look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Extremely light golden color. Slightly hazy but vibrant overall. One finger head with aggressive pour.

S: Beautiful, one of the best aromas I've ever gotten. Load of astringent fruity hops. Grapefruit, Papaya, Prune juice.

T: the taste matches the smell, except even more fruit. Biting bitterness all the way through, but especially on the back. It lingers on the tongue for quite a bit even thought it's not a "syrupy" hop presence. Reminds me of the same hop profile as 'sucks' except bigger and better. Hardly any malt.

M: Medium to thick-- Slick and oily at first, breaks down into slightly sticky lingering bitterness, near perfect.

O: My new favourite IPA-- severely underrated. I put this above Hopslam in a heartbeat.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a snifter.

A: Hazy deep golden yellow with one-finger, white, foamy head that lasted a couple of minutes. Nice lacing.

S: Hops, pine and citrus. Sweet caramel malt.

T: Moderate sweetness and solid hop bitterness. The bitterness is up front and the sweet malt follows. Matches the nose. Very good.

M: Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Slightly dry.

O: This is a really good Double. I was surprised to see 9.4% ABV - I couldn't tell.
