3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
bottle shared by mathieuc, many thanks dawg. pours dirty if not muddy golden orange with a small off-white cap, some retention and lacing. doughy and grainy spicy malts, pepper, grapefruit candies, dankness, weed, mint, resin. moderate carbonation, medium body - oily and a bit sticky, moderate sweetness - a tad sweet for a double ipa at 7% but an assertive hoppiness provides a drying grassy-spicy-piney-citrusy finish. much enjoyed that malt bill - very atypical for a dipa though. very good brew, still!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
bottle via box. Nose is a tropical fruit explosion. holy cow. lime, kiwi, sugar, mango. literally smells like a gummi bear truck dumped all the bears and worms into the fermenter. a very cloudy, almost murky dark orange to almost red. taste is initially bland, but then all those fruity and gummi flavors come through. wow, this is great. no noticeable booze. the hop bitterness seems a little low, and based on the stats, this may be more of an IPA than DIPA, but it could be the storage/age of the beer too. very solid, very drinkable. would repeat.
