3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy, pale, light orange color with a small head that lingers a bit. Aroma is an interesting mix of mango, kiwi, lavender, peaches, and grapefruit. Taste is heavily floral to me but the other aroma all come through. There’s a sweet cracker and bread malt also. Solid DIPA even though the flavors aren’t usually what I enjoy really.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Ar: Orange pith, lemon, mango, pineapple.
Ap: Straw gold, slightly hazy - medium white head with moderate retention - leaves some lace clinging, with a fine ring and a thin, almost complete foam cap.
T: Bright resiny hops up front - pine and mango - slight cracker malt sweetness - clean and high bitterness - lemon and pineapple, with more pine.
P: Medium body with high carbonation - finish is dry.
O: Really nice 2XIPA - the hop punch is tropical, piney, and extremely fresh - malt flavor and sweetness are just enough, without getting the way - delicious.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Keg at Tap East, Stratford. It pours a slightly hazy straw color. Aroma is hoppy and fruity with pineapple, mango over a sweet malty backbone. Taste is quite sweet and fruity, with caramel malts and tropical hops. Slight booze kick. Full bodied with crisp carbonation. Quite good if a tad sweet.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Tipples. Can’t see the date but I assume relatively fresh. Pours clear and golden with a giant fluffy white head. Sweet aroma of lemon peel, dankness, honey, pale malts, funky grass. Flavor is sweet lemony hops with some light pine and lots of grassiness, very light sweetness from the malts in the background. Very smooth and low to medium bitter for the style. Medium mouthfeel, resinous, but surprisingly light for a double IPA! Hard to believe this is 9%. Could be dangerous. Very nice brew.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, best before 5/24/2014. Pours moderately hazy/cloudy golden straw color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin lace cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big mango, peach, pineapple, grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, white grape, floral, grass, light pine, light honey, and floral earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great complexity of citrus/tropical hops and a light-moderate malt balance; with good strength. Taste of big mango, peach, pineapple, tangerine, grapefruit, lemon zest, white grape, floral, grass, pine, light honey, and floral earthiness. Good amount of earthy floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of mango, pineapple, peach, tangerine, grapefruit, lemon zest, white grape, floral, grass, pine, and floral earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic complexity of bright citrus/tropical hops with light-moderate malt balance; with a nice crisp malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and moderately sticky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an outstanding DIPA. Great complexity of bright hop flavors with a light-moderate malt balance; and very smooth and crisp to sip on for the ABV. A highly enjoyable offering.
