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.

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

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle poured into a snifter. Pours a clear amber with about a finger of thick white head. Aroma of citrus, caramel, pine and tropical fruits. Taste is medium bitter and light sweet. Mostly caramel and citrus. Medium bodied with a creamy texture. Overall, very good. Not as good as some other beers out there, but I would gladly drink this any day.

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.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured from 12oz bottle, pours a hazy golden amber with an off white head, the aroma is extremely sweet with a ton of malt, the flavor is all malt and caramel with no hops to it at all, the mouthfeel is sticky and sweet and the abv is tasted through out the entire beer, this is a huge sweet malty booze bomb.

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.

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. Can’t hardly smell much else. Flavor’s 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.

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 I’m 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.
