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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a clear orange color with a small off-white head. Aromas are citrus and floral hops, with papaya and peach notes. Bitter pine and citrus flavor. Balanced nicely with sweet tropical fruit and caramel malts. Some alcohol is noticeable during a nice funky overripe fruit aftertaste. Smooth, with low carbonation and medium body. I liked it, nice for a hot day.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours an orange color with a very thin white foam head. Has an aroma of grapefruit and caramel. Has a big malt back. Has a similar taste to Gubna, minus the resiny hoppiness. Sweet and syrup like up front. A nice carbonated bitterness in the middle with a sweet clean finish. Has a subtle resinous character. Creamy on the back end and through the finish. Solid DIPA. The Unearthies and Gemini are better, however.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Amber pour with a tall, fluffy white head. Pleasant citrus and pine in the nose along with floral hops, caramel and sweet, chewy malt. Taste is resinous hops, grapefruit, pine needles, caramel, chewy malts, and orange peel. Body is medium-full with a moderate, creamy carbonation. Oily in spots as well with a lingering hop bitterness. Ends with more big floral and spicy hops, citrus oils, grapefruit juice and pine needles. Chewy malt backbone throughout and a sweet, chewy caramel taste as well. Rather nice. Had this been around 5 or 6% ABV, this would be a perfect session style IPA.
