Clear golden pour with small off white headf. Aroma of malts, caramel, grapefruit and hops. Taste of caramel, corn, malts and slight hops on the finish. Medium carbonation, finish is quite syrupy and cloying, almost like artificial flavoring in this. Alcohol well hidden behind the sweetness. pdx77 (1483) - Oregon, USA - JUN 19, 2013
From Trader Joe bottle labeled Boatswain Double IPA. Deep golden color. Slight hop aroma. Flavor is caramel malt sweet, with hints of tropical fruit hops and grassy bitterness. Mouthfeel is viscous. Bit too much alcohol aftertaste. pdx76 (651) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 19, 2013
Bottle from trader joes - pours a cloudy copper with medium white head. Nose is light citrus/pine/booze. Taste of caramel and booze with slight hop backend. Sweeter than expected.

From a bomber. Pours cloudy copper with a very thin head. Strong taste of maly, corn, sugar. Hard to drink. Medium body and carbonation. Smells like malt, alcohol, and fermenting fruit. Had to pour out the rest. JHeath99 (1680) - Warner Robins, Georgia, USA - JUN 15, 2013
Bottle poured into a glass. Weird aroma not usually found, almost like a sweet corn and alcohol. Pours a hazy golden with almost no head. Very little complexity in taste.

home. Pours lightly hazy copper with a small, frothy off-white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is apple and pear fruity esters, stale Pils malt, and earthy hops. Flavor is dirty hops and skunked malt with an alcoholic character and a sweet finish. Medium body and carbonation.
Bottle in KC picked up at Trader Joes. Pours a dark orange appearance with a light, cream colored head. Light mineral, bland bready, cracker malty aroma. Somewhat soapy, light citrusy, a bit dry, tangy, bready flavor. Not overly offensive but quite boring and little hops to suggest it’s a Double IPA. edgallow (4629) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 7, 2013
22 oz bottle pours hazy amber with a off white head. Aroma of sweet malts and floral. Taste is mostly the malts, not much hops.

220z served into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint glass.
A - Pours a clear brassy copper with 3 fingers of white foam. Good lacing.
S - Big malt presence, caramel, sweet bread, slight grassy, some metallic aroma.
T - Sweet pale and caramel malt dominates with some light grassy hops underneath, doughy yeast, with hints of citrus on the finish.
M - Full bodied, thick feel, medium carbonation.
This is a one and done. Lackluster with low hop presence. Not bad but not good and very forgettable.
