Growler - Very clear golden color which a nice white head. Not a perceptible smell at all, very light on the nose. Weird combo of sweet and bitter, neither is very strong. Palate is very mild, taste doesn’t linger and it doesn’t feel thick, quite thin actually. Very mild all around, I was hoping for more flavor from this double IPA.

22 oz. bottle from Total Wine, Chesapeake, VA. Anticipated pour of dark orange with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of grapefruit rind, tangerine, and wet grass. Nice citrusy hop bitterness is met with a sturdy caramel malt backbone. Finish is rather sweet for a DIPA. Nicely done.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2015 From a 650ml bottle on 22/12/2015 (early Xmas present from my lovely spouse). Pours a deep golden with a medium head. The nose is quite subdued for a DIPA and does not scream hops - just some light fruit a hint of alcohol. The flavour is pretty basic and straight forward, with sweet malts (caramel and biscuit) and some sweet citrus fruit. There’s some bitterness in there but it comes across a bit stale and lacking the character of a typical hop bomb, Has a reasonably full body and mild carbonation. Overall, this is very disappointing. I could name a raft of standard IPAs that give this an absolute arse kicking in terms of hop profile.
