3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark orange with medium white head, minimal lacing. Aroma of toasted malt, floral and herbal hops, citrus, resin, and slight cereal. Flavor matches well and is really enjoyable. Great beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had this on Nitro draft. Think it might be better on regular draft as the carb ended up a little soft. Big dank aroma. Flavor is nicely balanced with a bitter somewhat astringent finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
nitro tap - This one has a surprisingly mild hop led aroma. The nitro gives it a dense, long lasting head. The flavor is bitter as one would expect but not hugely so. Itís actually pretty balanced. Thereís a medium body and a smooth palate thatís followed up with an enduring bitterness in the finish. Itís good but I expected more from an IIPA as I love the style.

On tap at Colorado Plus. Pours a cloudy amber with significant head and lace. Aroma of grapefruit hops. Significant carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of straw & grapefruit hops, caramel, malts. Overall very tasty...a bold hop bomb.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
651 ml. bottle. Release #67. 8.4% ABV. Pours a thick, well retained ivory head, with extensive and heavy lacing, over a hazy amber (SRM 12) body, multiple particles on the finish of pour....nose is pine, resin, grapefruit peel, hints of toffee/caramel, minimal esters.....taste is sweet with light toffee/caramel tones, big pine, resin grapefruit, finishing with a lingering moderate bitterness.....mouth feel thick, slightly chewy, sticky, alcohol warmth present, carbonation low, with light acid. This is hop dominated, but the malt sweetness really comes through to balance back. The net of it, considering the forces used, is a remarkably straight forward beer with the heavy malt sweetness balancing the highly bitter but simple in aroma and flavor hops. The bottle was probably poorly handled. BJCP 7/1/14/4/6

Had a pint on tap at World of Beer Columbus, from a firkin. Very nice. Not over the top in any way. Creamy, fresh, and opulent indeed :-)
