3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at the Brewpub in Greensboro 3/25/06: Hazy amber body with a medium white head, nicely lasting and sticking to the glass. The aroma is fresh, juicy hops, and plenty of citrus scents. The taste is bitter, juicy hops, citrus, and an interesting yeast character that tastes exactly like the salty/fruity/light butter character found in both Legend and Pizza Port beers. Medium bodied, medium carbonated, finishes with bitter citrus hops and some of that fruity yeast.

Enjoyed with some afternoon football this past weekend thanks to Beerbill. Nice copper colored brew with a head so big I thought it was infected. Not so thankfully. Citrus hop aroma with a smidge of resinous presence and a lightly orange like sweet malt. Resinous hops are dominant in the flavor thought some lemon like presence sneaks up in the end. Touches of grain. A nicely bitter brew with enough body that it becomes quite drinkable. Medium body with a dry mouth feel. Enjoyed it.

On draft at the brewpub . Nice looking light gold with a moderate white head. Hoppy pine and citrus aroma over a light brown sugar background. Medium body and carbonation, pretty clean on the palate. Bitterness takes center stage, although there is a pretty substantial caramel malty background that prevents thing from getting out of hand. A very nice double IPA.

This is a nice brew. Pours out a deep orange color with a nice white head. Aroma is very hoppy and citrusy. Flavor was nice, but not nearly as bitter as i had hoped for. Over all not a bad brew at all. Something I will have again. Also after 6 pints of this stuff, youll be drunk. I certainly was.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle via Secret Santa Summer 2009-Pours a hazy orange with a huge dense beige head. Nose is subdued but orange and sweet resiny hops. Starts sweet and ends bittersweet. In the middle are some fruity juicy hops..tangarine, pineapple, orange, a liitle grapefruit and a bit of pine. Also some crystal malts are evident. Anti dry finish....but not overly sweet...
Body is full and she is full of sticky resin. Carbonation is medium. A pretty tasty above average IIPA. Oh, and this reminds me a little of Pizza Port Wipeout...which is a good thing to be reminded of!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2009 12oz bottle thanks to jrob21. Pours a cloudy amber with a thin, off-white head. Nose is very powerful citrus. Taste was same as smell. Mouthfeel was medium-thin with a strong, mouth tingle from the hops and a very bitter finish. Out of balance in a hop-forward way, but thatís ok for this hop-head. Loved it.

Uh oh, a lost rating. Had this one a while back, forgot to rate it, although I swear I remember writing it. Must not have hit submit. Not a particularly great DIPA. Ah 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

bottle courtesy of emacgee, thank you. pours a deep but crisp amber with a dense and creamy off white head that leaves some lacing and spotting. the aroma and taste have a ton of sweet biscuity crystaly malts, very malty iipa, but i really like it since its a great malt profile. its still highly hopped, and the hop profile is equally as balanced. overall a nice brew, very drinkable, though more like an asa to me.

12oz. bottle, with thanks to brentk56 for the great bonus. Pours a clear golden orange with a huge and lasting off-white head that leaves big chunks of lace. Aroma is floral, citrus and peel, a little pine and light caramel. Flavor is juicy, with a nice blend of floral, crisp fresh citrus and caramel. Drinks more like an IPA than a Double; good stuff either way. Thanks again Brent!
