3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample (well, a quarter of my bro’s pint) at the Eastside location, July 27th. Also multiple pints at the Hillside location over the past three years. Clear, slightly oily medium to dark amber-gold body with a bit of lasting froth and some lacing on the sides...juicy, fruity nose - apricot, mango, perhaps just a bit of indistinct citrus, a touch sweaty...body is more sweet than bitter, and that carries all the way through; somewhat syrupy mouthfeel, sticky even as it warms. This was pretty good when cold (though the aroma opened up more as it warmed) but became a bit tough to drink when at cellar temp or above.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
2 dollar pint at One Barrel for the last day of Madison Beer Week 2013. Burgundy unfiltered amber body. Steady off-white head. Muted, sweet aroma. Big, malty, piny. Not really par for the course, but not sooo bad, taste like mid-range 90s beer. Not really enjoyable to drink. Big, rich, flowery. It sort of screams mediocre. OK...maybe.

Pours a dark cloudy orange with a bit of lacy head, Aroma is strong with hints of resin and citrus. Lots of strong hoppy notes. A great sweet but strong bitter taste. Definitiely has a bit of boozy notes as well. Long bitter finish lasts for long after the sip. Great beer

West coast my freaking ass. This is a sweet and syrupy DIPA that is good, but not great.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Growler courtesy of BDR! Didn’t get this open for about a month, so fair notice. Dark copper color with a medium head. Danky hop aroma, light citrus notes. Maybe caramel after warming. Moderate to strong bitterness with some dank hop flavor. A bit vegetal. Caramel and toasty/biscuity taste. Almost full bodied. Pretty tasty.
