4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
The color is a slightly hazy orange with a medium off-white head, and the aroma blends citrus and floral hops with light malts. The taste is quite bitter, slightly sour, and a touch sweet; the palate fuses a thick texture, bitter finish, medium-full body, and an average carbonation.

Tangerine nose, warm triple sec notes, juicy. Hazy orange, thick yellow head. Tastes as it smells, but much hotter. Orange is present. Alcohol is quite evident. Medium body not over the top with the bitterness.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Single bottle from W&M Mansfield. Poured into a snifter. Rested for a while and warming. Aroma of booze and sweet burnt rubber. Flavor is of sweet burnt rubber, spice and pine. More on the sweet side than I prefer for DIPAs. Quite drinkable and smooth though. Very filling toward the end.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a bright orange with a one finger off white head with nice lacing. Aroma is of citrus, pine, sweet malts, light tropical fruits, and some caramel malts. Taste is prett similar to the aroma with a lot of nice citrus, tropical fruits, and a nice sweet malt backbone. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, moderately bitter, medium-long finish. Overall, a tasty, suprisingly drinkable DIPA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle and I need to stop buying bottled IPA’s. IPA’s need to be draft or growler fill only. A bottle just doesn’t do them justice. Aroma is a mild floral, citrus and light pine hints.
Flavor is more sweet then I was hoping for. Strong amount of caramel and toffee malts, borderline sticky texture on the mouth with a medium in body leaning on fuller. The ABV is nicely hidden. Now as far as hop profile, it’s decent but the sweetness takes over. Citrus, grass and light pine with a light/ mild lingering bitterness after the sip. The only thing that come to mind is.... Well, mild. Very drinkable IPA that I’m sure would score higher on draft.

first whiff is backed up drain, then resin, caramel, distant pickle. lightly hazed golden amber with modest off white head. Woody flavor with a little citrus, slight metallic thread & yes that swampiness. Works well in the mouth
