3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From bomber to tulip and paired with Indian food. Aroma is moderate high spiciness, moderate stone fruit and herbs. Faint rose petal. Pours a murky copper-orange with white head that leaves only a collar around the rim. Taste has citrus and pine than the aroma. Moderate-high bitterness. Moderate alcohol on both the aroma and warming effects in the mouthfeel. Becomes a little sherry-like as it warmed. Late in the glass, the alcohol becomes very pronounced and the beer starts to fall apart a little.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aromas of peach juice, tons of orange zest, grapefrui peel, tangerine, mango, floral hops, some dankness, very slight buttery and piney notes. Appears a bright peach color with a very thin white foam. Taste is surprisingly dank, much more than in the aroma. Big dankness, very impressive hop profile with pines, herbs, resin, hop oils, leafy hops, and also big bright orange, peach, mango, tangerine, grapefruit and stone fruit. Finishes very dry with a lot of bitterness. Overall, this is a pretty impressive IIPA. I’m really liking the hop profile on it. Reminds me of my current homebrew. A rating.

Citrus, green tea, earthiness. Cloudy copper with dense white head. Alcohol and lots of resin. Not much hop flavor otherwise. Malt balanced well with hop but beer is a bit too dense.

On tap at Hay Merchant, Houston. Very enjoyable beer. Nice head and great lacing, the color is dark orange. Aroma is typical DIPA stuff, big citrus, tropical fruits, etc. Taste is the same. Great DIPA, but it can’t touch Apex.
