4.61/5  rDev +6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into an imperial pint glass

A: Nice rich orange, with a bit of haze. Modest head. Strong lacing

S: Hops, orange-citrus, some malt playing around in the back. Complex, but thoroughly inviting.

T: Heavenly. Exceptionally well-balanced for a DIPA. The hops dominate as they should for the style, but there's plenty more going on -- enough malt to make it rich and tasty. Not a lot of alcohol burning through, but enough to add another element to the mix.

M: Crisp, with an ideal level of carbonation. Leaves a clean tingle on the tongue with no stickiness.

O: This is a great, great beer. I'd expect nothing less from a jacked-up version of UJ. I love me some hops and so uber-hopped DIPAs like Palate Wrecker are right in my wheelhouse, but I have to say, the balance of this beer is a wonderful testament to the brewing arts. It fulfills my hop requirements while giving me an even more complex experience.

Simply the best double IPA you will ever have. MASSIVE candied fruits. Think those dried pineapples that are chewy and delicious. Orange, tangerine. Sweet grapefruit. Hop bitterness in my opinion is more reserved than its union jack younger brother, but still a nice hit of hops. This beer is absolutely fantastic.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Cloudy off yellow pour with thin white head. Smell is grapefruit, alcohol, pine. Taste is hoppy and citrus, balances really well, not over the top bitter. Mouthfeel is smooth with heat from the alcohol at the end.

Overall, excellent beer. Love the heat that comes in at the end very nice little burn. Much more balanced than other Dbl IPAs. This was bottled on 10-25-13 would love to taste a fresh one.
