3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Location: Draft at Jake Melnick’s, 5/27/14
Aroma: The aroma is pine and citrus hops, resin, and some caramel
Appearance: It pours a clear orange-amber color with a mid-sized off-white head
Flavor: The flavor is fairly bitter with a some lighter sweetness for a little balance
Palate: The body is medium, it has a soft-to-average carbonation, and a long, dry finish
I enjoyed this beer. Nice example of the style, maybe not a top-of-style example, but a nice one for sure.

Bottle shared by sloth. Aroma of strong citrus, grapefruit rinds, faint pine. Flavor followed, oranges too, earthy biscuits, faint caramel. Mouthfeel was only moderate for the style which made this pretty drinkable with moderate carbonation. A pretty solid dIPA. Thanks, Bert!

So very good. Bottle from the convenience store. Rich copper, aromas of orange and bread, like a fruit cake. The taste is outstanding, like a caramel, orange, bread pudding combination that works so well. Such a good balance of bready smooth malts and that orange peel bitterness. Some alcohol is present in the finish, would not have guessed 9% though. This is just a terrific beer.

I have to say I wasn’t expecting this to be as good as it was. This DIPA is on par with the big boys.Outstanding sweet floral nose and strong hoppy taste. Very nice!

Bottle. Golden pour with a lot of white foamy head. Smells of hops and slight malt sweetness. Tastes bitter on the finish but not very bitter. Good ipa

What this beer has in standard citrus IPA bombardment, it lacks in subtly. Grapefruit and...?

Pours a golden color with a good head and nice lacing on the glass.
The aroma is grassy & citrusy, pungent & restrained on booziness. It’s not especially complex, although it presents it’s self very nicely as a hop forward, fragrant, and enjoyable beer.
The flavor has a nice but never over the top bitter bite. The beer is hop forward, lightly sweet, citrusy and just a touch boozy.
