Shipwrecked pours a hazy orange color with a couple fingers of head. The aroma is very piney, with a touch of citrus and some heavier caramel malts. On the tongue, some candied citrus hops show up first, but are very quickly washed away by piney hops and caramel malts. Just a bit of the caramel malts and candied hops hang out for the finish. The mouthfeel is a bit lighter than I'd like for the caramel malt strength, and the drinkability is good. Overall, Shipwrecked is a pretty good double IPA. You've gotta do better than pretty good though to make it in the current IPA market.

Amber reddish hue with a light wisp of white head. Great clarity. Pine like hop aroma is fairly prevalent along with a bit of a citrus aroma. The taste is a blend of pine and citrus hops. There's primarily a citrus hop flavor in the fade. Mouth is thick and sticky which is true to style.

On tap, poured into a snifter.
Appearance - orange, if not an amber hue; mild cream head that leaves adequate lacing.
Smell - some citrus fruit, but more pine. Agree with another reviewer that this comes off more as a barley wine nose vs a DIPA.
Taste - hop forward, strong malt presence, warming alcohol; what you expect from the style.
Feel - medium body, not as easy to drink as many other West Coast DIPA's.
Overall - pretty average for the style to me, and well below average for the region.
Serving type: on-tap
