Got a couple of these from finebeerguy. Thanks! No bottling date, but I believe this is quite fresh - 2 weeks old at most.

This smells like straight hop pellets after uncapping the bottle: pretty dank and aromatic. The pour is dark, cloudy, and amber hued, topped by three fingers of froth that leaves sheets of lacing. The nose is equal amounts pine and citrus, with a solid backbone of caramel malt. It's a little yeasty and soapy, too, but hops are dominant, bringing to mind candied oranges. Smells quite good, but not exceptional. Tastes citrus forward and fairly resinous. Big pine notes from the hop bill, backed by a good mount of caramel sweetness. Hops take on an herbal, almost minty profile toward the finish. Body is medium, heavier than I'd like. The malt backbone feels too substantial. The finish is quite bitter, but never as dry as I'd like - malt lingers well into the finish. This is enjoyable on the whole, but not overly memorable.

Thanks to CPAbeer and Stormking47 for this one.

App- A good darker hazy orange with some soft yellow floating downwards. Very nice one in head that was off white with a ton of cling down the glass.

Smell- Fairly unbalanced amount of malts and citrus. A large bitter and had some of that Shorts Spruce pilsner spice on the nose with with some dampness behind it.

Taste- This is what I said about regular Huma. Wow. This is a small bottle but has some huge flavors with it. Now double this one but doesnt all mesh well together. A lot of bitter behind this one and a bit dry on the flavor. Only a fraction of the citrus from the nose comes on the profile. More creamy and full hops with some spice come out.

Mouth- A fuller medium body with a medium carbonation that is a bit dry with a nice big bitter flavor. Lots of creamy and spicy hops on the finish.

Drink- This is quite spicy and bitter with the best of the other American IPA's but still has a strong creamy presence behind it. A nice beer but this profile is not for me.

I had this one fresh at the brewery in August, but just decided to crack open a bottle and review it. I remember when I had it on tap, I was not overly impressed.

Appearance - Poured into a snifter, the beer was the standard copper of a DIPA with very modest white bubbles floating at the top.

Smell - I do not get much in the aroma. There is more malt than hops or citrus.

Taste - The resin is at the front. It is like the most bitter lemon I have ever had. Any fruit presence is mild and toward the sides of the tongue. There is also a certain peppery spiciness to this one. The bitterness continues in the aftertaste. This fits the definition of what I would call a "hop bomb".

Mouthfeel - For a double, this seems a little thin to me. The relative thickness allows the bitterness to linger, I am waiting for a hidden aspect that never seems to happen.

Overall - I have had better DIPAs. I probably wouldn't seek this one.

Small bottle from Steve. Pours light grapefruit body with generous retained head. Mild hop aroma. A good drinkable bitterness, high IBU but not a palate shredder, fuller mouthfeel. Surprised at the high level of alcohol, it was well hid. Bottled in April, received in May. Good 1.5X IPA.
