3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared with alexsdad06. Poured clear red copper color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy complex hop aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a good beer that exceeded my expectations.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle, shared by alexsdad06. Best by 08/08/14. Mostly hazy orange amber color. Thin off-white head, leaves a couple bits of lace. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, crisp, lighter carbonation, more dry finish. Pretty easy-drinking and tasty for 8.5%. Good big resiny hop, get some of the passion fruit. Light spiciness to the flavor. Moderate to bigger bitter taste, light sweet malt. Little caramel malt. Tasty, balanced double IPA. 8.5% is right around the sweet spot for me.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz bottle shared with the group. Pours a clear orange golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have a West coast hop profile, caramel malt, some buttery toffee/butterscotch notes more with the flavor, mild bitterness. This is interesting in that it has barley wine like character. Is it age or was it intended to be like this?
