3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2 June 2012, bottle. Bright yellow, clear, no bubbles. Nose is skunky grassy hops. Thin body and mildly fizzy. More hops in taste than I was expecting but most of the bitterness kicks in in the finish.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sample as a bonus beer at the Smuttynose tasting at Ale Wine & Spirits on 4/27/12. Clear yellow/gold pour with a medium white head. Citrus and pine hops in the nose, with some sweet malt. Malty flavor with strong citrusy and piney hop presence and a sweet malt finish. I’ve been pretty much on the fence about this brewery since trying several of their beers, but this one is pushing me over to the fan side for sure.

Serving: Draft at Fire Works Leesburg. It pours a cloudy, dirty orange with a small, white head. The nose is all hops. The flavor has lots of herbal, medium pine, and light tropical hop notes. Not much from the malt side. Long, bitter, and dry finish. Definitely west coast style.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Release #16 8.9% ABV. Sampled from 22oz bomber. Appearance is very typical for a DIPA with a nice white head that fades away and leaves a little ring around the top of the beer. The aroma is soft pine note resins and sweet fruit notes. The taste follows the aroma very nicely and has a very full mouthfeel. Overall this is a great beer.
