4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Location: Draft at BRC, 4/1/14
Aroma: It has a resiny aroma, with some pine, and caramel notes
Appearance: Murky dark orange pour, with a white head, and a rather coating lace
Flavor: The taste is very much the same, with resiny hops, pine, and a mild caramel sweetness
Palate: This one has a medium-full body, with a soft carbonation, and a really nice mouthfeel
I liked this one. It was a really nice DIPA, but even moreso, it had a great pour and a great feel. It probably won’t live up to other beers I have given a 4.2, but I just couldn’t think of reasons to go under a 5 on appearance or palate.

Good start with a very nice hop aroma but the flavor was not there, a good beer but overhyped

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Crystal clear copper pour. Small white head. This is a citrus, pine, floral nicely bitter beer. Has a sweet malt presence, and a rather light body. Solid DIPA, but not amazing.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Son let me just explain this beer. Big citrus blast upon opening, big citrus and pine ripe tropical fruit taste. Dry as hell. Malty balance. Just punches you in the mouth in the best way. This are insane good and for 8.5% abc you can’t even tell. Exceptional beer. Drink tons of these.

3/26/2014. From bottle. Amber color with a white head. Fresh hoppy aromas with pine, caramel and citrus. Good balance and very nice flavors throughout. Bitter finish and definitely one I’d drink again.

This one is extra smooth... as if you weren’t to notice. Color: copper. Head: Thin and white, but who cares? Its a smooth, dangerous beer with little aroma. It’s an imperial made sessionable. Floral and cool. Watch your back. It’s dangerous to drink beers this good.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a dark amber with a high, fine-grained, smooth lacy white head. Nose is very perfumey; lime, some grapefruit, amber incense, and frankincense. Round and oddly smoky on the tongue; there is hops present, but not as intense as I expect, nor is there malty sweetness present to balance it out. It’s bitter, but it’s an acrid, aromatic bitterness. Very odd.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear amber with a thin, bubbly, eggshell head. Nice citrusy aroma with some caramel and pineapple. The taste is a little thin and a touch harsh; fruity sweetness and some bitterness that would probably be very subtle if this beer had a little more backbone. Medium bodied and slick, finishing a little bit off. Not bad, it’s just a bit thin.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled at the 2014 Untapped festival in Fort Worth. Pours a clear gold with a slight amber hue and tan head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has a lot of bitter pine and resin with backing notes of grass and grain. Flavor has a nice combination of bitter, resin, sweet grains and grass.
