3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle, consumed on 4-19-13. Sweet aroma features muffin, port, cookie, toffee, brownie, golden raisin, and caramel scents. Smells much more like a typical barley wine than a typical double IPA. Pours a hazy, effervescent, golden copper. Moderate amount of yellow/golden-taupe head. Produces good lacing. Initially dry but ultimately quite sweet taste features apricot, brown sugar, toffee, cookie, and biscuit flavors. Medium body. Silky and lively in the palate. Palate effects do not stand out. Overall, this seems much more like a barley wine than an IPA. Regardless of the style, it’s a good beer. 8/4/8/3/15=>3.8

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Awesome label but the final product is a little disappointing. Smells like dried apricot and a touch of booze. Taste has all the apricot in it with some heavy caramel. Booze comes through too much in this one. Not my kind of IPA at all

Pours dark orange with a thin tan head. Citrus(oranges) and caramel malt dominate the nose, with a hints of pine, alcohol and bread. Flavor is mOre malt than hops, but finishes very bitter and wade from the alcohol. Good beer not great.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle - Pours lightly hazy amber with a thin off-white head. Nose is sweet and buttery, with lots of hops. Taste is sweet and sticky, with pine and light grass hops. Long, sweet and slick finish, with a big thick body. Perhaps this one wasn’t the freshest as I got it from the mix-6 section, but not sure. Just too sweet and sticky for my tastes.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft to taster. Looks solid; a transparent dark orange with foamy off-white head that dissipates into sticky lacing. Smells of sweet malt and hops (in that order. Tastes like it smells with an averafe mouthfeel. Okay beer, but nothing special.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Hazy dark copper - low carbonation, oily texture - a lot or orange character throughout, but more like orange floor cleaner - a lot of butter in the nose and quite a bit in the flavor as well - abrasive throughout - very sweet - messy, and disappointing considering the quality of the ipa.
