3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Phil, thanks. Pours out an orange color with an offwhite head on it. Smell is very hoppy, full of pine and grapefruit and some slight hints of alcohol in it. Taste is smooth and hoppy and very easy to drink. Not sure if previous raters ended up with a bad bottle, but mine had no diacytel at all, and was really very drinkable. This stuff could give you a lethal hang over from being overly sweet though. Im glad I have some more of these around. Really good when its very cold.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Shared by Dickinsonbeer. Hazy amber/light brow in color with a small head. Aroma: citrus, floral, with alot of caramel malts and a light touch of alcohol. A touch of yeast also. Taste is alot of caramel, light to moderately boozy, with citrus and pine flavor and bitterness that does a decent job of balancing the caramel malt backbone. However, the hops are not in forefront, which is what I like in a IIPA. Taste also had some bready yeast. Finishes with lingering caramel sweetness, alcohol, and a moderate hop bitterness. Tasted more like a barleywine than an IIPA to me.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a golden orange from the bottle with thin ring of off-white lacy head. Aroma is bready grain up front, then a nice piney hop presence on the back end. Taste is more resinous, nice grapefruit and pine notes from the hops with a bittersweet caramel malt finish. Pretty decent, a lot better than the normal Kashmir.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from ucusty. Murky amber with a dense off white head. Sweet malt and orange nose, some earthy notes, a bit of pine, rather fruity. Very earthy flavor, a bit of pine in the back, caramel. Nose is far more interesting than the flavor, but still a nice beer. Borders in a barleywine.

Amber colored pour. Small white head. Plenty of lacing. Malty caramel aroma. Taste is the same, with a slight alcohol bite and a light bitter note. Not bad.

First rating for this beer! Poured at the Brewgrass Festival in Asheville. Pours a clear copper color, with a thick, foamy light tan head. looks pretty nice. Smells of big hops, with some definite malty characters surrounding it. Seems to be balanced so far. The taste is actually big on the malt flavors. Almost creamy, with the big hops making their presence known as well. Pretty complex and interesting. Not awesome, by any means, but pretty solid.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bonus bomber from the generous NachlamSie. Thanks! Nice bottle cap of a Scottish dude with bagpipes...keeper. Pours with a small head of small bubbles that fades to an awesome microbubble veil on the surface. Amber color becomes cloudy only after I pour the yeast goodies in from the bottom of the bottle. Nice hoppy aroma. Sweet and delicious with the alchohol well hidden. Hop bitterness is mild and hop aroma is above average. The hops used are really wonderful. Not so much west coast grapefruit hops, but a little different fruit. What’s with all of these sad 3.5 faces? I thought it was very good! 4.1!
