3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at World Craft Beer Tasting 2014. Balanced sort of nose, with caramel quite apparent. and small hopping behind. Amber/copper color. Initial is much as the aroma, balanced, solid caramel backbone. Piney hopping steps up in mid palate. Medium strength hops in final. Has nice hop jump. Not over the top. Pleasant.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a medium beige head. Nose is pine/resin, caramel, citrus. Flavor is sweet up front and finishes bitter, follows the nose. Solid, I enjoyed this one, but it wasn’t as malty as other DIPAs I’ve tasted.

On tap at the GJBF in Osaka 2014. A clear deep copper color. It has a somewhat musty resinous hoppy pungent nose. Well balanced though bitter and while not complex it is satisfying as all hell .

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ Malarkey’s. Pours dark golden amber with medium-thin white head. Aroma is mild caramel malt and thin floral hops. Taste is sweet lightly syrupy dark caramel malt and piney bitter hops. Very malt forward DIPA with lingering bitter finish. Not bad, and one you can usually find cheap and easily in the PNW. Could use more flavor from the hops though.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, brought back from the Xmas road trip. Pours a nice caramel color topped with a monster beige head. Lots of sticky lacing follows a lumpy finger to the bottom of the glass. Nose is good, a sweet and piney blend. Good caramel malts and citrus balance the florals. Overall quite easy to drink, but potent. Good stuff.
