4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured this at a good temperature with a mammoth, foamy, frothy, thick, cream-colored head that settled very slowly and plenty of lace. Color is a clear amber with many bubble trails. Aroma is mainly fresh hop composed of citrus and then resin. Canít hardly smell much else. Flavorís like nose, fairly dry, mostly bitter with complimentary carbonic tang. Body is a bit thin and carbonation is decent. Finish is like flavor with bitterness being very long; not much sign of the alcohol. Too bitter without the balance for me.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. Very cloudy amber/orange with a huge foamy head that lingers around for a while to form rocky peaks. Aroma of sweet citrus peel, tropical fruit, pine and herbal tea. Flavor of sweet malt and oranges, rough hop bitterness and a well hidden alcohol. This is a very odd beer, lots of sweet citrus and malt with a weird abrasive hop presence.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can. Moderate malt aromas of roasted and caramel, pine for the hops, light soap for the yeast, with pepper and dried fruit. Head is large, fizzy/frothy, white with good lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is slightly hazy yet sparkling light amber. Flavor starts slightly sweet and lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is medium, slick, with a soft to lively carbonation. Nothing over the top in this DIPA but everything is in the right place per the style.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a slight-hazed golden in color with a well-built white head. Fruity-citrus hop aroma. Full-bodied with a floral, light piney hop dominance that lingers nicely. Pretty good for the price.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can from Mariís. 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. Donít see the low rating.. pretty solid overall brew for my palate.

Yellow brown reddish in color... Sweet syrupy aroma... Flavor is fairly sweet, burnt caramel malt, finish is not very bitter, mild spicy hop finish... Not the best

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
12oz bottle. Pours hazy copper color with very small white ring of bubbles. Aromas of a ton of sweet malts, caramel, booze, faded hops, and a little citrus. Not looking good. Flavors of warm sweet malts and caramel. Where are the hops. Not worth drinking. ughh

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(12oz bottle from Total Wine Henderson). Pours a clear copper color with massive tan head. Lively carbonation. Aroma is caramel, resin, citrus and some tropical fruits. Taste is sweet with some bitterness on the end. Thinner bodied with a slick texture. Bitter, but smooth finish. Not bad at all, but its got a way to go before it can compete with the multitude of great DIPAs.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Pacific Liquor: Appeared as an opaque glowing orange that had tons of sediment floating about while a frothy topping of head rested on top. Aroma is bad and has no evidence of being an Imperial IPA and smells more like a Raisin Bran cereal. The flavor is putrid with a taste of stale hops and malts that have clearly expired past their prime. Its almost as if Iím drinking a pure malt beverage such as Goya that has no hops of yeast added to the drink. Awful stuff and clearly should have been pulled off the selling shelves long time ago.
