3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
First review so please bare with me ;)
Aroma: Malt steals the show. On the background, piney, fruity (apricot-citrux). App: amber with carbonation, white head. Taste: Good American double IPA but a little too much malty and syrup too much present, Nice bitter finish though. Palate: Thick. Overall: Great double IPA, happy that I drank it and would drink it again. Not he best double IPA I drank but far from the worst I drank.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of a bready maltiness with slight piney hops, but malt dominates. Taste is bready malt with a piney bitter finish. Palate is a bit thick and syrupy. Ok ipa, but not very balanced and much too malty.

Draft: very nice double IPA. Lots of tropical fruits and citrus sit on top of a big bready malt backbone.... Nice and sticky hops. Loved it.

I wish I could describe the flavors and feel of what I didn’t like about this beer. I was expecting so much from the makers of hop nosh and was pretty bummed. Its not what I was expecting from the makers of hop nosh. They should have just doubled that recipe.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours an orange amber with a full pale yellow head and lots of lacing. Fruity and spicy aroma. Taste is sweet caramel malt, grapefruit juice, strong hop bitterness and a slight breadiness. If it weren’t for the high IBU, I imagine the malty sweetness would be cloying.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a beautiful hazy orange fading to gold - a bubble-strewn sunset with a huge foamy white head. Wet lacing. Aroma is candied caramel and peach - apricot citrus. Taste is a nice balance of caramel malts, grapefruit and piney hoppy bitterness. Actively carbonated, sticky and dry on the palate. Finish is strongly bitter with fairly noticable booze. A pretty high quality IIPA - sweetness toned down and balanced with bitter, but the alcohol is a bit dominant.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
We had the first bottle after a homemade pasta dinner. Unfortunately...not paling blame on tomato or bottle compromise...but it left a cat tongue in its wake. Tonight we had a "remember the alamo" moment. Vengeance happened. Clear as mud, as yankees say...smells like syrupy hops...tastes reminiscent of Bells Two Hearted and that’s NEVER a bad thing.

Cloudy copper pour from bottle. Taste is citrus, pine, hops, dough and booze. A nice blend of hoppy bitterness and biting booziness. Well done.
