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

22 oz. bottle, purchased locally at Whole Foods ($4.89). Bottle dated November 17th, a month old.

A: Poured into tulip glass. Clear amber, with 1" of just-off-white head that settles fairly quickly, leaving a thin, consistent, sticky lacing.

S: Bright grapefruit & pineapple; grassy, with some floral. Fairly simple.

T: Pine resin, then citrus and pineapple; malt in the middle; growing bitterness that lingers; well-masked alcohol.

M: Medium carbonation and medium body. Some heat. Resiny, dry finish.

O: A big, well balanced DIPA that presents its hops full force, offset with a fruity, sweeter side. Very drinkable and a good value.

Pours a bright semi hazy orange with an off white head. Smell is big on grapefruit citrus pine and pineapple with some booze to back it up underneath it all. Smells sticky sweet. Feel like I made a good choice for my tropical dinner.

Initially a little on the sour side. Not nearly as bitter as expected but the bottle has some age on it I know for sure. Slightly medicinal but only cause the noticeable booze. Big caramel sweet malt backbone up front. Big juicy body, hops are starting to come through know with plenty of citrus and pine which pairs well with the tropical fruit presence. Bitterness is making itself known now too. Wow this beers getting better.

Ibus are proving themselves here. Bitter but not in a bad way. Good hop selection I guess. Overall another good double ipa to turn to.

Intended score B+

At the start let me say- it's not Hercules Double IPA- my favorite beer. But.. for the price- it's bloody fantastic! Where I live it's about half the price of Hercules.

So.. Appearance: lots of reddish hues. Looks like the real deal. Pours well. A fair head. Not outstanding but OK.

The smell is rich in many flavors. Hops of course, but also a little more malt than I expect in an IPA taste.

Taste is somewhat complex in that it's not overly hoppy, and not too malty. But both are present. As a kind of high alcohol bomber bottle beer- it is highly drinkable. Not a session beer to be sure, but I can handle more than one of these- compared to my sainted Hercules.

Mouthfeel is good enough. And thats all thats needed.

Overall I give this good marks for hanging in there as a somewhat tasty IPA, yet highly drinkable- AND relatively cheap. A good deal !
