2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Shared bomber poured to snifters, displaying a fairly clear, copper color, with a modest layer of off white head foam that diminished quickly to a thin ring & film, and left some spotty lacing. The nose was butterscotch, malt, a touch of sweetness, and more as ripened stone fruit than citrus. Medium bodied, okay carbonation, with a little soapiness, but somewhat redeemed by adequate strength to the herbaceous, earthy, and lingering hop bitterness. Not DIPA quality at this point, but the bottle was probably aged, and badly handled.

Tasted from a bomber at Lemon Tree in Chesterton IN. It poured a cloudy orangish hue with an off white head and streaky lacing. Hop and citrus aroma with a taste to match. Very refreshing for a double IPA. A great complement to Mediterranean food.

Crazy hoppy and malty taste. Poured from bomber. Reddish color with white head. Floral. Grapefruit. A hop bomb. A little 'much'.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rated on 8-13-2011 (Bottle) When poured, this beer has a small fizzy off-white head, gold transparent body, very fizzy, fast rising carbonation observed, and very little lacing. The aroma is caramel malt, aromatic hops and fruity. The taste is bitter, caramel malt and citrus hops. The mouthfeel is lively carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. This beer for the style is not very hoppy tasting which is a surprise. Interesting.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber bottle. Slightly hazy but a very reddish colour. The aroma on this is malt heavy with sweets and caramel notes with a backdrop of resinous hops. On the palate that sticky resinous hoppy notes are at the flavour forefront with a bitter hoppy finish and has a slight boozy kick. I’d say this one is better than what I expected.

bottle from Barberry but made locally. Pretty good, a good level of malts smooths out the IBUs. Bitter enough but not too aromatic

Pint on tap at Trion Tavern. Mostly clear red / orange color. Thin off-white head. Very nice lace. Bigger body. Smooth, crisp lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Nice grapefruit, spicy hop character, light caramel malt. Some tropical fruit. Nice long hoppy aftertaste. Bigger bitter taste. Light zestiness. Very enjoyable DIPA.

Nice big DIPA without an overpowering bitterness.. Nice malty backbone makes this 100 IBU beer very drinkable. Pours a dark golden color, nice lacing in the glass. Will be looking for this one in the stores. Sold in bombers only

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
tap at Dash In - Pours hazy copper with a small off-white head. There’s a nice grapefruit hop aroma. Of course the flavor is high on the bitterness. Citrus comes through well. It’s medium to full bodied with a long, bitter finish. Good, but it’s not as crisp as another IIPA I had recently.
