2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Certainly the 2nd worst ’double IPA’ I’ve had (after the one Trader Joes carries). Dense, tight un-charming bitterness coupled with creepy fruity sweetness. No redeeming characteristics. Yuck.

Draught @ Albion. Dark orange with smal beige foamy head, light floral hops aroma, low carbonation, sweetish hoppy taste with grassy flavor, smooth texture, longish finish with low bitterness. Interestingly not bitter enough as advertised.

Aroma is a little off putting, but the nice blend of sweet, fruity character blends well with with hint of pine hops at the end. Picked up in Asheville in 2015.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is almost like a wine, a bit sweet for a double IPA, but the aftertaste is hoppy to balance it out a bit. Not much carbonation, but that is probably planned to bring out more of the flavor. Pours an orange-dark gold color. Semi-hazy medium texture. Pretty strong alcohol content. Overall a top-notch beer.

Bottle at home while visiting Jacksonville. Pours amber with a white head. Sticky, sweet veggie, funky fruit aroma. Medium to full body, medium carbonation. Sweet with irn bru, orange squash, pine, lemon, carmel, candy... Some booze heat... tasty enough but and nicely balanced but too sickly sweet for me on the whole... OK.

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.
