3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Sidney OH Marathon station pour hazy copper with moderate ecru head and lots of suspended floaters. Nose lightly dank, some vegetal, sweet malt. Taste moderate bitter bite up front, then apple, fruit hop, dank, and moderate sweet malt. Light bitter finish. Being an Ohio State fan, I am duty bound to not rate this too high.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours orangish red with off white head and light lacing. Aroma of caramel candy apple with extreme bitter citrus & grass. Taste is the same with malty backbone that has a bite. Need alittle better balance, but stil drinkable/enjoyable. Go Bucks!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle @ Chief Market / Lima OH --- Hazy amber brown color, beige head cover, lace curtain. Strong caramel malt that adds carbonation on the swallow, followed by a jolt of solid citrus hops. In all of this the malt never gets lost, growing into a long finish. Big, but a very satisfying brew.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a murky brown. Small creamy tan head. Sweet aroma. Flavor is of bread, toast, and nuts. Definitely taste the alcohol. Bigger palate. Hops are there, but really have mellowed. Wonder if this bottle is pretty old. If so its held out ok, but to me the flavor is much more like a strong ale then a DIPA

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy orange with a medium head and aromas of citrusy soap. Flavor is a booze bomb with lots of sugars and a stinging hops presence. Lots of resin and floral hops play nice with the heavy ABV and make this seem like one of those IIPA/Barley Wine hybrids.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aromas of sweet citrusy hops. Quite sweet. A bit of dough.
Medium, off-white head and a copper/amber color.
Pretty sweet palate, medium to heavy bitterness.
Medium body, creamy and a bit oily texture; average carbonation; a long sweet, bitter and carbonated finish.
Overall a pretty good beer.

2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Simcoe aroma. Kind of reminds me of the Victory IPA. Burnt orange color with a small white head. Not too crazy about the taste. Very bitter. Off balance. Might be a good beer to get drunk quick.
