look: 4.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

12oz bottle poured into a tulip.

A: Pours a cloudy pumpkin with a ruby hue. A two finger dense white head leaves some real nice lacing as it dissipates. Too hazy to see any carbonation.

S: A resinous blend of malts and hops. Not an overwhelming hop bomb with all the malt backing. Dark fermented fruits almost overpower the hop. A bit metallic.

T: Has the bitterness of an IPA which is almost unsuspecting from that aroma. Hits you with a floral bitter then lingers with more of a citrus and pine. Malts provide a bit of sweetness but arent too strong. Bit of alcohol on the backend but nothing too offensive.

M: Medium body that has a full feeling to it. Slightly low on the carbonation. Really not much burn from the 9.2 ABV. Not overly sticky for a strong IPA.

Overall it passes the test of a decent Double IPA. Lacking on the aroma is makes it up with a good hoppiness. Give it a shot if your into the style.

Pours a hazy amber with a moderate white head that dissipates quickly. Lots of floral and piney hops in aroma. Flavor is similarly strong, with the addition of some sweet citrus, caramel malt and soy sauce. A nice, aggressive IPA. Hoppiness isn’t as strong as in some IIPAs, but a solid entry.

Appearance- Pours a tiny head that immediately disappears, above a pale burnt orange color body. Moderate to little lacing remains as the beer is drank.

Smell- Of a standard ipa that one would expect. Mostly a hoppy smell with some mild citrus undertones.

Taste- More than what was expected from the smell. A full hop flavor takes over the mouth and slowly dissipates into a lingering mild hop aftertaste, a slight sweet bite is notable on the aftertaste. Not overly aggressive but a definite full flavor hop taste. I like the flavor a lot personally, due to the simpleness of it, it does not try to overpower or be more then it needs to be. It is simply an ipa.

Mouthfeel- Slight sting on the palette. Medium to light body. Overall nothing overly exciting, but equally not offensive.

Overall- Simple ipa. Too many I come across seem to be more than they need to. This is an example of enjoyable basic ipa. I would suggest for a first time ipa sampler.
