4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a nice bright amber color with a tight frothy head that leaves a thin tight film and some lacing. Aroma is kind of dank resin pine mango citrus and a soft balance of caramel malt. Taste is bitter citrus resin pine hops soft spice bite and well balanced malt. Palate is full kind of creamy and finishes with a nice spice bite and warm feeling in the end. I like!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I expected more from this beer given the style and hop varieties that were used. Citrus aroma with light pine, nice appearance. Citrus flavor with pine, white wine, and a good malty backbone. Quite bitter on the finish. Probably the best I have had from Fulton, but in comparison with other DIPAs left me wanting something more.

12oz bottle into tulip. Minneapolis.
Pours amber/copper in color. Generous offwhite head with excellent retention and lacing.
Aroma is citrus, and floral. Grapefruit, Orange peel, a lot of the usual suspects.
Flavor is malty and sweet upfront, transitioning into a bitter finish.
Mouthfeel is full for the style. Fair texture. Average carbonation. Medium length finish.
Generally an enjoyable double ipa. Superior taste and appearance.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap pour into tulip glass at Nomad with commonshawn. Coppery color with a full finger of froth that clings well to the glass. Little bit of hop on the nose but with a funky aspect going on. Very cloying mouthfeel. Taste has some burnt sugar elements mixing with a hop heavy presence. Grapefruit rinds. Not as sweet overall as other double IPAs. Aftertaste leaves a little to be desired. I would sample again but I do feel slightly disappointed this didn’t impress more.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at nomad in tulip with commonmac. Copper with thick white head and good lacing. 1.5 finger head. Off Hop heavy aroma. Super hoppy and drying cloying throughout. Big tastes, but dominated by hop and pine alcohol. Not as sweet as most dipas. Bitter Grapefruit rind. Wanted some more subtlety and balance. My tongue and taste buds were definitely taken over by this one .

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
My first sniff, I thought it smelled like natural gas, but a second whiff confirmed it was much more cat pee-ish (which isn’t going to grab a lot of non-IPA’ers, but is really telling). This is a really good imperial/double IPA, with a big combo of mingled tropical fruit and bitter hop flavors. Pours a clear copper, with little by way of head, but what a feast of flavors. Well-balanced with the malt so it’s not too sweet, not too bitter. Easily the standout beer I’ve tried from Fulton. Will definitely need to get some more.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From bottle. Pours a clear orange/copper hue with an off-white head with ale great lacing. Wonderful aroma of grapefruit and tropical fruit, caramel, pine. Taste of tropical fruit, grapefruit, piney, dank, blueberry, white grape juice, bitter and malt backbone sneaks in the there really well. Medium mouthfeel with light to medium carbonation. Finishes dank, dry and bitter kick with some heat but not on the tongue but on the palate more so. I really like this one and would like it even if the bitterness on the finishes was mellowed down a bit. Probably my favorite beer from Fulton. Nice work Johnnies!
