Draft. Dark gold/amber pour, small head, some retention/lace. Aroma is light citrus, caramel. Taste is quite malty, moderately bitter, pine/resin/citrus hops. Palate is soft, a bit syrupy, bitter finish.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma of juniper, citrus, malt, taste is more juniper berries, citrus, maltiness, some alcohol. I like gin, so this was drinkable for me!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear, amber-copper with a thin, off-white head.
Orange, honey-cough syrup aroma.
Taste is semi-sweet, spicy orange malt, juniper flavour.
Slight alcohol bittering, but rather well masked for the strength...

Orange pour from draft at flat 12. White head. Crazy fruity and hoppy. Tastes "fresh". Really good. Pine and bitter too

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy dark brown with 1 finger dense white head. Smells like aged bigfoot, lots of toffee, a bit of hops. Taste is similar, big and malty, some toffee notes with a slightly bitter finish. Finish is a bit hollow. Strange beer, and not what I was expecting, but not bad at all.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from StFun. Thanks! A toasted caramel malt, brown sugar, and resinous hop mix comprise of the scent. It looks murky brown with a small khaki head on top. Sweet and sticky caramel malt upfront before drying out some in the finish. Low-moderate bitterness accompanied by mostly resinous hop flavors. A fairly straightforward resin-caramel combo here with a syrupy and fairly heavy body. Just okay.

Bottle pour. Amazing juniper tones! I love the mild, dank, carmel malts that overide this hop bomb! What a delight!

I’m glad to see a nice local IPA. This beer has a nice hop profile which comes out in the aroma first and follows through to the flavor. The IBU’s mask the 9% alcohol really well.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft to taster. Looks solid; a transparent malty orange with foamy off-white head. Smells solid; not as hoppy as I’d hoped it would though. It has a medium-bodied pale malt backbone. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Too much malt and not enough hops.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Poured clear copper color with a large frothy white head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Medium to heavy complex hop and alcohol aroma. Medium to abundant body with slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy smooth bitter flavor with a medium to heavy bitter finish of moderate to long duration. This is a solid beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A little too malty for my liking. Poured amber. Hops were too hidden for a DIPA. A little disappointed.
