4/5 rDev -1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured a reddish dark gold with good head and lace that sticks around. Smell is mostly hops, citric and piney, with very little malt noticeable in the nose. This brew is similiar to the Liberty version, with the exception being that I find a sweeter hop presence as there's citric and grapefruit, and possibly there are some more caramel or other malt in the mix. This give s the beer a full body, like Liberty, but I find that the finish is more clean, despite a bit of stickiness, and the beer is a touch sweeter and more hop pronounced. Both are good brews but I enjoyed this one a little more and would consider this more of a "textbook DIPA".

3.66/5 rDev -9.4%

The beer pours out a rust colored orange with a thick rocky white head. Nice gobs of la e along the walls of the glass as it empties. Wonderful aroma of orange is at the forefront with a hint of pine and possibly caramel malt.
The taste is Equally hoppy, but not overly bitter except on the finish. No real hint of the high alcohol content. The citrus like hops dominate with a break bready malt appearance to give it some depth and helps create a medium bodied brew. Very enjoyable and dangerously drinkable. Lacks the depth and complexity of finer double IPAs, but I wouldn't mind having it again.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
On-tap 2/22/2013 at Track 84 in Warwick, RI, served in a tulip glass.
A: The beer is a deep amber color, with a short off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.
S: The aroma contains a nice blend of fruity citrus, floral hops and caramelized malts.
T: The taste starts out sweet with strong flavors of citrus and caramel. Then an earthy hops bitterness comes in. The malt character is hearty but not too heavy and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet and slightly hoppy.
M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.
O: Tasty, goes down very easily, not too filling, good kick, good representation of style, this is a very good 2IPA to drink for a long time.
