From a 22 oz bottle shared at home. Pours a clear copper with a thick off white head. Fruity hop nose. Flavors of citrus with some caramel notes. Bitter, but not over the top. Pleasant DIPA.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bomber. Faint, sweet nose. Poured burnt orange with creamy off white head. Sheets of lace. Flavor is sweet malt, caramel, a touch earthy that finished bitter with a burst of grapefruit rinds. Medium bodied, a little chewy but smooth. Definitely not a fresh bottle but this has aged nicely.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bottle shared with Ian. Pours a light gold, with a medium, bubbly, off-white head. The aroma is caramel, light floral notes, and a lot of melon and citrus notes. Flavor is very sweet up front, but with a significant bitterness through the finish. Light to medium body, acidic, syrupy, and sticky. Overall, this is a very sweet and aromatic IIPA.

Decent double IPA. Floral aromas. A little too malty for my liking. Good citrusy hop flavors.

On tap at the Mellow Mushroom in Gatlinburg. Tulip glass. A very hoppy beer. Nice finish. First taste really shocks the pallet with all those IBUs, but it has a nice smooth finish, and nice aroma. For a strong beer, it is easy to drink.

Bottle. Cloudy honey orange color. Aroma is light citra, floral, marmalade. Taste is unexpectedly sweet. The hops are there, but overwhelmed by sweet malts. Bitter? Hardly. 126 IBUís? Maybe 26. Itís good, but needs more hops flavor. Oh, and itís very smooth. Donít forget itís 9.4%!

Bottle from Jay with Willi. Pours a hazy gold with a nice lingering off white foam. Smells resinous of citrus caramel and sweet barley. Tastes sweet with alcohol, citrus and a hint of nuttiness.
