3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured into a tulip. Pours a cloudy gold color... no expiration date on the bottle so Iím not sure if this was a bit old. Aroma of hops and malt, maybe a little citrus. Taste was medium bitter, not too flavorful. Thin mouthfeel with a light bitter finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at the Tap House Grill in Seattle. This beer pours a clear pale orange-gold color with a medium thin off-white head that evaporates steadily to an outer ring. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrusy hops and malt. Medium body with flavors of hops, grapefruit and sweet malt. The finish is hoppy with a short citrus aftertaste. Decent overall.

From tap at the brewpub. Pours clear and golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma is fruity and citrusy. Smooth fruity, grapefruity and pineneedle hoppy. Ends bitter and bone dry.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml bottle pours a pale amber color with a finger of white head that leaves only specks of lace on the glass. A mild earthy hop aroma with traces of citrus. Taste is a light malty sweetness finishing with a blast of lingering earthy and citrus notes. Medium bodied with some decent carbonation. This is a decent quality beer, but something in it just didnít sit right with me.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a solid dark yellowish golden color with ample foamy white head. Aroma is mostly hops oil, grapefruit, caramel and pine. The taste begins with a shot of resinous earthy hops, candied citrus and dried tropical fruit followed by a bit of brown sugar, toasted malt, alcohol and hops bitterness. The mouthfeel is full-bodied with adequate carbonation while the finish is more resiny hops and malt sweetness with a slight alcohol kick. Overall, a quality DIPA with lots of aggressive hops, sweet ctirus and caramel malt flavors to chew on.

3.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pale yellow with creamy white head. Nose of orange, pineapple, and bubblegum. Nice carbonation, more bubblegum, and candy sweetness in taste. Balanced out by serious resinous hop presence. Something murky lurks in the background. Could be the glass or the tap lines...this place is pretty dingy. Pretty good. Better than the rating suggests. Glad I tried it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 4, 2014 Clear and brightly golden with a nice and foamy head. Smooth, drinkable texture. Malty backbone (bready, nutty, toasty). Herbal, earthy, grassy and fruity (apples, pears). Mild-to-moderate bitterness. It doesnít seem to have a ton of complexity, but itís a solid beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle from Bottleworks. Transparent copper-colored appearance. The head is slightly fluffy, and it doesnít seem to be going anywhere. This has a nice, fresh pine hop aroma. Itís quite pungent, but it just doesnít reach that peak that so many other great Double IPAs have achieved. Damn, I should have caught this beer when it was more fresh. It has a nice citrus touch at the end, but itís mainly malty. It has a nice resinous texture, but that doesnít save it, taste-wise. Damn, I can imagine if I had this fresh it would be bursting with hoppy goodness. Now, not so much.
