4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Four Peaks in Scottsdale on 8/23/2012. 10 oz pour (I hate when they do that). Nice and clear appearance, golden orange color with a small white head. Aroma is resin, piney hops, orange peel delicious. The taste is surprisingly light considering the ABV. Not thick and sweet like I was expecting. It tastes a lot like Hop Knot to be honest. I had them back to back and there wasnít much of a difference to me. Itís like 1.5 Hop Knot instead of double :). But I love hop knot so I loved this.

Tap at Scottsdale Beer Company. Iíve been th Four Peaks dozens of times and have never run across this beer. Pours dark gold and hazy. Nose is a bit lemony, with dank earthy hops. Taste is very resiny with dirt hops. Thick chewy body. Best beer Iíve had from 4p.

On draft. Amber with orange tint. Slight off white head. Big tropical fruit aroma. Tropical fruit, pine, hides the alcohol well. Nice DIPA

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the 8th St. brewery. The aroma is very sweet with fresh-cut orange, a wet garden, heavy caramel and kilned malt, and is capped by a resiny hop flourish. Great clear deep orange color with a brief white head. Delicious sweet orange flavor with a solid malt background joined by a slight wildflower tone and a mild floral hop finish. Medium body. When fresh, this double IPA is a must-have.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Finally get to try this after missing the last several releases. Eagerly consumed the 9.5% elixir on tap at the Wilson St. location. It was poured into a room temperature aroma killing half pint where it exhibited a nice re-assuring looking semi opaque hop hazed body that is has deep gold hues and supporting a white head of foam that leaves behind some sheet lacing. The aroma offers up a modest degree of resiny pine hops and a mild malt sweetened citrus grapefruit like note that seems to be sandwiched between the mild maltiness and pine hops. The taste is thick and robust and inviting sticky resiny pine sap that gets an initial wedge of citrus hops squeezed in there. The robust resiny hops fade into malt sweetened citrus hop flavor and a touch of caramel malts. It is interesting how the thick sticky resiny hops fade linearly into a mild bitterness into the finish. Solid IIPA with sink your teeth into it chewy big body resiny pine hop goodness. The only knock is that bit of caramel malts I was getting that gets in the way of the great hoppiness a bit.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rich beer, more malty than hoppy. Rich gold golor bordering on amber. Certainly not the best double IPA around but very drinkable and a good change up from their regular offerings.
