look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 1.75 | feel: 1 | overall: 2

Pours a amber colored orange with a light brown hues through out. A soft white head with good retention. Mostly cloudy but ok.

The nose is hop forward with more of a West Coast IPA feel. Big piney and everygreen notes. A big cat piss aroma, hello Simco, that is a deterrent than anything else. Some minor citrus and noticeable yeast notes. Some esters, rose peddles, but not over the top.

The taste is more hop forward as well. Actually more of a hop tea than a beer. Seriously would like ANY balance on this. A hint of bitterness and NO body or malt taste to even try to balance. The piney notes come out along with the super cat piss flavors. Some minor citrus but

The body was dry. Really under balanced and limited. Some carbonic bite but this has more to do with the no body than anything else. Overall hugely disappointed in this. No balance at all and was a serious hop tea.

A: Pours a hazed burnt orange color. A large, rocky white head forms that gently recedes. Some lace is left behind.
S: Big pine, and resinous hops up front. Bitter grapefruit rind, burnt and caramelized sugars. Lingering, nondescript bitterness last forever.
T: Like the nose, big piny hops. Very resinous and bitter. Grapefruit rind, burnt caramel sugars and lingering bitterness that lasts all day.
M/D: A full, chewy, and resinous body. Big bitterness and big alcohol. This is not something I particularly want to come back to.

Yep, this succeeds in what it tries to be. Which is a huge IPA. Not something I am a big fan of though. For me, nice to try once. That is it.

On tap at Hops and Pie. I was glad to try this on tap because I suspected it wasn't worth the $17 they are asking for a bottle and it wasn't. Shocking. Dark orange color but not amber. good lacing and head. Aroma is indeed hoppy, pine, ok. Flavor is also hoppy but there is a malt component vying with the hops and this ain't no West Coast as far as I can tell. Is this a super hoppy IPA? Yes. Is it as good as something from the West Coast? No. The fact they charge $17 for a bottle of this is insulting.

Had June 11 at Cedar Creek Pub in Aurora, Colorado, on tap.
Copper color with modest head.
Straw and floral hop aroma, light pine.
Moderate carbonation and big mouthfeel.
Bitter root hops, cream of tartar, some pine sap, alcohol. Tasty and bold but too much astringency year after year, tap or bottle.

Growler shared by womencantsail, thanks Andrew.

A: Translucent orange with a frothy white head.

S: Nice tangerine presence with notes of orange, grapefruit, and resinous pine (strong). Malt is bready with some caramel and helps to balance the hops. Some floral notes and a touch of alcohol.

T: Orange, tangerine, grapefruit, pine, and caramel. Malt provides balance. Lower moderate bitterness with well hidden booze.

M: Medium in body with moderate carbonation. Mouthfeel is sticky and dry.

Overall: This was good stuff. A little maltier than I like my Double IPAs, but enjoyable nonetheless.

A brownish ruby pour with a dense head gave promise of a wonderful beer. The head faded a bit to leave a nice lacing.

Aroma was fairly balanced between sweet, caramel malt and piney hops. Some citrus notes are hidden in the background. This is a hop-full beer.

Hops seem to fight over one another for attention. It's a weird mix of pine, citrus, orange zest, resin and grass. None are dominant and the caramel finish seems to trump them all.

Feel was a bit light given the plethora of hops used. Is this bad? I don't think so, but not as biting as other 2xipa's .
Good drinking. It didn't last long...
