It poured a hazy copper color with an off-white head. The aroma was of moderate earthy hoppiness and sweet maltiness. The taste was similar with soft carbonation and a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Nicely done.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - Skunky hops with a bit of grass and a light malt sweetness. Pale gold with a bubbly white head. Resin, bitterness and a candy like sweetness. A decent IIPA, doesn’t have the body or malts to really back it up though.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from a can. Deeply golden with a lasting froth. Smells very fresh and piny with a touch sweetness. Full on the tongue with a silky, creamy texture. This high octane brew is a classic. High hop rate, fat malt body with an excellent sense of freshness. Pour me another will ya?

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can from Mari’s. Pours crystal clear orange with a couple fingers of off white head. There is tons of carbonation in the glass supporting the retention of the head. The aroma smells like a pine tree, pine cone, some resin, light floral notes, mild caramel. The taste on this is pretty damn bitter and hits you pretty quick on the tongue. The hop flavor is fairly earthy and has a strong caramel backing. Limited citrus on this and the finish is very dry. Don’t see the low rating.. pretty solid overall brew for my palate.

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).

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted from a bottle received as a trading extra. Pours a clear light brown with very little head, but just decent lace. The nose is caramel malt with good fruitiness, featuring mostly dried fruits, and a nice grapefruit hop aroma that sneaks in under everything else. The flavor has some sweetness up front, but is a little more bitter than expected from the nose with the citrus and almost raisin fruitiness coming through as well. The body is fairly full, but has somewhat of a watery texture with very little carbonation and a long bitter and fruity finish.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Deep golden color with a huge foamy whitish head. Bitter hoppiness, earthy, dirty, leading to a thin finish. Not as strong as the alcohol content would lead you to believe.
