3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nice representation of the style. Nice pine and citrus aroma. Not overpowering though. Orange brown color with some haze to it. Full crisp palate with some weight. Hops are up front and lingering. Bitterness fills the mouth but is balanced by caramel from the malts. Not overly sweet though. Good stuff.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours copper with small one-finger creamy head. Powerful resiny, piney nose. Some peach, grapefruit and caramel malt offer a rounded and inviting aroma. Fairly sweet introduction combining sweet caramel malt, citrus and tropical fruit. Pine takes over and resinous flavors spike the palate. Nicely balanced and full-flavored. Great beer.

I just pulled this out and it said enjoy by 1/26/13 which is over a year ago, so I’m guessing this isn’t exactly what this should taste like. It’s very good, but I’m going to defer to a fresher bottle and rerate someday. Happy Craft Beer Week everyone!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Keg at South Beach Bar & Grille, South Beach, SD 19/04/14.
Almost clear golden with a moderate off white swirl.
Nose is bitter tropicals, caramel, citric tang, straw, light pine, bitter orange.
Taste comprises caramel malt, grapefruit, orange pith, light booze, spice.
Medium + body, fine carbonationa, semi drying close with semi aggressive hop bitterness.
Middle of the road DIPA, lacks hoppy punch for me.

Pours a nice clear golden color. Citrus, pine, and grass on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium-bodied, and has a little bite on the finish. Overall, pretty decent DIPA.

I’ve had better. Not often though. This might have, if it’s possible, too much bitterness for some people. HAs a decent length, and not a dry finish, not a hint that it’s of 10%ABV. I thought there was a nice note of grapefruit to passionfruit and a lovely sugary sweet aroma. I liked it and I have a whole bottle to myself.
