Bottle. Iíll agree with many of the other comments, this did not seem like a DIPA to me, at all. It wasnít bad but muted hops, overly malty and pretty bland.

Iím not sure who this Johnson fella is (Lydon B, Randy, or Howard either Met or hotel) but he makes a good beer. Iím a big fan of any beer that has a double or imperial in front of itís name, so this my turn series is right in my wheel house. This has a fresh hops type of taste, and is strong without it being noticeable. I could drink this all day, oh wait I did.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Caponeís. Pours turbid, bright orange juice color with a finger of frothy, loud, white head. Nose is intense, IBU-dripping hops, pineapple, mango, tangerine, grapefruit. Tastes resiny hoppy, with tropical fruit, a smooth, velvety, dense palate, and some white peppery and floral notes late. This was My Turn with my Johnson, and I bought extra, so next time, I will share my Johnson with yíall. And a Ba Ba Booey to yíall.

Clear amber with a thin white head.
Mild, sweet grapefruit/orange aroma.
Malty, orange and apricot..sweet with a dank hopiness.
Nicely balanced, overall...no overpowering notes anywhere. Just a smooth, sweet vs. bitter blending.
Very nicely done.

Bottle. Murky orange pour with a spotty soapy white head. Nice aroma of grapefruit and citrus - very nice. Soft juicy taste with a heavy dose of malt. Good beer.

Not a bad beer. I really expected more out of a double IPA. Kind of a letdown. Starts great, but finishes kind of weak.

UPDATED: JUN 22, 2014 This is a good one. Pours a clear, light golden yellow with little to no head. Aroma is marked by citrus and tropical fruit, and a very strong, very dank piney hoppiness. Flavor is also very hoppy and bitter, with some fruitiness, and just a bit of sweetness. Quite a bitter finish. Very good.

For a double IPA, this had less of the assertive hoppiness than I was expecting. You could chalk this up to good balance, but it could also just be a poor mixture of the hops which seem muted and understated.
