4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
From a 650ml bottle on 9/10/2014. Pours an opaque dark golden with a smallish head. Has a pleasant if not spectacular fruity hop aroma with some light caramel notes. The flavour gives you quite a bit of sweet citrus and stone fruit (mandarin, apricot) and a touch of honey, set off against a mild caramel malt background. There’s a decent but not over the top bitterness at the end with some resin lingering quite prominently at the back. The texture is syrupy and the carbonation is moderate. Very easy to drink for the size. This is a very solid and enjoyable DIPA but just lacks the character and focus of the very best brews in this style.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft pour. Very bottom of the keg so this could change next time. Pours thick with a solid caramel color. This beer is almost all caramel flavors with a bitter hop finish. Pretty heavy beer. Overall, decent beer, and good flavor to it.

Draught at Chuck’s Hop Shop, 85th st, Seattle
Hazy amber color. The caramel dominates, yet it’s lean, and then the powerful and resiny hopping happens; long final.
