2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I dislike Single IPAs, and this is more of a concentrated Single IPA than a DIPA. Nice aroma, fresh hops galore. Hoppy assault on my palate, particularly as I swallow; hoppy bitterness lingers. Too much hop resin for me; if you like that stuff you'll love this brew.

3.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Picked this up at the Farmer’s market last week. Fridge temp into a Duvel tulip.
A - 1 finger mix of tight and big bubbles. white head. Bright orange glow, unfiltered.
S - Wow. Smells incredible! the Jade and Nelson smell so so good. Grapefruit, tangerines and honey. Huge orange peel zestiness.
T - Wow. There’s this weirdness up front..Gotta agree with others and say cheese. It’s very odd very striking and in charge and totally unexpected. Yeah, sharp blue cheese. finish is more citrus and a very pine needle bite.
M - Medium body..sort of boozy.
O - This was an interesting beer. Glad I only bought one. It’s good but not Sean’s best.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Prohibition Pig and Three Penny Taproom. Pours a straw/honey color with white fluffy head. Aroma is citrus fruits, melon, vinous notes, light biscuit, cracker. Taste is very tropical fruit forward with dank grassy bite. Finishes dry as a bone with sharp bittering. Reminds me of a slightly more tropical less sweet version of double sunshine. Awesome.

UPDATED: OCT 20, 2013 Growler pour at Bills. Huge thanks for sharing this beauty. Pours a cloudy, glowing, golden color with small snow white head. Aromas and taste of cheesy, and dank hops. Tons of nelson, grapefruit, lemons, pine, bitter and perfectly balanced dry hopping. Finishes crisp and flavorful. Tons of resin in this brew. Top 3 from lawsons for me. Tried again in bottle, insanely good with mango, kiwi, and other pineapple goodness
