3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 5, 2014 Had on tap in Maui, and liked it so much I had to grab a growler on the way out. Dangerously drinkable; one of the smoothest DIPAs Iíve had, and the brewery posted its abv at 11.1. Lots of citra, which I love, but nothing mind blowing palate-wise; just rock solid and masks itís abv better than any beer Iíve had personally. Not the delicious flavor bomb of a Three Floyds DIPA, but an absolutely wonderful beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden-amber, thin head, mango and orange nose. Sweet and fruity character. Sticky malts have a touch of crystal. Nice hop character, maybe a bit too burly to truly enjoy more than a few sips, though.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
GABF 2013. Pours a hazy orange appearance with a khaki head. Garlic-y, onion, tropical fruity, mango, pineapple aroma. Flavor has a weirdly stale taste to it that honestly reminded me of a six month old can of Big Swell IPA that I opened recently. Some tropical fruits in the flavor but kind of strange and dull at the same time.
