3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Pours a slightly hazy orangey-amber with a thin white head, good lacing. Nose is pineapple, malts and some alcohol. Mouth is medium bodied, citrus (grapefruit) hoppiness and bittersweet up front, which rides a malty backbone through to a looonggg bitter finish. Not too complex, but a decent DIPA all the same.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz. bottle from Bruisiní Ales, Asheville, NC (enjoy by August 9, 2013). Pours dark orange with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of clean pine, grapefruit rind, and pineapple. Great bitter hop flavor of grapefruit, grass, mango, pine needles, and pineapple. Just the right amount of malt to not so much balance but rather to tone down the hop assertiveness. Outstanding, of course. (Replaces an earlier review from Loganís pre-GABF party, 2009, Denver, CO. Same score from the earlier review).

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured a deep lemon yellow with an amber tint and a slight haze. A big head of soft creamy foam that dwindled like it had all day to a thick cap and collar. Sticky, beautiful lacing. Excellent retention. Looks so good. Nose is not as strong as you would expect to look at this beer but it smells great. Citrus, lemon, tangerine, lime, you can smell the hop resin, tropical, grassy and some good strong pale malt with a lot of caramel and sugar. Taste is awesome. Itís dry, crisp, refreshing, malt is deep and rich a little sugary, the hops are resiny and bitter with all the fruits washing over the palate. There was no alcohol on the nose but it is on the palate and it mingles well. Gentle carbonation and a good mouthfeel. This is a fantastic DIPA that comes right up to Stone for bitterness but stops before it becomes arrogant. Smooth and very well done.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma: biscuity malt, sweet and, er, malty, it smells warm both kiterally and figuratively. Juicy fruit chewing gum thinks itís still 1979 and struts up with freckles and flared denims. Flavour is fantastic. Citrus: the ubiquitous grapefruit, now orange peel, now candied lemon. Finish is citrus peel with a high keening pine resin note.
