3.18/5 rDev -20.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3
a hazy orange pour with a finger of white head which quickly disappeared. smells of pineapple, orange, raspberry, honey.... this is odd for an iipa...
ok.. just checked the bottle for a date.. 03-31-11... i just bought this a few days ago. damnit, i hate when ipa's are this far from their freshness date, there's going to be absolutely no hop character on this.
very malty with a slight citrus backbone. a hint of grapefruit bitterness is followed by a zesty orange flavor and a caramel like overall taste. not gonna lie, it's not absolutely terrible, but like i thought - there's no hop flavor.
medium body, slightly creamy feel towards the roof of the mouth. mild carbonation.
there appears to be a decent amount of lacing throughout the glass.
overall, this is a decent beer (i am including the non fresh date in judging this). i'm sure it is completely different fresh and am going to have to try it again. all the flavors i tasted should still be there but should only be subtle as a backbone to the supposed 86 ibu's this bad boy has. i'm hoping to see a fresh bottle of this soon so i can compare.

1 Pint, 6 oz bottle poured into a glass.
A: Cloudy burnt orange color. Beautiful for an IPA. Practically no head at all.
S: Nice hop aroma with a little bit of pine scent as well.
T: Love the fairly high IBU count (86). Nice hop taste with a little bit of sweetness. Unfortunately, they didn't balance the hop taste with the alcohol taste.
M: Carbonation is fine but the alcohol taste is not masked as much as it should be.
O: One of the best Double IPAs I've had. I picked this up for just $3.99. I would spend that on this any day of the week.
