3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Grumpy Troll. Unfiltered orange-brown. Half a beer dumped down the drain to get a pint. Steady creamy off-white head. Pronounced orange-citrus aroma. Creamy, almost nitro feel after the pour. Oily, classic IIPA tones in lot of respects, just about ten years late for this one to be impressive. Quite a beastly, decent offering.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft sampled at a tasting event. From notes. Boozy with pine and citrus. Just a hint of tropical fruits too. Pretty good.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, thanks to Wrye! Rad DIPA tick! Pours a big orange/deep golden with small white head. Aroma is boozy dank pineapple and mango. Some orange peel. Taste is a little too faded hop with the boozy malt coming in to rest. Sweet and I can tell it was once, I suspect, really nice on the citrus and mango thing. Overall, rather boozy but likely an extra .5 or so when fresh.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On draught at the brewery. For the hop lover to be sure. Aroma of pine and grapefruit, pours a nice amber color with ample head that dissipates quickly. Fairly viscous mouth feel. Wearing on the palate, but a very nice offering.
