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.

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.
