2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours deep copper/red, thick off-white head, decent to poor lacing. Nose is deep caramel, overripe grapefruit, some damp cardboard, some soap... Flavours are sweeter than expected, smoky caramel, pith, some grass, soap and boiled vegetables. Really not my thing...

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
A pale yellow/ gold with a thin white foam. Smells like bread layered in citrus and resin. Low carbonation and light body that has a distinctive pine flavor. No spice but finishes with a slight bitter flavor. Rather boring.

Deep golden orange pour, thin decent layer of creamy off white head and sticky striped lacing ... aroma of chewy caramel malts, citrusy hops, light pine and a little resiny ..... taste of citrusy and light piney hops, mostly chewy caramel malts, little resiny ... nice bitter hop bite that lingers into the finish ... like a cross between an imperial red and dipa ... abv hidden insanely well for 9.3% ... they must have changed their recipe .. nicely done

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Clear amber liquid with medium off-white head. Aroma is maybe a bit stale but has notes of grapefruit, mango, citrus, caramel and blackberries. Quite fresh aroma with a nicely malty backbone. Taste is light sweet and medium to high bitter with notes of grass, caramel and biscuit. Medium bodied with a bit high carbonation. OK DIPA, especially for the price ($4).

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can. Pours amber with no head and some floaties. Stale hop aroma, alcohol overly present. Flavor like a bad barleywine, really sticky sweet and surprising lack of hops despite being moderately fresh.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can. Pours a deep orange color with a thin white head. Tangy aroma with a nice, dry, hoppy feel. Nice, tart kick with sweet hops in the background. Excellent balance for a canned double IPA. Very impressive.

15 June 2012. Can. Gold, clear, no bubbles. Nose is sweet orange juice, barley winish, Carmelized syrup. Med body and slightly fizzy. Faintly yeasty, lots of sweet sugar, faint bitter finish. Great all around.

1.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pours a deep rich amber color with a big three finger head... Aromas are sweet toffee butterscotch with a touch of pine. On the palate this really is a mess... Butterscotch and alcohol, taste like an overly sweet barley wine that was mixed with a half glass of tap water.... slight bitterness in the finish, other than that where are the hops... again where are the hops ?

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a hazy orange/amber with a huge lt tan head....good lacing and retention...only thing they got right. Aroma is sweet butterscotch. Flavor is uber piney butterscotch...what a mess. Mouthfeel is full and oily and the finish is bitter piney butterscotch. Horrendous.
