4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Cloudy reddish brown pour with a pale matching head. Nice lacing. Sweet malty aroma. Hope was more noticeable as it warmed. Taste is sweet, not nearly the bitterness I expected. Very smooth considering the ABV. This is the first IPA that was as thick and chewy as the best stouts. Overall, this is an outstanding brew, a bit pricey, but a good one time buy.

Bottle. Pours a red amber color with a fine, off-white, one inch head. Smells of sweet malts, caramel malt, some alcohol. Tastes similar. Sweet. Caramel malts, some fruit, scant alcohol. Medium+ to full bodied, a touch syrupy, average carbonation. A medium bitterness builds in the finish, accompanying the sweet malty taste that lingers.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Copper golden colored, foamy tan head. Hoppy aroma of course with notes of nut and spices. Sharp but still balanced. Fruity notes also and hints of chocolate. Extremely hoppy flavor. Thick, full and warming and extremely bitter and biding. Nutty, spicy and caramelly tones hiding behind the bitterness

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Amber pour with flecks of red, semi-creamy ecru head and layers of lacing. Big, full-bodied mouth feel, almost syrupy. It has some heat/booziness from the high ABV. Sweet malt backbone and bitter hop presence. Citrus, resin, caramel in nose and flavor. It’s a fricken huge beer, not for the faint of heart.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Look - Burn orange almost red color. Very appetizing. Medium tan head with medium sized bubbles. No retention.
Smell - Alcohol. Malt. Bread. Dank. Spicy.
Taste - Alcohol and grapefruit/fruits up front. Caramel. Smell translates to taste. Almost a triple to taste.
Feel - Creamy/syrupy but light bodied? Doesn’t explode with carbonation.
Overall - It reminds me of Double Crooked Tree. I tried it as soon as soon as it arrived in Columbus.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nose is heavy on the booze, some pine. Flavor is some candied pineapple, dried apricot, grapefruit rind, burnt sugar, more pine, heavy booze. Eh just kind of dumb and unrefined.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Intense. Taste of explosive malts and hops attack your palate aggressively. Very long bitterness. Not my kind of booze but drinkable.
