Not bad. Dark amber color. Booze on the aroma. Nice balance in the taste, very sweet fruit, nice hops bitterness that is definitely not overwhelming the sweetness. Not my first choice in a brew, but a solid one nonetheless....and a bit scary that it’s from Blue Moon.

Aroma of soft pine and malts. A clear mahogany pour with a white short lived head and minimal lacing. The taste is bitter - pine - not sure I tasted junipers ( ??) a touch of sweetness. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, a nice first beer of the evening.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Medium sized white head with fair retention and plenty of lace.Amber/copper hued brew. Nose of not much, some kinda fruity notes. Body is lightly medium with a soft carbonation, lil oily. Pine? Not really. Weird berry notes and some caramel malts, lightly sweet as is the lame ass finish. No bite, no balls. DIPA? I think not, not even close. Cutesy brew. Bomber from statelineliquors. Knew i shouldnt of wasted the bucks.

copper to orange pour with a small lacy off white head, not hop aroma more malts . The juniper does not jump out at you , hard to tell where hops end an d juniper begins . As it warms the Malt taste shows through the hops. Would have no problem drinking this agn.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
651 ml. twist cap bottle. Pours a medium, well retained ivory head, with extensive lacing, over an initially clear (see below) clear dark amber (SRM 15) body.....nose is heavy pine, resin from the hops, cereal, light roast with toast, biscuit from the malts, minimal esters....taste is slightly sweet, with hints of citrus (lemon), mild malts with vague hints of toast, finishing with a pine dominated bitterness, minimal juniper.....mouth feel, medium body, slightly sticky, minimal alcohol warmth, acid finish. This is a weak attempt at a I/DIPA. The alcohol, complexity in both aroma and flavor are all low to the style. The juniper is quite hidden, and the whole recipe needs reworking. However on the second pour a tremendous load of floaters came sloshing out. Perhaps the beer was mis-handeled, but I got it at Applejacks. BJCP 6/1/10/4/5
