4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draft at Good Beer. Rich, floral IIPA aroma. Full-flavored and muy hoppy, with good balance and lots of malt. Really good!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle thanks to RamyG4. Pours a hazy copper color with a large froth of orangy, white foam. Decent lacing. The aroma has notes of oranges, grass, and other floral notes. The taste is earthily bitter and dry. Like a mouthfull of dirt. Sort of sweet toward the backend. Sticky mouthfeel. This is a nice, calm Double IPA. It would make for a good introductory beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Mari’s. Pours hazy orange with an obscene amount of off-white head that leaves tons of sticky lacing. The aroma is pine forward but there is a little bit of citrus in the back end. Taste is bitter up front with a big grapefruit sweetness on the finish.. there is some lingering dryness from the hop bite. The palate is a little sticky for a DIPA but definitely drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Not a terribly exciting of balanced DIPA. Citrus fruit and grass aroma. Pours a hazy dark orange almost copper. Pretty heavy mouth feel from both malt notes and alcohol. Lots of earthy hop character and a somewhat lasting bitter finish. Nothing remarkable.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a cloudy deep amber with a white head consisting of fine bubbles. Aroma is Piney hops, caramel malts. Taste is bitter like a pill, muddled with unsavory malts and random garbage. This beer is almost worthless. Almost. Scroll past weak shit like this.

Pours amber with a white head. Smells of citrus, some earthy hints, some perfumy floral undertones. Tastes bitter with an underlying sticky sweetness to it. Finishes peppery with some floral notes. Decent.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Beer pours brownish gold with medium head retention. Aroma is rather flat for a double IPA. Taste is hoppy, but more bitter than spicy; a heavy malt taste is a bit too much for my palate. Mouthfeel is generally smooth. Bitter finish. This one could be quite a bit better.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared by matt9875.
The beer appears a slightly hazy shade of orange with a moderate head and fair lacing. The aroma is a balance of malt and hops, which I always find disappointing in a DIPA. For what it is, the beer tastes OK. If it was hoppier, I’d be happier, nawmsayin? The feel is pretty good, with the alcohol content disguised fairly well. The beer finishes bitter with a trace of alcohol. Overall, an OK beer, but nowhere near the elites of the style.
