This is a beast of a 2XIPA, hot damn! Pine, citrus, spice all up in the hoppy nose. Slightly sweet maltiness with a fading bitter finish. Highly recommend to any hop fan out there.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a cloudy golden color with a short eggshell colored head. Sticky suds lace the glass away strictly as the head subsides. Big malty nose with some harsh hop aroma getting expressed. Smooth, slick, possibly oily mouthfeel. Some fine scrubbiness and some warmth occurring as well. This is a big beer. Without having looked, I would assume this fella has ample alcohol given itís large malt profile, evident 100+ IBU count, and warmth. Toffee and fruity flavors.

Very nice DIPA. Intense taste and aromas but without the super malt taste of most DIPAs. I was very pleased

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
No bottle date.
A: pours a hazy amber ale with under a single finger of tan foam which falls slowly to a broken sheet of the same with tortuous billows. Ringed lace.
S: This smells like sweet malts and some piny hops. Not much else. I fear this beer sat on the shelves for quite some time. That being said, the base malts smells of caramel and caramelized sugar.
T: Tastes like a sweet American style Barley Wine. Not impressed as an IPA goes. The malts are sweet and toffee like with hints of oxidation which has developed the malt nicely.
M: A hare thin on the body and low on the carb with a small slickness on the finish.
O: Well, I wish I knew the bottle date on this beer. I know itís not particularly new (as Iíve heard theyíve gone through a label change), but nonetheless, I know their beers to be generally sweet. As a result, Iím stuck believing this is relatively along the lines they intended. As an IIPA, this is far from hopped enough.

The appearance is a clear orange color with a large white head, and the aroma is fairly simplistic with only diacetyl and floral hops coming forward. The taste is mildly bitter and slightly sweet. The palate fuses a slick yet buttery texture, medium body, soft carbonation, and a slightly bitter finish.

This is a lesson on good beer and how to do it. I am really not sure I ever had an IPA that has been this good, it fair near brought a tear to my eye, and reminds me that Iíve been drinking a fair bit of rubbish recently and excusing it as good effort, making excuses for it in my head. This should be on your list of beers to try, and more than once.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours orange with a off white head. Taste citrus, sweet, floral. I thought this was pretty good. I would definitely drink this again.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Burnt orange pour with white head. Nose of citrus and pine with caramel and toasted biscuit. Flavor is citrus meat, orange, with bitter rind and soapy pine. Lightly toasted malt and caramel. Moderately dry, bitter finish with orange zest and pine. Good palate presence with light booze. This presents very similar to FFF Dreadnaught, in my mind, at less than half the cost. Certainly a very good DIPA.
