4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A shade darker than the standard orange amber color of DIPA, with a typical two finger thick, and durable, head. The smell was that of tropical fruit (mango and melon) and some pine. The taste was usual for the style in terms of complexity. There were notes of oak and juniper up front, with some citrus fruits and candy sugar following. There was a sting of carbonation in the finish with a touch of Brett like funk. It was as if this DIPA has been mated with a Saison. The body was dense and sticky, with some tongue coating action. I liked this for a different take on the style.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Marham LCBO A: citrusy, grapefruit, biscuity, light mango app: clear light copper with thick white head and good lacing. T/p: med body with moderate long bitter finish. O: I couldn’t find a bottling date on the label and sadly looks like I might have it an old bottle. Aromatics are on the low side. hopefully I will be able to find a fresher version and I will gladly update my rating after.

2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear orange color with thin foam layer. Sweet hoppy smell. The taste is oily thick, sweet and hoppy bitter. Fruity dry and a little tart aftertaste. Not bad, not too good either.

Pours a cloudy dark orange. Big aromas: lemon, pine, grapefruit, candied sugar. Big hoppy flavors, bready malts, lots of citrus. Very much in the West coast style in term of bitterness. Odd sweet aftertaste. Not my favorite IPA, but it’s still good.

Good hoppy scent, decent golden color. This might be a slightly old bottle as it tasted a bit on the funky side for some reason

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz single bottle from Molly’s Spirits. Light amber and clear appearance with a sticky white head. Aroma of pine, resinous hops, light herbs, grass, earth and biscuit malts. Similar flavor, adding light citrus and tropical fruits and a bit of spicy hops. Mild malt sweetness and a lingering medium to heavy hop bitterness. Pretty full body with a syrupy mouth feel and a resinous bitter finish. Not very fun and kind of hard to drink.
