4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Medium sized tan head with fair retention and lacy lacing. Hazy, copper appearance. big nose, juicy, floral, lil burnt wiring, earthy and citrusy with some resiny notes. Body is med/full, nice carboantion, oily and slightly raw. Well blanced with large amounts of citrusy and piney hops with a faintly sweet but biscuity malt backing and a lil hubba bubba too! Finish is juicy and long with a milder than expected bite. ABV be damned! Ya cant tell its over 9! Nice. Bottle from statelineliquors.

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Grassy floral light pine aroma.
Hazy orange, creamy offwhite head
Very perfumed hoppy flavor, pine, lime. Extremely sticky oily resin clinging to the palate. Not enjoying this very much, terribly unbalanced, why not just drink hop extract directly?

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the Mad Taco. Pours clear deep amber with minimal white head that fades quickly to trace. HUGE and complex hops layered with caramel aroma. Flavor a sharp bitter/salt/sweet with caramel in the back. Tapers evenly to a sharp bitter finish. Overall I love big complex beers and big hops and this does nicely.

Fair citrus nose. Slight haze. Taste like grass. Not real pleasant. Carbonation ok. Just not good for me.

The hop blast takes you back to the first time you tried an ipa. Orange, pine, and grapefruit dominate and linger for long time. It is crisp, dry, and articulate. Many brewers tack on the "must try for hopheads" line to whatever their ipa is, but as one of the most jaded hophead’s out there I would only say three beers are truly ’must tries’ 1. Devil Dancer 2. Hog Heaven 3. Palate Wrecker

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Mostly malt sweetness in the aroma, some bread and a hint of citrus. Nice looking cloudy amber, quite appealing. The flavor has a malt beginning but gives way to a hop bitter finish. Dry and tasty, no alcohol to mention. Good one.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a delicious looking orange/amber colour with an off white rocky head that sticks to the edge of the glass.
Aroma is quite in your face with big hoppy pine, pepper and resin along with citrus and pineapple. Just a touch sweet smelling. Smells delicious.
Taste is quite sweet with a big malt backbone holding up to the hops, then comes the bitterness with a burst of citrus zest and resin. Some pineapple, orange, and maybe apricot?
Mouthfeel is quite chewy with moderate to high carbonation. Finish is quite bitter and dry and lingers on and on.
Not a beer for everyone but it is certainly one of the best DIPAs i have had

4.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Fantastically hippy but still balanced bitter and sweet worth every penny. It has a sneaky 9.5% abv.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bomber in a snifter. Pour is dark bet with a 2 finger cream head. Nose is beautiful with notes of pine, pineapple and juniper. Taste is hoppy as can be. Good bitterness that bites the tongue. There is some malt balance but the overwhelming notes are floral bitterness Mouthfeel is medium and not overly carbonated.
