This poured out as a slightly hazy orange color with a nice white head on top. The retention is good as well as some lacing on the glass. The smell of some moderate hops on the nose.. a mix of earthy and citrusy. There is a bit of malt sweetness as well. The taste has a bit of pale malts and a touch of spicy citrus in the finish. The mouthfeel is pretty thick, it's got a good body to it with a decent amount of carbonation. There is a bit of boozy heat too on this which is kind of surprising. Overall I thought this was a pretty good DIPA. Not the best by any means but still not bad.

You know your favorite double IPA? The one where the nose reminds you of walking through a field of ripening hops? This ain't it. Sweet with insufficient hopping, this appears to be a trashy little addition to a beer of the month club, with a goal of achieving sales rather than excellence. Ugh. BAD BEER.

Amber hued with a fairly hazy complexion. An inch thick eggshell white head resting on top. Light Brussels lacing. Hop aroma is somewhat earthy and dominates the nose. The taste is earthy to somewhat piney hops. There's plenty of malt to back up the hop presence. The mouth is a bit chalky but fairly easy to quaff considering the strength.
