3.96/5  rDev +10.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

- 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.

DATE REVIEWED: August 31, 2014... GLASSWARE: Maudite snifter... OCCASION: Labor Day celebration begins early... APPEARANCE: intimidating dark, murky burnt sienna body that hoists thick, foamy off-white head; lacing stratifies beautifully and with balance... AROMA: explosive hop bomb that borders on pure syrup--but the cone is legitimately a west coast varietal; welcoming despite its intensity... PALATE: full-bodied, somewhat crunchy--but highly drinkable at 10 ABV! incredibly long aftertaste... TASTE: the hops are strong though not aromatic; the malts are present but not noticeable; a rather middling effect, with heat overtaking the profile ...OVERALL: impossible to say this is better than Two-Hearted or Heavy Seas, but third place in the roommates IPA challenge isn’t too shabby considering the competition--this packs a warming wallop, a powerful albeit more singular profile than other BIG IPAs...

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

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.
