5/3/2014. On tap at the brewery. Amber color with a white head. Pine and caramel aromas with hints of hops. A pronounced alcohol burn, but no overwhelming. Caramel flavors with a nice malt backbone.

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.

Growler thanks to BarZigKin. Notes of apricots, grass, and pine resin. Watery mouthfeel. Kinda of what you see is what you get.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear orange in color, aroma is minimal hops.... Flavor is more malty than hoppy, hard to call this a pale ale much less a DIPA... Mostly watery and sweet malts, minimal hops on the finish... Shockingly disappointing, but I am from the West Coast....

Had at the Foam beer festival in Fayetteville Spring 2013. Pours amber. Significant malt flavor and rather sweet for my taste. Good overall though.

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.

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.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Into a pint glass. Nice two fingers of foam head. Cloudy copper with lots of bubbles visible.
A soft grapefruit smell.
Bold pine and lemon taste. An almost crushing bitterness without let up.
Medium body and moderate carbonation.
A solid double IPA. From beginning to end it lets you know with its bitterness. A little more complex taste would be bonus.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
The last two guys to rate this on here are some of my best friends, and top beer nerds, but Itís like were drinking a different beer. Maybe because itís a winter seasonal and Iím drinking it on July...
Pours like your average corporate beer, with perhaps a little more color and lacing. It doesnít smell good or bad, thereís almost no aroma at all. Palate is flat as well, I didnít get much hops, a little sugar maybe, but it basically tastes like a flat english beer to me. I donít like flat english beer. Finishes clean, so thereís that, but thatís about it.
