4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle, no date from Hollingshead, $5.99. Clear amber orange with a two finger yellowish white head, creamy with good retention. Loads of caramel malt up front in the aroma with citrus, pineapple, and resiny pine hops competing for dominance, floral hops hiding behind. Flavor still has a hearty malt backbone, with the hops staying mostly the same until the finish, where they turn into mangoes and berries. Semi-dry finish with some lisght alcohol and bitterness peaking at a 4-5. Full-body with moderate soft carbonation. Pretty tasty non-West Coast DIPA from the West Coast.

Pours clear golden with thick, solid sheets of lacy head. The nose was spicy. The flavors, they were hoppy, spicy, piney, and a bit resinous... the body was thick and syrupy, yet not too much so...the hops tend to turn grassy...the alcohol is pronounced, yet not really hot...there’s a stinging wetness thoug...a residual bitter metalicness of the hops, but really...in an overall setting...its not too shabby for the overrated style of double fucknut IPA.

Bomber from Bevmo. Medium amber in color. Sweet nose of citric hoppiness. Thick mouthfeel. Fairly sweet with a big hop bite. Big and syrupy. Grapefruit dominates. Alcohol is well hidden. Pretty tasty with a good mouthfeel.

Nice bottle from mr. snojerk. A solid well balanced IPA with a touch of hop bitterness but a lot of malt back bone and sweetness. It reminds me a lot of an orange jolly rancher. Hint of citrus flavor is preceeded by a smothering hop nose and sugar notes. Finish is smooth and slightly bitter.

22 oz bottle. Clear amber/orange with a small off white head. Aroma of caramel, pine, citrus and bread. Flavor is lots of sweet caramel malt and a mellow bitterness. Medium body with mild carbonation and a soft, smooth mouth feel. Pretty good IPAx2 on the sweeter side.

I really like the Nelson Sauvin hop. The grape taste is great. It works so weel with the hop bitterness. This is more of a regular IPA than a double.

Huge passionfruit nose - I thought this must be galaxy hopped, not Nelson. Fairly straight forward DIPA body and texture wise, toffee, caramel and a bit helping of citrus and passionfruit. Very tropical. Unique and fun.
