3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma was nice with citrus and piney notes. The color poured a nice golden color with a nice thick off white head that held throughout and left some nice lacing. Taste was medium bodied, almost sticky and tasted slightly of hop cotton candy. Citrus and pine notes on the palate with a nice caramel sweetness to balance. Finish is dry and nice hop bitterness. Overall a very solid DIPA. Never seen it my area before but will buy again

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled 650ml. -from Vrutak Zagreb. Cloudy Orange/golden coloured, minimal off-white head, grapefruity hoppy nose with notes of caramel. Swet malty, caramel, candy sugar and light grapefruity hoppy with notes of wood and alcohol. Dry bitter sweet finish. Not more than 6 weeks before BBE date, so I need to try it fresh because itís obvious that real hop character fade away.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amber colored, a bit hazy, creamy medium off white head. Aroma is of sweet caramel malt with floral, tropical fruit hop notes. Taste is very sweet pale and caramel malt, biscuit, medium floral and tropical fruity to grapefruit hops aroma and medium bitterness. Dry finish and sweet aftertaste. Medium to full bodied, resiny, medium carbonation. Too sweet and malty for the hops to get the attention they deserve.

Bottle, shared at poker night. Hazy medium orange with a creamy off white head. Big resinous hoppy aroma and flavour, oily texture, long bitterness. Malts give it a bit of sweetness. A solid DIPA.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. A frothy monster. Exploded from the cap, hinting at some imperfection. Indeed, at first quaff I get a sense of funk I donít want in this style. Itís a meaty beast to be sure .. rich with caramel malt and beefy hop backdrop. But it tastes homemade. (#5935, 2/27/2015)

Bomber shared by Mike G over some basketball. Solid drink with aggressive west coast hops. You donít get many ipaís like this anymore so it is nice to revisit the old school way to peel enamel off your teeth.

pretty solid, moderate sweetness, moderate citrus hoppyness, pretty old school, a little boring and overplayed but it i what it is

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clear orange amber with a very thick and rather persistent pale buff head. Boldly hoppy aroma has a nice fruity undertone, mainly Mandarin orange plus a bit of apple. Hoppy flavor is quite fruity - orange, apple, pear, even a bit of banana. Hop component is equally woody and resiny, barely bitter; a sweet hint peeps through, as does a bit of malt. Texture is smooth and fairly firm, while tingle is not strong but persistent. Go on a rampage!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Clear copper color and a large finger of creamy beige head. Lots of sticking lacing throughout the glass. Nose is ripe with citrus and tropical fruit, some pine. More pine comes through in the taste, lightly floral, and more of the citrus/tropical fruit. Good emphasis on and use of the hop flavors. Nicely done.
