3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. The pour was a hazy golden yellow with an average sized white creamy head that reduced down to some puddled residue, which clung onto the edges of the glass and lasted throughout creating some excellent streaky lacing.
The aroma was strong of a floral hop, a grain malt and a soapy yeast with notes of grapefruit, orange and a bit of honey.
The taste was bitter and mildly sweet with a nice fruity citrus note (orange) and a hint of honey in the beginning, and then became much bitterer and had a nice hoppy grapefruit finish. The flavor lasted a good longtime letting the taste of bitter hops and a light sweet citrus flavor combine on the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was just a shade beyond light in body with a bold dry texture and a lively carbonation.
Overall a very flavorful DIPA with a nice sweet fruity twist and the perfect balance of hops, which totally concealed the high alcohol content.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours golden orange with a fluffy head which soon settles. Aroma is all kinds of tropical fruit like orange, pinapple and passion fruit. There is also pine and resin along with a smooth caramel note. Although very sweet tasting it is perfectly offset by the bitterness of the hops and has a fluffy yet oily texture in the mouth. This really is a classic double IPA. Fantastic beer!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bright citrus and floral aroma, pours a clear amber with a thin white head. Slightly sweet beginning, with tropical fruit notes. This fades to a slightly astringent bitter finish, with the alcohol well hidden. Slick mouthfeel, and full bodied. A very solid IIPA.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear amber color with 3 fingers off white head. Explosion of hops at nose (grapefruit, orange, tangerine, orange peel), tropical fruits (mango, papaya, pineapple) and a slight caramel note from the malts. In the mouth, it starts with a huge malty backbone, then some fruitiness and a very long hoppy finish together with a nice warmth from the alcohol. Bold, creamy, full body, somehow oily texture. Overall a great great DIPA!
