3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Almost clear deep golden color with a off white head. Fruity, resin and hoppy aroma. A bit to fruity. Medium + body. A bit unbalanced. To much over on the sweet side. Tropical, malty, grapefruit hoppy and a bit resinous flavor.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, shared by Cuningham. Finally finishing all US states. It pours a dense finger thick beige head over an almost clear dark golden body. It’s quite alcoholic on the nose, with malty sugar, resins and pine cones. It’s sweet and bitter in the mouth, full-bodied, warming and hoppy. Some peaches. Lasting quite bitter finish. A decent beer, but it lacks some balance and feels quite rough. 150530

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
From a bottle. Pours a dark amber with minimal head and decent lacing. Aroma is straight bananas. Taste is banana on the nose with a malty overtone and a bitter finish. A decent beer...unfortunately not a good example of a DIPA.

12 ounce bottle courtesy of jackl. Thanks! Pours a clear copper with a thin off-white head. Aroma of citrus, herbal hops and caramel malt. The taste is bitter resin, citrus, tropical hops and caramel malt. Medium bodied, lingering bitterness, a little boring, but solid.

On tap; poured a dark orange color with a smallish head. Aroma of orange, candi sugar, and fruit sugar. Easy to drink. Some nice sugar qualities. Some fruit juice and honeysuckle qualities. Good stuff

Draft at the source, new location. Hazy golden amber color, fluffy white head, lacey lacing (what else would the lacing look like? but that’s what my notes say, so it must have meant something to me at the time). Aroma of fruity pine. Taste has pine resin and bitter fruit. Nice body. Solid.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Guess Who?, Bentonville. Slightly hazy deep orange pour with a large frothy white head. Pretty much a bunch of caramel-slathered cardboard on the nose. Not a great start. Flavors are pretty subdued. Malt-forward. Loads of caramel with a bit of hot peach fruit leather. More stale cardboard. Pretty boozy, somewhat oily. Not good.
