4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a deep orange color, rather uncharacteristic of IPAs i’ve tried, with a decent lacy off-white head. Smells of hops primarily with a litlte spice. Has the aggressive bitter hops taste that characterizes IPAs but has enough malt to temper it so that it tastes excellent. You can taste hints of citrus in it as well. One of the best IPAs I’ve had.

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours hazy light brown with finger of tan head that hangs around. Aroma is a balance of floral hop and earthy malt belying what’s to come. Flavor packs a punch of bitter citrus rind mid-sip, and finishes with some lingering bitter. While the alcohol is masked in flavor it makes its presence obvious in the brain!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dark honey color with very soft yet attractive aroma filled with hops, hops, and more hops! So very, very smooth for such an unapologetic full flavored brew. Goes down smooth without any strong aftertaste. Absolutely wonderful on the palate. I think I found a beer I’ll always look for on the menu. A RaiderHead finally found something about Denver he likes.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
From Beergium. In Teku glass. Watching Los Soprano 2x07. Deliciously sweet, with some between orange and pineapple that feels very refreshing. Dangerously drinkable. ABV very hidden

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Great Divide. Hazy orange-amber with a fine, thick head. Big piny, juicy, resinous nose, caramel, orange. Sweet and a bit syrupy, lots o’ pine. A nice, old-school W-IPA. A bit anachronistic, but still good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This was poured into a tulip.
The appearance was a semi-dark hazy brown color with a thin white semi-foamy head that dissipated at a nice pace. Light messy lacing
The aroma starts off with some glazed orange/citrus peel/rind bitter to sweet hops with some piney bitterness. Caramel malt balances in a sweet malty way.
The flavor takes the sweetness of the hops to the sweetness of the malts to enunciate a low riding overall sweetness. Light tobacco smooths into the aftertaste and finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a slidingly smooth sipping quality to it. Carbonation runs fairly light.
Overall, old school styled DIPA that alleviates the pain of wanting it to be modernized. So, it’s built to last malty body helps it make it the sipper that it is.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
33cl bottle. The beer is clear with beautiful copper/red color and a medium, creamy head. Aroma of the beer is very sweet with resinous and strong fruity syrup notes. Also some fruity jelly with alcohol. Mouth feel is thick and creamy with delicate carbonation. Which is nice. Flavor is sweet, almost cloying sweet like a barley wine. But there is a lot of hop burn and resinous/fruity character ending with medium bitterness. Like I said the hop burn and medium bitterness makes is a quite balanced and delicious. Overall a very nice beer but heavy.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
A very strong taste of pines and hops. Some floral notes along with toffee, alcohol punching through, but not too much. IPA full of character, for sure!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Kuparinvärinen, kohtalaisesti luonnonvalkoista vaahtoa tuottava olut jättää myös kevyesti pitsiä. Tuoksussa yllättävän runsaasti toffeeta, pihkaisuutta ja mäntyisyyttä. Maku makean toffeinen, havuinen ja greippinen. Pitkä katkeran greippinen ja havuinen jälkimaku. Melko täyteläinen suutuntuma, alkoholi on hyvin piilossa. Aika yksipuolisen havuinen ja makean toffeinen kokonaisuus tämä tuntuu olevan ja eksoottinen hedelmäisyys loistaa poissaolollaan.
