4.05/5  rDev -1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

22oz brown bomber with a vintage date on the label.

A- Amazing off-white froth, even though the bubbles are big the head stays around. Lightly hazed tawny hue.

S- Ripe fruit ... suggestions of peaches and mangoes. Big herbal, soft pine and sweet citric hop aroma with a faint buttery smell in the back.

T&M- Luscious & smooth and full bodied. A growing intensity of bitterness with each sip shows off a brash citric and herbal oily flavor. Hint of diacetyl gets lost in the mix, which is probably for the better. Big warming alcohol flails around with ripe fruit and a kiss of solvent flavor. Bready malt is thick enough to keep this beer balanced. Finishes with a long lingering herbal hop bitterness.

D- I love Double IPAs and this one certainly makes the mark, easy to drink @ 10% abv as well. Paired well with some sharp goat cheddar.

4.1/5  rDev +0.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Bottle purchased at Middle Ages Brewing Company in Syracuse, NY. Poured into a Rooster Fish tulip.

Pours a dark orange, with a billowing 2 inch head, and really good strings of lacing down the glass.

Smells include grassy hops, pine sap, pine needles, honey, and sweet malt.

The taste is similar. This straddles the line between Imperial English IPA and American Double IPA- lots of characteristics from both are in this. There is an enhanced malt flavor, very honey-like, with some dry crackery malt like characteristics. There is a huge hop slant to this beer though- lots of grapefruit, pine, and fresh cut grass all battle out. This is a huge IPA, with tons of flavors all battling each other. It could be slighly better melded together, and cleaner, but you can't deny it tastes good.

Medium bodied, sticky mouthfeel, finishes sweet. The alcohol is present a little bit, but doesn't detract too much.

This is a great DIPA from Middle Ages. Due to their English leaning and yeast use (Ringwood), this doesn't taste like a normal DIPA, but it still quite tasty and I enjoyed it.

4.11/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A-Clear ruby orange, two finger white head, with lots of lacing.

S-Citrus, dirt, grassy, pine tad bit of bread, nice hop notes.

T-Starts with some citrus, grass, bread, nice bitterness.

M-Lighter to medium in body, some hop bite.

O-A regular run of the mill DIPA. Yeah it is good, but in such a saturated market this does nothing to stand out. That being said ~7 dollars a bomber is a nice price.

3.64/5  rDev -11%
look: 3.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a cloudy golden amber color with a finger thick white head. Smell is pretty weak. Mostly floral hops. Not much else. Taste is mostly citrus and floral hops with a good amount of bitterness and slight sweetness. Not much else really. The alcohol is covered up pretty well though by the bitterness. Mouth is very crisp, but maybe a bit too carbonated and heavy. Overall, an okay brew, but lacks in flavor.

4.23/5  rDev +3.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Fairly clear copper with a reddish hue and white creamy foam head. Very good retention and lacing.

S: Caramel, earthy funky pine, tart and tangy grapefruit, and lingering floral notes. All aromas work well together.

T: Fruity and floral hops balanced very well with a soft caramel-like malt backbone. Hints of dark fruits. Incredibly smooth with alcohol very well hidden.

M: Full bodied with a higher carbonation that works well here. Creamy and viscous with some appealing prickly carbonation.

D: Very good DIPA that is probably one of the smoothest and well balanced DIPA's I've had in a long time.
