4/5 rDev +15.9%
Poured from 22 oz. bottle into a Surly Darkness Chalice.
Appearance: Pours a bright and clear amber orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. Solid three fingers of white head with decent retention. Lots of lacing sticks to the glass.
Smell: A hop forward aroma with big hints of floral and grassy hops. Not as much citrus aroma as you would expect from a double IPA but there is some nice orange aroma in the background. A good amount of caramel malts and biscuit. Also some pine resin.
Taste: A pretty balanced taste. herbal, grassy hops and pine resin give a nice bitterness and some spice. Solid presence of bready caramel malts and biscuit. Light hints of citrus esters with some orange and mango. This is far from a typical grapefruit bomb that lots of double IPA's are. It's a smooth balance of bitter and spicy hops and bready malt.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate level of carbonation. Chewy, creamy, and very smooth. Alcohol is hidden pretty well.
Overall: An interesting and tasty take on a Double IPA. A very balanced and smooth mix of hops and malts.

Had a pint at Stub & Herbs after a round of Air. Appeared a clear amber with a short white head. Funny, the hop character and malts immediately remind me of Summit's Extra Pale Ale, must be the biting citrus Cascade character I recognize. I like the malty toffee notes, and think the body has a proper weight, but the hops just aren't big enough. With more tweaking I can see this becoming a relatively unique DIPA (I'm not often reminded of EPA, a beer I do enjoy). Worth a try.

Poured into rocks glasses for sharing.
A dark amber brew that raises a small heas which then recedes. Aroma is very malty. The mouthfeel comes across as a bit heavy and the alcohol gives an impression of sweetness. There is a lot of floral hoppiness to keep it lively however, and in the end I enjoy this beer. Probably not so good as a session brew.

Clear amber color with just over one finger of head that had good retention before settling to a thick cap. Just some light spotty lacing is left down the glass.
Not a very aromatic beer, especially for a DIPA. More malt aroma than hops. Bready malt with some citrus hops.
The flavor picks up a little. Dry malt lays the background for the hops to be featured. But unfortanetly, the hops put out a poor performance. Just some citrus and herbal notes. It is bitter however, too bad the flavor does not follow up. A little warmth in the finish from the alcohol.
Solid body and nicely carbonated. Good texture for a bitter/hoppy beer.
Not a bad beer, but when the shelves are crowded with DIPAs, this beer will have a hard time competing.

I'm following up a Surly Furious with this one, so my results may be a tad skewed. It's like watching The Stones open up for some debut performance of a young indie band. Anyways...
Pours a nice clear burnt pear/gold, some pinkish hues. Thick white cap and good lacing, zero beading. Earthy hops on the nose, herbal bits. Sweet/tart, no discernible booze. The taste is not what I was anticipating - there's a standard hop canvas that is disturbed by some onion/garlic/spinach quality. Not as in, like a filtration issue, it's something else. Can't quite put my finger on it. Plenty of potential here, but the taste shows that something maybe has gone a-rye.

from fresh just delivered 22oz bomber
A- pours a mostly clear amber,golden color with a 1 finger off white head that dissipates to a fresh ring, some nice lacing on the side
S- was pine and citrus hops and sweet malt , nothing great
T- was sweet first with bitter pine and floral hops a touch of tropical hops but were all too light thru-out for a 2IPA, loads of sweet malts mask the 9% ABV, but for a 2ipa the hops were just lacking
M- medium carbonation with a smooth taste it did have an over sweet amount of malts with hops just a bitter reminder on the palate
O- its an allright 2ipa but its lacking in hops and was much to sweet, also @ $6.99 a bomber to pricey i wont be buying this again way to high a price , i will however try this on tap and i recommend trying this, just not one of my favorites in 2ipa's

A. Pours a golden blonde color, 2mm head with some light bulbes, fades quickly
S. Smells of strong citrus, fragrent hops and some orange.
T. Tastes of tart grapefruit, sweet hops, and bitter ornage peel.
M. Medium body, thick and chewy feeling, high carbonation
O. A pretty good beer. Well flavored, that seems like it would die quickly with age.
