3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very mild for IMP IPA and 10 ABV. Decent smooth maltiness, vanilla aspect, citrus, pineapple, light pine. Bitter all the way with light hint of sweetness.
Lovely but not remarkable

Pint glass from tap. Pine and pineapple aroma. Golden, thin white foam, good lacing. Sour pine, citrus pith, super bitter finish. Drinks like a 7%.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber color with off-white head. Aroma has really resiny and earthy hops with a solid malt backbone. Taste starts malty and bitter at first but in the middle I get a really weird, stale flavor and it lingers for a while. Medium body and carbonation. I donít know if I got a bad bottle but the stale/stinky flavor kind of ruins it for me.

At Howells and Hood in Chicago. In a snifter. Malty hop up front with a lingering long hop finish. The hop taste changes from concentrated orangey to a mild pine finish. Not for the weak of heart.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy, dark amber beer with a smooth, off-white head and a sharp, aroma of hoppy grapefruit. Taste is grapefruity as well, though thereís a bit of a citrus blend in there. Itís not all bitter and hoppy though. Thereís a good, grounded maltiness there too and an airy, floral feel to the backtaste. Really good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear, copper brown colour with some tan frothing on top. Rich, malty aroma, sweetness, brown sugar. Complex taste, with not too overpowering hops. Slightly bitter finish. Creamy smooth mouthfeel, low carbonation. Very good and well-rounded double ipa.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Smells of tons of tropical fruits, some floral and malt scent on the back. Really deep copper in color. Taste of sweet fruits with a touch of malt bitter dry finish that lingers for a bit which I liked. Med body sticky mouth feel. Nice carbonation that stays throughout the flavor profile. Love the sweetness and bitterness that are so well balanced in the great IPA. Nice work!

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Keg. Pours pale brown which suddenly shines golden when held to the light. Solid eggshell head. Smells of treacle and biscuits. Initially I just got a sweet mess of malts and waxy bitterness. Persevered and there is a complex floral hoppy character there but itís fighting the malts and not allowed to shine.
