3.88/5  rDev +2.6%
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.

3.51/5  rDev -7.1%
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 -23.3%
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.

3.98/5  rDev +5.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Two finger head with poor retention on a murky amber and gold body. Caramel, candied sugar, earthy and herbal hops and orange peel. Flavor is simple and malt forward with caramel, tart orange, wood, pine resin. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Very nice hop character. Malt forward but enough hops to be fairly balanced. The booze are well hidden.
