look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured a nice dark amber (almost orange) in my glass. It left nice lacing, a white head.
The nose was great citrus. I love that in an IPA/Double IPA.
Then the flavor was also a very pleasing citrus flavor with some notes of tropical fruit. A hint of pine. The malt lended a pleasant sweetness.
The finish was a clean hop bitterness.
I really liked this beer and will drink more when I can.

Initially had this beer on tap... without knowing what i was drinking. I loved the beer on tap and bought it in bottle as well.

I ordered the beer b/c it was a mother's product... my bartender told me it was an ipa. I would have believed it. This double IPA hides the alcohol content incredibly well and i wouldn't have guessed it carries a 9.2% alcohol content.

Hazy orange reddish color.
Orange Citrus, peach, soap and caramel on the nose
A delightful sweetness, with a caramel orange/grapefruit/peach taste. The finish is dry with a good amount of hop presence that lingers on the palate for 15-30 seconds plus.

I am quite a fan of this beer. I am relatively new to double IPA's but i was very impressed.

Caramel covered peachy/citrus goodness with incredible hops? whats not to love?

Can't believe this has not been reviewed..

Pours an effervscent amber with 3 fingers of cream colored head. Fantastic head retention

S: Pine & grapefruit

T: Pine, grapefruit, & pears, plus pineapple up front. Breadyness & grapefruit slug it out as this warms, dryness, some woody hops as well with some honey malt & pear notes. Finishes with citrus & pine, pineapple & a touch of honey suckle sweetness

MF: Chewy, light carbonation, nice balance & slight grainyness

A nice DIPA, not a world beater, but very solid

The beer pours a clear orange color with a white head. The aroma has a lot of floral hop notes, as well as some orange citrus and a little bit of biscuit malt. The flavor is a showcase for several different hop flavors. I get a lot of orange and flora notes, as well as some grass. Somewhat surprisingly, I also get some grape and cherry notes and very, very little bitterness or alcohol. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Interesting.

A hazy orange amber with a finger of white soapy/detergent like head. Nice amount of lacing as well.
Smells of soap, pine, caramel, fresh cut grass.
a sweet citrusy caramel flavor up front. Grassy bitter hops follow, with a piney soapy flavor in the finish. 
a creamy medium body ipa with a nice amount of carbonation. Alcohol warmth is there but subtle.
a nice dipa, more on the bitter side than anything - which I like. Still a nice subtle sweetness to it to even it out. A nice mouthfeel makes this a great one.

12oz. bottle: This one pours a somewhat opaque, orangish amber color. There was a small off-white head on it that didn’t linger too long. It does leave some lacing. Nose is a bit subdued for a DIPA. Orange and grapefruit hops are most dominant. Some pine and grassy notes. The taste is pretty good. Decent malt body under the hops, with a bit of caramel sweetness peeking through. Fair amount of hop bitterness. Orange, grapefruit and some pine notes. Not bad, I’d have another.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a snifter.

3.5 A: Opaque amber clay color. One and a half fingers of frothy/creamy beige head. Retention is perhaps a touch below average for the style, but a good sized ring of lacing is left.

3.5 S: Peach, pineapple, and papaya fruitiness. Balancing maltiness featuring caramel and a faint doughiness. Also hints of tomatoe paste, which I'm not a huge fan of. Still, pretty decent.

3.5 T: Tastes like it smells. Fruits mentioned above, caramel maltiness, moderate neutral maltiness, a touch of dough, and some tomatoe paste.

4.0 M: Heavier medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Good creaminess to this and super smooth.

3.5 D: It has some flaws, but it's still a pretty good beer. The booze is very well hidden.
