3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
How: Bottle (22 oz) at tasting. Shared by JulienHuxley, thanks!
>>> A good DIPA that is not too sweet but a bit too boozy to be easily drinkable/enjoyable.
+ The malt base isn’t taking too much place and I think a little more hops (or maybe it’s just freshness) could do wonders
+ The tropical fruits and citrusy hops are well supported by a lean caramel presence and a mild spiciness
− While I like the fact that the malt base isn’t taking too much place, I think that it might not be strong enough to support the alcohol and therefore feels too boozy for my liking
− The beer is nicely hopped, but definitely not on a similar level than FFF hoppy beers that "wowed" me in the past like Zombie Dust and Dreadnaught
○ No idea about when this was bottled, so freshness might be an issue here
Flavors: Tropical fruits, caramel, citrus, mild spiciness

Bottle shared by JulienHuxley, thanks dude! It pours a hazy golden with a small white head that leaves some lacing. Nose is of fruits, pine and some sweetish cereals. Taste is if oranges, pine, weed and moderately bitter. Some alcohol but nothing bad for an IIPA. Moderate body and carbonation. Pretty good, fairly easy to drink for a IIPA.

3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This draft brew from the brewery poured a small sized head of finely sized mostly diminishing bubbles that left behind a uncarbonated orange colored body. The aroma was very mild and undiscernable. The palate was crisp and tingly throughout the citrus finish. The flavor was dominated by citra hops. A very good brew.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. Bottle. Nice resiny grapefruit sweetness on the nose. Pours a hazy golden color with a decent off white head with medium lacing. There’s a nice blend of grapefruit, lemon, pine hops and sweet malts. You also get a well rounded resin flavor. It’s thin, yet creamy with medium carbonation. Solid double IPA.
