3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy deep golden pour with a minimal white head. Aroma had light notes of citrus, sweet malt, orange, nice tropical fruitiness once it opens up a bit. Flavors followed suit with nice citrus notes, lingering bitterness, lemon peel, dry lingering finish. Actually super balanced and clean. Quite drinkable for the style. Overall pretty impressed by the simplicity of this one, although it seems to add depth as you drink it. Good stuff.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - 08/12. Pours clear orange, medium off-white creamy head with nice residual and lacing. Aroma is dank and nasty with notes of pot, pine and passionfruit. Flavor is light plus sweet, medium bitter, dank and juicy. The hop aromatics have faded somewhat in six weeks. I bet this is a killer when super fresh. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
4 oz. pour, on tap at Duckworth’s in Uptown Charlotte, North Carolina. Consumed on 9-22-15. Pours a clear gold with beige head. Good lacing. Moderate effervescence. Acceptable but ordinary appearance. Piney aroma, sweet for the style. Flavor is piney and features a lemony Pine Sol element; soap. Gym locker finish. Not bad but not my thing within the Double IPA style. Medium to full body. Lively in the palate. Doesn’t do it for me in honesty. I don’t really understand the high ratings on this site, but to each his own.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
1 pint bottle from Tasty Beverage in Raleigh. Golden hue, normal clarity with mostly lasting fizzy white head. Okay lacing. Super hop grapefruit aroma, pine resin and malt. Heavy acidic citrus hop on the first sip that eventually dies down with more of a grapefruit hop finish. The more the beer warms the more the presence of malt appears. Somewhat of a dry finish. Overall a good DIPA

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a light golden with a soapy head and a long-lasting lacing. Smells of a typical IPA. A lot of pine needles and resin, but after sipping it for a while, there is a citrus element in there too. Bitter. The end has a sticky mouthfeel mixed with bitterness. It didn’t totally sit well with me. It is not a bad beer at all, but unless I lived in that area, this would not be a go to beer for me.
