3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance is a dark copper with half a finger of head. The head dissipates quickly but leaves some lacing behind on the glass. The nose is both piney and hoppy. The upfront flavor is a solid blend of malt and hops. The finish is not nearly as hoppy as top flight IPAs, but this still remains a solid effort. There is a touch of alcohol on the finish as well, but it is not too bad.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour is a dark red with a small white head. Aroma is caramel sweetness with citrus bitterness. Flavor is a decent hop but then that sweet caramel malt takes over. Finish is malt sweetness with a touch of bitterness. Another one of these double IPA’s where the malt far outpowers the hops. Probably better fresh but I’m rating the bottle I was given.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a dark gold-orange with a high, mixed-grain, cream-colored head. The nose -- which is a little suppressed by the copious foam -- is lime, floral, yeast, and fresh bread. Intensely bitter on the front of the tongue, with white grapefruit and rosemary notes; it’s somewhat hot on the back of the tongue and the throat, and there’s just enough caramel malt to keep it from being out of whack. Very dry finish. Quite intense.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Not much to add to what has been said. Aroma is citrus with grapefruit most obvious, pine resin, grass, toffee. Good retention with off white lacing. Slightly hazy deep gold color. Nice Big bitter front with fairly aggressive malt that give a nice sweetness. Mid range palate average carbonation. Overall I enjoy this one.

12oz can from The Hop Yard in Raleigh. Reddish-orange hue, murky clarity with mostly lasting white fizzy head. Decent lacing. Strong grapefruit and orange hop aromas. Strong citrus grapefruit hop taste up front with more of the same finish. Fizzy on palate, good mouth feel.
