4/5  rDev -11.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured into FFF Teku

Appearance - Pale, hazy golden yellow. 1 finger of light foam. Very little lacing.

Smell - Pine, grapefruit, tangerine, peach. Slight vegetative note.

Taste - Astringent pine with a solid malt body. Not getting the fruit notes that I got in the smell. Kinda tastes like a piney version of Zombie Dust (without the Citra) on steroids. Bitter aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Medium body, medium carbonation, sticky semi-dry finish.

Overall - A nice limited release, but I'll be sticking with other FFF brews. They call it a double pale ale, not a double IPA. I can see why. It's hard to believe it's 10.5% ABV though. It's blended extremely well. Even as it warmed up, the taste did not fall off. That's huge for this style. Extra points just for that.

Been anticipating this one for a long time. Appearance is exactly what I want in a dipa, beautiful hazy copper orange. Less nose than I expected, could pick up some grapefruit and pine but not overwhelming. At first was slightly disappointed. Seemed a bit unrefined and bitter. After sitting for five minutes and warming up the citrus starts to come out and evens out. Half way through bottle it was what I had hoped for. Overall a wonderful dipa and worthy of its rating. Definitely not an everyday beer or for faint of heart but one I hope to secure again in the future.

4.29/5  rDev -5.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Bottle acquired in trade. Poured from bottle into chilled pint glass. Appearance is beautiful, cloudy, murky orange/amber haze. One-inch thick white, fluffy head which dissipated gradually to persistent white collar, with ample tiny bubbles and lots of very sticky lacing throughout. The nose is incredibly pungent, yielding a malty citrus/mango/banana/pineapple & piney scent. Sadly, the impression on the palate does not quite match the promising nose, as the malts and heat from the alcohol tend to overwhelm. Mouthfeel is nice, full and supple, with appropriate carbonation.

All said and done, a very good DIPA, but could benefit from a little more floral citrus and balance on the palate. Well done nonetheless.

4.36/5  rDev -3.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours a glowing orange color with just a touch of haze. A really nice one finger cream colored head shows good retention and gives some nice lace.

S: A rich blanket of tropical fruit and caramel malt. A touch of spicy pine, mango, peach and honey. Smells pretty nice.

T: Mango and peach upfront, with a resinous pine note creeping in around the middle. Finish brings a blanket of caramel malt and some lingering pine on the finish. From reading other reviews, it seems like this has faded a bit in the month and a half since it was bottled. Really glad to have tried it, but I'll have to try it again a bit fresher.
