4.25/5  rDev +4.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

S: Bright fruitiness, passion fruit, grapefruit sweetness, lots of pineapple with some mango, candy like sweetness.

L: Hazy burnt orange, creamy white head that dissipates slightly. Solid lacing.

T: Resiny dankness up front followed by a medium large malt sweetness. Medium high fruity sweetness, a slight grapefruit bite. There is a short, pronounced bisquity malt that fades quickly to a deep burnt pineapple. Finishes quite resiny and semi-dry.

M: Medium full body, medium carbonation, alcohol barely noticeable.

Pretty good overall, a little heavy, but great flavors.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Bottle states to enjoy by 8/13 so I assume this must be quite fresh.

A: Pours a slightly hazy amber with a big fluffy light tan head. Head fades fairly quick, leaving only moderate lacing behind. Decent retention.

S: Big big hops. Lots of onion/garlic and pine. Grapefruit abound as well.

T: Again, big hops up front. Lots of juicy citrus. Grapefruit, oranges and mango even. Some pine mixes in. Caramel malt tries to interject and barely succeeds. Strong pine and resin on the back end with a big wave of bitterness. Lingering drying and oily sensation sticks around for a long time.

M: Medium bodied, does not nearly feel 10% due to the hops wiping out everything.

O: Huge hop bomb. Almost no discernible malt even at 10% ABV. From start to finish it's just waves of different types of hops and bitterness. Great variety of flavors, all well balanced to boot. Excellent huge DIPA.

4.28/5  rDev +5.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

A - orangish amber with a thick, white head that has great retention

S - citrusy, piney, big herbal aroma

T - mild breadiness, some sugar, big bitter finish, some pine, intense herbal hop finish

M - medium to full bodied, well carbonated

This is a really nice beer. The hop character is intense and intricate. The ABV is well hidden giving it great drinkability. I thoroughly enjoyed this one. It's definitely worth finding.

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

Pours a slightly cloudy light amber, nice tan head.

Smell is pretty hoppy, even mix of bitter pine and citrus, juicy citrus and hints of pineapple. Smells fresh and very hoppy.

Taste is nice bitter hops, again a nice balance between piney/grassy hops and citrus hops, especially orange, some floral notes too, some light vanilla malt. Pretty bitter, big hop character.

Mouthfeel is milky smooth, good carb, alcohol is reasonably well hidden.

Very nice double IPA.

8.0/10
