3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at the brewery. Deep golden with off white head. Hop forward aroma gets lost in the palate where inadequate malt backbone allows the alcohol to take over...

1.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Slight BO smell in there. Clear pale yellow from a tap. Flat and watery but yet a very bitter drink. Probably could be used as cleaning fluid, a little volatile onthe palate. Except for the lack of viscosity, this stuff is quite on style for a double IPA.

Medium to full bodied with moderate carbonation, assertive bitterenss, and a big slightly sweet finish.

Clearly one of the best beers for the bang. Also clearly better on draught. If you must drink from the bottle, be sure to pour into a snifter or other similar large-rimmed glass to get the full-on effect. This continues to be one of the brewery’s best sellers.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from bottle into a pint glass.
Appearance - a nice amber/copper color with a around a 1/2 inch head which persisted upon pouring.
Smell - Initially hit with citrus hop followed shortly by piney which then overwhelms the nose.
Taste - A little more subtle then would be expected in hop flavor then would be expected for the strength of the brew, but a nice balance of hop and malt makes it easy drinking.
Mouthfeel - Medium carbonation again lends to easy drinkable. The body is rather medium in demeanor - thick enough to slow you down for the high abv.
Overall - A good brew worth the experience, although a more I would typically choose an IPA with a bit more hoppiness to match the high abv of the beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The beer pours great with a nice amber color to it, a one finger off white head, and decent lacing on the glass. The smell is decent with the beer had a resin, piney nose. The beer tastes decent with a great smooth piney flavor followed by a smooth mild malty taste. The mouthfeel is great with a nice dry, mildly bitterness and the beer is well carbonated. Overall, a decent Double IPA with a nice smooth blend to it, recommended.
