Six pack in Philly. Literally blew my mind when the owner pulled this out of the fridge. Tastes like a dogfish 60 and 90 combined.. Awesome.

Dark golden hue with a thick creamy head. Smell was a faint hoppy presence. Definately not a strong double IPA taste. The taste of hops was lacking. However this a very drinkable beer, even sessionable. Kind of tastes more like a Pale Ale.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A couple of sample pours at a local beer tasting event. Light golden color, thin head leaves some lacing. Lots of tiny bubbles rising from the bottom or the glass. Some citrus & grapefruit aromas, but also kind of musky odor that I didn’t find pleasant. Grapefruit along with grass and hay notes, some malt sweetness to balance the hops. Medium bodied, well carbonated. Grassy hoppy finish lingers in your mouth for a long time.
Citrus and grapefruit flavors that I normally expect in a big IPA were mellowed out somewhat providing a somewhat unique hop profile. Still overall an enjoyable beer -- would pair nicely with a chicken or seafood entree.

Bottle picked up at SL.Thanks to matt for the heads up on a new brew. Poured aggresive into a snifter. Light orange in color, good pillowing head. Nice aroma of some super piney notes. Smooth taste. Nice and piney with some citrus notes. Fruity. Nicely balanced though. Just a bitter bruiser brew. Hop heads delight. Tad on the sweeter side but still good. Light creamy texture. Great brew.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thin white head thats short lived, a bit of miniscule lacing left behind. Pale gold in color, almost budesque. Mild nose of pine, citrus a little catty, grassy with a hint of bubblegum. Body is med/light with a good carbonation, lightly resiny, oily. Flowery, perfumey hop flavors all around. Maybe a hint of caramel and pale malts, lightly sweet. Touch grainy, bready. Dry finish. Nice bite. Guessin the abv around 7% ?? Bottle procured @statelineliquors.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear gold, huge fluffy white head. Nose is piney at first, then a bunch of citrus (mango?) and some pine cleaner (though the initial pine hit isn’t cleaner-esque), strawberries, lemon ice, light caramel & toasty malts. Flavor is pine, candied orange, a bunch of caramel, some almost vanilla notes. Finish is bitter but also has a bunch of mango sweetness - maybe a bit too sweet. Lingering bitter, caramel, and mango finish. A solid enough offering.
