12oz bottle, no date!!! for shame! a big sweet beer, like aged 120min but no hops to be found. I would love to try a world class IPA aged, to really nail down how bad an IPA can get..

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sweet malt aroma with slight apricot and alcohol nose. Orange/amber color with slight chill haze. Nice malt backbone with hop bitterness present. Not astringent without any noticeable diacetyl. Has a dry finish with a smooth alcohol flavor present. Medium body with no astringent flavors. Clean, drinkable 2xIPA - it is well hopped and balanced with the malt backbone. More aroma hops and perhaps more assertive flavor hops would make this beer score higher.

Puts a slightly cloudy apricot color, nice thick head, lots if carbonation. Strong aroma, lots of hops with some pine notes. The flavor is really good. It has a sweetness on the front and then bitterness down the back. Very long finish. Great beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy copper with a creamy head. Medium lacing. Floral sweet aroma but with alcohol tinge. Bold hoppy taste at first slightly bitter then a sweet grapefruit in the back end. Let this one sit and sip. Will pack a punch.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Poured hazy copper color with a large frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy floral hop, cotton candy and fruit hop aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy smooth bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This is a good interesting beer.

Smells like orange rind. Amber color in glass. The hops take a millisecond before they hit your tongue, but the hit it hard and don’t let up until after it is swallowed. A good DIPA.

Berries in the nose, and a bit of floral hops. Clear light orange appearance. Frothy head. Interesting taste, malt, berries, hops. Finishes very dry. No alcohol detected. Decent.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice copper color. Clean filtered. Nice head. The hops are not as potent as one would expect from a double IPA. The Malta seem a little more prevalent in the flavor. Though the hops seemed to stick a little more as I drank it. Palate stickige.
