4.65/5 rDev +19.8%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75
I've had this beer many times, and have occasionally been able to enjoy it on nitro at Peoples. I find this a very solid offering that isn't over the top but still provides quite the kick in the mouth.
Pours a dark almost Amber color with a thick white creamy head
Smell was rich with an overwhelming hit of citrus right off the bat. Very resinous and mouthwatering.
Mouthfeel was a solid bodied, not overly heavy IPA
Taste was very hoppy right off the bat before smoothing out. I enjoyed the taste of this beer but it can be a bit astringent if you get it not on nitro.
Overall I think this guy is very solid and a great use of Galaxy and Amarillo hops

4/5 rDev +3.1%

I feel that this is their ultimate beer for hop heads. The single hopped Galaxy double IPA is a super fruity and sweeter double IPA.
It definitely has the malt balance you need in a heavily hopped beer. Pours a deep golden orange and has an off white head that gives great retention around the glass.
It smells as good as it tastes. Astringent but not overly bitter and finishes very cleanly. I wish they did this one more often.

Got this at the brewery because they were having a very limited batch and wanted to try it before it was all gone.
A - Brilliant deep orange color. Very clear with nice white head with moderate lacing.
S - Hoppy smell with some earthy and fruity tones. Not as strong a smell as other IIPA's but definitly hoppy smell. Light alcohol and some malt comes through.
T - Tastes stronger than it smells but very similar. The earthy/fruity character is stronger and mingles with alcohol and malt to give a nice flavor that has a crisp bitterness. The summit hops add more herbal/earthy tone that is mixed with the passion fruit of the galaxy hops. No caramel tones but still some sweetness in the middle from all the malt.
M - Heavy mouth-feel with light carbonation. Mostly clean finish for an IIPA.
Overall, not the best IIPA but a good beer that is better than most regular IPAs. Has an interesting flavor and definitely worth a try, but I would recommend less summit and more galaxy to give it more passion fruit and less garlic.

3.69/5 rDev -4.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
Pours vibrant orange with a small dense white head. Decent retention and a few solid clumps of lacing.
Lots of resiny aroma. Some citrus and biscuity malt as well.
Lots of big citrus/tropical fruit hop character up front. Chewy biscuity malt in the middle before the avalanche of resin near the end. Has a slightly astringent bitterness to it as well kind of like tap water does sometimes.
A little stickiness on the mouthfeel, but at times felt a bit too thin for the flavor profile. Adequate carbonation.
Wish they'd bottle this one again. It does have a few minor flaws, but is a very drinkable beer.
