look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

I'm always up for trying a new Double IPA, my favorite style of beer.

Here we go...

A:Very opaque golden orange color with a nice two finger frothy white head that leaves pretty lacing around the rim of the glass.

Good start here...

S: I have to admit I cracked the bottle open about 2 feet from my nose and I could smell the hops bursting out and invading my olfactory. Anyways... let's see hops hops and more hops with a bit of a caramel and orange.

T: HOLY SHIT! Ummm I really don't think I've ever had a beer that lived up to its name so closely. This is seriously just juice squeezed out of a hop. It's like brushing your teeth with a pine branch AND using pine sap for toothpaste!

MF: Palate killer is right , full bodied and scrumptious.

D: Yikes not sure how much of this one I could have but I'd love to invite friends over to have them share just to watch the look on their face.

If you don't like SUPER bitter beer, stay the hell away from this beer. That being said I loved it!

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A - Amber, somewhat rusty body with a one inch head leaving nice lacing as the beer goes down.

S - Pine and citrus hops with a vociferous malt backbone and an unfortunate rubbing alcohol nose that much is much too apparent.

T - Malty piney hops. Alcohol again makes its presence known, unfortunately.

M - Smooth and oily and with a dry finish. Alcohol is apparent on the finish as well.

O - A nice DIPA, but the alcohol is too noticeable, detracting from the hop presence. Thanks to the wife for bringing a bottle back from San Clemente!

There is too much going on. And due to the ABV this comes in a smaller glass and never on Happy Hour...why, this is an overated beer there and one to avoid if possible.
A: Slight gold/light brown color.
S: Hoppy hits the notes with citrus notes that just jump out.
T: Too sweet and hard for an IPA to enjoy.
M: Milky and alcohol kill this one
O: Have had it several times...it is okay

Serving type: on-tap

From old notes.

A: Pours a copper color with a big head, about two (or more) fingers tall and white in color.

S: Smells like a pine tree all the way. Intensely piney, resinous, and oily with some moderate citrus tones to it. Very green and very intense. A bit of tropical fruits in there too.

T: Amazingly bitter and just as heavy on the pine as the nose was. Quite a bit of grapefruit and perhaps some pineapple and apricot. No real room for malt flavor on this one.

M: Medium in body with a moderate to high level of carbonation.

O: I could easily see this being "too much" for somebody but I really enjoyed it.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Orange golden clear with slight head & lacing.

S - Lightly juice like, but definitely hops and alcohol, maybe sage, maybe not?

T - Taste is medium/heavy of hops and citrus, not long after tste, alcohol'ish but I like that.

M - Not too carbonated, but has a good medium of drink-ability, slightly "hot" alcoholish.

D - good drink-ability, but might be little "hot" and over the top for some, but still the after taste is not much, very light aftertaste. Pretty good brew, I can tell its got a high alcohol content (9.4).

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A= It poured a very nice Golden Orange with some golden coloring. Very nice head on this beer some lacing.

S= To me the smell was Hoppie to me a little bit of citrus with a hint of pine.

T= To me the tasted was deffently one of a strong beer which is fine with me they really didn't try to hide it. Left a little after taste.

M= Was a Heavy mouthful kind of coated my mouth.

D= To me it was really drinkable didn't have any problems would try it again. It was on the strong side but still a good choice would try it again.

3.73/5  rDev -1.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

On tap at TDR in Exton

A- Bright copper with some orange hints beneath and a flimsy off white cap with no lacing.

S- Smell is on the piney side with some residual sugar and some alcohol, bordering on nail polish in the minimal

T- An interesting DIPA, it's a very bitter one also, the pine overshadows the glimmers of pineapple and grapefruit that is underneath. Reminds me of a extremely light version of devil dancer with the teeth enamel taking off capabilities.

M- medium in build, slightly carbed alcohol on the mouth but not extremely hot. Bitter on the tounge that does not quit.

D- I am glad I tried it on tap no less but I don't think I will be going for it again. The alcohol is a bit high for my liking.

Serving type: on-tap
