3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Clear reddish gold pour, with a white head. Bitter hops, lemon, sweet malt, slightly metallic, citric acidity, and light bread. Kind of like DIPA lemon drop candy. Pretty good, better than what I was expecting.

Pours light amber with a small white head. Citrus and malt aroma. Resinous hops on a medium body, with just a hint of the lemon. Quite nice.

So-so DIPA. Lttle malty smell, where’s the hops. Ok looks, its filtered. Pellet hops were used Centennial. Golden body. A little head, lace. Dry hopped Centennial. The lemony finish is the taste, period.Doug’s bottle, thank you very much for sharing. OK drinkability.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to rwinzing on BA. Clear deep yellow pour, very well carbonated and an aroma of soapy hops, citrus. Flavor is syrupy lemon, hops, overall a very rich beer. Decent and unqiue enough to pick up, but not sure if I’d trade for it again.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft - Poured a slightly hazy orange-amber in color with a small off-white head that disappeared quickly. Aroma is of citrus hops (lemony) with a decent amount of mat mixed in. Flavor was missing some of the bright citrus present in the aroma, but the pine resin made up for it. Maltiness provides a good balance to the hop bitterness. A decent DIPA...

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Poured into a DT tulip glass a copper orange color with a slight collared head. Nice aroma of orange, lemon, and slight pine. Medium mouthfeel. Not overly bitter, has a nice maltiness to it. The lemon comes out minimally but is a nice addition to it. Some floral type notes as well. Some pine.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750, capped. Pours a murky bright burnished orange with a dense and creamy, sudsy white head. Loose stringy lace. Oranges and caramel on the nose. Creamy medium body, getting pretty dense in spots, with light and lively carb. Caramel and oranges on the mid palate with a somewhat acrid resiny finish. Somewhat indifferently put together, given the complexity you might expect from tons of hops and 10% abv.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml. bottle- Pours hazy orange with nice lacework and a nice head that collapses fairly quickly. Aroma is hoppy resinous at first then malty, I detect berries, and lemon pledge. The taste is definitely hoppy, with berries, some lemon, alcohol is apparent, it could be hidden better. Body is full, carbonation is medium, big beer. Overall a good beer.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml bottle into tulip. Pours hazy orange with a large off-white head with good retention that leaves some nice lacework. Aroma is honeysuckle floral, sticky buns. Taste is bittersweet, meaty, and alcoholic. Lemon is there but not in your face. Finish is long and bitter, carbonation is medium, mouthfeel is creamy. Different than your average DIPA, but that’s a good thing. Tasty.
