22 oz. bomber bottled gifted by my neighbor after a Vermont ski trip. Pours an unfiltered burnt orange complexion with thick fluffy head and lots of floaties. Clean pine aroma. Bitter hop flavor with pine. Intended as a hop punch in the palate.

Decent IPA. Nothing special, was hoping for more of a bite to it that wasn’t there. Possibly an old bottle? Was expecting much better, slightly disappointed.

A golden amber DIPA with a thin lacing light mocha head. In aroma, nice biscuit malt with good floral hops, citrus pulp, herbaceous character, very nice. In mouth, a smooth biscuit malt with good floral hops, grapefruit, pungent and piney, very nice.

Very smooth for a dipa, nice aroma and the simcoe hops give it a refreshing taste with a slightly dry bitterness at the end. I recommend this to anyone who enjoys a fine "Vermont" made double IPA.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz. bottle from the Brewery about 2 weeks ago. Nose is a very pleasant mix of citrus fruit and toasted caramel malt. Flavor is balanced when cold. As it was the bitterness really takes over. Flavors of Caramel malt, grapefruit pith, mango and sugar notes. The resin comes out when it’s warm. Also Alcohol is noticeable in the finish. I liked it when it was chilled, as it warmed it became a bit harsh. Well; I will say it lives up to the “Extreme” bitterness label.

Pours burnt orange with a white head. Aroma is pine, citrus, earthy and a touch of caramel. Taste is moderate bitter throughout with some light sweetening. Medium bodied, crisp drying finish, alcohol hidden well. Drinks easy.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bottle pours a clear orange with some frothy, lacing, white head. Soapy nose, fairly pungent hops, grapefruit zest, lemon zest, pine needles. Flavor is malty, some honey, some agave syrup, then loads of sticky hops, pine, lemon, grapefruit, orange candied. Full, sticky finish. A bit sloppy, but pretty good overall.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Out of the bomber and into my snifter, it poured a beautiful hazy orange and left the same color body. A half centimeter white foamy head concaves gently into the body. The smell had rich fruity notes up front with hops backing it up very strong. Malts were more subdued. The taste was pretty much the same. The palate was about a medium with some slight sharpness on the tongue. At 8% for the ABV, the alcohol was fairly hidden well which lead to fairly sessionable beer. Overall, this would be a hop forward double IPA, I liked it for the most part, but probably won’t seek it out again.
