3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Found at Kenwood Homer Glen with a $3.50 Sale tag. Okay, why not. Slight bit of skunk right under the cap, changing to a hoppy smell as foam peeks over the edge. Kicks up a lot of foam, even refrigerated. Smell is mostly citrusy with some pine, maybe a tropical fruit kick of Nelson Sauvin. Still plenty of foam in my IPA tulip. Looks cloudy and orangey under that big head, which settles down into some kind of fire extinguisher foam. Taste is back to strong malt and citrus, with a backbone of mucho hop bitterness. Kind of nice in a hophead sense, but way overly bitter. I feel like there’s no reward for finishing this.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Resin, pine, grapefruit peel, dank. Golden amber with white head. Very drinkable with resinous bitterness upfront and piney aftertaste mixed with alcohol. Ok.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A nice IPA. Pours a cloudy orange with a white head. Smells of hops, citrus, pine and blueberry. More blueberry in the taste, along with breadiness, a nice but not intense background of hops. Paired with bourbon buffalo burgers, brings out the hops. Had in the bottle.

Bottle. Musky. Dirty copper tone with an average top. This has a distinctly spicy character, very meaty. Has a much more continental hop character than one might expect from a California IIPA. (#6037, 9/24/2015)

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - hazy gold with sparse white head. Hoppy, resinous, juicy aroma. Similar in the taste, orange, grapefruit, resin, tropical fruit. Medium body, oily-ish mouthfeel, moderate carbonation. Long bitter finish. Good stuff.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle. Hazy burnt orange, dense off white head, sticky lace.
Aroma is all hops, dank, floral, tropical.
Flavor is much like the aroma, all hops. Pine, floral, grapefruit. A little malt sweetness mid-palate tries to keep it balanced, but it’s mostly one sided. Body is a little thin.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Crazy hoppy beer. Orange clear pour from bottle at home. White head. Ripe tropical fruit flavor. Vanilla, orange, grapefruit, pine, and just a huge taste to it. Good.

Earl of Essex. Keg. Mild haze on this gold beer, small pale cream colour head. Smooth palate, mild fine carbonation. Quite thin for the abv. Semi dry malts, some bitterish floralness. Tangy dried fruits. Light semi dry finish. For a DIPA this is pretty non descript, no thrust to what little hop there is. No off flavours though.

500ml bottle, pours golden brown with a white head. Nice hoppy aroma, piney and citrus, grapefruit and, most prominent, lemon with peppery spiciness. Light to medium body, texture is resiny and oily, with soft but lasting carbonation. Finish is bitter.
