3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle. Amber orange color with a small slightly off white head. Aroma of flowers, rich pine and strong citrus. Unsurprising, for a DIPA, but still nice. Flavor is strongly bitter. Strong pine and grapefruit notes. Nice, sure. Very bitter. Some pine, some lemon. Full bodied, heavier carbonation. This is nice, especially in the finish where it is quite bitter. Nice, finishes long a bitter.

12 ounce bottle pours an orange copper flavor with off-white head that dissipates quickly. Pine and citrus aroma not huge in the nose. Nice hop bitterness with a bit of malt to balance. A bit of an apricot flavor. Not bad but not great

Bottle. Clear orange to light amber pour with a small soapy white head. Aroma is bready malts, resin, light citrus. Fairly oily palate. Tastes slightly boozy, hops are well balanced by the malts. Lots of malt in this.

pisane z pamięci więc może być trochę niedokładne. zapach intensywny, chmiel, cytrusy, słodowe nuty. kolor ciemnego złota, lekko zmętnione. piana dość skąpa i nie za trwała. w smaku dużo ciała, ale i spora goryczka, ziołowo grapefruitowa. czuć nuty karmelowe.

This just didn’t work for me. Pours a fairly clear, light golden yellow, with smallish head. Aroma is very grassy and bready. Flavor also dominated by bready/biscuit and too sweet and boozey.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear old gold pour with a 1 finger creamy off white head. Aroma is loaded with Crystal malt, some caramel, citrus and a little spicy hops. Flavor is biscuit, caramel, a little toast and lots of sweet Crystal malt, a little earthy grain and some odd, hot booziness, maybe fusel alcohols, or phenols, maybe something else. Medium body with a slick, syrupy feel, light, sharp carbonation and dry, boozy and acidic finish. It’s not all bad, but it’s pretty strong in booziness and boozy off notes, the Crystal malts don’t help either.
