22 oz capped bottle poured into a Bruery tulip glass.

A: The beer poured a hazy amber with a huge off white fluffy 3 finger head which left a nice sticky lacing on the glass.

N: The nose was light and pleasant with hints of grapefruit and other citrus fruits leaning to the sweet side.

T: The taste started off with sweetness from the malts and then quickly switched to bitterness of grapefruit rinds and ended very dry with a not so pleasant lingering aftertaste.

M: It had a nice medium mouthfeel with a nice pleasant carbonation level.

D&O: The drinkability was only OK due to the aftertaste which was very dry and bitter, but in a peculiar way. The alcohol level of 9.25% was very nicely hidden and added a pleasant warmth to this brew.

There are too many very good double IPA in the market that I would much rather drink, so this brew will not get a second chance from me.

A good and pungent double with aroma as its strongest point. Lots of hoppiness with a bold malt backbone. Not overly bitter but lots of hops, it's a pretty tasty one. LOVE the giant can!

Big, two plus finger head of dense foam with a top layer of larger bubbles, eggshell white to slightly tanner, above average retention with many thin, wispy streaks of lacing. Deep orange rust color with more of a reddish inflection than brown or yellow, brighter, lighter orange at the glass bottom. The nose is dominated by ultra-sweet tangerine, pink grapefruit, lime citrus, fresh and juicy, piles on with honey, molasses and caramel tones, wet pine sap, the apricot, peach, pineapple fruit scents generous as well, hints at a bitter herbaceousness underneath but this component all but fully submerged in the sweetness, likewise the florality too delicate to spread widely. Full-bodied, more of a balanced presentation in the mouth as the hops can truly work on a tongue and fully bring a dry peppery, grassy bite into the mix. Before it does so, however, lots of space granted to the honey, molasses. caramel and chocolate and the ever-bodacious pink grapefruit, tangelo, lime citrus juice. The pine has more snap to it, the florality still too timid. The carbonation is credible but largely ineffective against the gluey mouth feel. A thicker, sweeter style of DIPA.

Ehhhh this is a below average DIPA. Its on the hot side. Smooth is an accolade I'd shove under the rug. Alcohol is up front and personal. The hop profile is watered and the malts are stale.

For the price this is out of its league.

Yikes. I'm 0 for 2 from this brewery.
