look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 750ml. bottle into a La Fin Du Monde tulip glass. 

The color is a orange/amber with some yellowish highlights. There is a big head on this beer with about three fingers of foamy white head and some nice lacing left on the glass.

The smell is pretty earthy with some of the Columbus hop aroma being present. The malts have presence here with as well adding to the earthy damp aroma.

The taste has a big push of juicy fruit flavor that seems to hinge on the bitterness that frames this beer throughout.  This a touch of grapefruit but it gives into some melon flavor and some bready flavor that leads into the bitterness that comes in at the end to slap this beer down with a loud period.

The feel of this beer is a bit big. There is no denying the alcohol that weights here but does not take away from the drinkability of this beer. It's a pleasure going down.

There is something off in the smell on this one. Maybe malty charcoal, if that makes sense.
Slightly cloudy amber with medium head. Head fades rather soon.
Taste is a little to malty for my liking, but nothing bad. As with some double IPA's you can sense the alcohol in this one.
Poured to a pint glass from a can without date (too lazy to get up an look at the box).

A- pours clear and golden color with a small fizzy white head that reduces to a small layer skimming the top no lacing left behind

S- very intriguing nose, lots of fruity esters with some pear, orange peel, candied citrus fruit, some sweet sugary malt. Picking up some underlying hop aroma, flowery and citrusy. Also strangely picking up some lactose, dairy like sourness as well. Unique to say the least

T- the fruitiness follows the aroma with notes of fresh berries and stone fruit. Big malty backbone mid-palate, but it still underlies the fruity aspect of flavors. The bitterness is actually hidden until the finish, and some floral hops linger on the palate

M- medium body with low carbonation lead to a creamy mouthfeel and a smooth finish, just a hint of alcohol warmth at the end

O- this tastes unlike any IIPA I've tried, but I dig it. Good fruity notes with enough hops to keep it bitter

A thanks to the captain of the canship, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a hazy, dark golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of tropical fruits, light malts. Taste is well balanced hops and malts, tropical fruits, hints of pine, alcohol is well hidden. Feels medium/full in the mouth and overall, while not the hop bomb expected from this style, it is a smooth and enjoyable beer.
