3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Mohawk Bend, pours a cloudy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of floral hops galore, grass and some biscuity malts. Flavour brings out loads of floral hops, like a meadow, lots of grass, and some biscuity malts. Good stuff, but overrated.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle [from Secret Santa 2014 edition thanks to beerandblues2] @ home. Clear orange golden color, full sized white to off-white head that lasts for a long time. Aroma is malts, hops, slightly sweetish floral. Taste malts, hops, resin and pine suddenly kick in which was what I was waiting for and itís finished with good firm bitterness that absolutely suits the beer perfectly. Good firm bitter finish. Pretty good DIPA.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Total Wine in Folsom, CA. Pours golden amber with a foamy whitish head. Aroma is primarily resin. Some floral. Med body, maybe better. Starts rather floral and tropical. Moves on to something suggesting raisin. Moves back towards tropical/resin. Itís pretty hoppy, and fairly bitter. Very unusual (to me) hop profile. A little woody? Keeps changing. Nice drink.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2014 Bottle pour (Līgo Ziema 2014, Riga)
"Triple IPA"? Sorry, guys, I have to break it to you, your penises really are just a bit too short, and thereís nothing that you can brew that will change that, so stop trying to compensate. Mid gold. Sweet hoppy mess. Unbalanced. Classic American WTF.
Stanky aroma, stanky taste. Boozy body. Stanky finish. What a freaking mess. No thanks, didnít need the top-up.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy citrus and spruce aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy complex bittersweet flavor with a moderate to heavy complex bittersweet finish of medium to long duration. This is a solid beer that surpassed my expectations.
