4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a cloudy orange-gold with a small off-white head. The aroma is of hops, grapefruit and smoke. Very sweet with the taste of hops, smoke and grapefruit. Smooth with an carbonated slight alcohol finish. Nice.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
12oz brown bottle with born on date, poured into a pint glass. A nice, clear golden amber with consistent carbonation action, a perfect 2 finger head that sticks around. On the nose, citrus and hops, lots of hops. You can smell it as soon as you crack open the bottle, and you can still smell it when you set the beer down. Amazing! A well balanced mix of citrus (grapefruit), grassy hops, and maybe a touch of alcohol. A nice clean smell. The palate is erfectly balanced considering this hop explosion. Again, a nice dosage of citrus. You finally pick up the alcohol towards the end. An all around great brew. The hops are there but not overdone. It has a nice medium to heavy body that is smooth and quenching. I wish I could have my fridge stocked full of this. Great treat .

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Drank from a glass that was poured from a 12oz bottle. For having a higher alcohol percentage the taste of it was masked by the hoppiness. Really good beer but thought it was rather heavy. I wish I could of drank more of it but was full after a couple.

3.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Wonderful aroma super duper clear. Very hoppy oily and cloying. Not to my liking. Not very drinkable. I have had many DIPAs many drinkable. This one is just too oily and viscous.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz bottle- pours a golden amber color with a quickly disappearing head. Lacing sticks to the glass for some time. Strong aroma of hops and floral elements. Bitter on the palate but chewy. A bit of alcohol burn on the finish. Overall a great IIPA. One of my top 5 for the category.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a nice golden pinkish color with a rapidly dissipating head. Strong floral, hoppy accented aroma. Not too strong.
Rich hoppy flavor with just the right amount of maltiness. Pleasant Imperial. Lingering hops. Deliciously bitter without being too stout. An amazingly high quality IPA. Recommended

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Not a great head but lingers well with excellent lacing. Nose of sweet English malt, hops, and a slight alcohol note. Taste of sweet malt, caramel, and fruity hops. Great, full mouthfeel. Awesome beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours rich amber with volumious head. Moderate lacing. Nose is citrus with a hint of pear and apricot. Hops are monstrous pine and resin, but as it warms to proper temp malt backbone really plays a solid balance. Excellent crisp mouth feel with nice finish. All in all a nice ipa from an even nicer brewer.

A little malty and overly sweet. Not as good as 60 minute. Tried at HOBNOB with Ruby.

One of the best IIPAs on the market, for sure. I tried one out of a Randall recently at the brewpub in Rehoboth. Attempted several times to switch beers, but kept coming back. The stuff is like crack (I assume). If I could choose my own death, it would be by drowning in a vat of DFH 90-Minute.
