an OK IIPA. Not impresse with the aroma, taste, or aftertaste, Citrus is there but not as strong as I would have hoped. It’s a decent IIPA, maybe I’d recommend this for someone who was looking for a lighter IIPA. Maybe the bottle I got was old

A good double IPA that has the hops of choice: warrior, centennial and simcoe. To my luck the amarillo hop is not overtaking the taste.

Dark orange reddish pour with a thin white head. Aroma is huge resin and citrus hop notes. Dank and deep. Orange lemon and resin really. Flavor is even more intense. Citrus notes are huge lemon and some sweet malt notes. Really tasty beer.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma is very, very dry pine-hops, the flavor is of a super-sized IPA more than a DIPA. There is a syrup flavor in there, but the regular hoppy and relatively balanced malt flavor is still there and makes this a very good regardless of what you categorize it as.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle shared by a friend. Pours a hazy, apricot colored with small white head. Aroma of big resinous and tropical fruit. Big and bold and delicious. Flavor of massive papaya, guava, and ruby red grapefruit. Subtle sugars in the finish. Awesome beer. A world class iiipa.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Very heavy amber, fairly dirty in color, moderate to large frothy whitish head, fairly nice lacing. Sweet citrusy nose, candyish, hops are there but its not in a bitter way. Sweet citrusy, pine, candied citrus peel, and hops on the tongue.   Tastes pretty damn good. Seems like a lot of these import IIPAs have this candyish sweetness to them without the bittering, but luckily this seems fairly balanced. Could stand to be a bit maltier, chewy, to ring out the backside. Some alcohol seeps in towards the finish. Body and mouthfeel seem fairly moderate. Hops seem to make most of the appearance towards the end, sweetness dies down, the bitterness comes through a bit more. Pretty much what I expected, perhaps even a little better. Thanks again Jeff!

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Der Antrunk gleicht einer Hopfenbombe, sowohl hocharomatische als auch bittere Hopfenteile sind dabei vorhanden, der Aromahopfen überwiegt aber. Später wird die Bitterkeit stärker, waspassend zum übermächtigen grasigen und erdigen Hopfen ist. Dadurch wirkt das Bier in Teilen zu süß. Zum Ende hin machen sich Zitrusaromen breit, Birke, Melone, etwas Birne. Trotz des starken Hopfen ist das Bier einigermaßen, wenn auch nicht perfekt harmonisch. Zum Ende astringent und sehr bitter. Gewöhnungsbedürftiger Wechsel. 8/12/8/12/12/12
