3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can from my trip to Vegas. Pours orange brown with an off white head. Aroma is dank, citrus. Flavor is caramel, orange, citrus, floral hop. Some grapefruit bitter in the finish. This is within it’s best by date, but barely... I thought it might be past its prime, but looking at other reviews it sounds like this is what it’s supposed to be. Not bad, but a little to the sweeter side of balanced.

Deep copper colored pour. Huge off white head. Tons of lacing. Big caramel nose. Not much hops. Sugary caramel taste. Cloying. Some corn notes as well.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can. An unclear, golden colored beer with a small, off-white head. The aroma is sweetish, with apricot notes and resins. The flavor has a light sweetness, a bitterness level to deal with it, some maltyness and resiny, piney hop flavors. Full body and a pleasant carbonation level. Lasting fruity and bitter finish. Sure a decent one, not too bitter and not too sweet. Wouldn’t mind repeating this one. 140613

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hard to believe this is a double IPA - it seems far more like a "meh" IPA. Pours golden with a medium head that sticks around. Aroma is mild resiny hops. Taste is mild resin/pine hop and malt at the beginning, but then a lasting bitterness. Not "interesting, complex, hoppy bitterness." Just bitterness. This would be a decently refreshing summer beer, but I wouldn’t pick it up if I wanted an interesting beer.

This beer was very mild in the hoppy flavor it really hit you late in the process. It poured a caramel color and left a light head typical of an ipa

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 25, 2014 12 oz can from Aspen Park Wine & Spirits. Hazy burnt orange appearance with a beige head and sticky lacing. Aroma of pine, resinous hops, light alcohol, citrus fruits and light floral notes. Similar flavor, medium raw hop bitterness balanced by mild fruity, malty sweetness. Medium plus body. Pretty solid DIPA

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is a nice subtle Double IPA. The hop character is nicely matched to wonderful maltiness. I taste a hint of caramel or butterscotch in the malt. Neither are overdone. This is a bier one could drink all night and not grow tired of. Very nice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is a little understated, was expecting a much bigger kick from both the hops and the ABV. That said, this is part of this beer’s charm, very smooth and drinkable for a DIPA. Lots of hop resin, almost sticky, clingy head with lots of lacing, more hop resin on the finish.
