3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a pretty good ipa, big bite for a double IPA, simcoe comes out pretty strong I must say. Sweetness with a hop bite, look is pretty bad with a floating matter, adn thin head.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
pours a hazy orange amber with a nice white head. Aroma of tangerines, red grapefruit, caramel malt, and resin. Flavor is fantastic. Well balanced. Orange, Grapefruit, resin, and sweet. Full bodied. Oily texture and a little sticky on the lips. Alcohol is well hidden and this is so drinkable that it is real dangerous at 9%. Finishes astringently bitter. This is real good.

Pours a clear orange/gold color. Has some lacing, but no real head retention. Smells hoppy and slightly floral. Tastes very hoppy, but not too bitter. An excellent beer and one that I would seek out in the future.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. The pour is vibrant orange. The aroma is big bold hops. The taste is a little overly bitter. Had high hopes based on the aroma, but taste was lacking.
