2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
This had a sweet taste to it. Perhaps it's the honey. Generally go for ipas where the hops are the dominate taste.
Bottle from whole foods

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12-oz. bottle. Malt-heavy nose with caramel and rich toffee tones and a touch of hoppy pine resin. Deep sunset orange color. Sharp pine bitterness bites hard upon the first sip before a sweet orange flavor and a hint of honey temper it somewhat. Traces of alfalfa and old stale barley come into play. Slick mouthfeel with a very abrupt dry finish. Not very impressive at all.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
Big sweet malty aroma followed by a subtle hoppiness. Thereís a LOT of malt like a huge syrup sweet farm of malt. Almost too much, this is rough. Tastes is maple syrup, brown sugar and alcohol. This probably sounds delicious to some but this isnít my cup of ipa. Itís really sweet and almost cloying. Iím not sure about this one, I wish I could have it on draft to see if itís better but right now the one I have is really sweet and tough to get through.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- A thick smelling blend of strong hops and a touch of malt, very good.
Appearance- Pours a golden brown with a slight amount of haze. Has a medium off-white head.
Taste- A big hop and yeast flavor that hides the high ABV. Really enjoyable.
Palate- A heavy bodied beer with moderate carbonation, has a very creamy texture.
Overall- A very good American DIPA, It is hard to find in Georgia but I would buy it again.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I like the beer, but itís a bit sweet for me. The bear pours a bronze color into a goblet glass with a small head. The smell and taste are dominated by honey and citrus. The aftertaste is very smooth. It does not taste like it has 10% ABV at all, which makes it extra "sneaky"...
