4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
A- Pours a beautiful sunset orange color with a nice, 1.5 finger off white head.
S- Citrus, citrusey fruit, pineapple
T- Large citrusey notes up front leading to a sustained grapefruit bitterness and finishing with lingering toasted malt.
M- Thick and sticky with medium/low carbonation ... I think a little more carbonation would carry the beer better.
D- This is an amazing DIPA. Itís a few months old so iím not sure how different it is fresh but I absolutely love it now. Could drink it all night. Itís worth noting that I liked this one more than I feel the rating reflects however itís weaknesses were weighted more heavily.

I'm liking this better than HopSlam. Has big hops aroma and taste. Has a dry and biting finish. I can dig it.

Pours to a glowing golden body with a white head. A juicy hop and malt excites the nose. Fruity hops. The flavor is malty and bitter. Hops are bitter and oily.

Cloudy yellow orange, white lacing. Resin and candied citrus rind on the nose. Full-bodied, well-balanced palate, with the resin feel definitely coming through in the flavor. Very delicious IPA even for the price.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A: Pours a rustic orange ale with a transient white, short head. This falls to a broken sheet of the same leaving cobweb lacing. Excellent clarity.
S: Oats, onion, sage, citric rinds and musk. A strong, sweet malt backbone tells me that this beer would actually benefit like a mutha from a year in the cella! Take that naysayers.
T: Bitter with a tea like follow through and enough early hops to put the malts in check and helps make this a really hearty beer. Far reaching on the back end is a crystal malt and some really nice spiciness.
M: Medium on heavy body with moderate card come together and give this a silky feel. Dry finish.
O: this is a very atypical take on the style for the East Coast IMO. The beer is spicy, earthy and complex. It reminds me of the difference between a WA Cab Franc and a French Cab Franc, the mineralic and seemingly inorganic profile is acquired, but welcomed in my home. I really wish I had an herbed and roasted chicken and mashed potatoes and some peas with pearl onions to go with this beer.

It poured a cloudy orange color with a small white head. The aroma was of pine, orange, flowers, lemon and some grapefruit. The taste was of resin, pine, grapefruit, some flower, lemon, a little alcohol and some maltiness in the backbone with some sweetness as well. The body was medium and the carbonation was medium low. Very good!
