3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is a pine-dominated beer. Pours an amber-orange with white head and good lacing. Smells better than it tastes - aroma of bitter pine, banana and fruit esters, malty biscuit, grassiness. Only some of that comes through in the taste; ends in very very bitter and dry (but somewhat oily) finish. I think I expected more complexity from a DIPA - the smell sets you up to be somewhat disappointed by the taste, which is a bit like run-of-the-mill IPA with the hoppiness turned up to 11.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle. Hazy amber with huge white head - looks great. Muted pine aroma with some sticky caramel and nutty malt. Hops are more or less gone from this - some pine and a bit of citrus in the taste. Mainly biscuit and nutty malt happening. Still a decent bitter bite to this: pine driven. Medium mouthfeel. Bottle is past its best, but to be honest I'm not going to be rushing to try a fresh one.

Dry beer with hints of pepper, exotic fruits, resin and grapefruit full pot. A little sticky.
