3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A nice, highly hopped double IPA. Appearance/palate thin for a double IPA. Alcohol presence is a bit over-the-top, but it is a double IPA, so what do I expect? There are other IPA competitors out there who can top this for flavor, but if I had it on a deserted island I would not turn away from the Double D (or maybe 2 for balance).

20100515 Sampled at PilsnerPeter’s 2nd Annual Spring Gathering. Shortbread and citrus, pretty sweet stuff, sticky palate, thick. Sweetness a bit much for me even among the many big stouts of the day. Tropical and citrus hops linger. Coating.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured into a pint glass it produced a finger worth of white head that lasted.
The body of the brew was a cloudy burned orange in color.
The aroma was a little sweet for a DIPA the malts were a little dominant. The hops did show up in there as well but a little subdued for the style. The flavor is following the nose starting off sweet and finishing dry with hop bitterness. It had a medium feel to it in my mouth and good carbonation.
Not a bad DIPA but not my favorite. I did finish the bomber by myself with no problem. I looked for a date on the bottle; I think it might be a bit old but no way to tell for sure with out a date

Growler poured into a trappist glass produced an amber body with thick tan head. This is one of the best IPAs I’ve tasted. Smooth with flavors of pineapple and orange with a nice hoppy finish. Very well balanced and very enjoyable.

Thanks to thirdeye11 for sharing this bottle.
Pours slightly cloudy orange/yellow with a minimal white head. The aroma is very hoppy, with lots of citrus and orange notes as well as some piney resin. The flavor is lots of pine, but not too much bitterness. Very drinkable, medium mouthfeel.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle:   Orangish in color, very vibrant, moderate foamy off-white head, somewhat sticky lacing.   Sweet citrusy nose, hops are strong, a little floral.   Smooth citrus based flavors, a bit of rind but its not astringent.
Hops are present, but not biting.   A little bit of floral as well.   This is quite robust, but as a IIPA not as malty as I would have liked.   Still, as an IPA this one is really really good.   Good nose, flavor,
without being overly bitter or astringent.   Even has a bit more sweetness than most.   I’d call it a 1½ IPA tho, and a good one at that.   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   Could stand to be a bit thicker/maltier
for an IIPA, but its a big IPA otherwise.   Clean finish, lingering citrus rind, somewhat sweetened, and a good does of hops.   This was really tasty stuff.   Many many thanks Jason for the bottles!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle. Pours a reddish mahogany colored body with a creamy, finger-width, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves lots of lacing. Aroma is sweeter fruit hops with a light caramel balance. Peaches, oranges, and tangerines along with a moderate earth and some floral, perfume pines. Flavor is sweet fruit pines up front with lots of juicy tangerines. A light resin, mixture of earth and florals, orange, peach, grapefruit, and a bit of a strawberry caramel malt make up most of the flavor. Finishes dry with just a light resin and lots of moderate, piney and floral bitterness. Just a touch of alcohol heat comes in as well. Lingers for a long duration after a medium body and mild carbonation. Overall, a heavily hopped and tasty DIPA. Not very complex at all, but I like the sweetness of the fruits and high level of bitterness. A very light malt taste keeps this in check and allows for the hops to take center state. Hard to complain about this one.
