earthy grassy hop aroma with caramellish malts apparent as well.slight hint of fruittiness...looks nice..dark orange clear color with creamy off white head..the taste is where the hops really start to dominate..citrus,piney,resiny spicy and peppery the maltiness appears as it warms very well done.very substantial..that first sip is a hop monster however..pretty thick and creamy for the type as well goes down easy and quickly with a lingering bitter aftertaste..will be buying this one again

Hazy golden orange pour white sticky head ... citrusy and grainy hop aroma .... taste of lots of sugar and citrusy light piney hops .... a bitter hop mouthfeel with a dry hop finish .... not a bad double sugar totally masks the abv ... a very drinkable double ipa not bad

My comrades have rated this lower than I and I am not sure why. A nice citrus and pine aroma from an amber pour with a very thin head. Pine a citrus with a malt sweetness in the flavor. Very nice and long lasting after taste. Quite nice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Capone’s with Dallas and Linh. Pours a clear gold with a slight haze. Aroma is sweet malty hop that lends in giving the beer a smooth mouthfeel inviting flavors of sweet juicy citrus and pine hop.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasty malt-forward double IPA. Subtle pine/citrus aroma wafts up from a frothy head perched on a amber colored liquid. Strongly bitter, leaning more toward a massive British beer rather than its California counterparts.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear muted gold with a big tan head. Aroma is rather faint with a bit of tropical fruit. Taste is sweet and alcoholic with roasty notes equal in prominence to hope notes, with the exception of big ruby red grapefruit into the finish. $7/22oz

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours orange with minimal white lace. Nose of citrus and resinous pine, some sweet malts, light alcohol. Flavor takes a backseat to aroma, starts bitter with some sweetness in the middle with a bitter finish. Just not all that well balanced/meshed.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Capones. Pours a hazed bright orange with a nice sticky resinous off white head. Aroma is nice citrus hops, but lots of sweet pale malts, carapils and some caramel in there- some pine and light tropical fruit. Flavor is a bit too sweet overall , especially in the finish when the sweetness turns to almost a corn syrup flavor and consistency- ok amounts of hops, but it just needs more- some pine hints, and mango with light citrus- clean overall, but just not where it needs to be for a DIPA.
