Quite the looker with it's dark orange color. Cloudy for the style, but a beauty. A bright white head, no more than a finger thick lives up top. The head has short legs, but looks great before it gives way.

Disappointing nose in that you have to search for the scents, you'd think an IIPA would be spewing out aromas, but here that's not the case.

All I can pick up is alcohol and pine. No citrus, no fruit of any sort, just some standard malts and one dimensional hops. Oh yea...and alcohol. Very medicinal, almost like Listerine.

It's a mouth warmer. The alcohol heat is very pronounced. Lacks complexity, no balance. Due to the strong alcohol presence, it feels more full bodied than it probably is.

Very disappointed in this. Not much different than taking a shot of Vodka. Lacks smell and flavor, even as the beer warms nothing evolves. It's just hot.

Pours a darker amber color with off-white head. Caramel malt, some pine and a very earthy note on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finish is earthy mushrooms.

12 oz.

Pours a clear amber orange, an inch of off-white head that is very fluffy and retains well.

Smells of bready malts and floral and citrus hops. Hints of rose.

Tastes of maple, bready malts, citrus, and floral and piney hops. Nice hop bite in the finish.

Full body with stinging carbonation on the tongue.

Very good double IPA, very tasty and certainly deserves recognition. There are still a few in the style I'd take before this, but not many and I certainly wouldn't turn this one down. Hope to have it again.

Yang pours a hazy dark golden color with a big lacing head. There is a huge hoppy aroma. The taste is also big hops, very bitter, very bold, with some earthy notes. Big flavors, good body. Overall its very strong, alcohol comes through, good sipping beer.
