   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 11/20
glennmastrange (2742) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - MAY 29, 2015
Bottle. Moderate cereal for the malt, light orange and soap for the hops and yeast. Head is average size, frothy, off-white with fair lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is hazy medium amber orange. Flavor is lightly sweet and acidic, then finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, slick with a lively carbonation and a moderately astringent finish. The mix of sweetness and astringency in the this DIPA is a little off-putting.

jredmond (7861) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 16, 2015
Bottle at Half Marathon Tasting - May 16th. Pours a bright reddish orange with thin white lacing. Aroma is spice, fruity caramel and lots of belgian characteristics - spicy fruit, banana, clove, etc. Mouthfeel is medium to soft, not abrasive really, but lots of banana and spice. Some metal as well. $2 beer?

Beersmithbacon (111) - San Luis Rey, California, USA - MAY 14, 2015
Some hops but very little for xxipa. Same with flavor no big hop oiliness nor much of a malt character. Light and lean in mouthfeel.

notalush (5774) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 26, 2015
Bomber as Boatswain - hazy orange - decent lace - outside of the appearance, its pretty uninspiring - watery, stale - smells like orange juice, stale malts, circus peanuts (the candy) - flavor is sweet, but also somewhat sourish - minimal hops presence - juice fruit gum - kind of metallic finish - all over the place and not that good.

euniceradio (494) - Worthington, Minnesota, USA - APR 17, 2015
Labeled as Boatswain Double IPA. Poured hazy amber. Light head. Aroma of caramel, OJ and sweet grain malts. Taste is 97% malt and alcohol, 3% faint hops. Tastes like an Irish Red / Light Brown Ale hybrid. WHO THOUGHT THIS WAS A DIPA???? Decided to rate as anything but an IPA.

BrewHaMeister (442) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 4, 2015
Bottle pours amber with a beige head and little lacing. Aromas heavy with malt and dough with little our no hop. Not sure this beer is categorized correctly. Taste is pretty good but this is not a DPIA.

Was very disappointed in this DIPA. Was expecting something more. It was a malt bomb with not that noticeable of a hop character. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
