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.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
On draft at the brewery
Beer sure looks good in a snifter.
Nice lacy head
Nice amber/golden çolor.
Initial bitterness is good then dissipates to a soapy sweet aftertaste.
A small amount of residual bitterness.
Unbalanced and lacking in hop backbone.
It is really trying to be a great beer, biggest flaw is the soapy slippery taste.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Too sweet on the nose and tongue - of grapefruit and dominated by caramel, oddly enough. Resinous, kinda piney. Just very confused

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
A pretty shitty DIPA. Totally unfiltered, poop pour. Slight sourness, super malt, no hops. Crappy. Maybe old bottle but still.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Soapy caramel malt aroma, no significant hop aroma.Clear amber with a minimal off white head. Slightly sweet caramel malt followed by bitter grassy hop flavor. Seems a little out of balance....the bitterness and sweetness seemed to be fighting one another instead of working together. Medium body.

Pours a rich amber color and has a citrusy aroma. At 100 IBU there is definitely the bite you’d expect from a double IPA but yet has a quality that makes it very drinkable. Tried both a 22oz. and a growler. Highly recommend.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours red with a nice dense off white head. Nose is orange, citrus, sweet caramel, fruits, grass, resins. Flavor is pretty caramely, but lots of resinous grapefruit and bitter orange peel citrus dank. Mouthfeel is nice. Quite bitter. I really like this one but I think there is too much caramel character for an IIPA or IPA. good.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz bomber poured a cloudy, copper color with white head and little lacing. Aromas of citrus, caramel, and notes of hay or earthiness. Taste is malty bitterness with some mild sweetness. Palate is medium bodied, with a long, dry, astringent finish. Overall, this has some nice flavor but really has more bite and astringent aftertaste than I like. Not bad, but for my money, many others are better.
