Not sure I’d classify this a Double IPA. Definitely a very nice brew though. Well balanced with some citrusy hops and enough chewy malts to even things out. Worth searching out.

Very complex IPA, so much so that it doesn?t really taste like one. Don?t get me wrong there is hop bitterness, mango and other tropical fruit notes. A candied sugar sweetness that melds well with hop and malt profile. Very enjoyable.

An interesting aroma of fruit, malt and a hint of hops. Great looking beer with a medium white well laced head, cloudy caramel color. Sweet malt and fruit taste with a medium body and a dry malt finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle from The Hop Yard, Raleigh, NC (9.43% ABV according to the label). Dark orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of lemon, tangerine, and wet grass. Taste is good with tropical fruits (mango, pineapple, and oranges) upfront and a slightly sweet malt profile to balance. Lacks any real hop bitterness that I would normally find in an IPA/DIPA as the hop profile is just fruity. Much better than I remember from when I first had this years ago but still this would not be my go-to DIPA.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle @ Jungle Jim’s / Eastgate OH --- Cloudy dark amber, frothy off-white 1" head, streamers of lace. Taste is strong sweet malt in a brew that has the audacity to smash it with equally strong citrus hops. The hops aren’t up to the assignment, as the malt re-takes the brew in a long, slow, finish. A really big brew that isn’t as good as it pretends to be. A solid brew, but not a top dog.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle. Over a year old. Was told it was better as a year old barleywine than a fresh barleywine. And they’re right. Bitter English barleywine. Caramel malts. Slight booze. Not bad.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured clear, amber, huge off white head, nice lacing all over the glass. Hoppy aroma, some malts, fruits and some booze. Taste starts bready and malty, hoppy and fruity towards the end; a bit boozy too. Very enjoyable and quite drinkable.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Deep cloudy orange color, head isn’t there but the lace is all over the glass. Aroma is hop, wheat, dark fruit, yeast, alcohol. The fruits come flying out of the wine glass I’m drinking this out of. Excellent. Flavor is hop, roasted malt, stone fruits, lime, vegetables, oak, pine, spice. I feel the warmth from the ABV after only three sips. Delightful.
