3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle at home. Orange-amber color, though more the former than the latter. Fine white bubbles. Aroma is earthy floral hops, light malts; flavor profile is similar, though definitely more citrusy. Palate is clean and refreshing for the ABV, which is well hidden. Better on the first sip than as it goes on. Somewhere in there this beer’s great grandaddy is an American macro, which isn’t something I often detect in double IPAs, but there’s a trace of MGD in there. I think ultimately that ups the refreshment factor . . ,. did I really just say that?
Overall I like it. Easy to drink and easier on the wallet than Hopslam.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Petite bouteille offerte par le voisin. Une bière qui porte la robe appropriée avec une mousse plus ou moins épaisse mais tenace dans cette chaleur presque tropicale. Des parfums d’agrumes et de pin, de malts entre le miel et le caramel. Une bouche solidement houblonnée, américaine, ni trop amère ni trop maltée. Un corps impérial qui n’est jamais lourd. Une finale fruitée et résineuse drôlement efficace. Facile à boire, bien ficelée.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear with golden yellow and brief white foam. Citrus nose -- grapefruit -- with a dryness. Moderate toasted malt with initial touches of caramel. Taste brings out more of the piney aspects of the hops, but citrus is dominant. Moderately bitter. Finish is bitter but becomes sweeter as the beer warms up.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice aroma profile, get citrus and flowers. Seems a bit bitty, meaning you know you are drinking higher ABV as it sticks out. Nice golden color a slight bit hazy imo, white head with decent retention. Mild sweetness with plenty of citrus hops and decent bitterness. Medium body thick style DIPA and left with a decent bitter finish. You can drink more than one of these so get the 6 pack .
