4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Nice rich aroma that smells like an American Strong. Murky dark orange body with a thin off white head. Sweet but not cloyingly so. Quite frankly wonderful. Warming.

This one has a bite to it, but in a good way. You know you’re drinking a DIPA. Lots of pine and grass on the nose, follows onto the palate. A bit of resin and floral notes follow. Pretty complex, and worth trying if in Madison.

One of the best ipas I’ve ever had. And that’s saying a lot from an Oregonian. Will crave this back home.

12oz bottle. Kinda hoppy. Kinda sweet. Smelled a bit like rice Krispy treats strangely enough.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a nice looking ruby dark orange amber. Medium plus creamy off-white head, mostly partially with good lace. Big aroma. Heavy hoppy and malty, sweet. Fruity, pine, citrus, tropical, caramel. Flavor follows. Some nice dank fruitiness. A hint of spiciness. Bigger medium to full body. Pleasant bitterness, smoothed out with caramely sweetness. Nicely balanced. Doesn’t get too big for its own good. Excellent drinkability, especially for the style. Would recommend.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
sweet malt, hoppy, a little roasty, caramel aroma.
Taste start with citrus hops, goes to a sweet bitterness, and ends with a slight dry bitter finish. Smooth transitions throughout.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy red-orange. Bright floral Centennial hops on the nose. Taste - hop-forward citrus floral and resinous flavors collide with a sticky caramel malt backbone. A very nice IIPA.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Ale Asylum. Amber hued. This is a pretty beer. If smells like tropical and sweet. This is a rich and full aroma. This is a big and complex beer, the flavor is deep with lots of tropical fruit, mangoes, ruby grapefruit, resin, and candied fruit. Medium-ish body, fairly bitter well balanced.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear amber with a thin cap of off white head. Some lacing present. Aroma is slightly bitter with some citrus and resinous hops. A ton of caramel, malt, bread and orange. Mouth is very hoppy. A lot of citrus and resin again, with a strong caramel presence. A slight malt backbone evens this beer out.
