3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Cloudy, deep amber body. Off-white, frothy head. Inviting citrus aroma of orange juice, passion fruit, cotton candy, toasted grain. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, soft carbonation. A bit unclean in the mouth with remnants of raw grain in the finish. Balance tips toward the sweet side, especially for a double IPA. This is close with a promising aroma, but the flavor doesn’t quite follow through.

tap at Black Acre brewpub last fall - Pours lightly hazy orange with a lasting off-white head that laces well. It has a big orange and grapefruit aroma. The flavor is also full of citrus, especially oranges, with strong, tasty bitterness that lingers pleasantly on the palate. Very good.
