3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is almost non-existent. Poured well into a cloudy orange and gold with not much of a froth. Lite piney hops and very smooth for the style. Iíd expect more "kick" from a double IPA. Very smooth would be a good choice for someone wanting to try an IPA for the first time. Kinda chewy and that helps it along would be a great beach beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle to taster. Looks good; a mostly transparent orange with thin off-white lacing. Smells malty with bitter hop notes. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. Malty, but good.

Sometimes you have a beer thatís just right for the day, the moment, the state of mind. For this day it is this beer. Easy aroma, appearance that says drink me, smooth hop taste with an above average alcohol bite (which was perfect for this moment) palate is slightly numbing. Overall? Grab one, find your state of mind, and drink. Enjoy!

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Aroma is burnt carmel, honey and mild hop. Copper-reddish with off white head, some lacing. Super malty, overwhelms hop characteristics. Sweet and a little oak? Heavy booze with a slight hop bittering. Should not be classified as IPA, too sweet and malty. Closer to barley wine with how much malt I get. Very disappointed

Too rate this as a 98 is a joke. I have had this from a bottle and tap as well. Extremely overated to say the least. Way to much malt flavor which really kills the hop profile. Extremely disappointed with this tastes more like a barley wine. Over priced and rated for sure.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a 12oz bottle. Aroma is English malt, citrus, and light booze. Flavors are English malt, light butter, citrus, pine, and a tad boozey. All in all a decent double, a little to malt forward for me tastes.

Draft. From notes. Citrus and pine. A little boozy with alcohol warmth on the finish. Not bad.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap (Hop Juice). Poured a hazy copper color with a thick cream colored head with light lacing. The aroma has a nice hop flower character with mown hay, grass, grapefruit rind and the hop flower.Taste is a big blast of grassy and citrusy hops with a touch of toasted malts. But this one is basically all about the hops, juniper and grapefruit and very bitter. Full bodied with a soft and creamy mouth feel.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Amber brown--not so pale. All kinds of burnt-caramel/scorched syrup up front then mellowing into a crisp honey finish. At least it's 9%+
