3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice transparent copper pour w/ a big tan head that leaves a great ring of la of lacing. The aroma is a bountiful amount of hops. The taste is very well balanced & rather smooth for an IPA at 10%. The citrus & grapefruit hops make this potent beer refreshing! A very solid beer overall!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Gianomme, 6/21/13
Aroma: The nose has plenty of hops, some grapefruit, floral hops, resin, and a little spice
Appearance: Pours a clear reddish-orange color with a creamy foam of off-white head and heavy lace
Flavor: The flavor is pretty big on the sweetness and it has some fairly strong hop flavor as well
Palate: The body of this one is pretty full, it has a sticky feel, a hint of heat, and a bit of a dry finish
Iím not sure how this one escaped rating until now, but once I noticed it had, I knew it needed to be ticked. Anyway, this is some good stuff. As Iím finished Season 3 of Thrones, this quote from Tyrion Lannister seemed quite apropos: "Itís not easy being drunk all the time, everyone would do it if it were easy."

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours golden amber with a medium head. Aroma is citrus, tropical fruits, and light malts. Taste is a little more "piney" than the aroma, but topical fruits are blended in well. A sweetness runs throughout the palate and finish is thick (if that makes any sense) and bitter - the bitterness is a little clingy like a possesive girl. Holds on tight.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, a very good DIPA. Clean, not overly bitter, with enough alcohol to combat the sweetness.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a slightly hazed golden orange with a thinner off-white head that, when swirled vigorously, produces about a finger or so of creamy head and leaves some tiny spotted lacing. Nose involves quite a bit of citrus and tropical fruit, earth, herbal, pine, honey, biscuits. Pretty sweet, but also quite bitter. Medium bodied, fair action, bright, with a lengthy bitter finish. Pretty tasty, lots of good things here. Wish I would have grabbed one back a few months ago when it was very fresh, but itís still drinking very well right now.

My rate is definitely skewed on this as it was a nitro pour so it added a lightness and fuller mouth-feel. That being said it was god damn creamy fabulousness. Hoppy and dry cascading bubbles let the flavor resonate perfectly. MMMMMMMMM.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear, light amber/honey color. Dense head, good lacing. Malty pine, grapefruit aroma. Up front grapefruit flavor with pine and medium or more mouthfeel. Pretty good - would get again.

Strong entry into the DIPA field. Amarillo hops are the best around and this one is a good way to show them off.
