Golden yellow pour. Tangy hop-citrus. Right up there with some of the best DIPAs I have had.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at the Stagshead Greenport night. Pours much more yellow than I would have though with almost no head. tastes of flowery hops, honey sweetness, light vanilla, and pine. Slight boozy warming and a touch caramel sweetness.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap. Finger of frothy white head; clearer rusty orange. Reserved floral and citrus hops with some sweetness. Decently hoppy, but restrained overall..fairly clean, and with a kiss of sweetness. Medium body. Just OK.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
My Bottom Line :
Soft and cuddly, this Double IPA shares lightly honeyed malts over spicy, sandy hops and their bitterness.
Further Personal Perceptions :
-A ring of foam surrounds the misty blond.
-This is not nearly as aromatic as most Double IPAs.
-A light alcohol bite accompanies the sandy hop bitterness.
-This is sweeter than expected, yet it is far from cloying.
-I’m not quite sure what they are aiming for with this brew, but at least it is competently brewed.
On tap at Rattle’n’Hum.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A blonde DIPA with a thin white head. In aroma, a light sweet malt with faint hops. In mouth, a nice grassy malt with herbal hops, more like a Imperial pils, very German hops, not bad. On tap at TAP NY, April 28, 2012.
