3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From the tap at the Brewery: Beautiful orange/amber color, hint of haze, with a creamy head. Nutty aroma with a little bite. Assertive taste with bitter notes right up front that soften into a tangy aftertaste. Full body but creamy texture. Overall, because of it;’s assertiveness, this is probably a one or two per sitting beer, but with this beer, that’s enough. Very nice DIPA.
Can from Great Grog. Hazy amber body with a medium off-white head. Steady carbonation. Faint lacing. Aroma of blood orange and stewed tea. Flavour of bubblegum and menthol. Medium body with an oily texture. Light fizz. A bitingly bitter DIPA. Really good. Ernest (7864) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 28, 2017
Can (Aug 10, 2017 canning). Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is dark yellow to light amber. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (melon, apricot, orange, resin), with notes of onion, plastic bags, lighter note of butter. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, slightly unclean. Medium to full body, watery/velvety/syrupy texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic. brownaler (713) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - SEP 28, 2017
Kind of basic rendition that suffers from the all-too-common stink of onion and plastic. The hop aroma itself is pleasant enough, but Two Roads has a tough time making clean beers and that's still true with this one, so it's just barely average overall.
Piney hop profile with a bubbly and a sour finish. Pretty easy drinking for an imperial IPA. SanfordBrewer (1610) - Sanford, Florida, USA - SEP 25, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 25, 2017 Sour with harsh bitterness. Leafy vegetal hops. Funky spent grain malt character. Harsh piney bite. drjay44 (3858) - Salida, Colorado, USA - SEP 20, 2017
Draft. Pours a medium, slowly collapsing, off white head, with slight lacing, over a mildly hazy, light amber (SRM 6) body......nose is pine, resin, slight fruits, primarily citrus in tone, mild malts, balance to the hops......taste is mildly sweet with hints of caramel from the malts, pine, resin, mild fruits with orange, lemon tones, finishing with a moderate to heavy hop bitterness, balance to the hops.......mouth feel, medium slightly sticky body, mild alcohol, moderate carbonation. This is a rather typical I/DIPA, with the main surprise being no allium from the Summit hop used. BJCP 9/3/16/4/7

UPDATED: SEP 15, 2017 can at home. This has a biscuity malt to it. This is not very hoppy as the can suggests. it does hide it alcohol content very well. This feels like I'm drinking a English bitter than a imperial IPA shrubber85 (11672) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - SEP 9, 2017
Can. Orange biscuit malt and earthy/dank pine and grapefruit peel aroma. Hazy amber with moderate head. Moderately sweet orange, biscuit malt, and moderately strong bitter dank pine and grapefruit peel flavor. Good body and balance. Nice. JBell14 (156) - Chelmsford, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 5, 2017
Pours an opaque caramel. Malty body with pine on the back end . Not as bitter as the can suggests

Can from Vino. This is a big full on IPA. Right from opening the can you can tell it's a big hoppy monster. A huge waft of hops from popping it. Deep citrus, greasy pine, big malt. Pours auburn, full head. Mouth filling, big pine hit and lasting bitterness, loads of citrus. Dryness, layers of hops, some malt. Jesus this is good. hershiser2 (3702) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - AUG 4, 2017
Bottle from Total Wine in Fredericksburg. Pours clear medium gold with a dusting of a head. Aroma is citrus peel, green pepper, minor floral and pine notes. Flavor is big. Immediate strong citrus, bubblegum, pine, tropical fruit, all right in your face. And wow, it’s a nice combination. Nice, long lingering citrus without being overly bitter. Good work.
