3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very light for a 9% abv. and only mild bitterness. The taste is pleasant, but somewhat lacking in depth/intensity. For the price and for the high alcohol content, this is a very good beer and I would get it again, but wouldn’t necesarily recommend it as a beer you need to try.

12oz bottle from Wilkes and Lynn. Orange pour with a thin off-white and slight lacy stick. Aroma is sweet toasted malts. Tastes are earthy toasted malt, resiny grapefruit, orange, floral, syrupy sweet. Crisp and clean - little sweet for my DIPA tastes, but well done.

Great beer, especially for the price. For $8-9 for a six pack, it’s every bit as good as some $10+ four packs. A regular in my fridge.

A pretty smooth double IPA. It reminds me of something DFH might come out with. Tangerine and silky texture. Medium bitterness, well balanced.

Bottle from Total Wine, Henderson, NV
Copper to amber color, hazy, with medium sized creamy head. Sweet aroma, some malt, candies and cough syrup. Nice malt flavor, lean mouthfeel, with strong bitterness but not too much hop quality.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours deep amber with a quickly dissipating white head. Aroma of grapefruit and caramel malt. Tastes of caramel, grapefruit, mandarin. Medium body, smooth mouthfeel almost like custard. Awesome palate. Not as bitter as I was expecting from a DIPA, and not as much crisp hop aroma/flavor in the balance as I would have liked, but still a solid tasty beer.
