Tap at Chimera brewing, Fort Worth. Pours light yellow, small white head. Aroma is citrus, orange, pine, light kind of soapy shampoo thing going on, tropical fruits. Solid. Flavor is sweet candied orange, slight tropical fruits, actually really nice. Better than the soapy Aroma.

Nice tasty Imperial 2xIPA with a good hop aroma and flavor. This was a great beer I liked the malt backing and big hops finish on this beer.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Roasty, smoke mixture of citrus flavors forward that lingers on the soft palate cascading down the palatine pillers with a slightly bitter finish. Very drinkable. Excellent I IPA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Pine Box. West coast hops dominate aroma - earthy bitterness dominates the palate. A little unbalanced, but big on flavour (and booze).

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at Über Tavern. Clear copper color with a medium off-white head that recedes gradually. Strings of lacing on the glass. The aroma is citrusy with hops and malt notes. Full-bodied with a moderately bitter hops and grapefruit character, with some grainy malt in the background. The finish briefly hoppy then ends sweet with honey and malt. Decent overall.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Backwoods, Carson, 24/05/13.
Clear dark amber with a thin beige head.
Nose carries hop notes, caramel, sugars, orange, many of the right notes but a little on the thin side for a 10% DIPA.
Taste comprises caramel malts, sugars, hops, orange pith, bitter grapefruit.
Full bodied, fine carbonation, hop bitterness in the finish.
Drinkable DIPA but a little dumbed down, no real depth or punch to this one, alchocol was well hidden if indeed it was 10.1% as per the beer list! As I found with most of the Backwoods beers, it was drinkable but some way short of being top draw, glorified good level home brewing to be blunt!
