3.29/5 rDev -23.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3
Amber colored with decent head retention and lacing for its strength. Dank, pungent aroma thick with green, spicy hops, herbs, scallions, butterscotch, mango, passion fruit, and toffee. A big hoppy burst greets the senses right away, followed by a substantial toasted malt backing. Honey, grapefruit, mango, resin, and caramel. Boozy alcohol smothered by bitterness, malty sweet under the hops, and warming…American Barleywine territory. Not a great finish – a little too hot and sticky. Rather heavy, textured, and bitter. That, in addition to being somewhat under-carbonated hurts the drinkability. Oh boy…I really wanted to like this one, but it’s just too sticky and brash to be all that enjoyable. Not bad, just disappointing and overrated.

4.26/5 rDev -0.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
Type: 22-oz. bottle
Glass: Pint mug
From: Windmill Farms in Del Cerro (San Diego), Calif.
Purchased: July 10, 2014
Consumed: July 18, 2014
Misc.: Born on May 20, 2014
Poured a honey, caramel, semi-clear color with two fingers of rocky white head. Sporadic spider web foamy lacing along the sides of the glass. Above average retention on the top all the way down.
Smelled a plethora of hops up front. Got grapefruit, citrus, Cascade, floral, orange rind and light resin. Also some rye, caramel and orange creamscickle.
Tasted pretty close to the smell. Got citrus hops, Cascade hops, orange creamscickle, floral hops, grapefruit, nectarine and caramel. Some bitterness, but the 11.25 percent ABV felt about 7 percent.
Medium-to-light body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Long, slightly bitter finish.
Just a fantastic double IPA. I’ve wanted to try it for a while and I’m glad I finally did.
