3.88/5  rDev +2.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

bottle into duvel glass

appearance: cloudy burnt orange, unfiltered, with a thick 1 finger white head, great head retention

smell: citrus, grapefruit, apple, lemon, floral notes, yeasty

taste: very resinous, earthy hops, malt heavy for a double IPA, you taste the alcohol pretty good. Some caramel, coconut and vanilla undertones, with a bitter warm finish.

mouthfeel: very carbonated and full bodied

overall: A good take on the Imperial IPA but far from my favorite. Would buy again but there are a lot better options in this category, as it is less hoppy and more alcohol and malt heavy than I prefer.

Serving type: bottle

3.51/5  rDev -7.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a cloudy medium orange with a good sized and fizzy white head. Head fades fairly quickly but has great retention. Some thick, fluffy lines of lacing are left behind.

S: Sweet grains primarily with some mild citrus fruits kicking in. Not sure how old this one is (no bottle date) but the malt definitely dominates here. Like sniffing candied oranges.

T: A little bit of sharp citrus, oranges and a little grapefruit. Definitely a little "stale though", probably a couple months old. Sweet grains in the middle and into the finish. Brief hint of bitter resinous hops with a little citrus in there. Nice drying lingering orange peel in the finish.

M: Medium bodied, decent carb.

O: Not a bad double IPA but definitely missing some hops. Just kinda plain and meh, nothing really stands out. Not really offensive, just middle-of-the-road.

2.9/5  rDev -23.5%
look: 4.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

A - Pours a copperish-gold with a two finger off-white head. Left a good amount of lacing.

S - A huge malt bill up front, followed by some lemon and orange.

T - Pineapple and juicy apple at first, followed by some maltiness. A bit on the bitter side and it tastes kind of flat.

M - Heavy bodied with light to medium carbonation.

O - Overall, reminded me of a slightly better Hop Rocket. I don't think I'd have it again.
