4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
I got a btl of this beer at Castle and checked date. Bottled very recently almost shockly less than a week old. Never tried this beer afraid it would have that alcohol/resin taste that some dbl ipas can have, which i do not like. Due to the freshness i figure this would be the best opportunty to see this beer at its best. It was great. Great hops but also balanced and great piney/citrus nose. Which hid the high abv. Really enjoyed. I have had a lot of good and bad dbl ipas this one is up there. Other favs pliney, gandhibot, heady, dirtwolf, hopranch.

12 oz Bottle. Tasted on 5/24/14. Bottle from Total Wine & More. The aroma has a dry pine, light earth notes & some floral notes. The taste is also dry with a similar taste to the aroma. Definitely not my favorite IPA but was ok overall. Would put it on my list to go out & buy.

Pours a golden hazy color with a decent white head. Aroma is hops, resin, pine, citrus brightness. Taste is the same but with added body, somewhat syrupy pine, lots of grapefruit. Overall a very drinkable and sessionable IPA.

12 oz. bottle. Bright Golden pour a little haze, with a white head. Aroma is bitter hops, lemon, orange, caramel sweetness. Taste is bitter right up front, dank resiny hops with pine and grapefruit. Bready, bitter and citrusy finish.

5/14/14. Growler fromWhole Foods. Poured golden yellow with nice two finger head and good lacing. Looked pretty clear compared to some reviews. Drinks much more like a standard IPA than an Imperial. None of the hop/alcohol balance mouthfeel of my favorite DIPAs. Big hop mouth with a medium citrusy nose.

Bottle@bishops. Yellow golden, clearish. Citrus green floral, meadowy, light estery nose. Full body, butterscotch citrus. Has a bit of a soapy strange finish I don’t appreciate too much. Smooth though, easy to palate.

Lovely fragrant tropical and zesty aroma like papaya and lime. Paler than most ipas, nice lacing though, and a deep golden glow. in the mouth it’s all treble and no mids or bass - pineapple juice and handy andy spring to mind. carapils abuse leaves a slimy aftertaste, although not too toffeeish like darker ipas. kind of a weird beer, but has its attractions.

Much hoppier than balanced. Good start, but the after taste is insanely bitter.
