3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
"Not quite an imperial" according to the commercial deScription, about sums this beer up. Aromas and flavors of citrusy hops are muted and tamed by the sweet malty backbone. Mid yellow body with what looks like fine yeast floaters, average palate. Overall it was ok, not a big fan of sweet IPA’s or IIPA’s or those in between.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours golden, slightly dark. Quickly dissipating head. Aroma is citrus, piney, maybe grassy. Taste is quite hoppy , piney, earthy, not overwhelmingly bitter. Some malt balance. Taste is stronger than aroma to my surprise. Note this is my first Double IPA.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Slightly hazy pale yellow-amber color with a modest cream colored head. Good floral, pine, and tropical hop aroma on the nose. Mild toasted malts. The body is medium. Big hop flavors and a bitter bite to end. It is right up there with others in is class but there is little more I can say about it.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Good citrusy aroma - lemon zest and some pineapple. Not all that good looking. Cloudy dark yellow color with a huge tuft of white foam that takes forever to recede. The taste has a surprising amount of sweetness up front, then the citrus hops mentioned in the aroma kick in. The aftertaste is a perfect harmony of sweet and hoppy flavors. The hops are strong enough, but not bitter. The palate is thick enough to prevent the beer from being watery but thin enough to keep it refreshing. Overall, I found this to be a good, non-pretentious, easy drinking DIPA that I would definitely seek out again.
