2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle..conditioned? Certainly plenty of gunk swirling around in the bottle (mine is 9.3%). Sloppy bronze pour with no head and the condition of fruit juice. Oh dear. Sweet, soggy confectionery aroma; purple Allsorts, orange Smarties, fudge, banoffee and honey. Sounds good, but inappropriately sickly and hopless. Orange Smartie flavour, soggy with peach, cheesecake base and soap. At least the alcohol gets buried by sweetness. Drinkable, with no off notes but totally lacking condition and hop character. Easily the poorest US IPA I’ve ever had.

Bottle to snifter (thanks dudeabide). Looks good; a hazy burnt-orange with sticky white lacing. Smells hoppy and somewhat funky. Tastes like it smells, but better. Mouthfeel is good, but somewhat bretty. Good, but an atraditional DIPA.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can. Pours with a hazy, deeper orange hued body with a massive, just off-white head with decent lace. Aromas show a huge crystal like malt presence. Malt dominates with a moderate floral, pine and citrus zest hop aroma component. Sweet iced tea aromas, insect repellant, marmalade, over ripe fruits and deep caramel aromas. Flavors are extremely sweet with a medium to strong bitter, some citrus pith, pine, hoppy, herbal grapefruit and noticeable warmth in the finish. Slightly sharp. Medium to full carbonation, medium bodied and boozy. Way too loaded with dextrins for me.

Can. Pours hazy gold with an off white head. Herbal and floral hops, lighter fruity notes, and a lightly sweet malty base. Just a touch of harsh bitterness in the finish. Nice enough.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Canned. Poured hazy medium orange with a creamy, well-retained beige head. The aroma picked up orange and other, somewhat dank citrus fruits over some biscuity malts.. not big, but quite enjoyable. The flavor found grapefruit meat, sweet caramel, and biscuity notes at the core.. bitter orange peel and black pepper around.. finished citrusy and bitter, with a nice warm kick. Medium-bodied and a tad grainy on the palate.. balance was good.. this was better than expected, and I’ll have another.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
12-oz can. Pours a hazy medium amber with a dense and creamy tan head that takes off as soon as it touches the moustache. Very mild apricot nose mixed with caramel. Creamy medium body with modest carb. Caramel and apricot mid palate, along with a bit of nitrogenous funk. Not a welcome addition. Mild finish.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thanks to sebletitje! 355 ml. can split by 4. Hazy orange, small white head. Nose is bitter orange, pine resin rather malty with some marmalade. Taste is milky yeast, bread, bitter pine resin, some sugary sweetness, marmalade, bitter dry finish with chewy malt body & a bit too much yeast. Quite nice & decent. A bit surprised by the very low score on here. Nothing special but quite satisfactory all the same.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tallahassee, Fl - World Market - 12 oz can. Pours a medium golden with nice bubble action, a sticky show white head and thick rings of lacing. Strong resiny fresh spruce aroma, touch of spearmint. Flavor has plenty of sticky hop citrusy bitterness, a touch of maple syrup sweetness, a hint of spearmint. Mouthfeel has a nice stickiness to it. Fades just a bit in the finish, but overall pretty solid.
