Appearance- Deep golden hue with a medium head atop it.

Smell- Apples and hand lotion... wtf?

Taste- Vegetal hop notes and spiciness, some pill bitterness, extreme amounts of pine.

Mouthfeel- Crisp, overly carbonated.

Overall- Good, but not even top 5 Double IPAs for me.

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

Appearance: Pours a clear, orangey body with a full, foamy, white head.

Smell: Predominately hoppy aroma smelling of an aromatic blend of gooey pine resin and oily grapefruit rinds. Some lesser candyish notes in the nose, as well as hints of bread and sliced melons.

Taste: Citric grapefruit juices and packed with pine needles. Touch of peppermint, some floral hints as well. Citrus and melon fruitiness. Meek pale, lightly bready malts with a touch of caramel sweetness make an appearance when they can. Full, tongue-scalding bitterness. There's a tiny bit of sweetness in the finish and lingering aftertaste, but, by and large, it's all hop bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation. Somewhat oily mouthfeel.

Drinkability: About as smooth as 100+ IBUs is going to get.
