look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured into a chilled chalice glass.

A: Fairly standard orangey-type color when poured into the chalice. Light lacing around the glass that dissipates and sinks fairly rapidly. 1.5 finger white head when poured.

S: Again, standard hoppy Double IPA smell with a little bit more alcohol than I prefer.

T: Smooth, with just hints of hops and bitterness at the end. Nothing particularly memorable. Quite sessionable, actually.

M: Very smooth. Some coating of the tongue after drinking, but overall a fairly standard IPA feel.

O: Not a bad iteration of the Double IPA style, but nothing particularly stands out. 3.75.

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

Appearance: Orange-brown, cloudy, chunks of yeast, good head.

Smell: Citrus, mild fruity yeast, pepper.

Taste: Sweet, orange citrus. Some fruitiness, a little bit of black pepper, moves to a solidly bitter finish.

Overall: I finally found some bottles of this one in Iowa so I picked up a 4 pack. A good Belgian IPA that the brewery calls a double IPA on the label. The Belgian elements mingle well with the hops so each takes equal footing. Sometimes Belgo yeasts give me some weird flavors but this one seems to work well.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Dark saturated orange, soft haze, lasting collar of lace and skim across the surface.

Hugely resinous aroma of dried mango, citrus peel, dank green hops, and a slight cattiness.

Slick and viscous feel, loaded with oily hop resin, traces of alcohol combine and render the taste nearly medicinal. Bitter citrus peel and green botanical flavors are big, also sweet tangerine and lasting piney resin in the aftertaste, light honeyed malt traces linger too after the bitterness subsides. Full bodied and very bitter, the 9% is apparent, and blends a little better as it warms. Overall a big brash DIPA from Iowa, only a small handful of those in existence.

Thanks for this one Eric!
