Kentucky

3.48/5  rDev -4.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Pours a clear golden copper with a dense, frothy cream head that lingers.

Aroma is resiny, with thick caramel malt forming the backbone. There's a muted grapefruit underlying character. Toasted, bready notes accent the profile.

Sweet caramel malt, on the cloying side, finishes resiny and bitter. There are accents of citrus pith. Toasted, bready notes offer relief from sweetness.

Body is slick and fairly full, with moderate carbonation, a bit of hop astringency, and moderate alcohol warmth.

Rich, overly sweet malt, bitter hops to counter, but the sweetness is overwhelming. Fairly boozy and resiny.

Serving type: bottle

2.84/5  rDev -21.8%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 1.75 | overall: 2.5

Not really my kind of Double IPA. To sweet and no balance. I can't even find any hop flavor at all. The only saving grace is that the bar I am at serves it in a 16oz pint glass. That is all I have to say and why do these things have to be so damn long.

Serving type: on-tap

3.39/5  rDev -6.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Served in a snifter.

Appearance: Dark amber gold color that is very transparent. Heavy bubbles creating a white head rising maybe to about one finger's length.

Smell: Light citrus and that's it.

Taste: Bitter and a little sour, feels biting into a mellow grapefruit while still leaving the skin on. Hoppy but not too bitter.

Mouth: Lacks that after-taste you crave. Chewy, and slight sour finish.

Overall: Average at best DIPA,I have and you have had better. Doesn't do much to surprise the palates. It's a little in flavor but strong in alcohol giving you a slight buzz. There's definitely room for improvement. Grab a glass and have a taste....salud!
