This is sweet and malty to the point of drinking like a hoppy barleywine. Not unpleasant at all though. Works as a slow sipper on a chilly day.

Really just lucked into this one. Was having a taster at The Pub in Vegas and one of the samples was bad so I asked them to surprise me with one of their choice and this is what I got. Ended up being one of the better one. It poured a translucent orange with thin white head the nose was old world floral and piney hops and the taste was very similar with an added alcohol burn. Nicely balanced for a double.

I'm not a big hops fan. So I guess this rating is because of that. If you like a very hoppy and fairly carbonated desk, then you'll like this. Only thing I like it's the 9% abv

Enjoy by 3-12-15, so kind of near the end of desired time...

Pours a chill-hazed amber with 2 fingers cream colored head. Super lacing & above average head retention

S: Some breadiness & floral hops, then pineapple kicks in as this warms

T: Follows the nose, grapefruit rind as well up front, slight malty sweetness up front. Some pineapple, a little honey malt, grapefruit with a little lime & grassiness as this warms. Finishes, piney a little tropical & cakey, a little grassy

MF: Medium bodied, lively carbonation, great balance

Drinks so easy, would love to try this fresher, but I enjoyed it as it is. Would certainly buy again...

Very drinkable and affordable double IPA with a good value. Alcohol is detectable in taste and aroma. Taste is piney, citrusy, boozey, bitter, then sweet malt on the finish although a little less bitter than I would expect. Nice head thick (I gave a bit hard of a pour) which held a miniscule ring throughout with moderate lacing. My favorite things about this beer are the upfront citrus notes, the mouthfeel, and abv. This isn't the most complex DIPA by no means but it gets the job done and is an excellent beer for the price.

The hops come out more intense than the 72 IBU's it claims. A hop lovers dream!

Not my favorite DIPA but good enough I keep buying more.It tastes good, but very safe, it doesn't challenge my palate the way my favorites do.
L: Pours a fairly clear clean copper/orange color, with a very thin head that dissipates very fast leaving lacing.
S: Very faint citrus hop aroma.
T: Not a lot of taste going on. A little too malty for my taste. Initial bitterness quickly overrun by malty sweetness, but a very dry bitter finish which I like.Pine dominates the hop impression.
F: This may sound strange, there is a fairly heavy mouth coating sensation, low carbonation and noticeable alcohol burn that numbs the gums.
Although not my favorite DIPA, it is in my rotation because it is affordable, available, and boozy. It may fall out of the rotation in the summer but I want it on these cold winter nights.

Great Hoppy bear for non Hop Heads. Initial citrus burst with smooth hop flavor with a nice bitter aftertaste. Beer is very hazy; look does not do justice for the taste. Overall a great beer.

A sweet grapefruit like aroma. . Orange and ruby clear body. Head thins out a laces the glass nicely. Strong bitterness upfront. Has a light fruit and caramel malt balance. Finishes clean and refreshing for something this strong. I’ll be happy to have this one anytime.

Malty, boozy with some grapefruit hop bitterness. Not much sweetness or flavor. Not terrible, but there are a ton of better DIPAs out there.

Shocking how drinkable this Double IPA is. Job well done. Definitely going to pick up a few cases in the future.

a dark blonde that delivers a spice but then you get a distinctive grapefruit, citrus taste. The hops give the beer a certain amount of bitterness but then again it's double IPA. However, it transitions well and finishes clean.

WOW I don't care for hoppy beers, yet despite being a double hop this beer is very drinkable. Careful this beer is 9% so a six will cost you a little more but you won't taste the alchohol.

Hazy and a thin head with lacing.
Smell is boring. Boring. My nose must be busted.

The flavor is the shining beacon of this beer and it is boozy. You don't get many dIPA that leave enough room for those alcohols to add their lovely touch, but with this one the late flavor, after a mild hop bite (pretty mild), there's a great boozy grain flavor with mild sugar-sweetness. The result is something complex, something to sip on. It make me forget the dull smell. Game on.

I give it an extra high overall score b/c at my liquor store it is priced like a standard beer but its a solid double. That is worth points. If it was priced like a double, drop the overall to a 3. If only there was a nose. Bottle labeled as "enjoy by 3/16/15" - did that.

So smooth for a double - wow. Look is a sunrise orange. yellow if glass is thin. Head is 2 fingers and settles to .33 inches. Smell is wonderful - blend of citrus and flower. Taste is out of this world for a 9.0 ABV. Where did they hide the alcohol. Warming sensation going down and so smooth in the mouth. Excellent beer. Will revisit.

Sent to me by my son in Texas. Poured from a can into a glass, this DIPA had a nice foamy head, with plenty of lacing as the glass was emptied. Amber color, a bit on the red side. Dry hopped, with 72 IBUs, and measuring in at 9% abv.

The aroma was a bit piney with some sweetness coming thru. On the first sip, some hop notes, a little malty sweetness then a quick bitter taste. On the back end there was a minimal alcoholic burn, but overall this beer is very well balanced.

One of my favorite examples of the style. So flavorful and yet still balanced. Not an astringent bitterness, but a floral, citrus, and pine experience that pairs well with the malt sweetness.

I'll admit this one is a tad thing for a DIPA, but the flavor profile does it justice. The aroma does not have the punch of some of my favorite doubles but the notes of pine and fruit create a really well balanced flavor that is just so enjoyable. Great balance of sweet and bitter that works so well. This one is a staple in my beer fridge. At 9%, canned in six packs at a hell of a price, this one is a winner!
