From BeerAdvocate Magazine #79 (Aug 2013):

Nothing earth shattering here, just an all around good DIPA. Mellow but very flavorful. The 8.5% ABV is pretty well hidden. We were wondering if The Kind IPA had a big brother—this one will appease the hopheads.

STYLE: Double IPA
ABV: 8.5%
AVAILABILITY: Year-round

LOOK: Bright golden hue, good frothing

SMELL: Dank hop resin, pineapple, orange rind, peppery alcohol, rose water, apricots, bready maltiness

TASTE: Smooth, mild crispness, bitty, ripe fruit, pronounced bitterness, soft dank hop flavor, orange pulp, citrus zest, kiss of caramel, toasted grain, leafy, yeast, warming, semidry finish with a long, lingering hoppiness

12oz bottle poured into a snifter. Pours a hazy orange amber color. Three fingers of head and blotchy lacing. Sweet caramel scent with some fruitiness. Dense feel with some resiny texture. Taste is sweet initially, then the alcohol is evident and it finishes with a delayed bitter aftertaste. Interesting DIPA. I liked it more than it's The Kind IPA brethren. (8.0)

Poured from a bottle into a tulip

A. A hazy tangerine color with a 1 finger foamy head that subsides quickly.

S. The nose gives off a nice balance of sweet malts and hops. Slight citrus, pineapple, banana.

T. Very nice balance of malts and citrus hops. Very enjoyable. Notes of pineapple and banana agreeing with the nose. A mild hop resin aftertaste.

M. Medium bodied. Decent carbonation but there could be more. Finishes slightly dry.

O. A nice IPA. Looks good but then the head just disappears. Smells nice. Tastes better. Could use a little more carbonation but all in all a nice beer.
