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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750ml bottle from Liquor Loft. Copper-orange pour with finger of sturdy off-white and spotty stick. Big aroma of apricot, honey and other tropical fruits I canít quite put my finger on. Taste is sweet citrusy, earthy hops, caramel, grapefruit, honey and cereal. Hmm... didnít realize this was a DIPA until I started rating. Says something about it -- comes off as part boozy american strong ale mixed with an ipa. Kinda works for me. A DIPA sipa. Did I say it was boozy?

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
6/6/12. 750mL bottle. Really hazy orange pour with a nice khaki head. Loaded aroma with tons of hops, bits of orange sweetness, plenty of malt, and a definite alcohol kick. Very sweet malty flavor with plenty of citrus and orange. Lingering dank hops and a sense of alcohol again. Eh.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a unclear amber with some loose white bubbles for a head. Aroma is tons of citrus, white peach, light touches of spice, with some sweet malt of the background. Flavor is sweetness up front, fruity orange and hops through the middle fading to a resiny bitter finish. Noticeable alcohol.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a golden copper with no head or lacing. Aroma of hops and Malta in large quantities... Already thinking this is going to be too much. Taste follows, the closet thing I can compare it to is hoppy cough syrup. Too sweet, too malty and the bitterness does not balance this out. Not my type of beer, couldn't finish the glass.

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.
