3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Looks like this was recently brought back. On tap over the weekend at the brewery.
Several sample glasses.
The appearance was a hazy burnt orange color with a thick one finger foamy white head that dissipated within less than a minute. Light lacing speckled the sides of the glass.
The smell had a fairly good bitter citrus leading to a dry caramel malty aroma.
The taste took those flavors to combine and make bittersweet. There’s a fairly long bittersweet citrus aftertaste leading to a dry finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was good for the style and for me.
Overall, I say this was a pretty good DIPA that I would have again.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
First off this thoroughly exceeded my expectations. The nose is bright and rich, full of citrus, tropical fruit, pine, and caramel. An intense flavor of citrus, pine, and caramel really come together seamlessly. The balance of sweetness and hopiness is really spot on to my liking. Delicious.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
22oz bottle $9. Wow, I split this with two friends and we were unanimous that this sucked. It looked good, orange, decent head and lace. It smelled subpar for something that is supposed to be hoppy. The flavor was very alcoholic and unenjoyable, no hops. Maybe this doesn’t travel well but for $9 I expect a lot more.
