4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Lucky Pie, Denver, CO. Copper colored pour with a creamy off-white head. Light floral hop aroma. The taste is a pleasant blend of tangerine and pineapple. The finish is clean with lingering citrus and little in the way of bitterness. Very nicely done!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The beer pours decently with a nice hazy straw color that passes some light through it, has a somewhat mild white head and leaves little lacing on the glass. The smell is great with a nice citrus hoppy smell that doesnt overpower you like most IPAs do (let alone a DIPA). The taste is amazing with a definite citrus hoppy flavor, but it doesnt burn you out or overwhlem you, instead it starts out mild citrusy then slows changes to a resin flavor, then the hoppiness builds onto the back end. I had my wife try this and she said "This would be a great IPA for people who donít like IPAs (she didnt know it was a DIPA). The mouthfeel is great as the is leaves you with a somewhat hoppy dryness and the beer was carbonated okay. Overall, one of the best DIPAs I have ever had...it didnt burn me out or overwhlem me with hoppiness (and I love hops). A great Beer.

Bottle, poured a nice golden colar with a finger of white head. Awesome fruit overtones with a hoppy background. Tastes closer to a barleywine then your typical Imperial IPAís. One of my favorites for sure. The expectation of a great DIPA is always met with this beer.

Thanks to tectactoe for splitting. I feel like this one might be a little overrated. Tasted a little cheap.

Pours a cloudy pale orange with a huge white head. Head leaves an intricate lacing. Aroma is light hoppy and floral. Smells and tastes a few months past its prime. Slight bitter taste with a clean finish. Oily mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

(bottle) pours a slightly hazy golden colour with a frothy white head. aroma of heavy peaches, caramel, powdered sugar, herbal hops and some sugar icing. flavour is mostly the same, quite sweet, with notes of candied sugar, light tropical fruit and some alcohol in the light-bitter finish. medium to heavy-bodied with soft carbonation.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft at taproom. Pours golden with a thick white head. Leaves a lot of lacing. Smells like stank feet. Very hoppy on the tongue without me being able to identify the flavor. Iím not getting a lot of citrus. Finishes clean and hides its alcohol well. Iím not exactly dying to have another of these.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light amber, slightly hazy with small creamy head. Mild hoppiness in taste and aroma with some evidence of higher alcohol content. Not as rich and full as some other double IPAs Iíve tried. Good, but not great.
