4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Can. Colour...cloudy deep gold with a thick white head. Nose...massively piney hops but with some mango and pineapple mixed in. Palate...thick, chewy and biting with big time hop resin! This is a big one! There’s heavy duty hops all over the place and intense bitterness along with a big malty backbone. The finish is long and rather boozy.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 from the COOP for about $9... Seems a little pricey, but it will be even more expensive at the other bottle shops around Boise. Pours a lightly hazed orange with a nice long lasting white head... foamy with good lacing. Heavier malt than I like for a DIPA, but the ABV is up to 9.9%, so I guess there is some leeway granted. Bright citrus hoppiness seems like navel orange or clementine zest.. The palate has more of a modern tropical fruity/pineapple hoppiness... Still it is pretty sweet/malty, I would like it to be significantly drier and allow the hops to be a bit more brash.

Bottle from Brewers Haven. Pours out orange amber, with minimal beige head. Normal IPA aroma, taste within range, warmth comes in very late. Hides ABV well. Tasty, not overpowering, pretty good for a big beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Warm peach tan coloring, ok head. Strong citrusy nose with a bit of hair on it, ruffles the olfatory senses. There are small doses of skunky orange. Quite a strong brew. Orange and green bitterness dominate, but no real off-flavors. Tastes fairly high octane.
