3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Resin, spruce, pungent citrus, caramel, and cereal find their way through my nostrils. The caramel is the most welcome, it really balances this ale and adds substance. Looks just fine in the glass, with a frothy white head that slowly releases the aroma. Medium sweetness initially, which is pleasantly washed away by lingering medium bitterness. Body is light, texture is slick, almost oily. A fine double pale ale or DIPA, and worthy of trying if you like caramel notes in your ales.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
tap at Dash In, listed as a Double Pale Ale - Pours a very hazy caramel color with a small lingering tan head. It smells fruity with caramel and alcohol. Itís heavily hopped with a good caramel malt backbone. Medium to full bodied with a long, bitter finish, itís a good beer.

Pour from a 22oz bottle. Reddish amber brew with luscious thick tan head. Nice aroma of sweet malts, spicy hops, a little citrus and earth. Taste is very light caramel at the start with building sweetness and then a decent spice/resin/earth finish. Vewry nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
22oz bomber from fletche00, thanks Zach. This one poured a deep dark tea brown with an average sized long lasting super frothy light beige/off white head, lasting is impressive on this one. Aroma is a dried sugar pine apple with lightly brown toast, tropical fruits, citrus hops. Medium bodied with softer carbonation and a quicker fading aftertaste. Flavor is solid, notes of dried out pineapple, toast, old dry sugar, sugary sun dried tropical fruits, dough and some tea leaves. Actually very solid despite my spotty description.

Tap at source. Sweet caramel orange malt aroma. Hazy amber with a small ivory head, decent lacing. Caramel malt, floral-citrus hops, earthy, alcohol flavor. Full sticky, smooth, creamy body. Nice malt-hop balance.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft at Twenty Tap. Pours a deep amber with an offwhite head. The nose is soft and floral, citrusy with a ton of caramel. Heavy in the nose overall. On tasting, there is a big bitterness that is followed by a ton of caramel. Not overly sweet but the caramel dominates. Hop flavor is restrained. Hints of butterscotch as well. Not a fan at all.

Pretty good. A nice hoppy aroma and flavor which is balanced quite nicely with the malts. A good beer and one of the better I had at Figure Eight.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap: Hazy golden hue with small but lasting head, okay lace. The aroma has notes of resiny piney hops, grapefruit and tangerine esters, bready and toffee malts, hint of dusty yeast esters. The taste is well balanced between the hop bitterness and malty sweetness, finishes mostly clean and shows minimal alcohol. A bit of chalky character on the aftertaste. The mouth feel is medium to full-bodied with lively carbonation, slightly sticky, alcohol well hidden. Overall a very solid offering and one I would like to try again.
