Color is dark hazy orange. Thin head. Aroma bitter orange zest. Light zest bitter beer. Bottle was way too old. Almost soapy. If you like buying orange/lemon peels get this. Not happy. I wish I had a fresher beer.

Old bottle from ABC. Pours clouudy light orange with tiny white head. Strong lemon and orange zest aroma with some caramel candy malt. Bit of wet dog. Flavor follows aroma exactly. Lots of orange peel. Not much hops left here. Medium mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Meh.

22 oz bottle - This beer poured a very nice orange-gold color with a healthy sized almost white head. Excellent color. The aroma was almost non-existent. Good malt flavor, light but noticeable. The residual hop bitterness is pleasant on the tongue. Dry hopping was evident to me in the light resin-like texture on the tongue, but no very strong, expected hop flavor and aroma from this beer.
The bottle I got must have been older. I donít think they can ship this beer fast enough. The shop I got it from said they just got them in and I trust them on that. I have heard other people report similar experiences with the aroma. Overall itís a tasty beer, but not really what Iím looking for in an DIPA.

Looks better than it tastes. Nice coppery color with a foamy head and good lacing. Fairly mild aroma slightly sweet and earthy. Taste is not balanced. Creamy upfront with an unripe grapefruit finish. Bitter and sour.

Bottle, shared with my wife. Light orange-gold, medium off white head. Aroma is bitter grapefruit rind with herbal undertones. Heavy hopped palate, very bitter without a lot of complexity,and taking on a bit of a medicinal quality that Iím not crazy about. Sweet caramel malt structure helps a little, but this beer just didnít shine for me. Just okay.

Bottle. Pint. Aroma is mostly of hops and malt. Not many other smells come through. Poured a hazy light orange. Thin head and mild lacing. Taste was rather disappointing for a double IPA. Alcohol comes through and the hops are well done. But the malts fall flat and thereís really not much other body to this beer. Certainly not a bad beer, but nothing to write home about.

650 mL bottle purchased from town for $6.99 exactly. I used the Smuttynose pint I got at Smuttyís promotional tap takeover in Hampton. Its pour is a amber golden with which sustained a creamy eggshell one and a half fingers head. Smells of soil, mushrooms, hops, and caramelized onions. Taste of vegetable hops, saltwater, seaweed, cucumber, sage, shiitake mushrooms, and vitamins. Yeast, hay, clementine, hop pellets, salt and heat by swallow. Decent by much too salty without much in regards to its malt usage.

Not a fan of beer that has a high alcohol rating but it is nice and smooth, not dry and hoppy. Definitely buy again.

Might have had an older bottle but I thought this was pretty weak for a double IPA. The taste was pretty good but the bite just wasnít there. Definitely could have been an older bottle from what a friend said about the store.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
22oz bottle. This beer somewhat sucked, I can't remember where I bought it but I had high hopped for it. It poured alar griff-white frothy head atop a orange body. Nose was decent of pine hops. Flavour is where the doors fell off - I encountered an alkaline astringency through the front, cream and overly citrus orange hop finish. It was like chalky milky marmalade lemon shake. For a double IPA I would have expected a stronger malt base,yet this was thin and a mild detergent cleaner finish. Disappointing.
