3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Deep orange tinted and light copper brew. A wispy thin white head. Notes of caramel and peanuts are up front in the nose. There is a bit of citrus, but it is muted. Tastes of orange zest mix with some bread crust. There is also some peanut shells and ashtray in the finish. A decent IIPA, but a bit muddled without any bright hops character. Middle of the road for a double IPA.

Tasted from bottle. Pours a hazy gold with white head. Aroma of citrus, lemon and caramel. Taste is moderate to heavily bitter with mild sweetness. Would like a little better balance. Flavors of caramel, toffee, citrus fruit, grass. Overall an average imperial IPA.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a 22oz bomber into a duvel glass.
Aroma - nice unique aroma. Almost like a jolly rancher.
Appearance - hazy golden pour, nice.
Taste - Heavy body, which makes sense for a 9%.
Palate - think coating of the tongue
Overall - I think this beer fresh is good. I wouldn’t let this beer sit long - even though 9%, I also think it wouldn’t do good at room temperature either.

On tap at New Bohemia. Pours a clear gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges and laces. Aroma has earthy citrus with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges and laces nicely. Flavor is full of citrus with a bit of earthy grass and a sweet grain backbone.

This one tasted too much like mashed mangos with alcohol. I’ve had much better tasting and drinkable double IPAs. Price is good though for a double.

Pours a hazy amber with a small white head and lots of white particles. Aroma of honey, floral, citrus, and sweet malts. Taste is grapefruit, lemon zest, floral, light honey, sweet malts, and very bitter. The bitterness lasts throughout and finishes the same way. Body was medium to full.
