4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bottle from Total Wine (Park Place) - Pours a clear amber color with a 1/2 finger thick light tan head. Decent lacing. Aroma is pungent hops (lots of pine and resin). Flavor is pine, citrus, and floral hops. Initially, this beer was quite bitter. It became fairly smooth as I drank it. Medium to full body. A good beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at brewery. Lots of sugar and a citrus/orange aroma in the nose. Flavor is pretty much identical, moderately sweet with a bit of alcohol noted. ok, but I like Simtra better I think.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draft at Tap 25. It pours a clear light gold color with a white head. The aroma has bright lemon and orange with hints of tropical fruit and florals. The flavor is spicy, fruity and floral with touches orange oil cleaner and malt. The body is full and oily on the palate. The finish has strong, but not oppressive bitterness and noticeable alcohol. Similar to Simtra in it’s brutish assault, but overall pretty enjoyable.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Thanks to jimiantz for this. Pours hazy reddish gold with a small white foamy top and good lacing. Reader beware, I am drinking this past an "acceptable" age for a DIPA. Hops are still very prevalent in this. Aroma is a wall of centennial pine and quite dank. Taste is again a blast of hops, thick and resinous. I could only imagine this fresh, it would blow your mind. Obvious overage on the hop bitterness but still tons of sweet malt and caramel that tries to accomodate for the intense hop additions. Solid beer.

1.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
22oz bottle. Tulip glass. Not my favorite. Honeydew aroma, cloudy bronze pour, very little dingy head. Black pepper, grass and honey on the tongue. Biting boozy bitterness makes you think long and hard before taking another sip. Probably won't finish the bottle.

Bottle. The look is cloudy, an off white head, and orange in color. The smell is fruits, hops, marshmallow, cantaloupe, and nice. The taste is hops, fruits, pine, bitter, and a biting grip.
