3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Glowing orange fluid. head was all soapy and shit with some wet drippy lacing. Must accented fruit hop nose with some apricot jamming in there, and some of that alcohol too. Flavors are bitter in like a wrong way...like plasticy, or the white stuff on an orange or lemon peel, or aspirin, or just fuck man, leave it to dogfish head to bring an extreme kind of bad bitterness to the $13 bottled beer experience...and fucking christ, the alcohol is oh so present, so not only is it retarded wrong bittered, its fucking boozy too, makes me feel quesy...dried lemon peel + 10% alcohol = a dumb idea.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. A hazy golden color with a white head. A strong pine aroma with a dry, bitter piney malty and cereal flavor. A decent body but it doesnít shine in either the aroma or flavor.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Robert Johnson--a musical figure worthy of a beer. Floral, fruity--softer citrus than a traditional DIPA. Tickles at first with some acidity and bitterness, turning deeply bitter in the mid-palate, but mellowing with a round (though still somewhat astringent) Italian note: something like basil and rosemary. Some alcoholic plain through the late finish, tingling up the nose. Reasonably good but could use cellaring or some taming of some kind. Thanks to Jazz88 for all that he is and does...like having good beers in the fridge. :-)

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Orange-tinted golden pour. Big eggy head. Big Citrus hoppy nose. Kind of greasy body* Strong bitter slightly viscous finish. Nice Strong DIPA but not my favorite.
*brewers should be careful with citrus peel, it leaves an oily remnant that IMHO is unpleasant. I had the same problem with Moylanís Black and Orange

Pours a gorgeous foggy golden yellow with a thin white head and great lacing. Aroma is great pine hops with a lemon tartness that blends so well with the hops it just tickles the nose. Taste is a blast of pine hop bitterness with the tartness of lemon. I can feel the booze hit but I donít mind it. I embrace it. Iíd definitely have it again.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bomber. Pours opaque apricot, thin white head. Aroma is potato chips and faint hops. I canít believe how light the scent is--thought there would be more of a hops bite. Flavor is hoppy bitter, crisp, with a lighter body than I expected. Finish is rather alcoholic, and not as well blended as I would prefer. If thereís one thing I dislike from a beer itís feeling a definite alcohol heat. I reserve that for liquor. I usually enjoy imp IPAs, but this particular beer (or bottle-maybe itís off) is not my bag.

hoppy aroma, golden-orange in color with a bit of a white head. not quite an IPA, but a nice hoppy ale, moderately sweet, but with a bitter lemon peel finish.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Nice fresh hoppy aroma. Good amount of head. Tastes pretty much like any double IPA with nuances of lemon zest. The lemons seemed faint to me but they were there, nonetheless. Slightly sweet and alcohol is well hidden for 10%. Finishes fairly bitter.
