3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 11, 2014 Loaded with caramel. Citrus hops, orange, grains, a bit musky with hints of tropical fruit and light berry sweetness. Good balance from the hop bitterness. Smooth feel and good carbonation.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tasted from bottle. Pours a clear orange amber with white head. Incredible aroma. Big time citrus notes but also floral and pine. Flavor also excellent. Orange, grapefruit, pine, earthy flavors with a caramel sweet malt backbone. Complex and very well balanced for double IPA. Hides alcohol very well and goes down very smoothly. Medium bodied with a creamy and clingy mouthfeel. Excellent IPA.

Nice Amber colored pour. Aroma is tangy citrus hops, with a hint of pine. Taste is wonderful, sweet upfront with a blast of citrus and pine hop dry finish. Great beer, very well crafted and hides the abv wonderfully.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Reddish copper pour from 12oz bottle. Fine sediment floating. Half finger of white foam. Very floral with a touch of pine and citrus. Mango, tropical fruits, sweetness and citrus "twang." Maybe a tad sweet for me, but really well crafted. You taste NO alcohol, even though there are big alcohol legs on the glass.

Best Great Lakes beer I've had! A lot of citrus up front and a super hoppy finish. Defiantly a must try!

4.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Reddish/amber color with malty aroma. Creamy head that doesn’t last long, but nice Belgium lace. Honey/carmel sweet malt taste that lays on the palate with a bitter grapefruit taste at the end.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Darkish amber color. Aroma is malt, honey, alcohol. Taste is very close to the aroma, with the addition of some nice hops bitterness. A tiny bit too sweet for my tastes in a DIPA, but still an excellent example of the style. Reminds me a bit of Hopslam, but not quite in Hopslam’s league.
