4.1/5  rDev -2.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

22oz bottle poured into a Duvel tulip glass. Interesting color for a double IPA. Kind of light compared to what I'm used to seeing...sort of dark yellowish. A careless, aggressive pour left a huge, thick creamy head, eventually settling into a small pool of suds. Some lacing on the glass but not too much. The aroma...wow, it's like a hop punch in the face and I like it. Real heavy hoppy aroma that I could smell before actually taking a whiff of it. Noticeable grapefruit citrus presence as well. The taste is a hop bomb. Lots of tasty hoppiness hits immediately, then gives way to the bitter citrus. Not a whole lot of balance here, but it's quite tasty. It's got a light mouthfeel for the style and goes down real easy. An enjoyable beer for hopheads like myself.

4.06/5  rDev -3.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Imperial Pint.

Appearance: Rich honey-gold with good sized white head.

Smell: Grapefruit, orange, mango and pine. Very hoppy but sweet aroma.

Taste: Seems to be three stages to each sip. First, there is a sweet and slightly tart hop onslaught of grapefruit, orange and mango. Then the hops become more balanced with malts, where a wheat taste is evident. Finally, it is somewhat spicy, bitter and piney at the finish, with some lingering sweet and tart grapefruit.

Feel: Full bodied, thick and chewy. Moderate carbonation with a semi-dry finish.

Overall: Nice, unorthodox Double IPA, but the strong sweetness means that I prefer the Little Sumpin Sumpin base beer.
