3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours orange with a white head. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, pine, and caramel. Taste of juicy citrus, leafy catty hops, resin, substantial bitterness, and a hint of grain. Nice medium body. Overall a pretty solid DIPA with nice hop character.

On tap at Mr. Brews in Verona, WI, on nitro. I find the nitro makes beer almost too smooth and ruins the aroma somehow, but this is still good. Hazy copper, nice white head, floral aroma, yadda yadda yadda.

22oz in Seattle as ’Release 98, 8.7%’ so not the freshest I’m afraid, will try this again. Slight darker orange with nice creamy foam. Deep citrus hops, but a very strong malt backbone as well. Quite sweet too. I imagine this is better fresh.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nitro tap at mellow mushroom. Color is way pale. Nose is hop. Nitro isn't the best for this as it smooths it out too much. Sweet but good balance. Not amazing but wouldn't throw out. Better than average.

This beer was good. I liked it. Strong hop flavor in the aroma through the finish. Sweet with enough malts to cover the alcohol.

Bottle @ home, tfs Vaiz! Aroma is big hops, big caramel, some candy like notes. Flavour is about the same, not as bitter but very hoppy. Nice one.

Taster at the brewery. Pours a clear copper color with white head. Lacy. Aroma is nice and hoppy, hints of pine, resin and a bit of earthiness. Taste is great, nice pine hops and a great malt backbone. Solid bitterness. A bit of sweetness, caramel. Palate is medium body, medium carbonation. Great beer.
