3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I gotta say. this isnít the best IPA Iíve ever had, but itís pretty damn solid. For an IIPA it should have more body to the taste, however, given the price of this beer it is totally worth it, great value, and not that bad of a beer at all. go for it, Itís a great buy if you need to pack a few bombers to pre game

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
POURS AND LOOKS LIKE A RUN OF THE MILL GOLDEN BEER. AROMA IS OF SPICY/SWEET FLORAL HOPS. NICE BITTER HOPS FLAVOR MIGHT BE A LITTLE LIGHT TO THE SEASONED BEER DRINKER . STILL QUITE REFRESHING. GOOD AS MOST DOUBLE IPAíS ARE, YET NOT STANDING OUT IN THE CROWD.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a cloudy golden color with about a finger of head and some nice lacing. There are lots of small particles floating around. Aroma is resinous hops, citrus, pine and a touch of malt. Nice. Taste follows the nose and is initially sweet but then the bitterness kicks in and lingers after the finish. I like the balance. The body is medium and slightly creamy and oily. A decent DIPA.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz bottle. Pous a hazy orange with a nice, white head, lots of lacing. Nose is bitter, piny hoppy, a nice yeasty stink, dried fruit. Medium-full body, soft, not too much carbonation, but surprisingly light feeling on the finish. Taste is heavy towards the hop side with the malts not really coming through til a bit of a sticky aftertase, but it is balanced by the fruitness- grapefruit, maybe orange. The hops are piny and earthy, bitter and delicious. Finish is a little crisp and very bitter. Quite enjoyable and reasonably priced. Is this unfiltered because I hated their other unfiltered IPA?

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bomber pour into a tulip glass. Color looks like an apricot -- quite striking. Aroma is fairly typical for an IPA, more on the grapefruit side of hops than pine. In the mouth itís fuller with more body than I expected, and initially thereís almost a sense of cream. I canít recapture that feeling on subsequent tastes, and the hops shine through with grapefruit and astringency. Thereís a bit of the roundness in the finish, and a hint of sweetness. Iíve gotten a bit burned out on super hoppy IPAs, but this strikes a nice balance between the hops and other beer flavors.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours surprisingly light straw color with a weak head. Not a very strong aroma of anything. Flavor of hops is there but very light. I expected much more for a "double" IPA. Its very drinkable and refreshing but I expected more. Iíll take a SIerra Nevada any day over this.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz. bomber. Pours a clear golden-amber with an average, slightly off-white head that lasts fairly well and leaves fair lacing. Great hop aroma of orange and grapefruit citrus accompanied by slight floral notes. The flavor is definitely hop forward with lots of grapefruit, some orange, and pine balanced nicely by a honey-like sweetness. The finish is slightly dry leaving a nice grassy hop flavor that lasts. Alcohol is well hidden. Full bodied. Medium-high carbonation. Nice imperial IPA.
