3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Excellent look - big thick tan cap with great retention, Guinness-like lacing, deep orange / red with lots of suspended flecks. There are tons of sweet citrus, resin, ruby red grapefruit and cotton candy from hops and it comes across fairly fresh as well. Taste wise this is an absolute raping by hops. My taste buds are taking a well deserved "Williams Beat down"(old old skool youtube vid of a black chick beating the hell out of some dude real good). Man, just a shit load of hops - damn! I’m so down with this. The malts don’t balance this at all and I could care less. Semi-sweet caramel holds out when warmer. There is some hop heat as well.. actually, lots of it. Resin, raisins, grapefruit. Thick middle, just a massive hop atomic bomb. F’n A! Permanent hop destruction. 1L of bitter medicine.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
1L bottle brought back by my brother.
Appearance : Slightly hazy amber with medium foamy and creamy head. Lots of lacing.
Aroma : Resinous and piny hops with caramel malt. Light bready notes.
Taste : Piny and citrusy with caramel. Resinous. Nice citrusy and piny notes but a bit hidden by the caramel.
Overall : A bit heavy on the caramel for my taste. A bit heavy overall. Not enough aromatics for me to match the grain bill. Still well done and enjoyable.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft sample at Barley Bros. Hazy orange in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas of orange, white grapefruit, dried leaves, and caramel syrup. Dank C-hops and pine upfront followed by a pale and caramel malt base. Finishes with an odd heavy + leafy bitterness paired with a heavy sweet malt note that doesn’t quite balance out.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I found this beer quite enjoyable. The pour is a coppery orange with a finger of nice white-beige head. The aroma is fairly hop forward with floral and grass notes, citrus and pine. Fairly malty middle with a sweet caramel and resinous hops taste. The finish is resinous with an overbearing citrus dry hop. Not a bad IIPA, but not the best.
