1 Pt. 6 Fl. Oz. Bottle (Enjoy by 05/17/13 Batch). Poured a nice clear orange, small white head lots of lacing. Aroma is great, hops: floral, pine and citrus. Taste is also of citrus fruit very crisp but but a nice bitterness to it, it is also well balanced with a nice malty background. Great beer super drinkable and enjoyable.

2013-04-28. Crisp orange body, nice frothy off white head and lace. 4+ Modest aroma of citrus peel grows as it warms up. 7+ Flavour is pleasantly hoppy, citrus melange, sort of tangerines, orange. Citrus grows a bit as you go, gains sort of an oily orange peel quality, light resin notes. 7++ Average plus bodied palate, good carbonation. 3+ Pretty nice stuff! Enjoy By 5.17.13 IPA, On tap at The Whiskey House, Burlington

05-17-13 - Pours a golden orange, aroma of pine and citrus hops. Tastes quite fresh, piney and citrus balanced out with a bit of caramel malt and bitter finish. Little more of an earthy taste as it warmed. Really good DIPA. Thoroughly enjoyed.

(tap) 5.17.13 variety - clear pale yellow colour with a small white head; aroma of citrus, then some sweet floral; very dry flavour, bit like a mix of dry white wine and IPA, long medium bitter and mineral finish

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
5.17.13 drank on 5.9.13. Pours a copper orange with a small head. Aroma is extremely crisp and floral. The pine scent is abundant as is the grassy notes. Grapefruit is the dominate scent. Picking up slight lemon lime. Taste is grapefruit and pine very a very sharp and crisp bite. Palate is bittersweet and grassy with grapefruit and pine flavors dominating the tongue. Mouthfeel is medium body, very tingly. The glass retains a large amount of lace. Other than Adirondack Brewery IPA, this is the freshest I've tasted.

Tasted on 5/8/13 from a capped 650mL bomber bottle purchased at Sun Devil. Pours clear bright orange with an average off-white head that slowly recedes to average lace. The nose is awesome, with tons of floral and citrus hops, along with a nice dank hops note and just enough caramel malt to back everything up. The flavor is the same with the dank flavor in the hops showing strongest with the floral and citrus hops second and third, respectively. There is also a nice backbone of caramel malt nicely balancing everything out. The body is full with a sticky texture, average carbonation, and a long, very floral, dank, and nicely bitter finish. This is a top class IPA.

Pour is clear golden orange with a fairly tight white head. Nose is hop forward with a light grain malt balance. Herbal and citrus hops with a touch of sticky resin behind. Taste is a huge hop punch and quite syrupy and resinous. Sticky feel, assertive carbonation balances, tons of citrus and grapefruit. Some bitterness in the finish that lingers a bit. Overall not bad, very syrupy and hop forward.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deuce bottle from Binnys Beverage Depot, Schaumburg, IL. 5.17.13. Deep coppery yellow with a half inch or so if white somewhat thin suds on top. Pretty translucent, visible carbonation bubbling from glass bottom. Amazing smell on this one. Delicious ruby red grapefruit aroma, spring garden floral variety as well, lavender and the like. Mouthfeel is chalky and then has a bitter, dry and surprisingly clean finish. Leaves the tongue slightly numb. Taste is bitter and not at all as juicy as the nose. Very bitter citrus, nearly astringent from the pale malt bill perhaps. Seems salty. Probably signs of the ABV. Update-became VERY well blended as it warmed. Finish is still surprisingly clean, maybe a bit more bitter. Since I prefer a sweeter, juicier, hop-forward IPA this wasn’t my favorite. Very good well blended double IPA though once warmed
