3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Location: 750 ml bottle from State Line, 1/24/15, Rating #4250
Aroma: It has a fruity aroma, a bit of astringency/cleaner, with resin and pine coming through later
Appearance: It pours an unclear orange color with a small beige head and some spotty, coating lace
Flavor: Flavor-wise, there’s a decent hop bitterness, slightly astringent, with a mild sweetness
Palate: The body is medium, it has a soft-to-average carbonation, and a rather dry, astringent finish
This is an alright DIPA, but it falls short for me. The hops and hop flavors are not all that well rounded. I found it a bit too flawed. Too much astringency. Still, its a decent beer, but in this style, it is on the lower end for me.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a pale, hazy orange with a good lasting head and a Sweet malty aroma. It has a velvet texture on the tongue and has massive hop finish with big hints of pine accompanied with slight roasty characters. Get a fist in ya!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
It poured a cloudy brown color with an off-white head. The aroma was moderate to heavy earthy hops. The taste was medium to heavy hoppy bittersweet with a good bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. Very tasty.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not bad, but not up to SoCal double ipa standards either. Lots of pine and spice, with the citrus taking a back seat on this drive. Covers the abv well for 9+, but also isn’t quite big enough elsewhere either... Good sessionable beer. surprisingly."

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Glowing ember pour with a fluffy eggshell crown. Rings of lacing remain in the glass. Candied citrus, sugar coated orange slices, resin, caramel, and alcohol. Beautiful beer that doesn’t quite hold up in other areas. A bit sweet for the style and wasn’t expecting the forward alcohol hit.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy orange with a white head. Citrus aroma complimented by bread malt. Toasted malt and hop flavors are fairly mild. There’s a little funk in the finish. Not bad but unusual.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Small, off white head with good retention and nice lacing. Murky, orange hued brew. Faintly fruity nose, light peachy notes with some biscuity malts. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, distracting astringency. Metallic notes, minerally, slight pine and that damn astringency just keeps annoying the hell outta me. Dry, astringent finish. Why is this in a 750 anyways? Just too much. Not necessary. Bottle from statelineliquors.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Nice-looking muddy orange ue. T/he head is but a wisp but hangs on for dear life. The aroma is caged and subtle, but the beer drinks with a distinctly earthy essence, finishing with a very cloying dry-hop bite. In between is a relatively easy-going beer with an organic base, keeping the 9.5% ABV well disguised. (#5419, 11/26/2014)
