3.74/5  rDev -5.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

On first pour, I can tell this is going to be a little different. The beer immediately foams up to the top of the glass, almost overflowing. It takes a long time to settle, and it settles unevenly, looking like the sudsy foam of an overflowing washing machine. One it settles, it looks pretty good: there's still plenty of head, tons of lacing around the glass, and a cloudy orange beer underneath. It looks good, but I think the carbonation needs to be controlled better. I did not shake the beer or anything. It has been sitting in the refrigerator. 3.5

Smell is pretty good. At first, it was sweet and citrusy, like some kind of lemon candy. As it warms up, it's starting to smell kind of sweaty, but not terrible. 3.75

Taste is surprisingly good. There's none of that funky smell in the flavor. It's light citrus and smooth, sweet malt. 3.75

Feel is decent despite the appearance of over-carbonation. Not quite the dense, sticky feel of some of the top-tier DIPAs, but solid. 3.75

This is a well-made IPA: smooth, tasty, and easy to drink.

Poured into an IPA glass. Moderately hazy golden amber color with a frothy large white head. Nice retention and good lacing. Bright aromas of pineapple, grapefruit, mangoes, and a bit of pine - not much malt presence here. The taste followed with bitter orange, grapefruit, some berry, some pine, and a bit of piney resin. Present but understated malt presence but enough to provide slight sweetness and a nice body. A great beer.

Great nose on this one. Prickly citrus hops linger on the palate. Tons of fruity hop aftertaste. This is a SOLID imperial IPA. Of Blue Pants offerings, I put this one right there with their pils, which is world class. Great DIPA, get it if you can.

Review #800! On tap at LD's Beer Run, Jackson, MS

A: Opaque amber with a thick, white 2 finger head that almost refused to settle. Thick lacing.

S: Good God, I could smell this beauty for days. West Coast hoppiness, heavy citrus love, featuring orange, lemons and mangoes. Lots of pine resin, too. Can one have an olfactory orgasm?

T: And the West Coast hits home with a sledgehammer. Nothing subtle about these hops. Aggressive, sultry and citrus-y as hell. Low bitterness. High taste factor.

M: Medium with medium, creamy carbonation.

O: This came as a complete surprise. One of the best DIPA's I've ever had. Must have more. Fresh and deadly.

On tap at the brewery.
Clear, dark gold. Smells citrusy and sweet. Really hoppy, vaguely caramelly. The taste is a well-executed, consummate DIPA a la old-school 90 Minute. Tons of malt then WHAM! classic American hops. Citrus peel, pine needles, dank weed(s). It's really good. Highly recommended.

Reminds me of some of the West Coast Imperial IPA's. Don't let some of the earlier ratings fool you; this beer has gotten much better. It's very drinkable for a high gravity beer. Nice balance and not too sweet. Very pleasant hop aroma.

A great example of a double IPA. I had this once before, but as promised by the brewery, this batch is much better (and that is really saying something, as the last batch was good as well!). This is a nice dry, light colored, extremely clear double IPA with a great citrus and pine aroma and flavor. The 8.7% ABV is very well hidden. I would put this up against any of the more well known double IPA's from the west coast.

Fresh on Draft, Batch from Feb 2014, in Tulip at the source

Look: Crystal clean, coppery color
Smell: Huge hit of aroma from the hops. Tons and Tons of aroma
Taste: Just a complex array of tons of hoppy characters. Not overly bitter, floral, citrus, grapefruit.
Feel: Love the mounthfeel as its not as heavy as some doubles that I feel like stick to your mouth. This has that a little but not nearly as much as others. Kinda at the perfect level.

12 ounce bottle -> New Belgium globe glass

A - hazy medium gold pour with a tiny one quarter inch head, no retention, and no lacing.

S - very powerful smell. Citrus fruit, bread, and pine notes shine through.

T - Big flavor. A bit unbalanced as the hops overpower the malt but I love a good hoppy DIPA and this one fits the bill. Grapefruit notes are present and well as a piney finish.

M - medium thick but not much carbonation.

O - I love supporting Alabama breweries and this is a worthy offering. I'm a bit baffled by the lack of head, but I have three more bottles and will see what the others do.

Many thanks to richj1970 for sending this.

A - Poured ice cold with substantial chill haze, copper tan color, massive amounts of carbonation, and a thick, billowy, three fingered creamy foam head. As the beer warms the chill haze starts to subside (somewhat). Massively sticky foam that looks like cotton candy.

S - Citrus, light pine, a hint of peach, crisp malt, and a slight aromatic tang.

T - Definitely a hop forward beer with floral and grapefruit from start to finish. The malt presence is only there to boost the ABV and keep the massive amount of hops in check. The bitterness is aggressive and lingering. As I work through the bottle some spiciness starts to surface.

M - Medium body with light prickly carbonation turning to a creamy finish.

O - Way too carbonated on the pour, there's not much you can do to keep the carbonation from filling half of the glass. Looks like a homebrew but makes up for the looks in taste. Nothing complex, just straight forward in your face hop bitterness. Amarillo hops in this one?

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from 12 oz bottle into tulip glass. Bottle date is 6/22/2013.

A: Pours a cloudy copper red bordering on honey brown with huge 4 or 5 finger fluffy white head. Nice retention and lacing.

S: The nose is all hops. Piney resin, citrus, and floral notes.

T: Citrus and bitter from the hops dominate. A nice crispness makes for a refreshing beer.

M: Heavily carbonated and light on the tongue. A bit dry in the finish.

O: Nice IPA. I might have preferred a bit of malt or sweetness to help balance the hops, but enjoyable non the less. It's nice to see the local guys turning out a quality product.

12 oz bottle pours a murky copper color with a fine-bubbled, long lasting tan head. Retention and lace are both excellent, but the brew is a bit dark and cloudy for a higher score.

Nose is a wonderful blast of citric and tropical hops yet has an odd yogurt tang to it. You can tell lots of hops were used at the end of boil, but the overall aroma leaves a bit to be desired.

Thickness of the body carries through, but it is neither overly malty or yeasty. Odd, yet pleasant..unique is a good descriptor. The hops are bold, delivering a tropical hop blast with a side of plain yogurt. That might not sound all that great, but I am pretty happy with a 4-pack purchase of this. I like the dry-hopping and the malt is light despite the dark color. I would buy this again if I were to find myself passing through Alabama again...there are a few breweries there doing some cool shit.
