3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
It's good, but it's far from my favorite double IPA. Not horribly complex, just dry with some hops.

Pours golden orange with a thin rocky white head with small islands of foam. Notes of earthy hops and juicy orange citrus with a final hit of spice. Nice. Mouthfeel is robust and medium-full bodied with good carb and balancing bitterness from hops.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz can. Pours glowing hazy golden amber with a small creamy off white head that goes to a thin fil and laces the glass.
The aroma is a bit subdued - sweet caramel malt and piney, resiny hops.
The flavor is sweet nutty caramel malts and fruit with a big piney resiny bitter hop finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.
Overall, more like an imperial red with to nutty caramel malts and big piney resiny hops.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium amber. Aroma is lightly malty (caramel), lightly hoppy (apricot), with notes of yellow squash and celery. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter, slightly husky, slightly unclean. Medium to full body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic, lightly to moderately astringent.
Based on the Tempter IPA, I thought maybe these guys had made improvements across the board, but it doesn’t appear to be so. This is quite vegetal/husky in the nose with hardly any hop bouquet to help hide the mess. Syrupy and overly sweet in the mouth with some sourness and a slightly dirty and husky aftertaste. Another drain pour from Telluride, doggone it.
