and some lace. The aroma smacks your alpha up with raw, rough and aggressive bittering hops and provides light tropical and apricot jammy fruit notes. Moderately dank, resiny and must I saw SWAMPY :-). Very light vapours of cotton candy, crystal and 6-row malts. Some pepper and clove esters too. The taste is almost as sharp and aggressive as the nose, very biting bitterness with dank earthy notes and plenty of hop spice undertones. A tad unbalanced and after half the bottle got to be a tad boring. No real malt character, just a lot of unfermented sugars. The mouth feel is pretty heavy for the genre, and as mentioned above quite aggressive with a heavy metallic and minerally finish. Must saw I have no desire to ever visit this one again but it was cool to try it once.<more akin to a sub-average American Barleywine than a DIPA>

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.

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.
