4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
This beer is delicious. Buying beer out at a bar, which I do too often, continuously reminds me that although my strangely functioning human brain considers a thirteen dollar pitcher a good deal, I should be shelling out ten bucks for a four pack of something like this brew. The aroma is intense, which is a quality I prefer in IPAs. It smells like a Wisconsin pine forrest. Awesome. The beer looks like a good beer should, which is one of these rating qualities I’ve never really understood. Fine. Tastes delicious. Well balanced between the hops and the malts, which is my own personal number one requirement for a decent ipa. Also high alcohol but I can’t taste it. Wonderful. Palate is slightly intense on the carbonation front, but that is a personal quibble that I can let go of I this case. YUM.

From the Trembling Madness in York and from the bottle. Wow, I do love a Citrusy, Hoppy, Fruity IPA but this is absolutely full of flavour. Possibly the hoppiest I have tried.

One of my favorite double IPA’s. Not too strong for a 9.3 ABV. Bit of a fruity flavor and very smooth. You will like it!

Bottle at home, pours a nice clean cloudy golden amber. Solid, white, sticky head. Strong scent of pine, fruit, fresh hops. Very nice oily, piney, resinous taste. Well balanced and smooth down the throat. Very very good stuff!
