look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tulip. No freshness date... age unknown.

L: Golden brown pour. Thin head... leaves a thin rim of lacing.

S: Caramel hops and mild citrus... a bit of pine.

T/F: Sweet caramel malts... bitter... light citrus. Herbal and pine... somewhat earthy. Medium bodied... fair carbonation. A bit boozy.

O: A below average DIPA... maybe past its best-by, but not enough here to revisit.

My kind of beer. The best brew from Appalachian, especially on draft. So good, I usually have two on draft and take a 6 pack home. Usually there are 12 beers on tap and this is the one I like best. Makes the 70 mile round trip worth it.

From tuesday 2/13. 12oz bottle into a pint glass. No freshness dating, but since it's a Spring release, going to assume it's around 9 months old.

Doesn't look too good. Murky orange/amber body, small white head. Minimal lacing.

Sweet and malty aroma.

Well, I'm surprised, but there is still a trace of the hops signature. Solid malt background. Likely not what it should be, but still an okay drink.

Mouth around medium, and a little flat. Slightly bitter finish.

Overall, considering the age, it doesn't taste too bad. Will re-review if I come across a fresh bottle.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a burnt orange color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of malts, light citrus. Taste is malts, mild citrus and bitterness, faint hints of alcohol. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall, not bad, but this beer seems a bit outta focus for the style. It kind of drinks like a high abv English IPA.

A- Copper color with amber highlights. Minimal head but leaves a mountainous lacing on my pint.

S- earthy and citrus hop with faint caramel malt.

F- mild citrus hops. more earthy taste. pine and caramel malt notes round it out.

M- heavy and boozy. the pine and caramel linger in the mouth.

O- double IPA's are hit or miss usually but this one ranks right in the middle.

Looks decent. Scent is faint, subtle fruitiness and some citrus. Arg...flavor is different. The malt takes over quickly and clashes with the hops in a metallic sort of way. Decent carbonation and finish. Um...no

Poured into a custom pint glass: color is copper, transparent, head is very light tan with small bubbles, presents about 1/2 inch thick and lingers well with nice lacing.

Smell is feint, with citrus hops and light malt and caramel, that becomes more evident with warmth.

Taste is blend of citrus rind hops and pine notes, light hop spiciness, then prominent malt notes with caramel and toast. ABV is hidden well.

Mouthfeel is well carbonated and bitter, linger sharp bitter quality on the tongue.

Overall a well executed DIPA but the flavor seem to be a bit neutral - blend of hops but solid malt backbone.
