1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Probably my least favorite well-regarded DIPA in the world. Nose of chemical pine cleaner, hints of sweet maltiness. Taste follows in kind with a strange sharp note of berries, but I cannot really wrap my head around what it is that makes this beer so off-putting to me. It just is. I hadn’t tried it in years and thought maybe I was just imagining my dislike back in ye olden days, but I still just cannot abide this beer at all.

Tap at Yard House. Medium amber, slight haze. Nice head. Fairly intense citrus and other fruit, floral aroma. Light toasty malts, nice balance, hop heaven. Nice strong bitter finish, not overwhelming. Refreshing. Delicious.

Bottle as a birthday gift from Pix. Cheers! Pours amber with a nice big frothy cream head. Nice hoppy aroma with pineapple especially. The taste is big as bitter with stacks resinous pine, caramel and toffee. A little aniseed too. Delicious.

Man it’s been a historic day in the history of beer. This one is a notch below the other two we’ve sampled, but it’s awfully good on its own merits. The only knock is the extraordinarily bitter finish.

Clear deep Amber with an minimal tan head. Bubblegum, honey, light resin. Slightly bitter, good amount of sweetness. Alcohol is quite upfront, long oily finish. Great.

A bit spicy, some piney. Mouth has plenty of bitter and some odd sweet. This bottle must have been a tad too old. Regardless, I would drink again, but not seek out.
