4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Keg at The Pony Bar, NYC. Pours clear gold with a fine, white head. Heavy hop aroma, deep pine, light caramel, ripe grapefruit. Medium to big sweet flavor, soft toasty malts and toasty sugars, pine and thick citrus bitterness. Full bodied with average carbonation. Very subtle warmth in the finish, sticky pine and resins, sweet toast. Very juicy with slight bubblegum notes. Pretty tasty DIPA.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap somewhere in San Diego...backlogged rating in my phone. Deep golden color with medium carbonation. Aroma is hardcore orange citrus. Flavor is overwhelming lemon and orange citrus with a heavy malt base...I like my DIPA’s like this. Malty backbone is a bit too sweet though...lower double IPA bitterness than expected. OK I guess.

Growler served in a tulip. Dense dark orange with a short off-white head. Good retention and watery lacing. Subtle orange and lemon citrus, floral hops, and heavy malt undertones on the nose. Similar flavors. Full body, creamy texture, decent carbonation, and a long bitter sweet finish. Extreme IPA...no. Extremely balanced for a big IPA, yes. Well done.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Max’s, Baltimore. Huge gleaming bright orange pour with a thick, creamy two-finger head. Sumptuously sweet tropical fruits in the nose along with substantial malt backing. Mouthfeel is full and not too slick despite the overall trend away from dry and bitter towards sweeter flavors. In some ways it’s almost a malt forward DIPA like Denogginizer, though there’s just so much fruit going on it’s hard to avoid the hoppy madness. Hints of booze and bitter hops in the finish. Pretty good.
