3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Somewhat comparable to Two Hearted, but with more alcohol, a little less sugar, a little less hops, and a little thinner palate. Good hop flavor, with a bread/cracker malt flavor as well. Very well hopped.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a clear orange struck gold with a medium large creamy white head that falls off quickly. Big lemon and citrus, a hint of alcohol behind some large grass hop aromas. Medium bodied, nice earthy character, a good amount of hops bleed through. Finishes with some slowly building grapefruit and light quinine bitterness and a touch of sweetness. Tasty

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours an orangeish gold. Hardcore pine in both the scent and taste. Grapefruit/citrus too. Easy to drink, has a sort of honey background, a soothing taste. Not quite the hop bite I was expecting, sweeter than most IPA/DIPA. Not bad for the price though.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle from Tournament Liquors. Bright orange pour with a fluffy white head, beautiful lacing. Hoppy citrus aromas with more of the same in flavor, flavor has a bit of a hoppy bite which stays around in the finish. Very easy drinking for a double IPA.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle - Didnt seem like a double. It was more of a 1 and a half. I felt like it was lacking flavor. I’d say the companies description was right on.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted from a 12oz bottle. Pours amber orange with a thin white head that quickly recedes to lace. The nose has some malts, but it is mostly just hoppy with a bit of lemon. The hops aroma reminds me of marijuana. The flavors are just as one-dimensional with light malt flavor and strong hops. It is not as bitter as many double IPAs I have had, and I enjoy it for that. On the palate, the body is medium and slightly oily. The carbonation is average, and the finish is medium with hops bitterness. The alcohol is a little out of balance, but other than that this beer is quite nice.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Not bad, very servicable. Bottle started to foam over after opening. Poured with a nice foamy froth tan head and a bit of lace. Color is a hazy medium amber with a little hazy. Aroma is malty coffee cocoa a bit roast and on the milder side. Ditto flavor; Body is ok ditto carbonation. Finish is good; easy.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours golden amber with an off white head. Nice piny citric hoppy aroma with pale malts and a light sweetness. The flavor is well balanced, especially for a Southern Tier made DIPA. Light piny notes, some citrus, a light sweetness, and some pale malty hints. Nowhere near as sweet as I remember their other DIPA’s being. Very drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Clear gold, 2cm frothy head. Smells like UnEarthly, less boozy - citrus bitterness and moderate alcohol, light sweet grain. Taste is more like an APA - grainy, somewhat boozy, light citrus zest and pine duff bitterness - nice, actually: simple. Light body, very lively, a bit dry and astringent - quick-finishing with a nice piney finish. Good stuff.
