Surprisingly smooth malt profile for a double IPA. Not the strongest hops presence, but a great combination.

Great fresh IPA. Smell of skunk dankness, appearance is hazy gold with slight white head, taste is fresh hop dank with a little sweetness that finishes clean with a full body.

This is a fine IPA, heavily hopped and balanced with the good malt flavor. It is medium amber in color, with a nice head. It is medium to full bodied.

Keg. Rich clear amber with a decent lacing tan head. Nose is lime, kiwi, tangerine, grapefruits. A fruit cocktail with grapey winey notes. Taste is... Wow. Warm delicious fruits. Oranges, tangerines, mango and a touch of toffee. Warming plum, with a lingering fruity finish. Oh my goodness... I’ve fallen in love.

Tap at Brewdog. Golden with clean frothy white head. Tons of citrus in the aroma: grapefruit, pineapple, orange .Some florals. Caramel malt is present, but an afterthought. Ultra hoppy. The taste even more so. Initially sweet, with some caramel before hops take over. Hop-bomb explodes. Blasting the palate with awesome bitter citrus. Grapefruit and orange rind.
Creeping, evolving bitterness.It sneaks in, undisclosed, strangling tastebuds. On the beer spectrum (hoppy-balanced-malty) this veers so far to the extreme-hop side, that enthusiasts are in danger of being outed as hop-fascists. Awesome beer.

Pours an amber/copper color. Aroma is faint, but has hints of hops. To the palate it is very bitter and long lasting on it. Very solid dry hopped IPA.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy amber with minimal white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, and some sweetness mixed in of vanilla and caramel. Taste was rather off on this and I’m not sure if I got an old bottle or not. Taste was extreme lemon up front, honestly tasted like lemon dawn dish soap. I’d like to try a fresh one to compare, but I’ll put my rating in now based on what I experienced. Still wasn’t terrible, good amount of bitter and dryness.

Poured into Dogfish IPA glass.
Pours an almost opaque orangey gold with a sudsy head. Deep hop aromas with hints of grapefruit.
The taste offers an expert course in delightful bitterness. Medium body with high carbonation.
Perhaps not as complex as other brews but overall a spectacular Double IPA and easy to see why it is a staple for many.
