3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle. Big, sweet tangerine hop flavor comes as a surprise as there is little aroma. Slightly, pleasantly oily. Somewhere between an IPA and a DIPA.

From tap at Brewery. Wow! The last beer I had at the brewery and the best. Amber with a haze and sticky head. Aroma was malt and fruity hops. Taste was caramel, bread, fruity hops and bitter finish. The ABV was hidden well.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Originally reviewed: 4/25/09. Pours a cloudy deep gold with a nice frothy white head on top. Great retention and nice sticky lacing rings. Smells of deep pine scents and flowers. Very nice.
Mouthfeel is alot thinner than I would like. Pretty watery. Flavor is very muted hop bitterness. Some citrus in there. This is more like an APA in my mind. The only thing that makes this a double is ABV, and even that is fairly absent. Not bad, but have had better

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Opaque and murky chestnut, with a small but firm head. The aroma is somewhat mellow, and the beer I easy-drinking. Mild citrus and some musty grassiness. (#4429, 1/1/2012)

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very slightly hazy copper pour topped with an ivory quickly fading head. Nice hop aroma of pine and citrus with a hint of licorice and alcohol. Strong raisin flavor from the malt (common but I don’t care for raisin flavors very much ... especially in an IPA/2xIPA). Citrus flavor underneath. Not as much bitterness as I expected (a bit more would be better in my opinion). Medium-full bodied with medium carbonation. Not bad but a bit too much raisin for my taste that likely biased my review.

Good beer. Quite a bit of malt sweetness but balance with a lot of bitterness not much caramel which works.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Deep orange with spotty white suds. Floral, tropical fruit nose with big malty caramel backbone. Flavor is sharply bitter and leaves the mouth very dry. A little too heavy, messy and boozy for me.
