4/5 rDev -1%
12oz bottle poured into a Victory tulip glass.
A: Fairly clear golden yellow color. Finger of fluffy bright white head. Nice carbonation. Surprised by the color, much lighter than other DIPA out there.
S: Citrus hops, lemon and some pine. Surprised that it's not crazy maltly. This is the way I like my DIPAs.
T: Nice bitterness. But it's light and grassy and citrus tasting. Taste some sweet malt but this is a lighter DIPA. Maybe a touch more malt would balance, but I don't mind it being out of balance on the hop side. Nice crisp finish. The ABV is hidden really nicely. Can't believe it's as high as it is.
M: Light to medium bodied.

4.08/5 rDev +1%
A&S: Pours translucent golden with very slight head. Smells strongly of very nice citrus and piney hops.
T&M: Hoppy all the way through, crisp and with a slightly dry aftertaste and a well carbonated mouthfeel.
O: Very good, but if you had told me it was just a single IPA I would have believed you. Aside from the ABV there wasn't much that signaled fact that it was a double. Still a very solid, tasty beer.

3.85/5 rDev -4.7%
Appearance: Very light in color for this style, a pale orange. Sticky head which laces well.
Smell: Floral and earthy, an in your face hop presence.
Taste: Starts hoppy, becomes hoppy, and ends hoppy. There's a decent malt flavor that tries to break through, but this is dominated by hops. Tasty.
Mouthfeel: A little thick, but goes down okay. Leaves a leafy hop presence in your mouth, can be a little harsh.
Overall: Nothing that stands out, but it's a solid choice for a DIPA. Starts out nice but I got a little tired of it once I was done. I do like the 8.2% abv however.

3.8/5 rDev -5.9%
A - Pale gold, moderate head, big rings of lacing.
S - Big citrus pith nose of grapefruit, pomelo, tangerine and lemon. Slight white pepper and hints of caramel.
T - A little sweet, but powerfully balanced by grapefruit pith flavor. Aftertaste is a moderate medicinal and pithy bitterness.
M - A little drying and harsh.
D - The flavor isn't incredible and the mouthfeel is kind of rough, but I enjoy this a lot anyway. Will almost certainly have again. This is one of the finest Southern Tier offerings I've had yet.

4.33/5 rDev +7.2%
A - poured a very clear light golden yellow, subtle amount of white head
S - a slight hint of oregano, earthy, bittering and floral hops present, bready/cereal like
T - initial bitterness turns into a very basil-type flavor, sweet malts balance out the bitterness and blend together to create a mellow earthy flavor
M - very flavorful and complex for an IPA, very rich and smooth. a little bitter on the cheeks but not bad (considering I already downed 3/4 of the pour)
O - this is a VERY good beer for a session. it's got all the IPA qualities, plenty of flavor, but is subtle enough to keep you wanting more.
