4.13/5  rDev -0.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A- Pours and head rises slowly. Thin tan head cover the top and fades pretty fast. A murky amber/brown body.
S- Very nice aroma! Grass, and pine hops. Maybe a few hints of citrus too. Sweet caramel is hiding under the hops. I am surprised how well the sweetness and alcohol is covered up in the aroma.
T- First sip thoughts- Hmm very tasty!
Big hop flavor with blend of the same kind of hops as in aroma. The bitterness builds up on tip and mid tongue. Really numbs the tongue from a nice big bitterness. Slowly the alcohol warms up the back of the throat but does take a bit. Sweet caramel does come through but not near as overwhelming as I was expecting (like Unearthly). Nice dry aftertaste too. The pine does come through nicley and the alcohol tickles the tongue a little but alcohol isn't near as strong as you would think.
M- Full body with low carbonation.
D- I think it is very good. I wasn't expecting to much just being as high in alcohol as it is. Very tasty and I wouldn't mind drinking more of this at all.

3.78/5  rDev -9.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Pours a rich, perfect amber, into a traditional pint glass. Head quickly dissipates, and there is little lacing. Usual IPA scents of pine, citrus, and a hint of honey, breadiness, and certainly detectable booziness. Taste is similarly citrusy, with a more heavy breadiness component that lends an overt sweetness to the citrus. Despite a heavier boozy note on the tongue, it is much less bitter than expected. This contributes to a heavy but balanced and not overpowering mouthfeel. Recommended, for a higher ABV, yet very drinkable, double IPA.
