Bottle to pint glass. No detailed notes - entering from earlier tasting. Strong caramel and malt characteristic and a well hidden ABV.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Drank from the bottle 81 days after bottled, weak floral aroma, taste is nothing special. Really just your average IPA, nothing special at all. Reminded me a lot of Racer 5 IPA, not bad, but nothing to get too excited about. The high alcohol content is masked well in the taste though. Probably would not buy again, but overall a good beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance is a hazy, orangey amber, a one finger light beige creamy head. Aroma- quite a lot of caramel, malty sweetness, malt bread, hops, fruit juice, hint of lemon. Much more malt-forward than other IIPAs. Taste- bitter, juicy hops, solid malt backbone- bread, hint of toffee and even sugary raisin, alcohol definitely detectable in this one. Sticky mouthfeel- sugary hop resins, and a very long, bitter, resiny finish. Very interesting IPA.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Growler from Joe Canal’s in Lawrenceville, New Jersey. Pours a honey gold color with a large bubbly beige head. Piney grapefruit hop nose. Upfront, flavor is huge of citrus, with hints of tangerine, lemon and grapefruit. Futher sips yield a caramel malt backbone with notes of pine and more citrus. For a Double IPA at 10% ABV, this drinks very smooth and easy. Midtaste brings earthy malt with resiny hops. Spicy bitter hop finish. Big and flavorful, a nice IIPA and a must try.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
"Accidental" target at Standard Market. Warm alcohol smell brings good tidings of much hops. Alcohol comes in cost, a bit hot, and it makes the hops taste like they might be aging out like a cellared 90-Minute. while still a great strong IPA, in this case the taste can’t match up to the expectation of the nose.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma has sweetness, vanilla and grapefruit. Pours almost clear amber with a dense creamy head that leaves beautiful lacing. Quite a lot of yeasty bits floating around. Taste has medium sweetness and medium bitterness. A lot of resin and grapefruit with a nice, full malty backbone. Average carbonation. Some warmth from alcohol in the aftertaste. Almost perfect DIPA!

Jotain salmiakkia ja aika paljon makua. Kyllä se jenkeissä taitaa IPA parasta vaan olla.
