look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a pilsner hourglass. No bottling date that I could find.

A- Deep amber, good clarity, small slightly off-white head.

S- Light notes of floral, citrus, apricot, and spice. Getting a bit of yeast.

T- Apricot, floral, some orange, spice, finish is bitter floral.

M- On the heavier side of medium, a bit syrupy.

O- Not the most potent DIPA, the aroma is a bit muted, and the flavor profile isn't my favorite. There seems to be a yeast flavor to it that I didn't care for.

Pours amber with a lasting foamy head that leaves a fair amount of lacing.

The smell is floral with citrus notes, caramel and some black pepper.

The taste is of pine and citrus (mainly orange/grapefruit), with some late peach. A touch of black pepper with an aspirin-like bitterness stays just ahead of caramelized bread in the finish.

The body could be fuller for the style, but the alcohol is covered well. It's also has a bit of fizz initially, but it settles.

Certainly not a "hop-bomb", it still has enough hops to keep it in IPA territory. It's not one of the greatest out there, but still it's good overall.

Pours a clear, copper color. 2/3 inch head of an off-white color. Good retention and slight lacing. Smells of strong pine, piney hops, sweet malt, hint of floral, and alcohol. Fits the style of an American Double / Imperial IPA. Mouth feel is sharp and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, pine, piney hops, slight citrus hops, alcohol, and a hint of caramel malt. Overall, decent appearance, average aroma, body, and blend. The body is hop forward obviously, but beside the hops the rest of the body is underwhelming.
