3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
FROM NOTES: October 22, ’13.
A: Tropical fruit, orange, mango, and hops. Really floral and fresh.
A: Pours a slight cloudy golden orange color, with a nice one finger off white head at the top, leaves a pretty good amount of lacing around the glass.
T: Initially an earthy hops bitterness followed by a mild caramel and citrus sweetness. The malt character is hearty but there isn’t much balance. The after-taste is slightly hoppy.
P: Crisp and a little smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.
O: A decent 2IPA but there are several others in the style that I would pick first.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours gold with floaters of yeast. Unappealing looking. Pungent aroma of hops, grapefruit and orange zest. Flavor is pretty well balanced. Sweet malt bill with nice bitterness. Not too heavy. Very good, but not so different than the seemingly hundreds of other double IPAs out there.

Amber in color, clear with a thin head. Nice big hoppy flavor and finish. Big malt and lots of hops follow this beer throughout. Tasty as hell.

Bottle. Taste is bitter citrus, dough, pine, wood and a nice dose of booze. Solid IPA. Cheers.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from 12oz. bottle. Hazy, light gold with a medium white head that faded quickly. Strong aroma, heavy on citrus, especially grapefruit, also pine notes. Light to medium mouthfeel. Nice up front juicy citrus flavors, again with grapefruit coming to mind. This fades into a long finishing bitterness.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle (also had on draft a while ago). Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have a nice toasted bready malt base with citrus, resiny, dank hops, moderate bitterness and I agree with many others that this is an improvement over Hop Wallop.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Notes of citrus and tropical fruit but has a bit of the catty Simcoe character I’m not crazy about. Also a touch too bitter for me.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a really great DIPA. Very well balanced between the hops and malts, with a nice sweet finish. You could actually sit and have a few of these without wanting to rip your tongue out.
