4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
pine lemon and grapefruit strong in the aroma with candyish and deeper malt in the way far back..wow..clear yellow with a pure white head with much lacing..taste is major..possibly the strongest pine hops ive ever tasted with a none too shabby blend of pure grapefruit,lemon,and even a minty yeast..malt purely for background but there..palate medium bodied fairly dry finish with long aftertaste,,overall this is a major ipa these are really strong hop flavors that are perfectly balanced to compliment each other at about 8-9 bucks for a four pack which will be plenty for one session

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
From a 355ml bottle on 5/3/2015. Pours a clear light golden with a smallish white head. Looks as much like a pale lager as a double IPA. Doesn’t smell like a lager though. The nose is lovely - strong, floral and fruity, with a touch of caramel in there. Lots of caramel caramel malt hits you on taking a sip, along with big dollops of peach and apricot, and honey. The hops are firm and grapefruity, but perhaps a touch subdued for the style. They linger in the background, though the sweetness ultimately prevails here. The palate is quire syrupy and the carbonation is average. A very enjoyable DIPA.

Very pungent hoppy aroma. Pours with medium head, fuzzy redish. Taste is excellent! Very well balanced with a not so dry finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ Cardinal. Almost clear golden body with a medium sized, dense and lacing off-white head. Aroma has mild citric fruit, peach, grapefruit, pine and some grass. Flavor is medium malty, citric fruity, grassy and relatively bitter. Medium body and bitter aftertaste. Totally OK, but not as impressive as expected. Maybe the bottle is a bit old?

Great IPA, very easy drinking... Maybe too easy. Lemon, Floral, hops, finish is lacking and is this beers weakness. Would buy again but wouldn’t go out of my way

This poured slightly hazy and cloudy. Not sure if they just changed the keg or what, but not as clear as it has been represented. Smells citrusy and hoppy with strong overtones of grapefruit. A very nice beer here, but not the DIPA I expected. That being said, a very good beer.

Pretty hardcore IPA. This one will kick you in the teeth and take your lunch money. Dark look and nice hit on the back end. Definitely not selling out to the man on this one.

Bottle in NYC - sourced from De Cicco’s. Pours clear gold with a foamy white head. Great aroma with rich, layered hop character, lots of citrus and pine, pale malts, mango, orange. Medium sweet flavor with resinous hops, gooey ripe citrus fruits, pine oils, mild grassy bitterness, balancing pale bread. Medium to full bodied with average carbonation. Warming and resinous on the finish with more gooey citrus, grass, pine, mild bready pale malts, some spicy pine, wood, melon, pith. Excellent DIPA.
