A: Orange/Golden Straw Hue, Passes Through Some Light, Thick White Head, Great Lacing
S: Piney, Tropical Fruits

M: Great Carbonation, Medium Bodied, Oily, Bitter Sweet
Overall, a great blend yet not over powering DIPA, has the piney taste with a nice tropical fruit blend on the back end, solid.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured a deep hazy orangey color ale with a medium white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of citrus and earthy hops with some deep caramelized sweet malt backbone. Taste is also dominated by some citrus and earthy hops with a huge caramelized malt backbone with quite a bit of residual sugar. Body is quite full with good carbonation with no apparent alcohol. Enjoyable but just too sweet for my taste buds.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
In short: A malty-sugary and very hoppy (flora-piney) golden ale. In-your-face IPA. Good.
How: Tap at Downtown, San Juan, PR.
The look: Clear shinning golden-orange body topped by a medium white head leaving lots of lacings on the glass.
In long: The highly aromatic hoppy nose is very floral with piney undertones, this is a bouquet of flowers with some piney and perfumy notes (rose water). Taste offers a solid malt backbone, sugary crackers, mild toastiness and lots of residual sugars (crystal malts) that are quickly washed away by the massive floral-piney hopping. A commanding bitterness. I could have done without the perfume aroma/flavour, it felt a bit soapy to my palate, but overall this was still a pretty good tasty hop-fix. Maybe there is more to rating beers than I think, if you put all my ratings together, then rearrange the letters I bet you can come up with some kind of meaningful spiritual text or something, or at least a good guacamole recipe.

On tap at Blue Dog in Chalfont, PA. I've had and enjoyed Racer 5, but this completely blows it out of the water. The flavor they fit into R5's DIPA counterpart is something to be experienced. A very California style IPA, and that is a compliment in every way.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Sampled in a bomber aged for a couple months. A big time adventure through hops. Really smooth but with a intense hops palate and aftertaste.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark hazy burnt orange hue with creamy diminishing white creamy with minimal head, sharp citrus and pine needle smell, sweet and bread malt, minimal carbonation syrupy as it warmed, seems high in alcohol there is something funky in the back end. Sweetness and alcohol outdoes everything else.

Tap at Thrashzone. Light citrus aroma, bit funky, nice sour cream. Taste is nice herbal, bit cream again, nice. Spritzy. Bit citrus. Pretty good. Decent last beer for my RBJG weekend.

Bottle. Pours cloudy copper with beige head and lacing. Nose of caramel malt, with a little pine and citrus. Definitely a fresh one, mostly malts coming through. I’ve had this on draft years ago and recall it being much better.

Pour on tap, hazy orange-red pour with white head, aroma brought notes of nice pine, grapefruit, orange, biscuit, touch of grass, nice orange marmalade notes, going into caramel, toffee, some earth and spicy tones. Taste is a mix of caramel, toffee, orange marmalade going into bitter grapefruits, some sweet tropical fruit, pine, grass into earth, slight spice with some caramel, toffee, finishing bitter, dry. Nice.
