This dipa is just amazing! The aroma and appearance is very deceiving. Fell in love with the first sip. Loving the balance of the hops and alcohol. Kind of bummed I only have 1 bottle.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appearance: Deep amber color, slightly hazy, nice head retention.
Aroma: Hoppy with tropical fruits like mango and papaya, some peach as well.
Taste: Follows the nose, very fruity and juicy, then the bitterness from the hops last for a long time.
Palate: Medium mouthfeel, average carbonation.
It doesn’t live up to the hype imho (maybe I had a bad can) but a good one anyway.

Can, unfortunately 3 months old. Aroma is mostly caramel and small notes of mango. Taste is bitter and dry, light sweet. Flavor of caramel and resin.

16 oz. can, consumed on 10-11-16. Pours a clear, dark bronze with a small to moderate amount of cream to beige-colored head. Mild to moderate effervescence. Good, long-lasting lacing. I’m not a huge fan of the color, and it’s an ordinary appearance for the style aside from the above-average lacing. A bit of haze in the later pour and extra, creamier head elevates the appearance. Some cloudiness as well. Apricot, grapefruit, and dust scents. Some pine. Fresh smell. Grapefruit and pine flavors. Boozy in a bad way. Funky finish. Dry, lightly chemical aftertaste reminds me of grapefruit rind. Full body. Smooth in the palate. Good palate effects. Fruitier in aroma and flavor than I would prefer. Normally I consider 8% ABV the sweet spot for IPAs / double IPAs, but this one comes across as boozier and fuller than the ABV suggests, and the hops mix does little for me. It’s far from a bad beer, but it’s also far from an outstanding one. I was expecting better given the hype on this one.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Decent, well balanced, but bit lacking in hop kick, maybe faded away. Some floral aspect, ripe fruitiness, some peach, light grapefruit. Light sweetness with moderate to light bitterness.
Decent, but nothing to remember

Can pour at home, 3ed time having this in the last month, once in Chicago and a can when I got back. Small cloudy golden pour, nice hop aroma, this is a perfect balance of hops and citrus small grapefruit bite. This is a awesome double ipa.
