Had this draft beer during the 7/4 beer tour 2014 at the Bocktown. Sweet mild aroma like a friendly fruity perfume. Yes, from the first sip its strong and mouth coating syrupy. A little lighter than most double ipa. Could actually be in the regular ipa style. Quite alky on the uptake. The finish does have this saddle thing going on.

Thin head of off-white bubbles with light carbonation. Lots of caramel malts in the aroma with some tea leaves and dried fruit. Color is a hazy copper. Lots more caramel and dry earthy flavor to go along with a bit of grapefruit pith and pine sap. Light alcohol presence. Balanced pretty well. Finshes bitter with lingering tea leaves and grapefruit. A decent IIPA!

Too malty/syrup tasting for me. Would definitely prefer a dryer taste. Could imagine this going well with some really smokey gourmet grilled cheese though.

Bottle. Dark gold with a big white head. Aroma is caramel malt and fruity. Taste is tons of fake fruit. Lots of pear and Jolly Ranchers. Medium mouthfeel and carb. Eh.

Poured hazy copper colored with a small white head. Aroma of fresh piney hops and toffee. Kind of sweet for my tastes but pretty solid.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
An OK IIPA. I’m a little bored with these east coast IIPAs. Aroma was good. Strong caramel malt with a hint of grapefruit. Pour was a clear medium gold with a one finger off white head. Taste was mostly malt. Strong caramel flavor with not much hop flavor. Finish was overly sweet and sticky on the back of the mouth. In a blind taste test I would think this was a barley wine. Mild carbonation.

Pours a clear light gold with white head and decent lacing. Sweet aromas, honey and fruity. Very sweet - - grapefruit, honey, lemon, strawberry. Highly carbonated, very dry. An odd beer.
