3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Uber. Pours bright golden with thick creamy head. Aroma is juicy floral hops. Taste is kinda flat piney and floral bitter hops. None of those great citrus notes in the aroma come through in the taste at all - weird! Thin body to stand up to all those hops. It’s been a while but I remember liking their Pilot series DIPA better than this. Something just a bit off here.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Skunky aroma! Deep copper color with a white disappearing head. Initial flavor is a rush of sweetness. It seems to me they used sugar to try to balance the bland hop flavor. It balances but doesn’t taste too great.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Poured clear orange copper color with an average to large frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate complex hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This is a good beer that met my expectations.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Uber, Seattle. Clear, copper-brown. White heavy cream. Mild deep hop, syrupy sip, dense hop, some earthiness. Not my favorite hop palate. Rich, eh.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep orange pour. Pillowy head. Earthy citrus on the nose. Big fruit and red licorice in the flavor - strange (somehow really good) layer before/over the citrus hops. Fades to dry orange pith. Deep, flavorful, strange. I like....?

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber. Pours clear amber. Aroma is caramel and bready malts, light toast, floral notes, and some tropical fruit. Flavor is very well balanced with nice fruity hop character and a solid malt profile that dries things out and adds a touch of caramel sweetness; smooth, subtle hop notes carry through the finish. Medium body.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from the bomber into a snifter. Dark amber with a cream colored head. Aroma is sweet caramel malt with some light breadiness, and mostly resinous hop notes. Flavor is similar with some bready malt character up front, some mild sweetness, and a lot of resinous hops. Medium bodied with a slightly sticky mouthfeel and a long finish. Pretty well balanced and very drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle while delayed at DTW post Moorpylz wedding. Translucent amber pour. Aroma is some pine hops, with some other more fruity flavors mixed in. Taste is more simply pine hops with big malt to balance. Not bad DIPA but wouldn't get again.
