3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Best by 3-14. Bottle conditoned Hazy dirty orange,some head fluffy receding to a white cape with spotty lace. Toasted malt aroma with pine light spicey,some herbal, ripe fruit. Has same in taste but a big strong toast malt with big piney grassy grapefruit bitter. Smooth rich toasty dry malt back bone by a big bitter, some dryness & a tinge of alchohol. Its pretty in your face but the hop profile maybe aged/dated some, although I like the hop choices. Iím shure if this were fresh or properly stored cold and shortly consumed that it would be a big knockout ipa for shures.

On tap at Yogi's in Bloomington. Huge hops hit you as soon as you taste this beer. Very citrusy and hoppy from start to finish. Nice lacing on the glass, and a crisp clean finish. One of the more powerful/better double IPA's.

3.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy yellow with large off white head. Nose is pine, grass, pineapple mango. Body is medium initial fruity sweetness with pineapple juice, quickly going into a pine bitterness finish, the bitterness is light on the tongue receding quickly. Could use a bit more carbonation to level things off, great ipa, but needs a little more balance.

Pours a nice light golden colour with full frothy head. Aromas of pine, spice, grapefruit zest, grass, & celery are all amplified in the taste, with a slight saltiness. Very nice palate, smooth & medium bodied. Finish is very grassy with pleasant lingering bitterness. Delicious and enjoyable!

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
FROM NOTES: July 3, í12
Poured on tap into a pint glass at Smuttynose Brewery.
A: Sweet fruity tones and cookies initially that give way to a more earthy smell.
A: Pours a golden hazed color with a one-finger width off-white head that dissolves quickly leaving small lacings on the glass. Almost no sign of carbonation.
T: Sweet mango up front, then grapefruit and finally warming alcohol. Itís balancing on the verge of being to strong in alcohol but manages to pull it off. Lasting grapefruit notes.
P: A bit oily in texture. The alcohol is warming just about perfect. Low to medium carbonation.
O: Apart from the nose, which I find a bit uneven, this is a good beer and worth a try.
