4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Iíve been drinking this for a while, but it seems that Iíve finally gotten a fresh bottle, and what a difference it makes. The aroma is intensely floral, and quite marijuana like. Impressive. The appearance is exactly what a DIPA should be - amber, clear but with only a small head leaving little lacing. It tastes like a resinated primo bud. This is an excellent beer, almost perfect. And a great price tag as well. Drink it.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
A very bitter, very juicy, strong IPA. It pours a full, rich, orange gold color; medium, creamy head, average lace. The aroma is citrus, candied pineapple, grass, buttery malt... this is what west coast double IPAs smell like when they smell really good. The flavor is strong and tangy up front, and on the swallow there is a very bitter flood of hops. As hoppy as this is, Iíd still call it well balanced because of how different the front end is from the back.

Lovely gold color. Low head. Light hop smell. Starts slow with hops starting small but right away, then exploding into a mouth filling bitter. One dimensional but good.
