3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
November 16, 2012 bottle from the brewery. Dark orange pour (like an Arnie Palmer) with nice head that faded quickly. Sweet, fruity and hops in the aroma. Taste was consistent, but just too sweet and a not good bitter finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
As with batch 4, in no manís land as far as style is concerned. Not resembling any IIPA Iíve ever had, though this may have been out for a while. Kinda fruity sweet hops and malt with an odd combo of fruits (curucao) and toast and caramel. You can tell itís hefty, but no heat. Kind of a weird one, but enjoyed."
