3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at EC. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy complex citrus hop, fruit and alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy smooth bittersweet citrus flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a solid beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft to snifter at Eccentric Cafe. Looks good; a transparent cop perish orange with off-white head that dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes solid; floral and grapefruit hops with a sweet, malty backbone. Good on the palate with a notable but not unpleasant boozy presence. Good beer.

Pint at the Eccentric Cafe on 3/30/13. Clear gold pour with a thick beige head. Aroma of malt, citrus, pine and grassy hops. Malty flavor at the start, then bright orange accents take over before a spicy hop finish. Nicely done.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the Eccentric Café, Kalamazoo. This version listed at 10.3% abv. Slightly hazy deep copper red-orange body, thin ring of off-white carbonation. Sweet nose, also bitter/rindy, with grapefruit and berries. Bitter hops and alcohol are the first impressions on the palate, with big, juicy citrus, primarily grapefruit, and tropical fruits coming on mid-palate and lingering into the finish. A little thin up front, but tasty.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark red/amber in color with a light brown head, this delicious double IPA has a sticky-sweet aroma of caramel and tropical hops. The flavor is like candy... very tropical and with lots of grapefruit. It has an amazing hop bouquet. Simply gorgeous. What a wonderful hop experience... without too much bitterness. Beautiful. Perfect.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
At the Eccentric Cafe. Remind me of Great Lakes Alchemy Hour. Dark amber color. Big on pine sap and grapefruit citrus along with nice toasted notes. Sweet but waaay bitter, a touch tart. Medium bodied, softer, but a hugely long bitter finish. Damn good all around.
