4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Poured from a 12oz bottle - best by date of 5/28/14
Aroma - sweet tropical aroma. Mango, pineapple, peach.
Appearance - clear amber color, don’t see too many bubbles coming from the bottom. Head disapated very quickly.
Taste - Fantastic. Very light, easy drinking for a 9.4%. Dangerously easy.
Palate - Keeps the tropical mouthfeel .
Overall - Fantastic DIPA. It has everything I am looking for in a DIPA. Possibly my only complaint, it only comes in a 12oz bottle.

4.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle. Amber-orange medium to full bodied w/ moderate head. Bursting at the seams with tropical fruit in the nose: guava, peach, passion fruit, kiwi, berries. Faint malt. Smells unbelievable. Ample bitterness up front with a firm malt backbone. You can detect the alcohol ever so slightly. Not getting the distinct fruit flavors that I did with the aromas. However, there is still definitely a potpourri of fruitiness going on. A little sticky with a biscuit-malt thing happening. This is definitely going in the DIPA rotation for me, a really nice beer. Would love to try super fresh to see if the fruity hop flavors are more pronounced.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Got this from a friend visiting from Ohio.....thanks Mr. Matt! Nice fragrant aromas of piney hops, mixed with citrus, and floral notes. Rusty orange appearance, with a tan head. Sweet honey malt, with notes of citrus at first. Bitterness bleeds in, and is a nice counter to the sweet....meld together nicely. Finish is a warm alcohol feel, with a peppery bitter bite on the end. Decent Imperial...tastes accentuate as it warms up.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared by 5k - thanks! Amber pour, clear, big bubbles.aroma more tropical - tangerine creamcicle, caramel, a little pine, bitter finish, sweeter than Zombie Dust (had just before this) by quite a bit, which cuts the bitterness a lot. Slick, full body, soft carbonation. A little syrupy. Overall: nice, with a fair bit of sweetness in this one. My rating is probably a bit low, but that’s a matter of circumustance. It sucks to be a sweet hoppy beer following a particularly good dry hoppy beer, at least in my mouth.

Bottle. Bright shiny copper. Sweet earthy hops. A touch of honey on the finish. Candied sugar taste. Alcohol is completely hidden at 9%. Rich and sweet, very drinkable. Overall delicious. Everything I want in a double ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
My favorite IPA hands down. Strong start with a nice finish and a lingering hop with enough citrus to balance it all.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a reddish golden with a white head which disappears quickly. Aroma is pine and heavy citrus, grapefruit. Taste is overwhelming grapefruit, crisp for a heavy mouthfeel, no residual oiliness, sweet malt and minimal bitterness. Finishes very clean for a double. Quite impressive.
