1.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pours a deep rich amber color with a big three finger head... Aromas are sweet toffee butterscotch with a touch of pine. On the palate this really is a mess... Butterscotch and alcohol, taste like an overly sweet barley wine that was mixed with a half glass of tap water.... slight bitterness in the finish, other than that where are the hops... again where are the hops ?

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A: Orangish/Golden Straw Hue, Passes Some Light, Thick White Head, Good Lacing
S: This smells like a bad, gritty barleywine. There is zero bottle dating but I am going to say that this is an old bottle.
T: This is completely devoid of any hops...
M: Great Carbonation, Light to Medium Bodied, ...this is either an old bottle or just junk.
Overall....nothing more to say.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can from Whole Foods - El Segundo. Big grapefruit nose, some floral notes, too. Hazy dark straw. bid rocky head. Heavy toffee, caramel initial; hops poke through in mid, but not much; final has some mild hop traces over thick sweetness. Medium-heavy body. Maybe less-than-stellar ingredients are used in this one. Contract brewed for Fox Brews. Okay. A bit too sweet.

Can. Pours bright clear gold. Huge fresh nose and big white head. Taste iOS fresh with a nice citrus hop profile. Decent malt balance. I would drink this often if i could find it in tx.

Draft: I have two rules for drinking beers, 1) drink local and 2) always try something new. This one is brutal on the alcohol presence, needs a lot of balance. Food Pairing: Strong, stinky cheese.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can. Pours amber with no head and some floaties. Stale hop aroma, alcohol overly present. Flavor like a bad barleywine, really sticky sweet and surprising lack of hops despite being moderately fresh.

Light amber pour with a light tan head. Aroma is citrus, pineapple. Taste is a nice malt backbone with good hop flavor. A little spicy at the end. Nice hop aftertaste-ok lacing.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can. Pours a deep orange color with a thin white head. Tangy aroma with a nice, dry, hoppy feel. Nice, tart kick with sweet hops in the background. Excellent balance for a canned double IPA. Very impressive.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. can- Pours hazy orange with a one finger creamy off white head. Aroma is hops and malt, somewhat resinous. The taste is overly malty for an IPA, there is a hop presence, but way too much malt, caramel malt and IPA should not be used in the same sentence in my opinion. It isnít horrible, but not for me.
