stuckinprague (43) - - OCT 28, 2012
Aroma: Boozy, touch of malt, almost no hop presence. Appearance: straw golden, light fair head. Taste: Big and malty, balanced by hops, but no hop flavour or bitterness typical of even a IPA. Fairly boozy, but very smooth. Palate: Just like any IIPA. Overall: Just not enough hop flavour or aroma to give this a good rating. Better than nothing, but not comparable to many other beers out there.

jredmond (6062) - Manhattan, New York, USA - MAY 16, 2015
Bottle at Half Marathon Tasting - May 16th. Pours a bright reddish orange with thin white lacing. Aroma is spice, fruity caramel and lots of belgian characteristics - spicy fruit, banana, clove, etc. Mouthfeel is medium to soft, not abrasive really, but lots of banana and spice. Some metal as well. $2 beer?

Beersmithbacon (93) - San Luis Rey, California, USA - MAY 14, 2015
Some hops but very little for xxipa. Same with flavor no big hop oiliness nor much of a malt character. Light and lean in mouthfeel.

notalush (5269) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 26, 2015
Bomber as Boatswain - hazy orange - decent lace - outside of the appearance, it’s pretty uninspiring - watery, stale - smells like orange juice, stale malts, circus peanuts (the candy) - flavor is sweet, but also somewhat sourish - minimal hops presence - juice fruit gum - kind of metallic finish - all over the place and not that good.

euniceradio (99) - Colton, California, USA - APR 17, 2015
Labeled as Boatswain Double IPA. Poured hazy amber. Light head. Aroma of caramel, OJ and sweet grain malts. Taste is 97% malt and alcohol, 3% faint hops. Tastes like an Irish Red / Light Brown Ale hybrid. WHO THOUGHT THIS WAS A DIPA???? Decided to rate as anything but an IPA.

BrewHaMeister (228) - - APR 4, 2015
Bottle pours amber with a beige head and little lacing. Aromas heavy with malt and dough with little our no hop. Not sure this beer is categorized correctly. Taste is pretty good but this is not a DPIA.

Was very disappointed in this DIPA. Was expecting something more. It was a malt bomb with not that noticeable of a hop character. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dojken (320) - - MAR 7, 2015
Flaska. Doft av svagdricka o karamell. Smaken är något vinig där finns en svag sötma o sedan kommer en dammig något vass beska. Lagerölkänsla. Lättdrucken!!

Doftar Pilsner toner åh metall syrlig. Smakar likt doften plus lite trä. Ja enkel medelfyllig lättdrucken Dipa med på tok för mycket pilsner inslag å ingen fruktighet..

BillKismet (3418) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 25, 2015
Brassy amber with a decent head. Fruity nose and some stale grains. The body is smooth and fruity, a bit of candy syrup. Not much bitterness. Quite sweet and short on the bitterness for a "double IPA, Juicy, fruit punch finish.
