3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy dark amber color with a moderate white head. Nose is hoppy with a lot of pine in there. Taste is relatively well balanced without a lot of bitterness. Not bad.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Respectable double IPA. Enjoyed in a merlot glass, which I think enhanced aroma and flavor. Hoppy, of course, and bordering on barley wine, but malts and caramel underneath. A bit high priced at $2.99 per bottle, in my opinion, when I can get similar quality for a bit less. Was good to try though.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A nice, doughy/fruity, hoppy AIPA aroma with some boozy notes. Foggy, apricot brew with a fluffy, insulation batting head. Standard US longneck, OK-to-bad label (slick plastic.) A boozy barleywine game going on in the flavor profile - staunch malting, sturdy hops, tends to the sweeter side with hops more towards the end. Buttery tones. Medium heavy body. Lasting citrus pith finish with a lot of bittereness on the sides of the tongue, a cakey (vanilla, sweet, pastry) final bow. ABC, Bull Run.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Well...I pretty much knew it when I bought it (based on label and name alone that this wasnít going to be any good). But hey I canít knock it until I have tried it. Pours a hazy deep orange with a bubbly off white head that left some sticky lacing. Aroma of toffee, caramel, tea, cardboard, yeast and hints of citrus hop notes. Flavor was malty sweet, tea, caramel, coardboard, aggressive hop bitterness, grapefruit juice...lingering bitterness that just doesnít sit well on the tongue.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
355 ml bottle. (State Line Liquors) Elkton, MD.
Hazy amber colour with a small white head.
Sugary and toffee sweet malty aroma with some notes of alcohol and hops.
The flavour is very sweet sugary malty with some resiny hops and moderate bitterness. Thinnish. Not very tasty DIPA.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours hazy amber with thick, frothy off-white head; decent retention and lacing. Aroma is caramel and cookie malts, citrus and floral hops, apples, light pear, and light black pepper. Flavor is pine hops forward (medium bitterness) with supporting light fruit esters, bready malts, and light spice; dry finish with some lingering hops; medium body and low carbonation.

2.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 20/20
I dont see how this is a DIPA. Cant even call It close to a IPA. It has a nice color. Lows carbonation and lots of foam when poured stumps me. But whose ass do I have to kick to make this better. Took two sips and poured it down the sink.

Amber orange tint, little foam. Aroma of grass and fruit. Medium-light bodied. Tastes like pine, fruit, hops, malts and warm booze. An ok dipa.
