3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle... Pours mostly clear and dirty orange with a small, creamy, off-white head. The bouquet is loaded with a bounty of tropical fruits and melons. Also, whispers of citrus fruits and afterthought of pine. Full-bodied with a lightly creamy mouthfeel and lazy carbonation. The flavors are bold and bittersweet with a moderate measure of rindy, citrusy, pithy hops. Finishes tongue-numbing and a tad acrid. Bottle courtesy of Bvery!

Pour on tap at Northern Lights Rare Beer Fest, clear yellow-orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of nice pine, orange, grapefruit into a bit of lemon, some caramel, touch of biscuit, some earth. Taste was a mix of biscuit, bread, slight white fruit into a bit of orange, citrus notes, finishing fairly bitter. Pretty nice.

Bottle, from The Hoff43, I think. Slightly hazy reddish in color with a medium white head, excellent lacing. Nose is grapefruit and pine. Taste is mostly bitterness initially with a light citrus hop flavor. Medium to light body, moderate carbonation. overall, the hop flavor seems to be very subdued and light for a double IPA. bitterness dominates, and lasts into the finish. A moderate alcohol warming. just ok.
