3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Clear, golden, medium head and good lace. The nose is a little reductive or dank. Maybe too much pine for me. Very rich palate. Dry to off fry. Not sour and very bitter. Dense and long. Loads of hops and malt.
Lacks polish and style.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at The Happy Gnome with commonshawn although let the record show he had stopped drinking. Appearance is a dark orange with golden elements. Quarter finger head. Hoppy aroma with citrus and/or tropical fruit characteristics. Taste is citrus forward with a decent dose of hops. Approachable. Slight sweetness with a good effort put forth to hide the alcohol. Bitterness at the end but overall a pretty well balanced beer. Nothing stands out but I like it in general.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber into snifter glass, clear golden-amber color with white head. Aroma notes of earthy/pine hops, grass, lightly floral and caramel malt sweetness. Taste adds resin, some grapefruit, light spices and herbal hop bitterness. Medium-heavy body, low-moderate carbonation, dry, creamy with lingering earthy/pine bitterness. Very pine heavy DIPA, unsure of age due to poor "best by" labeling. If this is older I would love to try one fresh!

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Ambar brillante, anaranjado con un dedo de espuma. Aroma espléndido de vainilla, caramelo, pino y frutas tropicales. Sabor espectacular, con explosión de lúpulos: cítricos al principio, mango, flores, pino. Debajo un sólido esqueleto de malta (caramelo y vainilla) que proporcionan una base de dulzor para (intentar) compensar los intensos lúpulos. Cremosa en boca, suave con carbonatación media. Complejidad y balance casi perfectos.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slight floral, citrus aromas. Golden amber with white head that dissipates quickly. Solid bitterness balanced well with malt sweetness. Slight alcohol notes. Mostly resin and pine in the taste. Ok overall. Far better examples out there.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear gold with some foam. Traditional IPA nose - floral, citrus. Taste is heavy on the hops up front - no fooling around. There is a touch of grapefruit and then...bam - the bitterness kicks in. It's good - would like a little more balance between citrus and hops.
