3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. A copper color with a white head. A sticky fruity hop filled aroma with a slightly sweet long bitter hoppy flavor. It finishes dry with a long aftertaste and enough malts to keep its backbone.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Poured light amber with a short, swirly beige head. The aroma picked up citrus and detergenty hops, with peppery, rather harsh alcohol around. The flavor found caramel and alcohol-laden honey maltage at the core.. citrus and pine bitterness around, along with more sharp boozage.. hot, bitter finish. Medium-plus bodied, bitter, and boozy on the palate.. OK flow at best.. some nice stuff in there, but very rough overall.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nose of citrus, piney hops & sweet malts. Flavor is some orange, pineapple w/ malty caramel & toffee notes. On the sweeter side. Not as complex as I’d like from a DIPA, but not bad.

Enjoyed in Jeff’s garage. Grapefruit rind and a bit of pine. Kind of simple, crisp but not overly exciting. Nice to drink, just up against so many outstanding beers in this class. Maybe influenced by the two with me who complain about hoppy beers.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear amber color/ ivory head. Big pine, citrus, spicy, resinous hop aromas. Medium bodied with average co2. Pine sap, floral, tropical fruit flavors on a solid pale malt base brew--very good.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured into a snifter. Big thanks to Bilbosnuts for this.
4.0 A: Super clear pale orange color. Two fingers of Frothy off-white head. Retention is average at best, but a ton of lacing is left.
4.0 S: Flowery and super citrusy hops. Mango, papaya, and orange stick out the most. Very little neutral maltiness and not much else. Simple, but quite pleasant.
3.5 T: Like the nose, this is all hops, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Moderate or a bit more bitterness. Hop flavor, in descending order, includes orange, grapefruit, pine, mango. It’s tasty.
3.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Fine, but lacking the creaminess that I like in a good DIPA.
3.5 D: Tasty beer, but unfortunately this occupies the same style as many stellar beers, which makes this one a bit less impressive.

Bottle. Creamy eggshell head on a mostly clear light amber orange. Lots of herbal, dank, and fruity hoppiness with some malty sweetness sneaking in. flavor is definitely bitter but the bottle I’m working on is a touch sweet and not sure it’s the freshest sample... Has a good bit of herbal and citric hops hanging around in the background but just seems muted by a relatively malty sweetness. Medium to thicker body.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
What a surprise in this here beer I find, eh. The nose was the first element to bring a sort of smile to me face, full oh fruity and juicy-like hops there was, did I slip and fall into a giant-sized fruit cocktail? These sort of questions seemed fill me brains. Once me lips hit that liquid and it glided across me tongue and down my throat, I was oh so pleasantly happy that it was as far from syrupy and cumbersome as I reckon a dipa could be...lovelinly dry, fruity hop flavors, clean, crisp, whispers of body, probably one of the easiest, cleanest, best drinkin dipas I can wrap my memory around. Exquisite stuff, me likes.
