Draft at Taphouse in Hampton. Solid amber color with a thin but nicely sticky head. This has an excellent, beefy body, syrupy almost. Drinks with a robust bitter finish with a full-up skeleton of rich malt. Powerhouse IIPA. (#4690, 7/11/2012)

Bottle pour with white head. Smells tastes of resin pine citrus. Pretty much a hop bomb. Not much sticky semi dry flat. Pretty good as far as what it is a bit too much hooks for my taste.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cloudy golden in color with little to no head. Also, little lacing left on the glass. Hoppy sweet citrus, floral aroma. Taste is of hops, floral resin, citrus, some hints of soap, bitterness. On the palate it is crisp and clean with light carbination. Bitter hops remain on the tongue for a short while. Overall a good DIPA that is very drinkable and an enjoyable summer beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled 6/8/12 so it’s pretty fresh. This pours a golden color with a thin white head. The aroma is dank and hoppy, with pine, citrus, and some grass. As it sits more of a sappy resin scent emerges. Crisp and bitter citrus hop flavors with sweet caramel malt supporting. Some pine and catty notes mix in. Fairly dry in the finish. Very drinkable. At 7.5% this really does drink like a standard IPA rather than Double but I am good with that.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Strong hoppy aroma with a nice golden color and white foamy head. Strong bitter flavor and a metallic, acidic aftertaste that blasts the roof of your mouth.
