3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: Hazy amber to brown leaning body with a foamy dense light tan head.
Aroma: Slightly orange and grapefruit with biscuit, caramel and general malt sweetness. It smells like an American Barleywine that’s sat too long.
Taste: A little bit better on the taste, still malty and barleywine esque. Biscuit goes through with hints of caramel and orange/grapefruit. Bitterness is mild.
Palate: Full-bodied, mildly carbonated.
Overall: Not bad or offensive, but certainly nothing I would recommend to a customer. It’s a generic imperial IPA that borders on either being too old or too malty. Not bad, but not good.

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.

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.
