3.78/5 rDev -10.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Served in a chimay goblet, is a pretty light amber color with a frothy thick white head. Looks extremely nice. Not nearly the nose I would have expected from a double IPA, the hops aroma is present, but subtle. You do not smell the alcohol. Taste is quite good. While not in the nose, the hops are strong in the drink. Not overwhelming, but they nicely balance the alcohol. Feels thick in the mouth, somewhat less carbonated that my taste. This affects the drinkabilty as well, and too heavy in effect to drink all night
Serving type: on-tap

This beer right here; this beer right here, man, this beer right here should be called def! Cuz it tastes so good that I tune out everything. (Somebody please tell me they got the Kat Williams reference). Anyway, this beer is really good! I love IPA's as it is, but this one looks so damn pretty, feels like water and tastes like some of Maharaja's gold. I would highly recommend it for, well...anything but a day in the sun. I encourage anyone google searching this reference while standing in front of a frosty glass cooler at Specs or Gabriel's or wherever, to go ahead and reach back into the cooler and add a necessary 8 bucks to your bill.

This is a very good beer, but I have had better. Maybe I have held on to this one too long, but it was a bit too malty for my taste. Although the bottle promotes the balance and "control" like a raja of both hops and malts. I feel like the malts are too intense for the beer. Well balanced but for the style I would say medium to high ratings.
Color: Dark bronze, but with some transparency, also a very low amount of head and lacing.
Smell: Not as intense as a West Coast IPA. Maybe that is my favorite style?
Taste: Balanced, I got this one on sale for a super deal so I figured I would try it, but I would not pay what the original price reflected.
Overall: A Solid beer, well balanced, not as much hops going on as I would like but its not a bad beer in any regard. But, to me there are much better in the same price range.
