3.68/5  rDev -5.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

thanks to pelican5 for sending me a six pack of this! poured a 12oz bottle in to a wine glass. body is a slightly hazy orange. a half inch of white tight nit suds settles in to a ring of lace. smells very floral and grapefruity. taste is mainly grapefruit with a little lemon and some sugary malts in the background. this beer is nicely carbonated but seems a tad thin for being a dipa. plenty of oily hops present on the tongue and cheeks. dry bitter finish lasts a little too long for me. i think my biggest knock on this beer is the lingering bitterness on the finish, like a burnt toast bitterness to me. other than that this is very drinkable and the abv is hidden well enough.

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!)
