3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Part of a sampler I had... ultimately got a pint of this stuff.
Appearance: Ruby red with a nice head and a lot of lacing.
Smell: Not nearly as fruity as the Double Chin I had -- this is more earthy with pine and some citrus.
Taste: Like the smell with a solid bitterness on the finish. The bitter bite on this is a bit more than some other standard IPAs. Tasty stuff, and at only 5.7%, easy to session. Enjoyable, but not a mind blower.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Poured a clear dark copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy sour citrus and earthy aroma. Medium to abundant body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. My expectations where surpassed.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the brewpub. Served in a nonet.
Dark amber; clear; small but durable head leaves excellent lacing.
Musky/earthy/bubblegum aromas from the hops are dominant.
The taste is similar, but bitter rather than sweet.
Medium-full body with medium-low carbonation; a bit syrupy.

Draft to taster at HopCat. Looks Solid; a transparent orange with sticky off-white lacing. Smells solid; bitter and piney with a semi-sweet backbone. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. A bit sweet and syrupy, but solid nonetheless.
