look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Poure from a 12 oz. bottle
A - looks like a pilsner but for the slight haze, retains and extremely sparse head
S - a good blend with light citrus hints, but I get that from most IPAs
T - pretty good for a DIPA (see my disclaimer below); the aftertase is lasting and is bitter,but wihtout an unpleasant bite
F - pretty smooth
O - As far as IPAs/DIPAs go, this one is fairly good, and it went well with lunch and my grilled reuben.

Disclaimer: I am generally not an IPA fan and don't typically order them when out; that said, I keep trying them out of curiosity and try to avoid my preferences when evaluating

A: pours bronze like orange with minimal white foam which resolved to a steady trace along the edge of the glaze
S: A hoppy bouquet of citrus (lemon>orange), zest, pineapple and a medley of tropical fruits, hint of malt
T: A lot of citrus up front, grapefruit, lemon zest, hint of pine before malt softens the bitterness with only a mild aftertaste of grapefruit
Mouth: Carbonation lightens the body so its not too syrupy, good palate cleansing acidity and pushes the floral/fruit notes forward. Alcohol notes barely noticed beneath the complexity of the flavors
Overall: My tastes tend to favor maltier, darker beers – but I have to admit this is one of the finest American Style Double/Imperial IPA. Great beer at a reasonable price point.

12oz Bottle from Bottle Caps in Watertown NY for $5

Appearance - Gold colour with a large size white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some great lacing. The head lasted for around 4-5 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Hops, apricots, grapefruit, malts

Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste apricot, grapefruit, and malts. There is also some apricots, hops and a grassy herbal flavour.

Overall - Lots of hop bitterness and the booze is really well hidden. Tastes a lot like a hopped up version of their Centennial IPA. An above average DIPA.
