3.4/5  rDev -11%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

bottle picked up locally, enjoyed from tørst wine glass.

a - brew poured a transparent orange amber with a finger of foamy head that coated the glass and hung out for a while. the brew definitely has a rich almost syrupy look.

s - dank hops with a crisp almost mentholated vibe. resin and pine. barleywine-ish.

t - bam...pow...zing! bitter hop assault. fairly boozy with a bite. resembles a barleywine.

m - bitter and thick with some booze.

o - overall, evil twin has been doing some very interesting things and with more and more of their brews popping up lately, i have been enjoying exploring the catalog. this one just showed up so wanted to try it on the fresh side despite the mixbag of reviews. not a bad beer, but in the world of IIPAs...this one can't hang with the big boys. there is a unique twist with the bigness of this one and for that it is worth checking out (esp if you like those "extreme" beers)...but this isn't one i'd look for on its own again...perhaps i'll try the black and tan though?

4.01/5  rDev +5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours a clear, ruddy amber with a fluffy, thick whitish head. Head retention is only so-so, though lacing is moderate.

S: Aromas of biscuit, lemon, lime, bitter orange, grapefruit, juniper berry, herbs, pine, papaya, pineapple, and tangerine fill the nose.

T: Notes of crackers, caramel, biscuit, herbs, lemon, lime, kumquat, bitter orange, grapefruit, papaya, pineapple, cedar, juniper berry, and tangerine swirl across the palate. The finish is mostly bitter and resinous with just enough caramel sweetness from the malt to provide a semblance of balance.

M: Medium-bodied, firm, and oily. Carbonation is delicate. Alcohol presence is noticeable. This is definitely an ale to be sipped and savored.

O: For the most part, this is a really nice DIPA. I appreciate the fact that the malt is emphasized a bit more than usual and the bitterness is not so overwhelming. I can see this being a beer that would be appreciated by those who are trying to move away from the over-the-top bitterness of many contemporary American DIPAs.
