3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance was hazy orangish gold with rocky lasting off white 2 finger head, spotty lacing. Aromas are citrus fruits, sweet onion, pine, hints of danky hops with sweet crystal malt undertones. Taste was sweet toffee base with grapefruit, peach, lemon, sticky pine, no alcohol. Palate was soft creamy CO2 with medium-full body, sticky oily smooth lasting fruity piney finish. I wish I had this fresher, bet the fruits where brighter.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from CraftShack - received on 2/19/2014, bottle on 6/24/2013. Ridiculous! Last time I order an IPA from them.
I was very excited to try a Jamil commercially brewed beer after brewing many of his homebrew recipes. This was not a representative example. Iím giving this a 3.0 for now until I taste a fresh one. I know this is better than what Iím drinking right now.

Poured from bomber, picked up at the brewery yesterday. Somewhat clear golden with a medium white head. Nose is mostly citrus, not too strong, with a bit of caramel. Smooth well balanced taste, not as strong as some of my favorite doubles, but rather good. Medium bodied with a nice bitter finish.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2014 Bottle. Pours clear gold with white head. Aroma had a big centennial aroma herbal, grassy. Flavors are grassy, mint, green, bitterness is very clean, dry, some sweetness but really solid and well executed. Fermentation is flawless. You can really tell pliney inspired Jamil with this one.
