look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

poured from 12oz bottle into standard pint glass. Bottled on date of May 2013, so 3 months old.

Appearance was a fairly cloudy yellow/orange. Initially good head, which settled down to a thin covering which retained throughout the drink. Only a little carbonation could be detected. Of more concern was the suspended particulates. These eventually settled to the bottle of the glass.

Nose was undistiguished, faint of hops and vaguely fruity.

Taste & mouth was better than expected, given the above. However, virtually no hop bite. And this is a double IPA? Smooth drinking, a decent bodied mouth, and left a pleasant taste on the back of the mouth.

Overall, not too much to rave about on this one. Other than the floating particulates, nothing particularly horrible either. Doubt I would seek this one out again.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

- Notched 5/13. Consumed 7/13.

A: Strong swirling effervesce within a tarnished orange body of good clarity. 2 inch head is frothy and whipped with a strong rate of retention. Strong lace coverage, meaty stratified rings descend down the vessel.

S: Aroma of pineapple, pepper and celery, fresh green herbs with a touch of fresh wet citrus fresh and young in the glass.

T: Dry citrus toast, bready, peppery herbs, parsely with a warming of citrus flower. Dry grains, caramel juice sweetness peeks through mid-palate along with a pinch of spiciness, grassy pine indicators while ending with a gentle dryness of hops and grains.

M: warm and toasty, bready textured with a good carbonation presence. Medium bodied and a sting of citrus alcohol coming off the tongue.

O: Overall nicely balanced, hops are fairly aggressive without being obnoxious supported by a sturdy malt backbone. Some interesting aroma, good drinking potential. very good overall.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Pours copper with a hint of amber.  Leaves a nice finger and a half of light caramel/light tan colored head. Great retention and fantastic lacing.

S - Resinous citrusy rinds, lots of grapefruit tempered by a nice sweet caramel malt backbone.

T - Exactly as it smells, fruity/citrusy hops are a bit staleness.  the markings on the bottle indicate march of 2013. Hopefully thats the bottled date rather than the enjoy by date. Either way its older than ideal which is probably contributing to the slight but obvious staleness.  caramel malts are relatively abundant.

M - Lighter bodied with good carbonation, quite refreshing

O - definitely a bit stale. The taste was still decent but i could see this being fantastic fresh. Will revisit when i have the chance. Giving the benefit of the doubt on the overall rating

3.55/5  rDev -14%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance - Very orange, slightly cloudy and an offwhite head. Nice color but I wish it was clearer.
Smell - Not much here for a DIPA, very very little hops and not much else.
Taste - More bitterness than I would prefer, should be balanced out a bit more. Typical piney with a little more citrus hop flavor than most IPAs of this variety. The alcohol is masked nicely though.
