22 oz bottle. Pours clear golden orange with a small frothy white head that goes to a thin film and leaves some lacing.

The aroma is subdued - peppery, piney hops with some metallic notes.

The flavor is sweet sugary bready malts with tropical fruit and some catty piney hops. The mouthfeel is light bodied and watery.

Overall, an OK DIPA. It's a bit subdued and not up my alley.

8.0% ABV. "Double India Pale Ale." 1 pint 6 fl oz brown glass bottle acquired at Lone Tree brewing this afternoon and served into a Guinness goblet in me friend's gaff in high altitude Castle Rock, Colorado. Reviewed live. Expectations are average given the brewery.

Served cold. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

A: Pours a 2.5 finger wide head of beige colour. Nice soft complexion. Decent creaminess. Nice thickness. Good (~5 minute) retention. Nice frothiness.

Body colour is a clear vibrant copper. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show. Transparent. Translucent.

Overall, it's pretty standard fare for the style but it's appealing.

Sm: Floral and oily hop character. Clean pale malts. Soap/detergent. Some lemon zest.

No yeast or alcohol is detectable. A mild strength aroma.

T: Soapy - this spent too long in primary. Clean pale malts. Some floral hop character. Light fruit: tangerine, maybe orange. No naked hop bitterness comes through. I guess the balance is okay, but the soapiness ruins the flavour profile.

No yeast character or alcohol comes through. Flavour intensity is timid for the style; this isn't very flavorful at all. Flavour duration is also a bit mild.

Little complexity or subtlety here. I'm not a big fan.

Mf: Smooth and wet. Soapy. Lightly oily. Decently carbonated. A bit too thick on the style. Doesn't really suit the profile well.

Dr: Tolerable but ultimately rather mediocre. A rather poor Imperial IPA, but it's passable in general terms. I certainly wouldn't get it again. Alcohol is hidden okay. A(nother) disappointment from Lone Tree brewing.

Enjoyed at the brewery May 13th

Dark amber in color; very minimal head; light lacing; 'soapy' bubbles present; grassy on the nose; hoppy and citrusy, almost orange or tangerine smelling; great balance up-front; overall, heady grapefruit and smooth hop flavor; bitter and slightly piney; easy-going 8% abv beer...borderline sessionable; probably the best LTBC beer, although I'm always sympathetic to IPAs.

Personally not a pale ale fan, but this was put in front of me. Better than most pale ales I've had so I have to give it a decent score.

22oz bottle $7.99. Aroma is hoppy, citrus, hint of malts. Flavor is hoppy but in a fruity way and a thick malt behind it. It is not bad at all. I am totally biased towards West Coast beers and this isn't one but its a decent beer, sort of chewy malts. This won't knock your socks off but you won't regret the purchase, at least I don't.
