3.6/5  rDev -7.7%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Pours amber with a fading head.
Nose shows fresh hops, piny notes, tropical fruit and some clean sweet malt.
Incredibly hoppy flavours. Pure pine and grapefruit with very little malt to support it.
Carbonation seems a bit high. Body could be thicker.

3.76/5  rDev -3.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

The place I purchased this suggested this to me. I don't know if they were just trying to get rid of it or they genuinely liked the beer, but two salespeople mentioned it to me. I am a big hoppy IPA kind of guy. This one was not a bad beer, but based upon the suggestion, and comparison I thought it would be in the same range as Sculpin, to me there was no comparison. Sculpin is a much better beer.

Appearance: Orange almost a bit hazy, very little head, nice color.

Smell: Not as hoppy as I would imagine based upon the 4 C's the bottle claims the brewers put in the beer. Four C's meaning four C named hops, I won't list them here but its on the bottle for reference.

Taste: Not much going on here. Maybe it is a good intro IPA, but my palate has evolved into something that can handle a more aggressive hop profile.

Overall: This is not a bad beer, good intro/gateway IPA, but not all that great.

3.78/5  rDev -3.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a bomber into a shaker. First impressions: pale copper with an earthy malt aroma and just a hint of citrus - Not overwhelmed at this point. Make it through the single-finger foam and as the scent hinted at, a medium caramel flavored malt and some hayseed hops with the scales tipped towards the malt. And the follow up? A million little hungry bitter bugs biting the back of my tongue, and like the Energizer Bunny they keep going and going and going...

Not really what I had hoped for from a 2xIPA, and not a top-shelf IPA, but not bad either. Would't turn one down if someone bought a round but wouldn't add it to my shopping list either.

(Still going!)
