3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(bottle - 12 oz) Copper pour with a thick white head. Big floral hop aroma with some mild citrus. Really nice citrus and flowery hop beginning with a smooth and lightly sweet middle. Very subtle bitterness at the end that doesn’t overpower it. Doesn’t drink like 9% either.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Rcvd in trade. Consumed 11/16/2013.
The appearance had a hazy golden somewhat of a yellowish colored body with a half a finger white foamy head that quickly dies into the body, light carbonation is seen rising at a moderate pace, not any lacing is seen
The smell has a fragrant citrus fruits with a nice backing by the malts, though a mild bitterness enters in as it warms.
The taste started off bitter but a nice dose of sweet maltiness comes in after some warming up, bitter citrusy aftertaste, dry finish.
The palate had a light to medium, fairly sessionable, carbonation is a bit smoother than most DIPA’s, but I’ll take it, no worries.
Overall, I say this is a good DIPA that I would have again. Good thing about this is that if you nurse this one long enough, it will warm up enough to assist in noticing that its pretty balanced. Take it if you see it, as I probably won’t see it again for a while.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pretty stander double IPA. Nothing that jumps out at you with this beer, but everything is still quality/decent.

Pours hazy golden yellow, barely any head. Smells of citrus, hops, pine, resin and orange. Taste starts off sweet then bitters to floral hops, pine, orange and citrus. Very Smooth. Light body and carbonation.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a clear copper body under a small fizzy off-white head that faded to a wispy film. Some light lacing. The nose is pretty decent, some nice resiny and citrusy hops over a lightly sweet caramel malt base. A little too sweet for my preference in the flavor department, a heavy caramel malt base leaves a lingering brown sugar like finish. The hops are pretty resiny but have a fairly restrained bitterness level. Not quite enough bitterness in this to stand up to all this malt. Medium bodied and fairly chewy in texture with soft fizzy carbonation. An OK Double IPA I suppose, but not really up my alley as far as the flavor profile goes.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours an opaque, hazy golden color with a slight white head. Aroma of citrus and malt. Taste is a very thick mouthfeel of grapefruit, lemon, moderate bitterness and thankfully no oily taste on the lips like many doubles. Interesting once, not sure I’d want to have too many.

4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Probably my favorite hop bomb out there and easily the standout of Ithaca's Box of Hops. Killer aroma and a hop bite that is just high enough to hit you hard without destroying your palate. I love this beer and hope they keep brewing it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Lightly hazy orange yellow with a small sudsy white lace. Nose is grassy, light onion/garlic, herbal, light malt presence. Flavor is similar—a bit too resinous and herbal for my liking. Booze pretty well hidden. Okay.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Ron. Hazy medium gold, I like hazy. Nose is full and refreshing grapefruit. Palate is rich and resinous, silky and a touch sweet. Ends a bit dry. No alcohol detected. Yes, this is quite well done indeed.
