I love what Free Will has been putting out, but this does not impress. Entirely too malt heavy with faint hoppiness. Don’t get me wrong, there is bitterness, but nothing distinct.

Intensely complex is right. So many dimensions to this one...I don’t know where to go first. Primarily, it is hoppy. Earthy, fruity, maybe slightly toasted. No. It is definitely burnt. Love that. A subtle chocolate/toffee touch takes this beaut to another level. A certain caramel sweetness gives it good balance.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle from Spirits Rt 166. Poured an unimpressive dirty orange brown body under a smaller foamy light beige head. Aroma is sweet wort, caramel, toffee, raisins, breads, very light citrus. Medeium body, chalky, lingering aftertaste, nice carbonation. Flavor is better than the aroma. Notes of dirty citrus, lemony, tropical fruit rinds, some rotting fruit, bad bread.

Malty IPA. No way a DIPA, fresh bottle. Malty yes, peachy coloured body, even a little peachy fruit taste. Yet no that interesting or tasty. Drying.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured dark and cloudy amber with a nice off white head, nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is mostly caramel and citrus fruits. Taste is maybe a bit too malty and sweet for an DIPA but there is a decent amount of hops trying to balance it . Nice beer, enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce bottle received in a trade from jdb288. This is well hazed and apricot in color. a nice big beige head falls slowly leaving nice lacing. Pine and citrus hop aromas with rich malts. First sip is pine and a big malt presence. Fruity with pine needles. Some brightness in the hops with a late arriving bitterness. As well as big pine flavors this has some tropical fruit notes and apricot. The finish was divided evenly between that pine and fruit. Looking at a few of the ratings I am surprised at how low they are. In all due respect I think this is a better beer than others do.

Bottle pours dark amber with nice frothy tan head. Aroma of sweet bread, light citrus, and pine. Flavors of breaded malts, yellow grapefruit, and pine with a huge hop finish. This one will have licking and puckering your lips and you will want to go back for more.
