3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy orange-tan. Fluffy, steady off-white head. Bitter and resinous, bold full bodied IIPA. Rich and big, almost like a big Belgian ale sometimes, with the grassy bitter hops and massive malt tones. The oak is minimal, not like a barrel would impart. A nice beer, a little bit light malt profile than most IIPAs. OK, classic in most respects.

This is a really solid DIPA that honest-to-Jebus reminds me of drinking straight-up grapefruit juice at times. If the sweetness was a little lower, with all other aspects kept the same, this would be among the best in the style. Still quite good, and still worthy of purchase.

Can from Ellwood Thompsonís. Actually a nice pour- dark golden with nice pillowy head. Not a palate wrecker. I get caramel, some peach, and some grass on the nose. Caramelly flavor too. Not that bitter which is what I usually like. I get a flatness which is probably from the oak chips mentioned in the info.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at 21st Amendment. A finger thick white head sits on top of an unclear golden body. The aroma has some sweetish notes, but is mostly on the peachy, grassy and tropical fruity side. Pine cone notes too. Some alcohol notes in the mouth, full body and pleasant, soft carbonation. Sweet flavor with a good bitterness. Pine cones, peaches and orange peel too. Bitter, fruity and a tad sweet finish that lasts. Overall, too sweet, but also nice. 130805

Had a taste of this on tap as a flight at the brewpub in SF. This is a big boy, and maybe a touch too sweet for my palate. Boozy, too.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can dated caned two months ago. Pour has a rich golden color and a thin coating of white head. Aroma has heavy hops, pine resins, citrus, orange peel, and some bitterness. Mouth feel is full for the style and the carbonation is average. Flavor is really heavy handed with the hops, big bitterness, pine, citrus, perfume, oak tannins, and some heat into the lingering finish. This is almost overdone on the hop side and the oak just lends to it coming off even more crushing.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can sampled at rustico in alexandria va august 2013
Pours bright orange with a small soapy white head and great lacing. Nose is bigtime floral lite wood sweet nectar lite grapefruit and slight cheese. Flavors are mostly floral and sweet. Some bitterness comes through about mid palate. Long bone dry tangerine woody finish. This is pretty solid iipa here if you ask me. A little on the sweet side however complex and interesting. As it warms the booze comes out hardcore and becomes an alcohol and hop bomb not so great. This beer had promises but it really didnt deliver.
