3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Single bottle from W&M Mansfield. Pours out a deep golden amber with a frothy off-white head. Big oily pine aromas. Body is heavy with layers of strong bitter grapefruit, burnt rubber and pine. Thick sweetness in the middle followed by huge bitter pith finish. Somewhat muddled and unrefined compared to other DIPAs though.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from SL. Hazy golden pour with thin head. Aroma of tropical fruit and booze. The alcohol burn is there. Loads of tropical fruits, some bready malts and a boozy burn with a spicy hop finish. This is a big beer with a big sweetness as well. It almost tasted not quite fresh and makes me wish I could get this on tap. Still, pretty good.

Super pithy and bitter, honeyed malt, well balanced. Slight wintergreen and menthol notes. Long dry pithy finish. Fab DIPA.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark amber into a taster showing half a finger of clean white foam.
The nose shows subtle notes of cannabis.
The palate is full bodied and well carbonated with biscuit-like sweet malts, and a slightly less hop emphasis.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours clear almost copper. Aroma is very hoppy, fresh pine. Taste is extremly hoppy, pine dominating, but it has balance with a good amount of malt. Very nice.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Glowing orange, clear. Didn’t love the smell - malty dishwater. Chemical, boozy, marshmallow - vanilla notes (couldn’t put my finger on it, something like Peeps or Circus Peanuts ). Oily mouthfeel, staunchly bitter finish. A bit of a chore to drink, just too edgy. On tap, Brass Tap Midtown Tallahassee.

Hazy golden-orange color with nice beige head. Aroma is citrus, grapefruit, a bit boozy. Taste is sweet, spicy, with a booze burn, very sweet, and a boozy finish with lots of warming bitterness. Not bad!

12 oz. bottle from The Beer Store. Pours a deep copper color with a 2 finger off white head with lace. Lots of citrus and pine on the nose. Flavor is semi sweet up front. More malt than the aroma would suggest. Hops take over on the back end. Big hop finish. Medium bodied.
