3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Goblet at the brewery. Aroma is citrus, pine, caramel. Light amber color clear with white head. Taste: A lot of caramel malty sweetness, floral hop bitterness that isnít too big but not too small. Pretty well-balanced. Lingering bitter finish on the tongue. Med/full body. Lively carbonation; smooth, creamy mouthfeel. Overall: Surprisingly smooth, easy-drinking considering the style/ABV.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle- Pours hazy orange with a two finger bone white head. Aroma is citrusy, a little earthy, grassy. The taste is citrusy, resinous, very hop forward without being too bitter, fairly easy drinking. Body is medium and carbonation is also medium. I think a fresher bottle would warrant a better score, but this is in date, less than three months old, but i prefer my IPAís less than two months old, i am definitely obsessed with dates when it comes to this style, still not bad for a free beer!

Tap at Ballard Beer Company, Seattle. Pours a hazy gold with a white head. Light piss, tangerine, light caramel, light pine. Medium body, medium carbonation. Caramel, tangerine, pine, grapefruit, toast, light marmalade... Nicely balance, a light sticky sweetness but not too much. Good.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Well, Iíve had this one draft before and was very happy with it. This seems like a different beer. Pours a mildly hazed apricot colored ale with a solid creamy top and lace that is just outright tacky. Smells dank, with mostly lots of vienna character, some tea, a little bit of resin - fairly pedestrian. Flavor is bitter with sweet alcohol, plenty malt, and little resin - this must be over the hill (too bad it canít hold up for 9 weeks. Medium bodied with moderately high carb and a semi dry finish. I am disappoint.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy golden amber color, dense frothy white head. Light citrus, heavier pine, grass, caramel malt, and some herbal undertones. Bitter and maltier than it should be. Soft carb, medium bodied, and resinous. Some booziness in the finish.

Can straight to the dome. Road beer! Huge hoppy aroma - grapefruits, lemons, biscuit, light caramel, light grass, and weed. Taste is big sticky grapefruit skins and oranges, light resin, bread, caramel malt, lemons, and grass with a big bitter finish. Medium body with crisp carbonation. Solid DIPA.

Can sampled at Ryanís July tasting for Vinnyís departure. Aroma is soft citrus fruits, spicy yeast and malt. Brightly carbonated with notes of floral hop, malt, yeast, spice and light papery character.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2014 Sampler at brewery. Slick dark golden color. Looks solid, highly, as if lightly carbonated. Long story short the beer is a hybrid of what I would live and not so much. Lots of juicy sweet tropical fruit hops, just as I want and I like. But then an acrid resinous green hop character at both the end of nose and flavor. Really fucks with my buds. Lovely, my type of hoppy beer but then what I donít like. Slightly thicker slicker feel, understandable for strength. A beer meant for me is hidden in here. Otherwise, becomes a meh beer.

Brilliant DIPA in a can. Wish we could get this down here in Cali. Super on the tropical bit, while retaining sweet and bitter balance in almost perfection. Total hop candy.
