2.6/5  rDev -30.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Pour is transprent light copper with small bubbles on the tan colored head. Nose is extremely sweet and oxidized. Tons of sugar, caramel, prunes with a sticky and resinous hop and faint citrus behind. Taste is much of the same, sweet and sugary with some cardboard paper and a faint touch of citrus. Full body and syrupy with a heavy feel and weak carbonation.

3.3/5  rDev -11.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pours a cloudy amber with a hint of blonde and a two-finger head that fades down to lacing in my glass.

Light and citrusy with with a good touch of malt. The aroma might be somewhat diluted as I was expecting something more pungent.

Tasty with some mild citrus notes and a chewy, sweet malt texture. Alcohol isn't overwhelming to the palate.

Lingering citrus and sweet malt make up the mouthfeel. I do find it unusual that there isn't a bigger hop bite despite the ABV. I love the emphasis on aroma hops but I always expect more out of a DIPA.

Worth a try but I would probably want to try it fresh on a tap next time.

On tap at Max's today.

The beer pours a fairly dark, amber gold color with pretty good head retention and fair lacing. On the nose, I get considerable tropcial fruit, which lets me know this is not going to be a dry, west coast style of IPA. There's some underlying citrus as well, but the tropical fruit definitely dominates. To no great surprise, this DIPA is quite sweet on the palate, with a boatload of tropical fruit (peaches, papaya, etc.). There's some noticeable bitterness in the finish, but the sweet malt really dominates in this beer. Mouthfeel is medium bodied to full, with a long, sweet, slightly alcoholic finish.

A decent beer, but I just don't dig this sweet, alcoholic style.

Poured into an imperial nonic a deeply hazed auburn color with a sticky 1/2 finger slightly off white head atop,I love the murky deep orange brews.Aromas were a little light for the style in my opinion with juicy tropical fruit and grassy hops over top of a sugary sweet malt base,the alcohol provides a little sweetness but is not in your face.Subtle is a good word for the palate...for the style,it's pleasant enough with overripe tropical fruit and grassy tones but they don't jump out at ya,the sweetness is not overpowering wich is a good thing.This is close to being really really good but it is not as brash as say an American brewery would make it.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

On tap at TJ's in Paoli. Lightly hazed deep and dark coppery gold with a small, quickly settling off-white head. Minimal lacing. Lots of malt and toffee in the nose; lesser grapefruit, pineapple, and herbal notes. Hints of booze. Surpringly sweet aroma.

Taste follows suit closely and reminds me more of a barleywine than anything else. Brown sugar toffee, caramel and toasted malt dominate, with a prominent booziness and a late emerging hop bitterness. Herbal and pine aspects intermingle with sweet fruity notes, becoming a lasting bitterness in the aftertaste. Still, the overall impression is of a sweet and powerfully alcoholic barleywine.

Medium full body with smooth and creamy carbonation. This is a big and bruising beer and the antithesis of the dry and elegant west coast DIPA's.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

On tap at the Craft Beer Co, Clerkenwell, served in a half pint 'tulip' style glass

light orange to gold in colour, clear and with minimal head and lacing

smells hoppy and with emphasis on citrus notes, particularly grapefruit

not the strongest of double IPA's, and not overly bitter/high IBU, but distinct citrus tang, as with the smell, predominately grapefruit

mouthfeel - tart, refreshing, dry-ish aftertaste

a most pleasant "pick me up" on an afternoons session !

Served on tap at Mugs Alehouse in Brooklyn, NY

A: Pours a slightly hazy golden orange in color with a thin off-white head. The head reduces to patches on the surface and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate lacing is observed.

S: Lots of grapefruit hops, maybe even intense grapefruit hops, with something that is slightly sour or funky.

T: The taste really follows the smell on this beer, the flavor is dominated by the grapefruit hops and there is a very pleasant lingering bitterness in the finish. Somewhere in the finish there is also a slight hint of some sourness.

M: Medium bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: Not quite a hoppy or bitter as I was expecting with this DIPA but rather more approachable with the interesting hints of sourness to differentiate it. The less bitter finish than some others in the style make this one much easier to drink and really enjoyable.

4.15/5  rDev +11.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: The beer is very hazy copper in color. It poured with a thin off white head that died down but consistently left a thin ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: There are strong aromas of fresh grapefruit in the nose along with a bit of sourness.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste seems almost like you are scooping out and eating bits of fresh grapefruit flesh.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a quite chewy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very citrusy and chewy for the style. The alcohol is also very well hidden and you would never know that it’s this strong from the taste.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

The beer is clear orange, has an off-white head, little lacing, but curtains.

The smell is pines, grass, hay, flowers and mango.

Tasting of sweet bread, coffee, lemons, pine-apples and pine resin.

Medium carbonation, soft with small bubbles, a huge body and a dry finish.

Very well done and balanced.
