2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled at GABF 2011. Pours an amberish orang with a small white head. Aroma has a lot of citrus and floral notes. Unfortunately, the flavor is cardboard and mild hops. Kind of flabby on the tongue. Oxidized for sure. Hard to put even my total 1 oz. pour back. This is sad because the aroma hinted at great things for this beer. I will re-rated if I get a better sample of this beer. This was very cool to try, though.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The Dan Journal #442. Tasted 2/6/11. Growler from the Brewpub. Filtered with a dark golden hue. Off-white bubbled head. Aromas of mild grapefruit and olives. Medium bodied and off and oddly bitter. Sulfurous and mild. It gets better as it opens up and comes to room temperature. Bright grapefruity flavors. Decent yet mild. Drinkable yet tame.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - thanks Mora2000 for state #49! Pours hazy amber with a small off-white head that dissipates quickly with good lacing. Aroma is caramel, pine. Flavor is the same, medium sweet and lightly bitter; piney hops and caramel malts dominate. Bitterness increases to the finish and becomes slightly metallic. Medium body, oily mouthfeel. Actually not bad, likely a bit old. Bottle was notched "07" but I am not sure which year, or if that was a bottled on or a best buy date.

Draft. Bulldog. Jackson MS. Light gold and clear. Nose is mild as its very cold. Taste is malty with some nice sweeter hops. Sticky and sweet. Goes down smooth. Nice. Points off for no aroma.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 27, 2011 Bottle from ben4321 - my first Arkansas tick! Pours an orange cloudy haze, light head. Aroma is citrus, light floral. Citrus and hop up front on taste, medium bitterness, then some floral on the finish. Medium body, long finish from the hops. A solid example of the DIPA style, and apparently it is not only just available on draft, as I poured myself one out of a bottle.
