3.63/5 rDev -3.5%
A - a very nice deep red/copper, three finger off white/light tan lacing and some very sticky lacing
S - cinnamon, herbs, spices, fruity hops, smells of the tropics, very sugary like a caramelized brown sugar, pine, greens and wood
T - Very bitter up front, lots of spices, pine, soil, still very bitter in the middle, some fruity/earthy hops and more bitterness
M - Full bodied, medium minus balance, decent complexity, medium plus acidity and a very violently bitter start and finish
D/O - I LOVE BITTER and this beast is effing bitter. Has rad flavor lying underneath all that bitterness. Still very nice. The nose is lovely and the taste is the same just overly bitter. I do like this beer a lot, just missing the refreshment for me!
Final thought - great nose, just don't know if I want to pay $8 to make sure I didn't just get a bad batch. But the color and smell makes me think this is the top shelf of this ale

4.5/5 rDev +19.7%
Just picked up a fresh bottle at my WF. Pours a beautiful amber orange with a one inch cap that dissipates rather quickly with thin lacing a I drink down. Nice sweet tropical fruits with a hefty malt backing but not sweet, really impressive balance. The mouth is refreshing and quite pleasant. Over all a very nice effort from this new comer. Will try again. I don't know why the page describes it as an IPA as it clearly states on the label that its a DIPA.

I poured this into a sniffer glass and got a nice copper colored brew with 1/2 a fingers worth of a khaki colored head that quickly dissipated. The aroma was amazing and had a great woodsy smell to it along with some grass and citrus fruits. The taste is very earthy and piney bursting with hop goodness. The mouth feel is medium to light medium and completely masks the 8% ABV. Truly a great DIPA!

3.75/5 rDev -0.3%
Ok...to begin with I must admit I was attracted to the great label and the fact that it is a "double" or "imperial" IPA. Pours well with a half finger of head and nice lacing all the way.
Color is a dark amber. Clear with medium carbonation. Aroma is typical for an IPA..strong hops with citrus, hay and grass. Nice mouth feel and bitter hoppy taste with a malty back
feel. All in all an above average brew, if not outstanding. Enjoy!

3.4/5 rDev -9.6%
Serving Type: 22oz bottle poured into a pint glass.
Appearance: Dark amber in color with a short but dense off-white head that dissipates just a little too quickly. Great lacing.
Smell: Moderate strength aroma with hops leading. Tangerine, floral, and a hint of grass. Minimal pale malt aroma. Nice but not amazing.
Taste: The bitterness hits immediately. Very strong but not the smoothest bittering. Hops taste floral, citrus, and grassy with a slight hint of pine. Just enough pale malt backbone but a touch more would have been better.
Mouthfeel: Just a bit under a medium body with nice carbonation and a semi-dry finish.
Overall: I enjoyed this beer for the most part but would have liked to see a better tasting bitterness, a touch more malt, and a bit more heft in the body.

3.2/5 rDev -14.9%
According to the bottle this is 8% ABV and 82 IBUs.
Deeply amber colored beer edging towards the color brown with a small off-white colored head. This is a hue I like to call bronze.
Smell is strong C type hops. Scents of pine and orange with a little grapefruit. Strong honey malt scent. Little bit of lemon and eucalyptus to this. Faint cedar aroma.
Starts out sweet with a woody flavor and a savory sensation on the tongue. Moderate amount of bitterness. Little bit of citrus but this is just plain woody tasting, like sucking on a teabag.
Mouthfeel is OK.
Overall I feel like I wasted my money on this one. Not much here but a teabag flavored ale. I suggest you skip this one.
