3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nose has a soft hoppy profile with citrus and floral notes. A surprising initial hit of bubble gum as well! This is a very smooth, integrated and subtle double IPA. The hop profile is tasty but understated with no one hop taste element standing out. Subtle malts as well. A nice enough drink, but I canít find the 9.1% abv or 103 IBUs anywhere.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slim can poured into a snifter. Aroma not overpowering, some pine backed up by a mixture of floral and fruity, that I wish were more upfront because it is a rather appealing smell. Balanced IIPA taste, nothing comes out and whacks you on the palate on its own. Slightly sticky palate, malt backbone on the dry side of the middle. Overall a pretty good beer, drinks rather easy for a IIPA. Not a showstopper, but pretty good.

Itís a good beer but a standard beer (what an age we live in!) The flavor and hop character are nothing to write home about. I prefer their Bengal by a long shot.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour from can. Nice orange color with good white head. Aroma is lots of pine and hop resin - of course. Taste is the same, resin, pine, hops. Light bodied, alcohol is well hidden. Nice beer.
