From a 12 oz bottle. Not much aroma and not too bitter or malty. Did a side by side wit Pliny the Elder and Pliny only beat it in aroma and a few IBUs. Excellent balanced citrusy flavor without any bitter aftertaste. Very balanced. Just a great DIPA.

12oz bottle. Pours a good clear golden orange but thin head...could use a little more carbonation. Nice aroma of bitter grapefruit and light malty goodness. Great smooth mouthfeel and the 8% ABV is well hidden. Love the balance of intense citrus floral hop and lightly sweet malt. Well made and easy drinking for a DIPA.

Very good DBL IPA, dark golden colour, it looks like a great beer and is one, no dull flavours here, step up from their total domination. well balanced

Struck me as a ’malty’ rather than a ’hoppy’ double IPA. Either way, the body of this brew totally buries it’s strength - but in a sweet rather than bitter way.

Bomber. Good citrus hop aroma with notes of tropical fruit. Pours clear amber with a large, soapy off white head with good retention and some lacing. Good citrus and tropical fruit hop flavor to start. Finishes dry with some pine resiny hop bitterness. Good IPA.

Deep gold color with a dense, white frothy head. Nice citrus aroma. Earthy citrusy hop flavors with a full bodied, malty back drop. Nice DIPA!

Pours a clear Golden honey color with a thick off white head. Aroma has nice grapefruit, citrus rind and herbal/grassy notes...great lacing and retention. Flavor is more toward the herbal/grassy side...bitter and earthy with a hint of scallion and some underlying honeydew. Mouthfeel is light and silky with a dry and clean herbal/earthy/rindy finish.

Bomber. Pour: clear copper amber with a pillowy off white head. Aroma: sweet stone fruit and citrus and malt. Taste: caramel, pineapple citrus and straw; there’s a smooth creaminess which fades to a dry slightly bitter feel on the palate. A nice drinker!

Saw this a few times at my local shell station. Finally picked one up after seeing the ratebeer rating used as a selling point. Pours amber in color with about half an inch of white head. Tastes of malt and carmel with a short booze finish. Somewhat creamier mouthfeel than most double IPAs. Not a bad beer at all.

Bottle. Go Ravens. Nice rustic visuals, deep amber, solid head retention. Thickly malty, the slightly higher alcohol is evident in a little bit of a burn. But easy to drink, and relatively easy going overall. (#5913, 1/3/2014)
