Wanted to love this based on reviews but just don't get it. Pours syrupy, dark golden and looks great. Leaves one hell of a lacing but has a strange aroma. taste was overly bitter on the mid palate and finished with an indescribable off taste, maybe oxidation? Ended up pouring this one out.

Yep. Double IPA that tastes piney. No juiciness or anything special for me.

A- About average.
S- Good nose; kinda sweet, citrus with a touch of alcohol
T- Not that great. VERY boozy, a bit too sweet for an IPA. A bit too floral and too little citrus for what I like in a DIPA. Lake Erie Monster is MUCH better.
M- A bit thin and flat.
O- Meh. Would rather have Lake Erie Monster... or the new Rye of the Tiger when it comes out.
