3.55/5  rDev -12.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a very hazy (looks like a lava lamp suprisingly) golden color with a 2 finger thick pillowy white head on top sticks to the glass.

Fairly grainy aroma with lots of grapefruit and a hint of biscuits. Earthy floral hop tones also. Nothing overly exciting or NEW, but solid on the nose.

Sipping reveals a surprise in my mouth. It's not as bitter and piney as I was anticipating, but more a mouth of sweet grapefruit along with orange rind and some earthy flavors comes through. Smoother finish with a bit of the alcohol and cane sugar coming through. The finish is a bit "thin" for a double IPA for my liking but this is decent. I wasn't expecting the alcohol to be quite as apparent as it was also.

Overall, a fairly easy brew to drink. I should have chilled this one a bit more than what it was, since it was in a cooler and sat out on my counter for a few hours. Cooler than room temp, but not quite cold.

4.01/5  rDev -0.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Slightly hazy yellow orange beer with short tight head that fades quickly to a film and extensive lacing.

S - Solid nose of pine, grapefruit citrus, floral notes, with a mild honeyed element, presumably from the malt.

T - Stronger honey couples with a hint of lemon and a certain medicinal element. Another IPA that reminds me of a honey lemon throat lozenge, not that that is a bad thing. This is a pretty delicious brew. Middle comes with some bitterness, and that runs through the close. At the end, the honey comes back, offering a touch of sweetness.

M - Mild carbonation means the bitterness and hop oils hang around. Not a sign of the serious alcohol, though, which is a significant accomplishment.

O - This is a solid double IPA, with bright flavors. An added benefit is this quite drinkable for a DIPA. I will pick this one up again, I suspect.
