3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orange amber pour with a baby finger of head. Aroma of booze, candy, overripe nectarine. An overload of tangerine up front, candied fruit, old ale, vanilla, booze, mango. Medium body with lower carb. Surprisingly little heat from the high abv.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12/14/13 $10.95!!! First bottle drank at Derry Roads 4th annual Christmas block party.
Poured a hazy copper color that kept a head on it until it was finished.
Very strong sweet smell with a boozy undertone. The taste is both extreme malty and hoppy with a sting undertone of booze. I'm assuming it was fresh (maybe 2 or 3 months old) but too sweet for my taste. Like the bottle says, it can be cellared for 10 years. I'd like to think over time, it would mellow out in both boozieness and sweetness

Fell in love with this beer a couple of years ago and hadnít had it in a while. Still as good as I remember it. Not for the meek.

Poured from a bottle, itís a hazy orange color with a distinctive citrus aroma. The flavor is intense, powerful... You donít chug thus, you sip it to savor the flavors!

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
bottle aged in rotbox for 4+ years. fortunately the bootle notes that this 1 "AGES WELL".
Looks like swampwater dump sludge. pics are pics:
aroma of big huge sweet green raisins, cane sugar, boozy melon, sugared cola and pineapple. not too offensive, but not very inviting either.
taste: big sweet booze boost juice. leaves bitter boozy pineapple. not the most subtle of brews. rather, knocks one over the fucken head.
low marks on the budlight drinkability index. but booze more mellowed than expected. sticky mouthfeel. fine.
shelf turd status: unknown, scroll past
gross, but better than expected.

Bottle, 355ml - Clear amber beer with s large head. Aroma is fruity with notes of peaches, citrus, caramel, cactus fruit, pungent hops and pine needles. Flavor is fruity with notes of peaches, citrus, pineapple, caramel, oranges and alcohol. Wow, this is truly a DIPA in its rightful form.

3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fairly fresh from 7/26/1992, pours a rich copper color with a little head. So much smell: hops, boozy, somewhat floral. Taste is extremely bitter and has a tiny burn from the alcohol content. Definitely something I would drink without food and with a friend or two.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from 06 or 07...plenty of age on this...pours a viscous goldish-orange with some decent head given what it is. Aroma is intensely sweet, boozy, mildly hopped...very in-your-face. Flavor is syrupy sweet with a heavy dose of booze...honey-forward, candied malts and some bitterness throughout the ride. Palate is very resinous and smooth. I must say, this was an interesting drink, and I think Iíll let the second one I have sit for a number of years, but I probably wonít rush out to buy any more.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
draft. into a mini snifter. Wow, straight up nail polish aroma with a touch of hops. slightly hazy with a small white head. taste is sweet with a firm bitterness. moderate hop flavor, but underwhelming. disappointed in this batch. Had it in the past and was much better.
