Location/Date:Bottle on August 16th, 2013.

Appearance: Pours an orange opaque.
Aroma: Light pine, citrus, biscuit malt.
Taste: Medium bitterness, some light pine, citrus.
Palate:Medium body, slightly sticky, lingering aftertaste.

Summary: I don’t know if my bottle was old, but this was just okay. The amount of hops in the front isn’t as high as expected for a DIPA. Decent.

GJF (1248) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - AUG 15, 2013
Pours a dark amber, dense white head. Aroma is lots of fresh, leafy hops, floral with a bit of cat pee. Flavor is also quite floral, a deep malt backbone. Tons of flavor here, but overall I found it a bit harsh and unbalanced. A good dipa, but not a great one.

Pour is orangish copper with a cream colored head. Nose is hoppy with notes of pine, mango, pineapple and citrus. Taste is nice with good hop bitterness and malt backbone. Malt is more present than hops but still a nice flavor not the most complex dipa but good. Mouthfeel is light/medium. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very hoppy aroma. Full and somewhat sweet, a certain thinness, underlying hops that are not too strong and bitter. Malt, caramel, and a smooth hops finish. Very different double IPA.

Bomber bottle. Aroma is hoppy. Appearance is a deep amber with a nice foamy head. The taste starts out a different type of hop then rolls into a nice hop flavor. Palate is bitter, but good for a double ipa. Overall, a good double. Well balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
