A: pours a deep gold that might as well be light brown with an off white dense two finger head that retains very well in a Duvel Tulip
S: smells of earthy and herbal hops, general bitterness and an underlying sweetness
T: earthy and herbal hops and some citrus. very green hop flavor but the malt doesn't come out. swallow is some herbal and earthy hop flavor and a bit of toasted malt
M: soft and slightly prickly carbonation with a slightly heavy mouthfeel
O: good bitterness and decent hop flavor. The malt is there in the background but it struggles to balance the bitterness although the beer looks to have plenty of color. I wasn't too impressed at first but it's growing on me the more I drink it.

[email protected] Rivers. Sweet and hoppy, but without the bitter finish that a good DoubleIPA should, still pretty tasty, maybe i scored it too low, but i didn¬ít get into it that much. As i say, this is quite average for a Double IPA, so my score reflects that.

Fresh bottle sent directly to Toronto from the brewer. Fairly mild DIPA, hoppiness noted however its not the hops in the face expectation of the style. Light creamy yellow body with no observed head. Medium mouthfeel. A bit much malt. Decent drinkability.

A: nice long lasting creamy head. Translucent amber color.

S: smells sweet and malty, but crisp. A little bit of oakiness to it too.

T: very malt forward. Not a significant amount of hops. Not bad though. Oaky taste too.

M: pretty smooth. I like its feel. The hops is in the finish.

O: not a bad dipa. Not a worldbeater but would probably be a nice draught.

22 ounce bomber poured into a Belgian style tulip glass

A: Mahogany, amber, reddish color with an off white creamy head, dissipated fairly quick, some minor lacing, lots of tiny bubbles streaming up the glass side.

A: Lots of caramel, sweet syrupy aromas, not getting any fruity, tropical, piney notes, smells nothing like a IIPA. No alcohol on the nose.

T: Not a lot of bitterness, caramel, sweet syrupy flavors, I am getting zero hop flavors on this beer, nothing but malty sweetness, I think Six Rivers may have bottled the wrong beer in this IIPA label

M: Despite the aroma and taste, this has a creamy mouthfeel, reminds of an amber creamy mouthfeel, but not much else for this beer.

O: Allegedly there are "copious amounts of whole Cascade and Columbus hop," and I didn't' catch them in the beer. The beer is labeled a IIPA but there was nothing about this beer that made me believe I was drinking a IIPA, it's okay, more along the lines of an amber ale, maybe it's old and the hop qualities have died off, but definitely disappointed as I was expecting a hop bomb.

Ordered from Blackwell's in San Francisco. 22oz bomber poured into a pint glass (my chalice was dirty)

Weird beer. Not sure what to make of it. Sports a DEEP copper brown appearance and reeks of malt. Text my buddy that it must be labeled wrong as a DIPA, but apparently it is. Huge malty flavor. Oily and thick and boozy at 9.3%

Not your typical DIPA. Give it a whirl if you can.
