1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Probably my least favorite well-regarded DIPA in the world. Nose of chemical pine cleaner, hints of sweet maltiness. Taste follows in kind with a strange sharp note of berries, but I cannot really wrap my head around what it is that makes this beer so off-putting to me. It just is. I hadn’t tried it in years and thought maybe I was just imagining my dislike back in ye olden days, but I still just cannot abide this beer at all.

3.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap pour at Upstairs (Mtc) of cloudy orange amber with 1/2 inch white head. Hint of citrus & pine scents. Rough initial taste of grapefruit with hint of tar. Unlike other double IPAs, bitterness does not fade much. Taste is very much "in you face", but not overly complex. Interesting to try, but not my mug of ale.

One of my favorite Imperial IPAs. I forget why exactly. I need to go drink one again real soon. Suffering from beer amnesia. Too many beers, not enough recall!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours typical IPA amber with a quite white head and a moderately hopped nose. Flavor is a little restrained on the hops for the gravity but still plenty of character and, perhaps most importantly, a lot of balance. Alcohol is well hidden. Not exceptional among its peers but it does everything right.

Poured from the tap at the Biergarten in Charleston, SC into a pint glass.

Appearance- A mildly murky copper colored beer with a thick small white head
Taste- A nice malt and hop mix that hides the high ABV well.
Palate- A medium to heavy bodied beer with moderate carbonation.
Overall- A great DIPA, highly recommended.

Draft. Amber color. Nice full citrus floral hop with a big malt backbone. Medium heavy bitterness. Medium to medium heavy body. A big, hoppy beer. Good but yikes.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
BOTTLE 355 ML from Bov. Bottled 24-SEP-2014. Red-amber slightly hazy with tan smallish head. It is hoppy enough after the pour, with notes of sweet citrus and mango, menthol candy, but after a couple of minutes the malts totally dominate - lots of caramel and marmalade. The taste is malty right from the start, overly sweet fruit with a touch of alcohol and a somewhat harsh moderate bitterness. Not bad, anyway.
