3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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 can’t say this is great, but its alright to drink. But there are many other Double IPAs that I’d 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.

Had this last year when fresh, previously called hop juice, same logo. One of the more dissapointing double ipas. Not really sure what they were doing here. Bitter but no realy hop flavors coming through.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Smooth, rich, creamy body of sweet candied apple, orange peel and cane sugar, gaining complex undertones of toffee throughout a heavy backbone of crisp, fresh hops that aren’t as overpowering as the name suggests. Balanced well for the huge abv, lingering on a creamy malt and intense hop note. Surprisingly sweet.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from The Deli Lama. Pours a clear orangey copper with an orange head leaving some lace. Aroma has biscuits, sweet and sour fruits and citrus. Taste is of sweet fruits, citrus, toffee and bread. But in a muddle. No clear flavor and no tasty one. Medium bodied and a bit sticky. Finishes sweet & sour and a bit short. Huh. Not sure what they were doing or what they did here. No age on the bottle, perhaps that is the issue?
