3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a clear dark orange with a nice thick white head. Aroma is hoppy but mildly so, not as "in your face" as expected. Taste however is alot of piney grapefruit hop flavorl that we all know and love. This beer capitalizes even more on its already appealing aroma. This sort of reminds me of the flavor of Pliny the Younger or Dreadnaught but just not quite making the cut. Still an GREAT beer and wish I could get this bottled where I live, it would become one of my regulars.

The hops sting your tongue, then then quickly disappear without lingering. Light and refreshing. Near perfect for hops without that gross mouth resin feel afterwards.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz. bottle. Poured a cloudy orange/gold color with a little white head. The aroma is very hoppy and hints of pine. Nice lacing on this one with taste that is sweet with a moderate dry finish. A very balenced IPA.

Ppurs a good looking orangish gold hue with a light lacy head. Nose of fresh hops, and tastes like it too. Citrusy, crisp clean finish. An excellent IPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice copper-coloured beer with lingering head. Hoppy, nearly oily aroma with nice malt backbone. The flavour is of sweet malt and citrusy, flowery hops. Moderately bitter and not that dry.
A fine, elegant and well-made ipa. Balanced and just very ipaish.

Pine and citrus hop flavors with a solid presence of sweet malt, I thought this had a surprisingly complex flavor. Enjoyable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bottle poured into a pint glass. This beer pours a clear amber/orange with a thick foamy beige head that lasts. Some nice heavy lacing is left behind. The aroma is very citrusy along with a good dose of toffee and caramel. The flavor is mainly grapefruit and caramel. The are also notes of pine and bread. Flavor is well balanced. Finish is lightly bitter and quick. The mouthfeel is just slightly oily/resiny with a bit of carbonation. Medium-bodied. Very well done. My only complaint might be that this beer may not be strong enough to hold up against other double IPAs.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden coloured with a white head. Grapefruit and a bit of pine like aroma. The tatse is mostly hops but they aren’t huge and explosive like I would expect an IIPA. There is some good bitterness though. Overall pretty good, but not great.

Not being privey to many Yankee IIPA’s, comparisons are few and far beetween. This one just seemed a little to soft and restrined compared with other tried in the past. No tounge fuzzing bitterness, and the hop aroma seemed a little one dimensional
