4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 ounce bottle porous a orange amber color with a ton of hop particles suspended in it. Pine and floral aromas. Moderate off-white head that dissipates quickly. Full-bodied medium carbonation. A bit on the malty side. A lot of residual sweetness.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle.
Pours a hazy deep amber with a decent head.
Flavor has more citrus and is overall more fruity than the aroma. Good balancing malt load. Nicely balanced and soft for style.

"earthy and sweet malt, juicy hops, but perhaps not quite enough. a decent IIPA, but nothing I’d go out of my way for. pretty good fresh, otherwise skip."

Pours a cloudy orange colour with a white head. Aroma is malt, fruit and some wood with hops. Taste is medium sweet leading to a hoppy finish. OK.

Pours a cloudy orange/amber with a smallish, but lasting head. Nice aromas of pine and fruit. Taste is full and well-balanced. Starts fruity and ends with some bitterness. Good beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
An orange-amber pour into the glass has a foamy head that leaves spiderweb lacing. The nose is of citrus and sweet malt. Caramel in the mouth, along with orange and tangerine, light rind/peel notes, some stone fruits (peach?), and a woody earthen hop bitter to finish. The balance here is very good, hiding the ABV wonderfully (only noted at the very end of the finish). It’s smooth and very drinkable, with a definitive juicy palate, medium body and soft carbonation. Although the complexity and substantial mouthfeel lean toward a fuller body, the balance is so nice to provide a very easy quaff. Cheers!

Bottle from Archive Beer Boutique January 2014. Quite malty for a double IPA and the flavour is thick and cloying.

An aroma of honey and golden brown color invite you in. As you take your first sip expecting a big hop punch in the face this beer mellows out and goes into a smokey like flavor of malt.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Hazy, caramel color, slight head, thin lace. The aroma is bad. It smells fishy. It’s possible that this bottle has gone skunky. The flavor was better than the aroma. Rich, sweet malt with strong, citrus hops. Oily mouthfeel. I might try it again to find out if I just got a bad bottle.
