Rated on 20170519.
Pours clear copper color with a large white head. Very resinous aroma with mild hop notes, malty with some caramel, faint pine. Flavor is also resinous, malty and sweet with caramel, mild bitterness, slightly bready dry finish. Clearly a bit old already, okay malty brew anyway.

8.4%ABV. Double IPA. Poured out amber. 14 SRM. Nose is spicy with some pine overtones. Sweet malt. Some honeyed toast. At the end there is a cloying sweet, funky, sweet and little humid. Mouthfeel is soapy. Palate has dark toast, honey, a hint of sweet cream just on account of the abundant grain bill. Hops are bitter melon, pine sap, resin. There is a sweet floral oleander sap. Finish is medium-long and bitter.

oobawa (1197) - Tennessee, USA - APR 8, 2017
Not a bad DIPA, thick and chewy with a hefty citric-pine finish. Deep veins of caramel malt underline a solid, heavily hopped baseline, orange marmalade and toast leading up to a lengthy resinous, floral fade. Nose offers toasted malt on top of orange and hops, and the pours solid, fluffy white head atop a orange-gold body with decent lacing. Textures nice and thick. Wasnt expecting much, but Sam Adams has a pretty good Double IPA on their hands.

12 fl.oz Bottle. Pours with a light hazy orange color and a white head. Old-school nose: bitter fruits like grapefruit and citurs, nice pines and hops. The taste is as bitter fruity as the nose. Grapefruits, grapufruit-peels, citrus. I love the pines and the hops.Nice bittersweet balance. Full bodied.Good one!

It Began in Africa thousands of years ago. Green, grass. Sap, tree grind, Sam Adams house yeast .. Mild mouth, easy drinker .. It was okay, but not something Id even remotely want again .. . . I could never be a tiger.

I poured it from the bottle into a glass. It pours a pale amber with a nice, off-white head and lacing. The aroma is grapefruit and piny hops. The taste is grapefruit, lemon, bitter hops, and bread. The sourness from the citrus lingers. Theres a lot of flavor here. The higher alcohol content is also masked. This is pretty solid.

Bottle from the grocery store. This is an appreciated addition to the stable of what you can buy on mass-market shelves -- its a solid DIPA thats light years ahead of what you can get in most grocery stores. With that said, its noticeably old-school, with a lot of pine flavor and a high hop bitterness, and it doesnt compare to either the New England juice bombs or west coast bone dry DIPAs, but it knows what it is and what its trying to do, and I respect it for that.

tezarak (121) - Lengnau, SWITZERLAND - FEB 25, 2017
Poured from a 35.5cl bottle at home. Medium hazy, dark golden orange with a slightly orange tinged head. Frothy and good lacing. Caramel/honey malt base aroma topped with a hops bouquet of resin, pine and citrus. Medium to medium-strong sweetness and medium-strong bitterness. Medium to full body. Oily/smooth texture. Medium carbonation.

Not impressed by this at all. I expected an upgrade to the Rebel IPA but got a stale verison of an imperial IPA. Weak aromas and flavors of sweet caramel malt and citrus.

Shag (2977) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - FEB 18, 2017
Dark orange color with a white head. The aroma contains some citrus, pine, and caramel. The flavor is quite bitter with a malty backbone. Im getting some oranges, lemons, grapefruit, caramel and maybe some toffee even. This is definitely in the East Coast style. The finish is bitter. Overall pretty good.
