4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a 22oz bottle into a Dogfish Head Stemmed glass.
The color is a hazy dark orange with two fingers of foamy white head and some nice lacing left on the glass.
The smell is pretty piney and smells a bit like wet hops. Some nice citrus flavor is the background that is quite lemony in flavor and is a bit pithy.
The taste is bitter citrus hop flavor at first. There is a soft embrace of piney flavors with the hops in front and a nice malty flavor that finishes this beer off in the back. There is some interesting hits of sugary flavor that is a bit too sweet but overall the taste is really good.
The feel of this beet is medium bodied with some strong hop flavor that is strong but easy to handle. It goes down well and is just the right mix for a West Coast IPA.

Pours a clear golden/orange with a medium white head. Aroma has notes of melon, kiwi, guava, and grapefruit...a bit boozy. Flavor follows suit and adds a bit of resinous pine. Mouthfeel is full and oily with a dry earthy/piney/resinous finish.

Purchased at Main Street bottle shop very fresh. Great beer on par with stone enjoy by. Smell similar to enjoy by with some dankness, mild pine, and subtle tropical fruits. Taste is delicious with perfect bitterness, some sweetness, and dry clean finish. Like enjoy by but less sweetness and tropical fruit. Great beer and hope can find again.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Not really pure hoppiness. More like 80% hoppiness. Some pine but I feel like this one’s aged in the keg a little. But then again I’ve been spoiled for hops lately. Pours golden with good head and lacing. Some citrus and lots of potpourri. A fair amount of booze. Bitter boozy finish. Tap at Deep Ellum.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Dutch’s. Keg filled Oct. 26. Mildly hazy golden orange color. Great finger of white head. Leaves good webs of lace. Good bigger pine, resin, spicy hop. Bit of bready malt. Bigger bitter taste, moderate sweet, with a mild dry finish. Medium to bigger body, mild slick. Sort of full and fluffy. Lighter, kind of creamy, light crisp carbonation. It’s not without it’s sweet bready malt backbone, but this is a pretty satisfyingly hoppy DIPA overall.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A leathery aroma, little bit of swamp, something sweet--may be impressive to some cause of its unusualness, but is that a good thing, unless its also complex, This declines in the flavor, with alcohol more prominent, with the lether flavor plus some old collards and a hint of caramel. Assaults the tongue and a little flat. bitter, alcohol finish.

Pours a perfect orange/amber with a tall fluffy ivory head that stays forever and leaves great lacing when you sip. Intense hop aroma, so fresh i almost watered it. The taste is very hopped with a great smoothness that is complimented with a perfect bitterness at the end.
