Got a couple of these from finebeerguy. Thanks! No bottling date, but I believe this is quite fresh - 2 weeks old at most.

This smells like straight hop pellets after uncapping the bottle: pretty dank and aromatic. The pour is dark, cloudy, and amber hued, topped by three fingers of froth that leaves sheets of lacing. The nose is equal amounts pine and citrus, with a solid backbone of caramel malt. It's a little yeasty and soapy, too, but hops are dominant, bringing to mind candied oranges. Smells quite good, but not exceptional. Tastes citrus forward and fairly resinous. Big pine notes from the hop bill, backed by a good mount of caramel sweetness. Hops take on an herbal, almost minty profile toward the finish. Body is medium, heavier than I'd like. The malt backbone feels too substantial. The finish is quite bitter, but never as dry as I'd like - malt lingers well into the finish. This is enjoyable on the whole, but not overly memorable.

Thanks to CPAbeer and Stormking47 for this one.

App- A good darker hazy orange with some soft yellow floating downwards. Very nice one in head that was off white with a ton of cling down the glass.

Smell- Fairly unbalanced amount of malts and citrus. A large bitter and had some of that Shorts Spruce pilsner spice on the nose with with some dampness behind it.

Taste- This is what I said about regular Huma. Wow. This is a small bottle but has some huge flavors with it. Now double this one but doesnt all mesh well together. A lot of bitter behind this one and a bit dry on the flavor. Only a fraction of the citrus from the nose comes on the profile. More creamy and full hops with some spice come out.

Mouth- A fuller medium body with a medium carbonation that is a bit dry with a nice big bitter flavor. Lots of creamy and spicy hops on the finish.

Drink- This is quite spicy and bitter with the best of the other American IPA's but still has a strong creamy presence behind it. A nice beer but this profile is not for me.

I had this one fresh at the brewery in August, but just decided to crack open a bottle and review it. I remember when I had it on tap, I was not overly impressed.

Appearance - Poured into a snifter, the beer was the standard copper of a DIPA with very modest white bubbles floating at the top.

Smell - I do not get much in the aroma. There is more malt than hops or citrus.

Taste - The resin is at the front. It is like the most bitter lemon I have ever had. Any fruit presence is mild and toward the sides of the tongue. There is also a certain peppery spiciness to this one. The bitterness continues in the aftertaste. This fits the definition of what I would call a "hop bomb".

Mouthfeel - For a double, this seems a little thin to me. The relative thickness allows the bitterness to linger, I am waiting for a hidden aspect that never seems to happen.

Overall - I have had better DIPAs. I probably wouldn't seek this one.

Small bottle from Steve. Pours light grapefruit body with generous retained head. Mild hop aroma. A good drinkable bitterness, high IBU but not a palate shredder, fuller mouthfeel. Surprised at the high level of alcohol, it was well hid. Bottled in April, received in May. Good 1.5X IPA.

3.9/5  rDev -7.1%

Bottle from FlandersNed - approximately two months old, but still in the ideal range for the style. Served in a Hill Farmstead glass.

A - Off-white foam settles to a thin cap, thicker collar, and splotchy lacework. Murky orange body.

S - Super earthy and piney hops, with some zesty grapefruit peel and rind mixed in for good measure. Malt character is quite bready, and there's a faint alcohol note present. Far less sweet than your typical DIPA.

T - The taste is a bit more to my liking with some candied citrus flavor balancing out the leafy and earthy hops. Malt is quite subdued, and there's a mild astringency in the finish, but thankfully the alcohol presence is diminished.

M - Medium-full body, moderate carbonation, dry finish, and some oily and resinous tooth-coating residuals. Mild alcohol warming, but nothing excessive for 8.5%.

D - A decent enough DIPA, but nothing special. Might make a nice change-of-pace beer while drinking in Michigan, but I prefer regular Huma-Lupa-Licious to be honest. Still, a few of use easily finished the 12oz bottle.

Reviewing the Aww Jeah from Short's Brewing Company out of Bellaire, Michigan.

Score: 90

Bottle code "1193C21658." Served in a generic snifter glass and enjoyed on 08/19/13.

Appearance: Pours an orange copper with a half finger of off-white head that settles to a thin ring around the glass. Good lacing and retention. 4/5

Smell: Caramel malt, honey and fruity/grassy hops. A little spiciness too. As it warms, some tropical citrus comes through, but it is not juicy-fresh. 4/5

Taste: Bready malt, caramel malt, grapefruit, and floral hop flavor. Bitter grassiness towards the finish with a residual bitterness that lingers nicely. The hoppiness has a little dirty spiciness to it too, but this character is not very prominent. As this beer warms and layers, it becomes palate wreckingly bitter/hoppy. 4/5

Mouthfeel: Very light in body for an imperial IPA, low carbonation. The bitterness really sits and layers on the tongue, slightly singeing while the brew sits on the palate. 4/5

Overall: A total hop bomb palate killer. Nothing special, but well done. Cheers.

Cost: $15 for a six pack.

4/5  rDev -4.8%

A: pours a deep golden orange with a two finger dense off white head
S: smells of pine, orange marmalade, and sweet citrus a little alcohol and a bit floral as well
T: woody and earthy hops and a bit of pine. bready malt backbone and a slight citrus flavor. aftertaste brings a kick of oily earthy hops and a bit of sweet malt struggles to come through
M: medium to full with slightly prickly carbonation, slightly slick and oily but not bad
O: A pretty tasty DIPA that is well made but doesn't really stand out. Definitely not overly sweet but still having something like balance.
