4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
This monster pours a amber color with a finger sized head. Lacing is everywhere on this one. Not a section of my glass didnít have some kind of lacing on it.
The smell was pretty damn nice. Very sweet malt aroma which I wasnít expecting. Grapefruit and citrus. Alcohol is very present and it just says that Iím not a beer to mess around with.
This is a very malt forward Double IPA. I thought it was a good mixture of a East Coast and West Coast Double IPA. While the malt is pretty big in the taste, the hops come through big too. Itís a very fruit taste. Grapefruit, citrus, melon, and slight grassy. The only thing that might of gotten in the way slightly was the alcohol taste. While not overbearing, it was still a little to noticeable in my mind. If they somehow hid the alcohol just a little bit more this would be just killer.
The mouthfeel was thick, nicely carbonated, oily, and juicy. Itís so hoppy at times I felt the same way I did with Pliny the Younger. Felt like the enamel was coming off your teeth.

Meh...Description begs for something more bitter and hoppy but is more on the malty sweet side. Wasnít impressed with this offering. You can taste the alcohol also. Would not buy again.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Reddish, golden pour with moderately dense white head. Rich (malty) and piney nose. Moderately bitter with biscuit at the outset and malt at the end. Malty, slippery mouthfeel with moderate fizziness. The finish has some bitterness, but tends toward the malty. The description led me to expect something much stronger in flavor with more prominent bitterness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Strong, but not overpowering. Pine and resin, grapefruit and hops. There is some floral note, plus a light bitterness, but the finish is long and rolling. Pretty good.

On tap @ 3 Cellars, Franklin, Wisconsin. High alcohol content is undetected. Pineapple, koogin, and a bit of pine. Some grapefruit in the backdrop. A lovely pour. Very nice!

bottle. hazy orange. sweet overripe peach aroma. flavor has notes of stonefruits and pineapple with some residual honey, grainy, malt sweetness. somewhat low bitterness with deeper hop flavor. doesnít strike me as 9.1%. an enjoyable beer thats different from the typical dry west coast version.
