3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Somewhere between amber and gold in color with a thin white head. Aroma is floral with a touch of pine. Flavor is bright pine hops that finishes a bit sweet. It could have a little more malt to balance it out, aftertaste is a touch astringent. Still pretty tasty though.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
At the Goose Island Brewing in ORD. This was an excellent DIPA. 9% was hidden well. Hop bitterness was significant but didn’t linger after the finish. Plenty of citrus and tropical fruit flavors and aroma. Overall, could be my nightcap on a regular basis.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Honey like sweetness in the aroma with only a hint of hops and some wheat. Great looking dark orange color with a permanent white ring of foam. Taste is sweet up front, followed by big grapefruit rind flavored hops. Aftertaste is just the right amount of bitter. Palate is slick with subdued carbonation. I really enjoyed this one. Will definitely buy again.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Big citrus flavors of grapefruit dominate and grassy hops lingers. Dry and a bit thin, but the alcohol is covered well and it’s refreshing enough. Pretty straightforward overall.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured hazy, orange in color, with about a finger of off-white foamy head that left spotty lacing all over the glass. Aroma of citrus fruit (lots of it), caramel and grain. Taste is sweet and malty but balanced with citrus notes; quite dry. Very enjoyable; not bad at all.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not good. Just big and way too sweet and boozy. Not balanced at all. Wasted $12 on a four pack. Should've known better than to trust anything from Bud.
