2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
(750ml bottle, courtesy of Dixonian) Pours a hazy orange body with a spare white head. Aroma of orange, alcohol, unfermented sugars, and yeast. Flavor of alcohol, syrupy, herbs, honey, and grass. Quite messy.

4.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Not sure what these d-bags who have also rated this are talking about. This is a fantastic brew. If you donít categorize it into anything and just take if for what it is it is a fabulous experiment. If you made beer on a commercial scale youíd understand and this for being 11% is sex in a can. Big orange, more malty but incredibly, absolutely incredibly smooth for 11%. So suck my balls all ye who think itís only an 81. Suck em.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle courtsey of dougefreezy, thanks bro! Pours a hazy dark orange. An agressive pour yielded quite a decent sized head. Aromas of toffee, spices, clove and some Kentucky Fried Chicken biscuits in there as well. Taste is sweet, with some esters, some funky spice that doesnít belong there along with some bitterness. Certainly not a hop bomb. This beer is very sweet. Something is a little off with this beer... Canít quite pit my finger on it... Maybe because itís so cloying... Maybe itís the clove flavors, maybe itís just me. Honestly, I was expecting more from this beer. This is more like $30K+OT.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml bottle poured into glass. Split with my brother for the US Open. I was hoping this batch would be much better then batch 3 and 4, which were good but had some flaws. This was pretty malty all around. Perhaps just too sweet for my liking. Hops are great but the malt makes this beer itís bitch.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle shared by Keir- thanks again, Keir! Pours a cloudy amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of caramel malts, citrus fruits, and a lot of leafy, resinous hops. Flavor of tropical and citrus fruits, caramel, tea, resinous hops, and sweet syrup. Medium-bodied, with a mouthfeel that starts juicy and finishes sweet and syrupy. Moderate carbonation. $110K+OT is like $1K to me.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Thanks to Dixonian for sharing this bottle. This is the first of the 110K+OT beers that I have tried and I am looking forward to it.
The beer pours an orange color with a white head. The aroma is incredibly sweet with a ton of sugar and toffee and a hint of fruit. Definitely not what I expected from a DIPA. The aroma is unfortunately more of the same. I get a lot of sweet orange and toffee notes, with some sugar thrown in. The beer tastes about like orange marmalade or jelly, with not real bitterness or other notes that resemble a DIPA. This beer is simply a sugary, sweet mess that doesnít work at all. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. I donít understand the higher ratings because this is a mess that is just simply not drinkable.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
(750ml bottle thanks to Ericandersnavy) clearish amber, soapy tan bubbles. Nose of funky hops, agave, taste is nasty. Very sweet, funky, toasty, gross, unfermented sweet sugars. Donít like it. Syrupy.
