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

12 oz bottle served in to a standard pint glass

A- A fairly aggressive pour brings out a single finger head covering a light orange/gold body. Minimal lacing and rising carbonation.

S- Lots and lots of pine. Smells like a Christmas tree. A tiny bit of grapefruit, but this one is really all pine on the nose.

T- Really bitter hops hit me first. Everything else follows the nose to a T. I get a little bit of malt, but it's not quite enough to balance it. The taste is far from bad, but there is something that is slightly off-putting. Perhaps it is the relationship between the sweet and bitter tastes.

M- Leaning towards the thin side, but with a moderate amount of carbonation. Finishes quickly and crisply.

O- Not my favorite representation of the style, but it's the best I can do in this little college town of Alfred.

From notes, purchased from the Growler Station in NYC, drank later that night.

Pours a hazy gold color, pretty clear with a decent white head.

Aromas are grapefruit, resin, and lemon.

Taste is just like the nose, hoppy, bitter with some grapefruit, resin, and resiny hops, also kind of dusty.  Finish is crisp, lightly sweet with some crystal malt flavors.  

Mouthfeel is smooth and full bodied.

Overall, a pretty good DIPA, not quite up to top notch standards, but still good.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Appearance: Clearness, but a nice slightly darker color for an IPA
smell: brilliant clean hoppy smell
Taste: Amazing. It has a strong hoppy character, but its not jarring, ripping, or brutal. its like being hit on the tongue like a velvet wrapped hammer.
Mouthfeel: full malty backbone for a IPa, yet still to style. Excellent

To me this is a perfect double IPA. It just works on all levels and is so good that even a malt loving person like myself can enjoy its flavors.
If you see it, get it. Its a great beer for a great price.
