4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Deep muddy amber. Aroma is perfume of floral hops. Terrific full body palate. I was expecting an overpowering hop Ipa, but this brew is very well balanced. Slight sweetness in the initial sip of honey. The high abv is almost completely unnoticeable. I was a little hesitant to buy it at the market for $3.5 per bottle, but this brew delivers. Excellent IPA!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle, sent from Neillago (thanks a lot, Neil), pours a fairly clear dark copper orange with a small off-white head. Aroma brings out fairly subtle notes of piney hops, a little resin, and caramel malt. Flavour brings out loads of resinous hops, some slightly sweet residual sugars, caramel malt, and a small hint of grapefruit. Fairly restrained for a IIPA, with a solid malt backbone holding this together without being cloyingly sweet. Very good.

Bottle, shared with Parksy, TylerDurden, and Rosser. Deep orange colour, light golden pillowy head. Sweet papaya and tropical fruit aroma. Very sticky, sweet palate, loaded with tropical fruit character. Just a bit too sweet for my tastes.

Clean, glassy, clear bodied IPA with a bold, orange color and a fine, airy bright white head. It looks the part of a Californian double IPA. It has a bad-ass aroma, packed with piney, resinous hops and clean, crisp caramel malts. Wow, this smells good.
It’s clean and crisp, fresh and sharply hop-forward in the mouth. Although clean and clear in both appearance and flavor, there’s also a doughey thickness that prevents it from being too thin overall. A strong alcohol presence easily dominates the finish, and couples well with the strong hop flavor to offer what I love the most about great double IPAs, while not having too much of a malty body. There’s some bitterness in the finish, but it doesn’t last long, as the alcohol steers the experience in a different direction.
Thin, but packed with lots of sticky, resinous hop and alcohol flavor with just enough sweetness to keep it in balance and leave a tasty combination of all of it behind on your lips. Great job, and a perfect example of a west-coast American double IPA in my
