My wife bought the Yin and the Yang, to share on a fun evening. We tried, unsuccessfully, to make black and tans. The beers, on their own, though, were worth the try. Yang is a golden hued, caramel-colored liquid with a relatively thin white head. The aroma is of hops and booze, and the taste is intense, but a little one-dimensional. A bit of fruit, some malt, and bitterness, but not really a depth of complexity. Full in body and warming. Just okay.

12 FL. OZ. 10% bottle poured into a tulip glass. Hazy golden color with frothy, three fingers tall off white foam. Excellent lacing. Aroma is dominated by sweet malts and plenty of fruity hops, mainly apricots. There is some toasted bread and honey. Some floral hops. Flavor follows aroma. Long lasting, heavy sweetness balanced with pleasant amount of bitterness. Medium body, oily texture, average carbonation and some spiciness best describe a mouth feel. Long dry finish.

It is a very, very tasty beer. Alcohol is well covered so be careful with that one. Missing some IBU in my opinion. I love malty characters of imperial IPA's, but in this case some more bitterness would be welcomed.

Dark orange and hazy. Almost a Amber look.

Smell is nice. Nice floral character.

Taste is bitter with a decent hop profile.

Feel is syrupy. So so.

Ok DIPA. I think it would have been better if I had it colder.

Four-pack copped from Bottle King. After much touting, I was rather disappointed by this brew. Needless to say the high ABV gets in the way of drinkability, and the alcohol is certainly detectable, not very well hidden. Strong malt backbone makes this beer impart something of a slight caramel flavor. Not a huge fan.

From 32GP. In Teku glass. Watchin Los Soprano 1x07-08. Great DIPA. Lots of fruityness with the adequate amount of bitterness, just what I expected. Very pleasant in mouth. Dangerously drinkable

12 oz bottle poured into a Savor snifter.

Pours a clear amber color with a full finger of foam that laces the glass as it recedes. Aroma has a nice biting hoppiness to it, but the smell doesn't permeate the room like some hop bombs do. Also detecting some alcohol heat in the nose.

First sip has a familiar rush of floral hoppy flavor with a very long, lingering bitter finish. This beer doesn't hold back on the IBUs, but it comes off a touch harsh and a touch hot. This could maybe use some more body or something to keep the aftertaste in line.

A serviceable IIPA, but a bit too boozy and harshly bitter.
