On tap at Capitol Tap Room. Rich flavor and full bodied hop flavor but kind of a dusty finish. Aroma is a bit sour but complex taste array makes up for it.

Aromas citrus and citrus peel. Great clean taste with slight bitterness. Slight citrus in aftertaste as well. Doesn’t feel like 9.5 percent at all. Super smooth and tasty.

From the bottle. Nice thick head, aroma of pure citrus! Very bitter! Dry finish. Very good dipa! Takes hops of wrath up a notch. Never disappointed by dust bowl.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap @ Dust Bowl. Clear orange pour with a white head. Opens up kind of boozy and vegetal, but there is a lot of pine and grassy hop character to it as well. A little on the spicy side and quite a bit of toasted and caramel malt aromas. Flavor is kind of sharp. A bunch of bitterness and alcohol. Tons and tons of pine, in particular. A bit of peach, sweet orange, and a little grapefruit peel. Not terribly impressive.

Bottle from my aunt Pam. Orange pour with a big white head. Aroma is sweet caramel, toast, and grapefruit. Taste is lots of citrus, but more caramel, alcohol, and a sticky finish.

Great clarity. Probably shade light by style, but who cares. Solid malt foundation for big hops. A little too easy to gulp. Pairs well with full flavored cheese - Stilton, etc.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours deep amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of citrusy and floral and lightly fruity hops, some pale and caramel malts, and light dough. Flavor the same with a nice hoppiness. Average texture. A solid double IPA, but could be a little more balanced.
