3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 ounce bottle from Johns. Pours a deep copper color with a medium white head. A big fruity nose, oranges and candy. The flavor is really big, more like a IIPA in terms of being super sweet, candied oranges, some zest, orange peel, bitterness. Quite good.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Standard visuals, golden amber with a medium, creamy head. The aroma is over-the-top perfumey, with an almost off-putting floral sting. The beer drinks with an average mouthfeel, neither thin nor as heavily bodied as some DIPAs. That same odd sense of spring pollen is evident in the taste, particularly in the too-mushy finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampler pour on tap at the Clybourn brewpub (Chicago, IL). Big props for Adan helping me out with an extended sampler. Pours a darker golden orange hue, mellow haziness starts to clear out. A frothy whitish head dies to a mellow filmy layer, loose lacing overall as it rings thicker. Aromas present a firm earthy hop influence, lots of florals and grass meet a gentle citrus twist, more resiny and piney influence assaults. Firm but earthy, understated fruit qualities for me, just a touch of citrus. Mellow bready malts are clean, but do show up a touch. Initial is a considerably different offering, showing medium firm fruit presence. Grapefruit and some gentle tropical fruit, gumball/wad element is a bit presence, touch sweet. Florals, citrus rind, and some gentle girthiness. Bigger more potent and complex hop presence offered. Middle shows a touch of body, fruity and crystal malt sweetness, bready and biscuity but still a firm hop presence holds the reigns. Backend is more dry as we start to head on out. Florals, a but of fruit and decent citrus presence tapers. Finish is dry, bitter, a bit of girth in body still hangs around. Soap, florals, firmly bitter finish. Solid, pretty fresh. The nose really didn’t present everything that was in there for me. Pretty solid DIPA though once you get into it. Perhaps a touch sweet at times, but good enough. Not a standout or anything

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tallahassee, Fl - New Leaf Market - 12 oz bottle. Bright, sparkling light copper pour, sticky snow white head, nice lacing. Aroma has some cat urine essence, very resiny and warming. Flavor is full-bodied and delicious with heavy doses of maple syrup sweetness, some mango fruitiness, just the right amount of citrus bitterness. Chewy, sticky mouthfeel. An enjoyable diversion.

Draft to taster. Looks solid; a transparent copperish orange with foamy off-white head. Smells solid too; a balanced hop profile with a semi-sweet pale malt backbone. Tastes like it smells with a nice, light mouthfeel. Good beer.
