3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pretty good DIPA. Pours a slightly cloudy, copper-gold, with medium-sized head. Aroma of citrus and pine. Flavor is a bit boozy, with lots of sweetness, some pine and citrus from the hops, smooth, sweet finish. Not a bad example at all...

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Thought their regular IPA was pretty good; hoping the DIPA is nice also. Here we go. Sweet, piney, even slightly cheesy aroma; bit sharp for my liking. Flavor is sweet, resinous, and quite onion and catty as well. Ugh. Some good elements here, but it’s too overpowering. Definitely not a fan of IPAs, double or otherwise, with cheesy, onion, catty elements. I’ll stick with their regular IPA.

Pours orange hued copper with a slightly off white head. Aroma is floral, citrus and a touch of toast. Taste is a good amount of bitters that sweetens towards the finish. Medium bodied, slick texture and overall a very solid DIPA, the aroma is excellent.

Draft at Yard house. First wiff smacks you with fresh hops. Notes of citrus and grapefruit hang around. Also get some pine. Taste brings out a strong malt backbone and an alcohol burn. Solid IIPA.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
It poured a clear, bright amber color with an off-white head. The aroma was of citrus fruits, floral notes, biscuits, cereal malts and some tropical fruit notes. The taste was of a dry malt base with a hint of caramel then some hop bitterness, grapefruit, pineapple with some lingering hop bitterness through the finish. Nice.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a dark amber with a tight sudsy off white head that fades to a tight foamy film with plenty of lacing. Aroma has subtle hop presence with sweet caramel malt playing the field. Taste is sweet spicy bitter hops of pins spruce and caramel malt. Palate is medium sticky and crisp/dry. Solid, but not anything new in terms of pushing boundaries.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clear orange / golden with a beige head, The aroma has lots of grapefruit, bits of pineapple, pine, dry caramel and crackers. The body is pretty rough with a bit of aggressive carbonation. The flavor starts with grapefruit zest, pine, woodiness and the caramel / crackery malt. The finish has a bit of sweetness and alcohol, but is still pretty hop forward with a rough and resiny sort of thing. Pretty solid.
