4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: APR 16, 2013 Nearly clear amber pour with a 2 finger, creamy, off white head that has great retention. Aroma has lots of ripe tropical fruit and sweet citrus, light caramel, cereal and toasty malt, more floral and generally fuity hops come in later. Flavor starts off fruity and bitter citrus, leads to some caramel, bicuit and toasty malt, passion fruit and mango heavy tropical fruit, a little melon, sweet orange blossom and some bitter grapefruit and lightly earthy, woody and pine hops. Medium body, with a neutral, to creamy entry, light, to moderate and somewhat blanketing carbonation and creamy, oily and off dry finish. Awesome, definitely the kind of IIPA I would love to drink case after case of.

Reddish/amber color with malty aroma. Creamy head that doesn’t last long, but nice Belgium lace. Honey/carmel sweet malt taste that lays on the palate with a bitter grapefruit taste at the end.

Darkish amber color. Aroma is malt, honey, alcohol. Taste is very close to the aroma, with the addition of some nice hops bitterness. A tiny bit too sweet for my tastes in a DIPA, but still an excellent example of the style. Reminds me a bit of Hopslam, but not quite in Hopslam’s league.

Pours reddish bronze with off-white head and some lacing. Aroma of earthy hops, tropical fruit, and honey. Taste is the same with strong bitterness. Too much honey in my humble opinion...otherwise a solid brew.

Array of hops in this beast of a 2XIPA. Pine, grapefruit, floral. Tantalizing nose that comes through with the flavor. Slick mouth feel. Yum!

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a foggy gold with a nice off white head that leaves a gorgeous lace. The aroma is floral and hoppy, with a nice caramel and almost bready lingerings. The flavors are pretty much the same, with a little more sweetness, which is apparent from the honey. The mouth feel is great. Light carbonation, wonderful consistency, and a great dry finish.

Nice copper colored ale with a light creamy sheet. Smells like BO, apricot, peaches, resin, some pine and sweet malts. Nice nose. Flavor is malt, some cracker, some tea and peach. Overall the taste is more malty than I enjoy in a DIPA, but has a herbal character that seems appealing. medium on full bodied with moderate carb and a wet finish. Overall the beer isn’t bad, but nothing special. In fact, I’d recommend this for somebody that really loves DFH beers, seems to fall in line with their style.

Amber with a creamy and rocky bone crown. Aroma is dank with grapefruit, citrus, mango, bready malt and caramel. Taste of floral and vineous hops, grapefruit, tropical fruits, mild resinous hops and caramel. Decent and a bit boozy with a high bitter finish
