2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appearance: large and dense tan head, beer is a clear very dark amber color, almost brown
Aroma: cream, grass, pine, citrus, subtle yet complex, grain, malt sweetness,
Taste: strong bitterness, hints of coffee, dark roasted malt
Palate: medium mouthfeel, lively c02, leaves mouth feeling wet, strong bitter aftertaste
Overall: all malt initially when you drink it that fades to an intense bitterness, I'd like to see more hop character in the taste rather than just the bitterness

Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Beautiful luminous reddish brown brew with off white head, great lacing. Nice aroma dominated by resinous hops, Taste is full bodied sweetness at the start transitioning to a complex bitter end. A little alcohol at the end of the swallow. Excellent brew.

Deep amber pour with thin off-white ring. Sweet and spicy malt aroma. An unanticipated fruit sweetness up front....orange peel and citrus zest. A little grainy. The rye brings a nice balance to the sweetness. Terrific hop bitterness leads to dry finish. Very nice.

Hoppy as hell. Good double IPA. At the beginning it seemed too strong and to hoppy as for european guy :), but after cleaning up my mind (takes about 4-5 sips) I realize this beer is worthy enjoying.

12oz bottle from Brewforia Meridian. Poured a hazy brown with a single finger of tan head. Sweet, malty front that dives into a bitter hopfest at the end. No taste of the alcohol anywhere. This beer is a solid choice and one that I will keep on buying.
