3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a clear copper color with a thin head. Aroma of dank, tropical, melon hops, caramel malts. The taste is bitter herbal, dank, tropical hops with some caramel malts. Medium bodied, lingering bitterness, decent balance.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
clear deep golden, slightly amber. beige super creamy head with good lacing. aroma has lots of caramel, plenty of citrus/pine in the hops, but not overpowering. flavor is a nice balanced mix of caramel malts with plenty of resin/pine/citrus hoppiness. Finish is really long and numbs the tongue a bit. I’m totally burned out on DIPAs, but I think this is a really well made one.

This is a solid double IPA. The appearance and palate insane though. Grassy and pine hops dominate the aroma. Great beer to go with Enchanted and Christmas. Woo Santa!

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
If you have ever had Bells Hopslam, it's a lot like that.
Lots of malt sweetness. If you like hops and sweet beers, this Double IPA should be high on your list.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bomber. Finally getting around to this one. It pours a nice clear deep golden orange with a lasting white head. The aroma is sweet hop candy with peaches, florals, mild grapefruit and caramel. Some faint hints of those sweet circus peanut candies. The flavor is bitter and floral with some pretty strong alcohol, peach, and and piney/florals in the finish. Full bodied, but not too cloying. The alcohol leaves a burn. Pretty good IIPA, if a bit alcoholic.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
A: Pours amber ale with two fingers of faded caramel foam which slowly falls to a quilt of the same. Ringed sheets of lacing. Good looker.
S: Tangerines, pine, a bit of floral character (soapy). Some distantly sweet malts in the back.
T: Hmm, was this done with belgian yeast?! Has a yeasty, coriander like flavor I often associate with tripels. Otherwise, quite bitter with creamy sweetness off the malt/weird flavor. Some peppery sage like flavors. Not really digging this as a DIPA
M: Medium on heavy body for the style. Moderately smooth and lifeless carbonation.
O: Really surprised by this beer, with a name like hop juice, I thought this would be a little more complex. Huh, guess I got sold. Not a very good beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle shared, pours deep orange with white head. Huge hop nose you name its in there. Citrus and pine and grassy. Medium bodied and not cloying like some can be. Very nice hop flavor blended well and not overly bitter. Has some caramel tones in there.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy amber-orange with a small, off-white head.
Orange malt aroma.
Taste is sweet, orange, citrus, a little pine.
Heavier resin notes at finish.
Not bad at all, but pretty mild for a double.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a hazy copper color with a decent off white head. The nose is mostly citrusy hops. The flavor has a sweet maltiness up front. Lighter pine and citrus in the back. Missing any kind of big hop punch. Seems like just a pale ale to me, with double the alcohol mind you.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Great appearance, no balance, bland taste, so-so aroma of hops. Tastes of caramel, overwhelming. Would not recommend.
