3.96/5 rDev +10.6%
- 10 hops, 10% abv, 100 ibus.
A: A great sized building head rests above an autumn orange colored body. A strong sense of effervesce rages within. Head retention is rock solid, lengthy in stay and leaves big clumpy patches of lace on the glass.
S: Nose showed a brief moment of tropical fruitiness and caramel, sweet and wet sense, fresh, very nice.
T: Flavor had a sweet lemony pine start, fresh citrus, wet with some spruce and warm toasty caramel. Tropical fruitiness with a finish of a small alcoholic lemon warmth. Warm pine, evergreen and a fading mint flavor.
M: Prickly mouthful, active carbonation, body leans on the light-medium side.
O: Overall like the fresh and wet approach, sweet and smooth start, citrus, nice complexity of hops that accent and play off one another rather then clash like so many other examples that overload the hop bill. The alcohol is near undetectable, with a very high rate of drinkability, multiples are not an option but a must and given. Tasty, sweet flavor forward hop palate, not dry and overly bitter like the norm, very good and a crime to miss. So far a newer offering that seems to be flying under the radar but for how long.

3.5/5 rDev -2.2%
I had this on-tap at the Capone's Black Friday event. Poured into a sample glass.
Appearance: Pours a clear amber color with hardly any head at all.
Smell: Sweet malt with some fruity notes, mainly banana. There are some mild spice notes. Not a whole lot of hops.
Taste: Malty with some fruity notes. The banana shows up again with some caramel and spice. The finish is quite bitter and hoppy.
Mouthfeel: The body is just on the thick side of medium. The carbonation is tingly with a slick finish.
Overall: This is a really fruity double IPA. The malt is more prevalent than I expected. I might have another.

1/5 rDev -72.1%
I don't know how this beer got so many good reviews: this is one of the worst beers I have ever had. Coming from Philadelphia I'm spoiled with Victory, Yards, and Philadelphia BC so I thought I would try another PA beer. I thought the wrapping was gimmicky with the cartoon 50's greaser but I thought I would try it out. The color is a murky amber with a very very slight head that disappears. The taste is what really killed me. I love IPAs they are my favorite beer, but I wan to be punched in the face by hops when drinking one let alone a double IPA but I got none of that. All I could taste was lacquer thinner like I was making a new surfboard and some malt then bad bitter not the good kind. I was being nice giving this beer a 1.
