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

Appearance. Pours a lightly hazy amber-gold with 1.5 fingers of thick off-white head that lasts a while and leaves some decent lacing.

Smell. Sweet toasted malts, caramel, some pine, oranges, pineapple and grapefruits.

Taste. Sweet toasty malts, lemons grapefruits and pine. Lots of bitter grapefruit rinds in the end that last a while on the tongue.

Mouthfeel. Medium-full body with medium-low carbonation. A little bit of warm alcohol.

Overall. Nice great big dipa. The high abv is fairly well hidden and there's plenty of tongue numbing hops to satisfy.

A: The beer is hazy orange amber in color and has some fine particles visible floating in suspension along with a moderate amount of visible carbonation that churns them around the glass. It poured with a one and a half finger high off white head that gradually died down and consistently left a thin head covering the surface along with thick rings of lacing coating the sides of the glass.
S: There are some aromas of citrusy hops in the nose (grapefruit really seem to stand out) along with some notes of caramel malts and pine resin hops.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, except that the caramel malt flavors are a lot stronger (as evidenced by the beer’s high alcohol content). There is a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and relatively crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is extremely drinkable for its strength because the alcohol is not perceptible in the taste. There is also a rather good balance between the malt and hops, although this beer doesn’t have as much bitterness compared to others in the style so it will fall short for hopheads.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - orangish amber; thick, dense, light brown head; decent retention

S - bread, citrus, pineapple, alcohol

T - bread, alcohol, grapefruit, pineapple

M - warm, a bit boozy, good carbonation, medium to full bodied

The alcohol is a bit intense and slows down the drinkability considerably. The flavor overall is good. It's worth checking out. If the booze mellows out it'd be a more solid offering.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Nose: Citrus and resin at first. Strong biscuity malts. Berry esters. Not super-fantastic.

Appearance: Perfectly clear copper with a tight, frothy head. The color appears a little thin.

Taste: Bitter and boozy. No real balance. Dark green and grassy and slightly metallic. The feel is thin and unsatisfying.

Overall: A disappointment. Just bitterness, but no dynamism. Glad I got a single and not the $17 4-pack.

12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a clear, light copper with a one finger off-white head. Really good lacing and good head retention.

Smells very citrusy with grapefruit dominating. A little bit of caramel in there too.

Taste is very citrusy up front with some caramel before a strong bitterness takes hold. This bitterness is also drying making you want another sip. Alcohol is detectable through the nose but is not overwhelming. A little metallic taste too which is not real appealing.

Overall, a decent double IPA but far from the best I have had. I probably won't pick this up again.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle, from a beer of the month club at Vintage Cellar in Blacksburg, Virginia, into a snifter. Pours a nice light amber with a froffy white head that stays with the beer. Smells of nice floral and earthy tones, quite balanced. Tastes of sweet hops and malt, however with an alcohol overtone that really sticks out. Beer is very smooth and carbonation is great, however, the alcohol overtones leave a funky taste. Overall, a good beer.
