3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy straw golden color with 1 finger head that lingers leaving heavy lacing. Somewhat sweet with moderate bitterness. Toasted malt, resinous hops, hint of caramel. Full body, softer, creamy carbonation which is a little different for the IPA body. Pretty well balanced. Long, smooth but bitter finish. This is a good imperial IPA. Unique

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is pine, hops and a hint of nail polish. The flavor is citrus, grapefruit, complex fruit, malts, tropical fruit and a mix of tart and bitter in the finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2016 Bottled 12/17/15. Pours deep hazy orange, off white head. Aroma is tough to describe. Lemon, pine, some grapefruit, almost like a touch of bubblegum, a sweet almost toffee/sugar malt, slight dankness. Pretty nice. Flavor is burnt sugar, some residual sugar sweetness, again like this weird bubblegum note I get. Grapefruit, lemon, really like sugary, it?s sweet. Someild hop bitterness in the finish. Yea, residual sugar moreso in the finish, some booziness too. It?s good. Doesn?t blow my mind but it?s good.

Draft to taster at the Kalamazoo brewpub. Looks solid; a completely transparent deeper good with white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes like a bittersweet malt bomb with notes of floral and citrus hops. Mouthfeel is medium full-bodied and slightly hot. Solid, but unbalanced.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUL 24, 2015 12 oz. bottle, sent from wilco (thanks Mike), pours a hazy golden with a large white head. Nose brings out hop resins, pine and a light caramely bready malt. Flavour is more or less the same, with resinous and piney hops, hop oils and lightly caramelized bready malt. Well-balanced and chewy. A really nice, drinkable IIPA.

Bottle at a bar. This one came out of nowhere! Poured a golden slight cloudy colour with a white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, malts, citrus, slight end of resins, pines hops bitterness. Pretty enjoyable now in the sun

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at a crappy bar. Poured into a tall chalice into a bright golden color. Very clear and transparent. A sticky spotty lacing with a white smooth head. A slightly off aroma of sticky dank citrus hops. A thick coating sip of strong citrus hop flavors. Actually a the biggest flavor is a thick sticky strong honey. Not very bitter honestly. Just a potent citrus and moderate strong alcohol. Big honey overall citrus feel. Not horrible.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap. A clear golden pour. Aromas of citrus and flowery hops, orange, sweet malts, a touch of b.o. Sweet taste initially, but a medium to strong bitterness kicks in that lasts. Overly sweet, in my opinion. A bit syrupy/sticky. Medium+ bodied.

355 mL bottle. Beautiful looking beer. Clear golden with a big, fluffy, sticky white head. Fruity hops in the nose. A little on the mild side. The flavour is lovely, and more balanced than many others. Sweet citrus, resin and a little pine, with some honey from the malts. Bitterness is a touch light, and the alcohol is well hidden. A very drinkable IIPA.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
I really wish there was a date on the bottle. Is this an 8 year old DIPA or a shitty DIPA or both? Buttery. Hoppy aroma but not in taste. Meh. Not retired. Not nutty. I’m confused.
