3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Winooski Beverage Warehouse. Aroma: caramel and grapefruit upfront, rhum, alcohol. App: clear copper, with small head and some lacing. Taste and palate: medium body, light carbonation, medium sweetness with light dry long bitter finish. Overall: not enough fruity for my tastes but still a traditional IPA with American hops.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy caramel body with a tinge of orange. Half inch foam off-white head that fades to thin film with a smattering of moderate bubbles. Aroma is a citrus with an apple-like crispness in the background. Some earthy pine can be detected. Initial blast of bitterness is noticeable but not overwhelming.Malt sweetness reminds me of apple with some sourness in the finish. Has a nice wet and sweet finish. Feels on the heavy side but still drinkable. It’s seems to say I’m friendly drink with a serious side. I look forward to more of these and I’ll recommend them too.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice, but nothing special double ipa. Brighter amber orange. Citrus and malt heavy in the nose. Big sweetness. More piney and caramely in the taste. Thin mouthfeel for a 10%er.

It poured a clear amber/orange color with a white head. The aroma was of sweet caramel malts, a little citrus and a touch earthy hops. The taste was of caramel sweetness, medium to heavy sweet for IIPA, pretty big bitterness, more citrus and a touch pine. Nice.
