4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
12-ounce bottle poured into glass, producing minimal white head with no lacing. Cloudy golden-orange color. Aroma is pineapple, peach and pine. Flavor is orange, grapefruit, pine needles, and a prickly hoppy zestiness. It’s a bright hop profile from the four-hop cocktail. Body is moderate to full; a creamy, slick mouthfeel. Exceptionally drinkable DIPA, especially for the ABV.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a slightly hazy, copper-gold. with smallish head. Aroma has citrus (lemon!) notes and piney hops. Flavor is full of citrus and hops, with a quite significant alcohol burn to it (the one drawback noted). Otherwise, not bad.

I absolutely love this. Full of fruity hips, mostly grapefruit, in both the aroma and the body. Nice bittering hops at the back end. Excellent beer.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Muddy Waters with Johnston crew. Chalice/tulip style pour. Hazy and cloudy deep orange with a golden tinge. Solid lacing and a quarter finger white head. Aroma is heavy citrus with some pine resin characteristics as well. Taste is very bright and fresh with plenty of elements of citrus (grapefruit) and a dank quality towards the end and at the finish. Beautiful mouthfeel with a slight oily/resiny lean. This is how a double IPA should be made. Highly recommended.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap (One Pint, Helsinki)
Sweet mashy DIPA aroma, fruity, citrussy, piney, a bit in-ya-face. Taste kinda what you’d expect given the aroma, but the in-ya-face aspect is toned down appreciably. Almost lightish palate with zesty bite and carbon dioxide. Certainly a bit brash, but drinkability remarkably there. Finish a little soapy, piney, and zesty. Almost enjoyed this DIPA, that’s how good it is!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap! Amber, bit of white foam. Definitely feels like an IPA, has a strong fruity malt body, some caramel even - and lots of fruity hops, ripe fruits. Tastes also mainly fruity and a bit sweet, hops are also there creating some balance. One thing I am not getting AT ALL is coffee. Where did it go? Very enjoyable as a nicely balanced and sweet-malty DIPA, but really was hoping for some stronger coffee notes. Or reading the description again, maybe there actually shouldn’t be any coffee??
