3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a burnt orange with little head and some nice lacing. Nose of sweet malts and piney hops. Taste is nowhere near as sweet as the aroma. Piney hops dominate this DIPA with a little hint of caramel malts and a bit of citrus hops. Alcohol is very prominant throughout. Lively carbonation lightens the strong alcohol taste. Sticky on the lips. Bitter lingering finish

Bottle. Clear deep golden/copper color with a rich lasting offwhite head. Malty fruity aroma at first, peach, pine apple, hay, mango, pine, perfume, very nice bitterness growing stronger and stronger, grapefruit, woody, nice notes of caramel. Malty fruity flavor, peach, grass, citrus, biscuits, pine needles, plum, pineapple, some warming alcohol, mango, perfume, woody, caramel. I’m so impressed to see all flavors coming together, this beer never gets extreme, still it keeps bringing new flavors all the time. Malty finish with grapes, mango, pine, caramel and a growing bitterness. Lovely!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours deep orange with a foamy white head that leaves behind some sticky lacing. The aroma is strong grapefruit and pine. The taste is big boozy hops on a background of caramel malts. Pretty solid, could probably lay it down for a while.

A good solid Imerial IPA from the brewers of my favorite IPA - Harpoon. Big hoppy front with lots of boozy taste. Finishes with a malty backbone and a floral taste. Great stuff. I’d buy it again. Not my favorite Imperial IPA but, SUPER GOOD!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear amber/copper color with some off-white head. Aroma is not strong and mainly citrus with a hint of malt. The alcohol is becoming much more noticeable as it warms. Taste is what you would expect from the aroma. There are some hops and malt with neither being particularly strong. I can also detect some subtle sweetness. I expected this to be a much hoppier beer. The alcohol is not hidden very well compared to other beers with a comparable abv. The body is medium and the finish is dry and crisp with a little bitterness.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Orange/amber is color with a nice white head. Lacing left all around the glass. Heavy citrus malty aroma. Taste translates from aroma with more hops w/grass and citrus coming thru. Little alcohol is detected and the finish is very clean. Not too bad of an DIIPA....would drink again.
