4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours a deep bubbling copper with a small off white head. Full toasted hop, pineapple, lemon, malt, and juniper to the nose. Flavors have a driving juniper tone with the pine hops riding along. Solid malt backing. Notes of lemon and sage. Mouth is medium to full bodied with a mice mild bitter. A real nice DIPA. A little underrated IMHO.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours the color of iced tea with a long lasting tan head. The nose is all hops -- pine, citrus, and floral. I like the variety of hop aromas. Lots of hops in the taste bu tnot overly bitter. Juniper and a little bit of Christmas spice. Flavors linger long on the palate. For a 2IPA I would have liked more of a malt backbone but still enjoyed the hops and spiciness nonetheless.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to AmEricanbrew. Pours with a hazy brown with a ring of head. Aroma is hoppy and spiced with tea, herbal and earthy notes. Taste is hoppy, herbal, a bit catty with sarsaparilla and juniper notes. Light carbonation.
Sadly, this one looses points from me as the sage and juniper are overpowering and looses drinkability for me.
