look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

16oz draft pour.

A: Ruby / orange color that is cloudy. Low carbonation and thin, soapy head with slight lacing.

S: Sticky, resinous pine and grapefruit.

T: Dank, earthy, grassy, leathery dryness and bitterness. Then slight grapefruit, pineapple, caramel and biscuit sweetness. Enough relief provided from malt and citrus that taste is not too bitter.

M: Creamy with some bite, more bitter finish, and warm on the throat.

O: Great flavor and scents. Impressed with mouthfeel as it manages to have bitter bite but it doesn't kill your tastebuds like many double ipas.

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

12 oz can. Pours glowing hazy golden amber with a small creamy off white head that goes to a thin fil and laces the glass.

The aroma is a bit subdued - sweet caramel malt and piney, resiny hops.

The flavor is sweet nutty caramel malts and fruit with a big piney resiny bitter hop finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, more like an imperial red with to nutty caramel malts and big piney resiny hops.

From the can, poured into a tulip

Appearance: amber-copper colored and wonderfully bright. Without a doubt, this is one of the brightest beers I’ve seen in a long while. The head is a light tan that fades quickly. The short lifespan of the head prevents this beer’s appearance from what would likely otherwise be a 5.

Aroma: some hop aroma, but far from 2X IPA standards. The malt aroma is more akin to cardboard, and maybe old bread. The aroma isn’t off-putting, it just isn’t super inviting.

Flavor: quite enjoyable. The malt flavor is restrained, allowing the hops to be the showcase. The malt comes through with a mild cardboard flavor as in the nose, not oxidized per se, but like a lick-the-envelope flavor. The alcohol is detectable, but more as a background contributor.

Mouthfeel: spot on for what a 2X IPA should be – light-medium. There is some weight here, but you could easily drink several of these beers.

Overall: enjoyable, but more hops are needed to really make this beer stand out. The hop flavors are good, but a bit light for a 2X IPA. A 6-pk runs $14, which is a bit pricey for this beer, but I’d readily buy this beer if offered as a single.
