3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle thanks to a trade. Pours a clear amber gold with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of of resin with some grapefruit and a hint of underlying flora. Flavor starts with a touch of flora and grapefruit and has a growing resin note through the finish.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle. Filtered looking orange-tan. Frothy head fades away after awhile, but some foam remains on the edges. Relatively mild aroma, some melon, grapefruit. Really fresh, really well balanced. Doesn’t really wreck my palate, this is a pretty drinkable, refreshing IIPA. Certainly has lots of hop character, but it is cool, crisp, tropical melon tinged..not resinous and piny overload like the IIPAs of yesteryear. Really solid offering.

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.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
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
