Bottle at Uno’s in Neshaminy. Remember very little, except that the alcohol is more noticeable than the commercial deScription suggests.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pint from The Lackman in Cincinnati. Pours a cloudy deep orange color with a small off-white ring. Tons of fruit in this- grapefruit, orange, melon, pineapple- with caramel malts, pine resin, and some floral notes. Medium-bodied, with a chewy, fruity mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Big DIPA. Too much for my brother. I liked it.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I’ve slated biscuit malt in the past but this one showed me how its used right as a backdrop for hoppy assertiveness which comes in the form of two of my favorite hops. But, I swear the hop quotient is more IPA than DIPA and the malts deliver the high abv. This one has a slightly tea-like finish to it which kind of dampers the exuberance. Picked this up at Chips in OBX.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz poured into a pint glass. Pour is a clear amber color with a bisquit colored head. Aromas are subtle for such a big beer, but there are definite malty notes and some hoppiness on the nose. Taste is a very malt forward DIPA with some bitterness, but mostly boozy and malt is what I get. The hops could be more forward to bitter the finish. Not much of a finish, quite abrupt. Overall and OK DIPA, but many better ones are out there.
