3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber with thick foamy head. Strong floral hop aroma. Taste is chewy resinous caramel malt and earthy resinous hops. Bitterness is pronounced but not overpowering. Nothing about this one blows me away. Not bad but an average IIPA.

On tap, pours slightly cloudy amber. Expected happier nose, so disappointed on the aroma. Nice hop bitterness offsets significant malty smoothness. Overall enjoyable, but I expected something more on the hop profile.

Bottle. Pours copper, slight haze, off-white head. Hoppy aroma with blend of resiny and citrusy notes and some underlying bready and toasty malt. Flavor of toasty malt with some caramel malt, citrus some slightly grassy, green-hop character. Balanced finish. I would have liked more of a grapefruit flavor from the hops.

Pours a murky amber with a small off white head. Aromas of dirty dishes, baby shit. Taste is bitter alcohol butt wipes. Finishes on a note of dumpster juice from the dumpster outside the Chinese restaurant. No.

Very citrusy with nice tropical and piney hops. Very sweet with a bitter finish. All in all a very imperial IPA and easy drinker.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a bright amber in color with a full, frothy white head. The aroma foreshadows the strength in this one. It smells potent. Caramel, resin, orange, sugar, and hints of apple, pine, and alcohol. The taste is sweet and malty. It is balanced well with caramel, orange, and alcohol. Hints of pineapple and bread. Aftertaste is an alcoholic orange flavor. Full bodied, with a thick and chewy texture. Average carbonation, but below average for one of this style. I canít say this is great, but its alright to drink. But there are many other Double IPAs that Iíd rather drink.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Whole Foods, Bowery 12oz ($4): Pours amber with off-white head. Aroma is tropical fruit, citrus, toffee. Taste is rather hoppy, but is actually well-balanced against the fairly hefty malt backbone. This is somewhat sweet. Not really bitter, but more of a tropical fruity fruit basket. Medium bodied. Pleasant to drink.
