0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Let me start by saying that I am a fan of DuClaw and the beers they make. I had never had a"bad" beer from them. That is, until I tried Serum. I hated this beer. I hated everything about it. I tried to like it. I gave it every chance. I thought maybe it has to be paired with something. Tried it with sweet, tried it with savory, tried it warm, cold... Tastes like your chewing a hop bush. YUK!!!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour on tap, hazy orange-yellow pour with white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, toffee, some biscuit into a bit of orange, some jam, hints of pine into a bit of grass and spice. Taste is a mix of grass, spice, earth into caramel, toffee, some orange, grapefruit, finishing fairly bitter, slightly sweet. Not bad.

Pours a hazy orange collor with a sudsy white head. Aroma was nice with citrus hops and some pine. Taste was orange, light grapefruit, bread, and hints of sweet malts. Solid double IPA and better than I was expecting.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle to shaker glass. Pours hazy amber, quick 1 finger head. Nice lacing and retention. Aroma of spruce tips and citrus. Taste is pretty balanced with just enough sweetness from the malt to tame the bitterness of the hop bomb. Medium bodied, light carbonation and slightly oily mouth feel. Finishes medium bitter with notes of grapefruit, pine, caramel, hop resin and slight alcohol. I like it!
