Served on tap into a tulip glass at 101 Bottles

A- Poured a hazy orange color with frothy head that left some chunky lace

S- Big tropical fruit, pine, grapefruit, and some malts in the the nose. Big pungent aroma, really great

T- Big grapefruit/grape taste, definitely the taste of Cascade hops. Some pine notes and malts, but definitely grapefruit/grape heavy.

M- Very smooth with prickly carbonation on the finish, finishes dry

O- A really good DIPA, I am generally not a big fan of Cascade hops but this is probably my favorite beer I have had that features Cascade hops very predominately.

Appearance is a dark hazy copper supporting an off white head leaving nice lace. Smell of dominant hops, heavy balanced malt with grapefruit/citrus aroma. Taste is not as expected considering the IBU's. This is a very well balanced DIPA with the mellow sweet malt and the citrusy hops. Mouthfeel is medium with mild carbonation. One of the best DIPA's I think I've had thus far, hearty and well rounded.

A: Poured the color of light maple syrup, with a clear white head. Excellent retention and lacing.

S: Got a lot of pale and caramel malts. Straight floral and piney hops scent here. Pleasant, but not that strong an aroma.

T: Really enjoyed this one, bright floral tone up front, with definte citrus in the middle. Fairly bitter piney resins finish it off. Plenty of sweet malts in there as well.

M: Very nice, this is a big chewy beer, and exactly what I want in a DIPA.

D: This one surprised me, big flavor profile and chewy texture make for a nice DIPA.

Served on tap in a chalice.

A: Dark tangerine orange with little light transmitted. Huge creamy head with a chalky white coloring that was strong on the hold. Sticky lace with a very good amount of coverage, provides a thick milky coating on the glass.

S: The nose was sweet piney, mixing with dry grapefruit. Moderate show of strength per ipa standards, a bit less 2x ipa expectations. Finishes out with some light sweet grassy notes.

T: The flavor was dry piney grapefruit, light and flowery with little malt support which came up a bit short. Bitterness was moderate, again more on par per ipa standards rather 2x ipa. Decent on the close with some strong flowery grapefruit flowery hops and hay coming in but still not enough to impress for good results. Alcohol was evident

M: Mouthful was creamy, lush body, bitter on the tongue with a medium body. Tart grapefruit pulp with flowers on the swallow.

O: Overall expected a bit more by brewery standards. The hops and flavor was a bit one dimensional lacking any complexity and depth. Really didnt smack my taste buds around enough.

Double IPA, English hops. Hugely bitter. Vast malty richness splayed and ravished by the monstrous excess of hops. Strong honey taste with fruit cocktail and grapefruit rind. So intense, with flavors so bitter and so sweet, it's a challenge. Some sipping proves interesting, but half a small snifter leaves me gasping.

Well, this is definitely Adults Only and drinks Double Bastard for breakfast. Manly hop wonks should take note.
