3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing.
Body is dark yellow to light amber.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (herbs, grapefruit, flowers).
Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter.
Medium to full body, velvety texture, lively carbonation, lightly to moderately alcoholic.
The clear winner in a face-off with 3 other DIPAs (from Pikes Peak, Green Flash, and Ninkasi)...it’s still not great, but it wins mainly because it’s actually drinkable and pretty much without flaws. Not much aroma, but what’s there is as expected with no off notes. Clean/balanced finish makes it drinkable for its size...not as syrupy or abrasive as most.

4.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
A well-crafted imperial ipa! Not much of an aroma given the punch of flavor! Starts and finishes strong. 8.5% alcohol is a bonus but wouldn't guess from taste. Overall = impressive!

Poured from a 12. Flavor is tropical fruit and hoppy. Has an initial piney, sweat sock flavor...but then gives way to tropical fruits like mango and papaya. Finishes slightly bitter, yet still sweet.

Beautiful shinny clear solid golden color with a creamy white head. Very balanced pine/ resinous aroma with some tropical fruits notes.
