4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle into a sierra nevada snifter. best 10.4 Ive ever had,no doubt. Pours a brilliant orange red amber combo with golden hues in the background. Head is maintained around the glass but holds steady. Taste is pretty much a torpedo x2, heavnly hoppy, tastefully delicilious, fun going down and the hop bite withholds after everything, Tangy, juicy hops are profound. I dont get the brewed just yesterdya feel like the stones enjoy by, but this is still legit and compelling enough to resonate a profound rating. still cant beleive its 10.4, what? glad i found this one randomly in a random western mass packy that shouldnt have even been offering it, and at 9.99 a 4 pack, i think i lucked out. classic brew right here.

Very big, well balanced DIPA. A little light on the nose but well balanced taste with a bit of a thick finish on the mouthfeel.

I’m not a hop head, but I appreciate a well balanced IPA. This isn’t really that. Leaves an astringency on the tongue that means you need to drink as much water as beer.

Pours a brilliant copper with a lasting head with lovely lace. Aroma is light resinous hops, fresh lumber, light sweetness. Astringent, resinous, hit-you-over-the-head bitterness. Wow! Crisp palate with good carbonation. Nit exactly balanced, but what a ride!

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
The man at the store said this was THE best double ipa in existence... With words like that I couldn’t just NOT get it...
This is a great beer bitter as heck but balanced with a nice full body and a a sweetness that makes it extremely drinkable.
It’s a little boozy, if I correctly understand the meaning of that word... It tastes extremely alcoholic.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
355 ml bottle. Pours a highly sediment-filled orange amber with a white head. Aroma is resin, grapefruit. Flavor is citrus (lime, grapefruit). Finish is loads of bitterness - citrusy to death, as in lime, lemon, grapefruit and sour candies. Medium body, sticky, resinous mouthfeel. Average carbonation. Flat-on-your-ass double IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light copper pour with a thick white head. Aroma is caramel, toffee, pine, grapefruit - sweet and a bit boozy. Full bodied. Flavour is caramel and herbal hop notes followed by pine and citrus bitterness. A lingering bitterness with hints of anise and some sweetness, with the alcohol apparent. Drank quite warm. Good, but I’m a little underwhelmed.
