3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle at home. Pours a clear orange amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have some caramel malt, sticky citrus, dank hops, a resiny note, toasted bread, the flavor fades a bit at the finish. Not overly bitter with the hops being more citrus, herbal, resiny.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at The Brass Tap - Cincinnati. Pours a clear amber orange with a finger of off-white head that laces the glass. Aroma of caramel and toasted malts, leaves, sweat, citrus, and florals. Flavor of caramel, leaves, toast, earth, nuts, wet hay, and grass. Light-bodied, with an earthy mouthfeel and modest carbonation. Didn’t leave much of an impression.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy orange with a solid 1/2" white head, 1/2" of solid lacing with swirls of lace above. Aroma is pine and grapefruit. Expecting a very hoppy brew, I was surprised to find this to be a delicious 50/50 mix of strong pine hops and strong sweet malt. Neither has the advantage, and both find their way to a long finish that is actually first one, then the other. A marvelous concoction.

Bottle pour slight hazy orange. Nose floral, mango, and resin. Taste similar to nose up front, followed by some sweet and then bitter on finish. Nice aromatic use of hops, easy drinking.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not nearly hoppy enough to be a DIPA. ABV is right but maybe a little more dry hopping is in order. Very malty nose average hop flavor.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is pine hops and malt. Taste is exactly the same, with a nice hop bitterness that isn’t overpowering, which piney hops can be sometimes. "Murky amber" color seems to be the description of choice, and that fits. Medium body with pleasant, fairly high carbonation. Strange that piney bitterness dominates with this being made with Galaxy hops. Still, very solid IPA.

Bottle to snifter (bottled on 10/25/13; shared with the Mrs.). Looks good; a cloudy deep orange with off-white lacing. Smells solid; nice and hoppy with a medium-bodied pale malt backbone. Tastes like it smells with a nice, well-balanced mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled @ Mass Brewers Fest @ Julio’s Liquors. Poured dark gold with a small off white head. Sinus clearing pine resin aroma. Flavor has sharp hop bitterness tempered with a nice fruitiness, all with a mild malt backbone. Full bodied with some pucker power. Good, I’d find this to drink again.
