Marijuana all over this one. In the aroma and it tasted like I had a super skunky nugget in my mouth. More over, the pine and resin is what dominated the aroma, giving it that herbal quality. Taste was piney, with also lots of citrus and bitterness as well.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured into a tulip, the appearance was a semi-copper color with a slight transparency about it. Quarter finger white foamy head swiftly dissipated. Mild stringy lace, sliding.
The aroma had some dried grassy hops, toast, citrus rind -sweetness, some leather and a touch of earthiness. Malt base was there, slightly stiff.
The flavor leaned into the sweetness of the malts and tried to blend in the hops, somewhat bitter and sweet, but that mainly stayed separated. Aftertaste was malty. Finish was slightly sticky.
The feel was just a tad under medium bodied with a decent sessionability about it. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt fine.
Overall, west coast styled DIPA? Maybe, in an odd sort of way. Old school DIPA? Perhaps. Enjoyable? Somewhat. Would I have again - only if someone offered me. It wasn’t too far off.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at the brewery. Deep golden with off white head. Hop forward aroma gets lost in the palate where inadequate malt backbone allows the alcohol to take over...

1.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Slight BO smell in there. Clear pale yellow from a tap. Flat and watery but yet a very bitter drink. Probably could be used as cleaning fluid, a little volatile onthe palate. Except for the lack of viscosity, this stuff is quite on style for a double IPA.
