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.

12oz bottle from Andersons on Talmadge: copper-brown pour with thin off-white and a ring of bubbles. aroma of booze, burnt sugar, citrus. tastes are sweet sticky caramel malt, burnt vibe, herbal, honey, bread. strangely watery and heavy palate. not as awful as it sounds, but a sweet rough sipper at best.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pour on tap at Crunchy’s, hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, oxidized sugars, some orange, hints of earth, spice, grass, slight pine. Taste was a mix of orange, pine, grass into caramel, finishing slightly sweet, slightly boozy.

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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle. Deep golden with small head. Quite sweet with a good amount of booziness and substantial hops. I can’t say I’d recommend this much.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle shared by DrSilverworm. Pours a hazy orange amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet caramel malts, ample fruity character, quite a bit of oxidation that had me trying to determine the age of the bottle, stale toasted bread, the bitterness was very mild. I like my DIPAs to have a much more assertive hop profile.
