3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Mostly clear light copper orange, foamy off-white head settles and fades. Earthy perfumed hop aroma. Floral herbal bitter spicy hops dominate the taste, some farmyard, sweet malt and citrus is subdued. Average carbonation, medium-full bodied, aggressively hopped. Spruce, grapefruit and some caramel malt become more prevalent as it warms. ABV well hidden. Bitter hoppy finish. DNFL (Definately Not For Lagerboys)

Somewhat dank orange citrus flavor to this one, has an odd smell to it that I can't put my finger on. The taste is very good though - very bitter and hoppy. Poured from 22oz bottle to maudite glass. Great beer overall, just didn't love smell

A - 2 fingers of off-white yellowish head creates deep mounds and sticky lacing. Light amber color.
S - A mix of oily citrus, skunky herbal, and earthy hops. A candy sweet malt sits shyly on the back row.
T - A nutty, earthy, tangerine citrus hops blast a whirlwind of flavor. Leafy herbal flavors sweep in and turns the flavor on a dime. The caramel malt hold up good and a white sugar sweetness adds to contend with the hops. Finish is dry and biscuty.
M - Awesome mouthfeel! Starts sudsy creamy then goes thick and silky.
The Summit and Nugget hops definatly add a different twist to the hop profile. Donít know how fresh this was but it didnít seem like 101 ibuís. A fine herbal DIPA.

Aroma starts out like itís all about the citrus and sunshine, suddenly the sun is blotted out and dank, dark green forest floor aromas waft past your nose, the clouds roll away and the sunny citrus reappears. Repeat ad infinitum, or until your bottle is finished, whichever comes first. For me, the empty bottle came first. A little rough in the finish, but when youíre punching in this weight range we canít expect all butterflies and rainbows, can we.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650mL bottle. Pours hazy orange-gold with a small white head that leaves some lacing. Lots of fruit! Passionfruit and citrus dominate the aroma, some yeast, honey, a little malt and some toast. The bitterness is high but tempered by the malt, and itís also fairly sweet. This bottleís been sitting around for a while but the flavours are still quite "fresh". Medium body, soft carbonation, quite creamy with a lingering finish.
