look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A - Hazy dark copper color with a pencil width white head that is gone in seconds. Thin lacing left on the glass

S - Strong and smooth caramel smell with a hint of fruit

T - Taste of lemon and grass on the initial sip followed by a slight sweet finish that lingers in the mouth for a little while.

M - Medium body mouth feel with slight but sharp carbonation

O - Overall a nice beer, not very big on the fruit and hop flavors but leans more towards the sweet and roasted malt side of a beers life. Not a beer that I would buy often but I would drink it again

-Enjoy

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Serving: 22oz bottle
A: cloudy, nice head. Could be more clear.
S: smell fades quickly, slightly tropical, not much hops. Disappointed.
T: this is where the double IPA comes in. Notas solid as some of the top like dogfish or stone. But serviceable. Hops are more on the tropical, passion fruit side, very little pinny or nw hops.
M: adequate for an DIPA

Overall: decent, but was expecting much more.
