3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bottle poured into a tulip glass. Pours bright golden yellow with medium head, although quite a bit of sediment as the last sip poured much darker, more of a golden amber. Aroma is sharp piney hops with a bit of sweetness in the background. Taste is sweet thick caramel malt followed immediately by big bitter hops. Nice pine and citrus notes. Quite strong tasting for such a (relatively) low abv. Not as balanced as some of the better DIPAs, but solid. Reasonably priced too.

Bottle - Light orange in color with a good head and lacing. Has a real bizarre taste and after taste. Has a piney hop and bread taste up front and the back end seems more like sour milk. A few sips was enough for me.

Poured from 1 pint 6 fl oz bottle. Clear gold with white head. Aroma of sweet biscuity malt and musty funk with subtle hops. Very much the same taste with the hops coming out a bit more at the end.

Hazy gold LOTS of white head AND lace. Unfiltered. Wheat, lemon, hop, funk, dirty laundry aroma. Taste is very hoppy. Simcoe. Flavor is thin bodied, bitter and chewable. There’s still lace ALL over my Weyerbacher glass.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy orangish gold with a decent head and aromas of resin and dankness. Flavor is mostly based around this combination over a honey sweet malt presence. A very solid beer in spite of not really blowing my hair back with a new take on the style.

Hops dominate, as expected. Nice amber body with creamy head. Hops are smooth, piney, some buttery taste. Dry bitter finish.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance had a slightly hazy semi orange/somewhat amber colored body with yellow highlights to help to make it fairly clear, thin white half finger foamy head that dies immediately leaving some adequate foamy sticky lacing in its wake.
The smell had some coconut in the beginning (not sure where I’m gettin’ that, but that’s what I truly got) and after it warms a bit toasted piney caramel plays in my nose.
The taste was somewhat bitter but still sweet through the malty bill that comes through, sticky caramel aftertaste, dry caramel finish.
On the palate, it sat about a medium in body, fairly sessionable - pretty much as any DIPA could be, carbonated very well for the style.
Overall, I say a pretty well done DIPA from No-Li, shout out to Breeze - In for gettin’ this in growler fills.

Good retention and good lacing. Smells of grapefruit, sweet malt, hop resin and lemon. Tastes of hop resin, grapefruit and pine. Light bitter finish.

I love IPAs. Especially doubles. This is BY FAR the best double IPA that I’ve ever had. Light malt body. Riddled with citrusy notes and a grapefruit flavor.

Bottle pour dark gold. Nose citrus hop up front, some dank hop, then late in aroma a very sweet powdery malt, almost like powdered donuts. Taste bitter up front, followed by dank and alcohol. Late palate vague sweetness. Astringnet bitter finish.
