3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Bottle) Clear orange body, small-medium off-white head. Strong orange/grapefruit citrus aroma with floral tones, a bit peppery. Medium bodied, soft, foamy. Sweet caramel, fruity-floral flavor but with a sharp hop bitterness on top that picks up on the way back. Alcohol is noticeable but not doesn’t taste like 9.5 percent. Very bitter finish; some resin.

Bitter finish, but certainly a smooth drinker. Briney piney nose, clear orange pour with plenty of foam. Super dry in the end, light citrus, hanging bitter, but light body.

Bottle at home. Pours golden amber, does what it says on the tin, incredibly bitter, fruity, dry.

Perhaps my tastebuds were a little off but this seemed to be a more balanced version of their West Coast IPA. Balanced of course is open to interpretation. Good beer.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is heavy pine hops and honey malt sweetness. No detectable booze for 9.5 ABV. Great aroma, not complex but strong, sweet and hoppy at the same time. Brilliant light crimson color with a white clingy head. Sweet malt backbone up front in the taste, followed by intense pine hop bitterness, which I expected. The hop bitterness lasts well into the aftertaste before turning back into sweetness. Great palate for the style; slick and substantial, not at all watery. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but this may be too hoppy even for me. More hoppy than Stone Ruination. Overall I like it, glad I tried it, but wish I was able to get 1 bottle rather than a 4 pack. From now on, this will be on the hoppy end of the spectrum when I am comparing IPA’s to one another.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle. Bright copper pour with a nice white head. Aroma is balanced with a lean toward the bitter hops. Very well balanced flavors and smooth body and finish. Good, but nothing really stands out.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle, best by June 12, 2015.
Hazy amber, thin beige head, sticky lace.
Aroma is all hops. Dank, earthy, citrus, maybe a bit of caramel malts, but mostly all hops.
Flavor is similar. All hops. Citrus, pine, earth, resin. Some sweet orange tries to keep the bitter in check, but mostly hop bomb. Good, but I prefer a more balanced DIPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from the store. Aroma is a refined grassy, lemon combo. Pour is brilliantly clear with a small white head. Reddish orange in color. The hops really shine in the flavor. A moderate and firm hop bitterness with a supporting malt back bone. Not out of balance. Taste is like orange jelly with a piney, pithy note to it, all in a good balance. No alcohol noted. Overall a very good DIPA.
