1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Aroma: Malty. Caramel and a bit of butterscotch. Fairly fruity in the nose as well; hops are more muted, but have a little citrus character. Appearance: Hazy dark copper pour with a foamy bone head that settles into a skin. Flavor: Pretty much matches the nose; malty and fairly fruity with not much hop character, besides some light bitterness toward the finish. Would make for a nice barley wine. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, very soft carbonation, slightly bitter finish. Overall: Nothing to write home about these days.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
2/28/14. On tap at the brewpub. Amber pour with a small khaki head. Butter all over this one. Ugh. Butter on the aroma, creamy, some hops popping through, but mostly tons of caramel maltiness. Butter on the flavor, hop bitterness but not much character, tons of maltiness and caramel. Bleeegh.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pale color, strong taste, and hoppy. At >10% ABV, substantial without being overpowering. Light on color, heavy on taste!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750 ml bottle from notes. Pours a hazy orange amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor had orange citrus and resiny hops with an abundance of malts. Caramel, bread, toast with mild bitterness to the finish. It wasn’t bad, but I like to get more hops and bitterness from a DIPA.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
No date on the bottle, so I can only assume that this is a brand new, fresh batch and it will be rated as such. Orange pour with a white head. The aroma is very malt with some toffee, caramel and orange citrus notes. The flavor is similar with the addition of some pine. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

(750ml bottle) clear gold, creamy offwhite head. Nose of chlorine, exceptionally malty, pine, odd tartness, not a fan. Taste is malty, bitter, weird, very unbalanced.
