Where is the bite? I need that bite.
A: Cloudy brown/red nearing cider under the light color. Small head holds the entire glass with very strong lacing.
S: Barleywine? Less hoppy and more rounded than expected. Could be mistaken for Bigfoot all day long. Alcohol is definitely there.
T: Once again, barelywine. Where is the hop bite? Sure there is some serious hop bitterness, but it's well rounded and there is no bite. Salt/garlic/onion super-hop flavor.
M: Chewy, oily, medium-high carbonation from a soft pour.
O: Would buy again and enjoy, but not what I expected. I can buy a six-pack of Sierra Nevada Torpedo for less money than a bomber of this and the Torpedo would be just as, if not more, enjoyable.

Poured into a 13 oz tulip glass, not sure of the bottled date. Pours a bright orange with a one inch fluffy white head, that leaves behind some lace. Smell is tangerine, grapefruit, pine, and hard apple candy. Taste is very aggressive grapefruit, with a supporting role for the other flavors. Medium body, nice amount of life, a little dry, and drinks easy if you like aggressive IPAs. I like it, Ruination and Hop Wallup you will like this, but it does have a larger body then the other 2.

Pours a bold gold, amber, with lots of head that falls to lacing that holds for a while.
Smell is faint floral hops and pine. Kinda meh for a double IPA.
Taste is not too bad with pine and citrus, mildly bitter, with a decent malt backbone that can hit you in the face if you've had a few beers already.
Feel is just about right with a middle of the road slickness and medium carbonation.
Overall this is what I expected from this brewery for a 9% 2xIPA , and its definitely worth the price I paid, but its nothing out of the ordinary really. It's sort of blah in terms of double IPAs. It needs aroma hops and just a bit more malt.

Poured from a bomber into a perfect pint glass. 12/1
Light orange amber appearance, light foam. Hazy throughout. Strong grapefruit pine nose. Floral aromatic. Sharp lemon, open bitter, slight harshness that ebbs. Big grapefruit taste couple with a willing bitter. Bright and juicy. Firm carbonation and really strong bitter.

A - Pours a shallow copper gold and gold fusion. Nice 2 finger thick head.
S - Very subtle in the nose. When I think of DIPA's, I imagine, big everything. This has very subtle breathes of oranges, pineapple, mango, grapefruit, bit of a pine towards the end of the sniff.
T - Everything happens very fast with the taste. It's a second of pineapple, mango, grapefruit, then ends with that familiar dryness from the hops. Not too bitter, nice complexity from the hops. I just wish this had more dimensions from the hops, idk, it's missing something along the stickyness.
M - This is a big beer that cloaks the palate, thick, silky, oily, slight burning sensation from the carbonation.
O - This beer is great in subtly amazing in terms of the taste and smell. My only complaint is it's too subtle at times. Other than that, it's refreshing, nice ABV makes this ideal for sessions and it paired well with some medium heated food. All in all, this is a keeper in my book. But I wouldn't rush to the store to buy it.
