4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured up on tap at GABF 2012 with a clear gold body that supports a light tan head of foam. The aroma offers up mango like tropical fruit notes with just a sliver of pine off in the background and a slim sweet malt base that is showing through. The taste is similar with a decent level of mango tropical fruitiness as well as some bitter tangelo that gets sweetened up by a little bit of malt. The hops are resiny with just a little smattering of flavor hops too. It seems to be more of a IPA level of richness and flavor and hoppiness rather than a IIPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Light amber color, but the beer delivers a huge floral aroma and flavor component. Bit bitter, but the floral perfume is predominate. Big DIPA, but not overpowering. (#4046, 12/16/2010)

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
From the bottle at SAVOR 2011.
Pours a clear golden color with an average white head. A slight amount of lacing as it goes down before setting into a thin collar. The nose was really grainy with some slight citrus and floral hops in the background. Similarly, the taste was just overrun with grainy malt and bordered on being tannic. Body was medium and dry with some slight bitterness in the finish. I wasn’t a big fan.
