4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Tap from the rhythm and brews fest. They hit a home run with his one. Amazing all the way. One of the best IPAís I have had and it takes a lot to impress me. Poured a great copper color with a nice off white head. Left plenty of lacing on the glass. Head retained throughout the entire beer. Aroma was citrus, grapefruit, pines, spruce and hops. Flavor was hops, hops and more hops. Sticky and oily mouthfeel. Blistered in the finish with more dry hops. This is what a great IPA should taste like.

Capped 750 from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours hazy,dirty orange gold with a foamy/frothy white head. Wow. This has citrus, resin, floral. Nose pounding. So, thatís a bit over the top, but itís a very powerful aroma. Med+ body. Flavor is earthier than the aroma suggests, with lots of citrus, and some resin. It has an earthiness that youíd find with coffee - tho I donít think Iím getting coffee. Lots and lots of flavors, and the finish is dry, bitter and hoppy. Really good ale.

Pint at the Flying Saucer during the Plate Showdown. This was clear and coppery with little head. A floral hop character but more than that. Citrus and some pine, too. Caramel and grain are significant. It was generally dry. A nice beer and one that has an attitude.

Dark copper, thin head. White lacing. Grapefruit. Not a heavy body, so it trashy accentuates the hops.

750 ml bottle. Pours a hazy burnt orange color with a huge off-white head that laces the glass. Aroma of citrus peel, resinous and oily hops, caramel malts, and floral notes. The flavor follows the same notes for the most part; resinous, floral, oily, and bitter, with some sweetness to back it all up. Medium-bodied, with medium carbonation. Another good DIPA from these guys.

Amber orange pour with some white head. Big time hops on the nose - pine, floral, and resin. Very balanced - nice mix of citrus and pine hops backed up by a good amount of caramel and biscuit malt.

It poured a copper color with a small tan head. The aroma was of honey, some caramel, a little orange overall rich and citrusy. The taste was of grapefruit, a little bitter, with some medium sweetness. A very good IPA.
