3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bottle, bottled on 11/30/09, courtesy of MrChopin. Hazy marmalade color with a thin ring of white foam that never quit goes away. Candied orange peel and toasted malt on the aroma, maybe a hint of pine also. Big herbal bitterness, slightly astringent and vegetal with a hint of toasted malts. I don’t think father time has been awesome to this beer, but all in all much better than I was expecting for a 5 month old DIPA.

Thanks to RussianDragon for pointing out that I neglected to rate this. From my old school notes: 23 Jan 2010
Shared by the former drinkndrive. Thanks Devin!
The beer is golden orange with a small, soapy white head. Aromas of spicy malt, tropical fruit, booze. Bold and assertive flavor, with mango, pineapple. Resinous and full bodied, finishing with alcoholic warmth. Pretty tasty.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at Jackie O’s. Pours gold with a decent head and huge aromas of mango, papaya, pineapple and a hint of resin. The papaya was a particular shock to me. Very strong presence in both the nose and flavor. Booze is obvious (board says 11.9% on this batch) and it says "Beware!"

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted on 4/28/12 with the Nashville and Knoxville crews at Curtis’ old house, big thanks to JR for bringing this one. Pours clear orange with an average off-white head that leaves average lace. The nose is sweet orange peel, some resin hops, and light caramel malt. The flavor is pretty much the same, a more malt-forward DIPA with sweet and bitter orange peel, a nice hit of bitterness, and caramel malt. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long orange peel and resin hops finish.
