3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dirty and hazy amber, Nice aroma of resin hops but a little sharp, citrus undertone with a strong malt backbone. Moderate body and carbonation, little bit of initial sweetness but becomes bitter and grows more so. Leaves a nice blend of resin hops and malt. Good.

Dark orange pour with an off-white head. Aroma has a nice hop influence- a little fruity. Taste is hop dominant- light fruit. 8% alc. is well hidden. Hops are not over powering. Nice lacing.

I got a bad 4 pack at a local grocery store not known for it’s craft beer. I need to listen to my buddies advice "don’t buy craft beer at a store that doesn’t turn lots of it over". OK, my bad, and wow was this bad. Not a HINT of IPA in this. Malty sweet, very very little bitterness. Blech. If I see this at a different, more reliable store, I’ll try it again, since I’m a fan of citrus and floral hops.

Draught at Drop Off, N.Y., June 1. Pours a deep orange-amber with a small semi-lasting frothy white head. Nice aroma of fruity hops, citrus and tropical fruit. Big hoppy flavour, quite fruity, along with a bit of alcohol and a finish that is only slightly harsh. Medium bodied. I quite liked this.

12oz can poured into a goblet.
Cloudy amber-orange with a small off white head.
Piney hops aroma with some peach candy, onion, grass and cookies.
Juicy hop flavor (though a bit stale) with sweet malts, caramel and canned fruit (apricots).
Full body, highly bitter, soft carbonation and could be cool when fresh.

Pours a murky orange copper color with a head that fails to get to a finger but retains a collar and has good lacing. Aroma is citrusy with a good amount of caramel sweetness and a bit of pine. Taste is surprisingly malty sweet at first with caramel and and toasted malt, then the hops fight back with citrus and a fair amount of bitterness and a grassy note. Finishes slightly bitter but builds somewhat as you drink. Mouthfeel is smooth and medium bodied with a medium carbonation. Finishes semi dry and a little sticky. I was surprised how malty this was for a double IPA. More balanced and less bitter than expected but not very complex. Not bad but nothing special.
