4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma good, appearance golden with pretty bubbles in the pint. Just the right amout of foam that lasted through conversation. Mild hoppiness. Bartender said it was one of those she could drink six of then finally realize how drunk she was. I agree thanks to the subtle but effective 8.6. Rad beer!

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap. Slightly hazy amber pour with a nice lasting off white head. Really nice tropical fruit, peach, pine, and caramel aroma. Taste is resin, pine, and grapefruit. Bitterness dominates and makes it a little one note. Lasting pine aftertaste. Medium body.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle into snifter, best before 10/29/2014. Pours lightly hazy deep orange/amber color with a 1-2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, apricot, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, pine, caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with juicy citrus/tropical hop notes with moderate malt sweetness; and good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, apricot, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, floral, grass, caramel, biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of resinous pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, apricot, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, caramel, biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity and balance of bright citrus/tropical hops and moderate malt sweetness; with a nice crisp malt/bitterness balance and minimal cloying bitterness after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and moderately sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice DIPA style. All around good complexity and balance of bright citrus/tropical hops and moderate malt sweetness; and very smooth and crisp to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

Awesome DIPA. Strong caramel malt backbone on aroma and flovor. But also, assertive hoopiness, citrus, grapefruit, flowers. The finish was lingering sweetness, pine, citrus. Medium/thick in body. Nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Decent, but lacking the overpowering hops and bitterness of a typical double IPA, in my opinion. Drinks more like an IPA. However, thats not a bad thing and the beer is still very good.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Muted hop aroma, with some alcohol. Dark, clear, amber color. Too much like many other DIPAs. Routine head.
