3.88/5 rDev -5.1%
Hazy orange color with a small amount of foam that dissipates pretty quickly but leaves some nice lace sticking to the glass. A decent aroma of pine and grapefruit. Could have been a little stronger but not bad. The flavor is pretty complex with a good mix of the usual suspects. Some grapefruit and orange peel flavors with and underlying herbal/pine quality. Maybe a little amarillo hops but I'm not positive. The mouthfeel is as expected, medium body and a little warm from the ABV but it's restrained. A nice refreshing, dry finish helped make this a very drinkable beer. Overall a nice reflection of the style and worth a try if you're in the region.

Finger of white creamy head and fizzy yellow body. Unassuming.
Nose is grapefruit, citrus, and hops.
Taste is intersting-- tease of sweetness at the front that comes back in the middle. This is of course interleaved with huge helpings of hops. The sweetness is apple and some honey-- the hops are full-bodied, not too harsh.
Mouthfeel is just kinda fizze and boring. Prickly, even.
For the style, good, but I don't love IPAs and this hasn't changed my mind. This would go great with food though-- think chicken pasta with cream sauce.

4.22/5 rDev +3.2%
A - clear, golden orange in color; lacey head on the glass
S - citrus smelly hops; strong but not overwhelming.
T - hoppy, but balanced; the hoppy herbal favored is noticed, but followed by grainy, bread-like maltiness
M - medium carbonation, slight after taste
D - This is a easy drinking double IPA despite the 9.3% alcohol, it is quite smooth and probably my favorite of what was on tap.

3.9/5 rDev -4.6%
a: shaker pint serving, coppery brown in color, capped with an average white head that shows nice lace
s: big, rustic pine resin and bold citrus aroma with an earthy toffee body, okay but a bit underwhelming in terms of complexity
m: light-medium carbonation, body around medium-full
t: earthy caramel and toffee body, moderate sugars, a little leafy or woody and a touch buttery, sticky dark pine and grapefruit hop profile, moderate bitterness
d: easy enough, nice beer but easily out of the top-tier of the style
pleasantly surprised to find this at the Galaxy Hut, Arlington

4.15/5 rDev +1.5%
Appearance: super light yellow color. A finger of a white head that leaves a lacing on the sides. Perfect clarity
Smell: lots of tropical hops, mango pineapple and citrus along with some bitter and resiny hops. Slight sweetness most like honey to me. Strong bready malt background
Taste: opens with hops. Varies from mango, lemon and citrus to bitter and resin. A honey like smoothness takes you to a bready malt background.
Mouthfeel: drinks smooth but lots of bitterness is left behind.
Overall: a tasty and well balanced dipa. Definitely worthy of a try.

4.03/5 rDev -1.5%
Appearance: light orange in color with a 1" head that broke apart quickly. Some lace developed.
Smell: pine, grapefruit, and some malt sweetness was very pleasant on the nose.
Taste: caramel, grapefruit, soft orange, pine, big biting bitterness, and some alcohol create a big beer.
Mouthfeel: medium-heavy in beer. Lightly crisp to start, smooth and dry at the finish. Long aftertaste as the bitterness and alcohol lingered in the mouth.
Drinkability: this was a slow drinking beer. Alcohol levels and biting bitterness keeps this to a one per session beer. Enjoyable.

On draft at the brewery.
A=a clear orange color, 1 finger head that didn't stick around too much, decent lacing
S=Hops, hops, and more hops. Smells a bit more subdued and less powerful than other DIPAs, with a bit of malt making an appearance
T=Simple, yet good. Biscuity malt hits the toungue first but is quickly overwhelmed by the hops, yet the hops don't overwhelm the palate. 9.3 percent ABV is completely hidden.
M=the weak point, it is full bodied but the lower carbonation level almost made it feel a bit flat
D=This one is dangerous, the good taste, great bitterness level and sneaky ABV make this beer one that can be put down.
Good offering from Blue Mountain
