look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12oz bottle. Served in a snifter glass. Pours a darker caramel body, slightly hazy, one finger white head, fair retention, lots of lacing. Smell is pine, resin, more pine and resin, and perhaps a bit of caramel sweetness. It's heavy on the hops, yet fairly sweet and caramel-forward. Flavour is very nice, though- sweet caramel balanced by slick resinous and pine bitterness, light tropical fruit, even a bit of honey and biscuit. Moderate pine bitterness on the backend. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, good carbonation, moderate bitterness with a bit of resin and floral notes on the backend. A big beer no doubt, and certainly a doubled up version of Huma.

from the hoppy holidays 12 pack. bottled 10/25/16

Appearance- from a hardy pour it's a transparent copperish orange color. frothy with the slightest off white head that leaves some decent lacing.

Aroma- boozy with some light tropical fruit notes.

Taste- just like the smell. some biscuit notes trying to push through with some pineapple and tangerine hop notes mingling with the alcohol. bitterness kinda hangs in the back.

Mouthfeel- medium/ slight heavy bodied. great carbonation for the abv and the body.

Drinkability- easily gonna kill the three out of the 12 pack tonight. they need to bring this out in six packs.

Overall- as a double huma I can see it. the booze is very noticeable which I could see being it's most downfall. this brew isn't too shabby. regular huma from a bottle has bitterness that kinda kills the hop flavor. this beer the hop notes that are noticeable but I feel the alcohol battle it. this being a higher abv the body is really top notch.

I got a bottle of this from the hoppy holiday mixed 12pck from Meijer's. It poured a clear copper with white head that is not leaving much lace. The scent had tangerine hint mixed with spruce tip. The taste was nicely balanced between malt pine resin hop. The Mouthfeel is fuller in body with good carbonation. Overall it's a solid beer.

I picked up a bottle of Short's Aww Jeah in their new hoppy variety pack. I missed the first bottling of this beer and I'm happy to have a chance to try it now, so lets see how it goes. 2016 Vintage. Poured from a brown 12oz bottle into an IPA glass.

A_ The label looks nice, it's got a decent design and it's a little eye catching. It poured an amber orange color that took on more of a darker orange color when held to the light with two and half fingers worth of creamy light tan head that died down to a thin layer that stayed till the end and it left some nice rings of spotty and patchy lacing behind. This is a very nice looking beer, I have no complaints.

S- The aroma starts off with a higher amount of medium sweetness with the hops being the first to show up and the impart a good mixture of tropical fruity, citrus, orange juice, pineapple, dank and green hop aromas with the fruitier hops seeming to stick out the most and the fruity aspects have a light creamy aroma to them. Up next comes a little bit of doughy yeast that leads into the malts which impart a sweet malt, pale malt, caramel malt, light toasted malt, light bready and bread crust like aromas. This beer has a very nice aroma, the hop profile is good and so is the balance.

T- The taste seems to be similar to the taste and it starts off with a higher amount of medium sweetness with the hops still being the first to show up and they impart all the same aspects that they did in the aroma with dank and green hops showing up a little more this time, but it's still the fruity aspects that stick out the most, but not by much. Up next comes a slight bit of doughy yeast that leads into the malts which imparts all the same aspects that they did in the aroma, but this time they are just slightly lighter. On the finish there;s a slightly lower amount of high bitterness with a little more sweetness and it had a very dank and green hop like aftertaste with just a little bit of fruity hops and malts showing up too. This is a good tasting beer, the hop profile is still nice and so is the balance.

M- A little smooth, slightly cloying, slightly sticky, a little boozy, slightly chewy, on the lighter side of being full bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. The mouthfeel is pretty nice, but I wish it was a little smoother and not slightly cloying.

Overall I thought this was a good beer and good example of the style, like a lot of Short's double IPA's this one was pretty intense, but it still managed to stick out a little with the combination of hop flavors and the balance. This beer had ok drinkability, one is enough for me, anymore than that and it would start to be too intense. What I like the most about this beer is the appearance and aroma, they are both very nice and they are the highlights of this beer. What I like the least about this beer is the mouthfeel, it's not bad, but I wish it was smoother. I would buy this beer again if it was available on it's own, but it's a little too intense to drink often and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a nice, strong and intense DIPA. All in all I was happy with this beer, but I still think there's a little room for improvement. It's not a favorite Short's beer and it's a good example of the style. Good job guys, this is one tasty and intense Double IPA.

Quite excellent. Poured from bottle to IPA glass. Clear honey gold color with a few fingers of white foamy head that leaves rings of lacing behind. Aroma is huge and awesome. Sweet caramel malt, floral and sticky sweet tropical notes dominate the nose. Flavor is sweet upfront with a big bitter backend, but tempered and balanced. Tropical fruits (mango, papaya) mingle with pine and biscuit malt, and bit of orange rind to boot. Big and beautiful.

12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 10/25/2016. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy golden orange color with a 2 finger dense and rocky off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of huge tangerine, pineapple, peach, grapefruit, mango, lemon/orange peel, citrus rind, pine, honey, light caramel, biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness. Fantastic aromas with great balanced and complexity of juicy/dank citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of huge tangerine, pineapple, peach, grapefruit, mango, lemon/orange peel, citrus rind, pine, honey, light caramel, biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness. Large amount of pine/citrus rind/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of tangerine, pineapple, peach, grapefruit, mango, lemon/orange rind, pine, honey, biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of juicy/dank citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate pale malt flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance; and some light lingering hop astringency after the finish, but not overwhelming. Medium carbonation and medium-plus bodied; with a very smooth, sticky/resinous, fairly creamy, and slightly slick balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Minimal warming alcohol for 10.4%. Overall this is an incredible DIPA! All around fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of juicy/dank citrus/tropical/pine hops and moderate pale malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink for the big ABV. Still feels very juicy all around, despite the strong bitter/resinous flavors. A highly enjoyable offering.
