4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at La Cav du Vin, poured into a standard pint glass
a: nice deep amber color, 1/2" slightly off white head with nice retention, reduces into lacing rings. Nice amount of carbonation
s: nice fruit/pine hop aroma, excellent
t: hop explosion on the palate. Mostly pioney notes, but there is a hint of citrus/grapfruit. Nice malty backbone. Alchohol is slightly noticeable as it warm. Nice DIPA.
m&d: slightly oily mouthfeel. Ends slightly sticky and dry but I come to expect that with the hop level in this. Decenty drinkability however, more than 2 in a session is asking for trouble.

Nice catpiss mango aroma. Taste follows. A lot of debris in this one but that never bothered me. Average

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from ABC. Pours a gorgeous dark murky brown with a thin head that is gone almost instantly. Lacing is expectedly thin as well. Aroma is super piney with a malt skeleton. Some dark fruits here as well. Flavor is bitter throughout with a long, satisfying finish. Full bodied, oily mouthfeel. Each sip is a glorious jolt of flavor and a reminder of why I love this style. Acquire.

I?ve had better double IPAs. Not really getting any nose on this one, but does have the big "stank" finish that one is looking for. Think I?ll pass next time on this one. Bring more aroma next time.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle into snifter glass, hazy rusty-amber color with cream colored head. Aroma of strong pine/grapefruit hops, heavy malt sweetness, light fruitiness and faint woody note. Taste adds notes of caramel, berries, lemon rind, dried fruit (prunes mainly) and honey. Heavy body, low carbonation, sticky, syrupy, dry with lingering citrus bitter finish. A monster yet balanced DIPA, showcases the complexity of the simcoe hop well.

Deep amber, some brown, moderate haze, light tan head medium retention. Aroma of woods and red berries, some sweetness. Flavor starts with a cherry like essence, moves into some sweetness with resin, fades in a long slow finish with strong woody bitterness. Quite nice.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Iíll be honest here, its too much. I donít know if my taste buds have turned but I feel this is just a full-on-in-your-face-malty-hoppy-behemoth that lacks that refined taste. I prefer light body ipaís so I may be biased, but the malt sweetness is too much. Apricot juice, thats its.
