5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
An amazing IPA- hoppy and full bodied without a harsh finish- has a fruity sweet aftertaste that perfectly compliments the bitterness. Tried this on tap at Angler’s Seafood House. One of five kegs in KS. 11/1/2009.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pineapple and fruit on the front palate and super bitter on the finish. Nice progression of the flavors with at least three distinct flavors.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Slight amber tinted gold. Frothy, feel good head. The aroma is like a bouquet of hops. Citrus, bitter sweet, quick flavor. Small bitter finish. 110% enjoyable. A light IIPA? That’s up to you to decide.

Pineapple!! Pineapple turns in to pine finishes with bitterness. Cloudy and poor head. Fantastic palate, absolutely perfect mouth feel. Fruit salad tastes in the middle. The malt is fantastic too. One of the better DIPAs at the Bistro DIPA fest.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
First pour from a growler filled today @ Charleston Beer Exchange, into a chilled Duvel tulip. Usual bright orange color typical of the style, with a short but dense head. Nose is just stuffed with fresh citrus, grapefruit of course but maybe some mandarin orange in there? Smooth almost creamy mouthfeel, tons of hop bitterness in the back. Lots of hops here, but very smooth drinking, not a sharp attack on the tongue or a resiny/oily feel at all. Great brew really, and at 8.7% this one drinks dangerously well. Skoal!

On tap @ Freshcraft on Halloween night. Clear darkish orange with a small white laceful head. Very citrusy floral aroma, delightfully tropical hoppy, bitter and resinous, yet sweet as well. Flavor was bright and big and citrusy and tropical, sweet with a grassy floral hop bite. Bitter but complex and refined. Some grapefruit, some resin, with a hefty balancing dose of caramel sweetness. Absolutely a joy to drink.

On tap at Toronado, SF. Gorgeous pour! Thick, creamy head. Deep golden body. Highly fragrent hoppy nose. Full bodied, smooth and velvety with a bit of a bite in the end. Very bitter, but not overpowering. Well balanced. Eminently drimkav

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at Brouwer’s for Hopfest, pours copper brown with a creamy all-white head. Aroma of tropical fruits - pineapple, mango, and prominent resinous hops. Flavour of lots of resinous hops, tropical fruits, burnt caramel, toasted nuts. Full-bodied, roasty and buttery. Really nice.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
[Draft @ CAH] Amber color with a small, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of woody hops, some pine, citrus fruits, some floral, orange, and toasted malt. Taste of raw, bitter hops, woody, slightly tannic, toast, light caramel, citrus, and grapefruit, with a bit of alcohol at the end.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Blind Tiger. Very hazy deep amber-orange beer. Aroma is loaded with orange peel and lots of tropical fruit. Pink grapefruit and lots of other fruity goodness. Low resinousness just a soft sticky hoppiness over a lightly sweet pale base malt. Flavour is very orangey/fruity. Bright tangerine and citrus. Great balance, soft fruitiness and a fairly low bitterness. This is like an ode to the hop... sticky hop oils just coat the nose and the palate with sweet hoppy goodness. Awesome stuff.
