3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A: The beer pours amber in color with a finger or so of off-white head.
S: Very sweet. Lots of caramel and toffee, brown sugar, and some toasted bread as well. Pine and floral hops with a bit of citrus and grass to it, too. Maybe a hint booze.
T: Quite sweet on the palate. Caramel, brown sugar, and toffee are the primary flavors. Some citrus hops (grapefruit), with a decent amount of bitterness which helps to subdue a bit of the sweetness.
M: Medium to full in body with a medium level of carbonation.
O: Far too sweet for what I look for in a double IPA.

Bottle shared at CPK in London. Thanks to Bruce. Pours clear copper with a creamy white ead. Quite a sweet IPA, plenty of ripe fruits, a bit of caramel, bred, pine and melon. Medium to full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Well and resinous to finish, lots of pine, plenty of caramel and bread sweetness. Pretty simplistic and quite sweet.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle… Mostly clear, dirty orange ale with a small, creamy, white head. Great retention. The nose is a tropical and citrus fruit medley – pineapple, mango and grapefruit are front-and-center here. Full-bodied with a thin mouthfeel and stinging carbonation. Caramel and toffee malts are rich and flavorful, but they take a back seat to a bounty of fruity, juicy, bitter hops. Finishes grapefruity, bitter, and then dry. Bottle courtesy of BgThang!
