3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to Sarah. Pours a clear amber gold with a light brown head that lasted throughout the beer. Aroma has a strong pine note with a good amount of resin and a hint of citrus. Flavor begins with a bit of sweet grain that is quickly taken over by strong pine that ends quite dank with some resin and a bit of earthiness. A bit sticky on the tongue.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazy copper pour with white head and a good amount of sediment. Aroma is corn bread, earthy and medicinal hops, candied grapefruit. Full bodied. Punch of citrus bitterness that lingers and doesn’t get cut out by any sweetness. Herbal, piney finish. Extreme bitter, not overly enjoyable.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Pours an amber gold, somewhat hazy, big off white head, soapy lacing on the glass. Typical American DIPA aroma of grapefruit, citrus, some caramel malt. Same as the taste with some chalkiness and more of a malt profile than originally expected but still a hop bomb. Finish is long and bitter. More balanced than some of the DIPA, but very enjoyable as a hophead.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Smells of more malt and honey than hops. Very pleasant, sweet, non-aggressive aroma. Hazy light golden color with a big, bubbly, sticky white head. Taste is also not as aggressive as one would expect. Malt and honey up front with the only hop bitterness coming through in the aftertaste. 10% ABV is extremely well hidden. Palate is slick yet bubbly, it goes down smooth but reminds you that your’e drinking an Imperial IPA. I loved this, I must admit that I liked it even more than the Yin & Yang mixture. I’m glad I bought 4 of these rather than buying the single bottles just to mix. Very very drinkable DIPA. Highly recommend.

Pours a slightly cloudy lighter amber colour with a medium off white head. Aroma is of floral and citrus hops with some grapefruit and noticeable caramel malts. Taste is a little sweet initially but is quickly overtaken by a strong bitterness. Medium body, lively carbonation, and creamy on the palate. Overall very good.
