3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650 ml bottle from bev4less. Pours a translucent light copper color with a small white head that slowly recedes to a film. The aroma is big and bold with oranges, clementines and grapefruit. The flavor is not nearly as citrusy as the nose would suggest, there is a good dose of pine in the forefront, with moderate oranges and grapefruit filling in the back end. The malt base was unremarkable from a flavor standpoint. Palate is full and silky with lively carbonation. Finishes long and dry with lingering bitter grapefruit and pine. Overall: The nose is first-rate, but the piney aspect of the flavor did not really grab me. The bitterness comes across as a bit harsh, that aside its a nice little DIPA.

First sip is awsome.... AWSOMENESS IS AWSOME!!!! Just finished walking 12km today have had very little food.... I’m sure this will kill me. Smells so good, ginger, lime, bread, fresh and crisp. Taste is epicly the same but awsome. Bitterness destroys your face after every sip. Lime, leather, earth, more stuff and things. I can drink the shit out of this. Stupid elk staying out range..... so frustrating!!!!b Beer will make it all better, yay beer. So chugable. I just drank this 650 bottle in 15min..... my head is fucked.

Very well done DIPA! Nice and bitter while still maintaining the big citrus blast. Nice pour with a foamy head and lacing. Hazy orange. Also had notes of pine, spruce, resin, and a floral earthiness with some lemon.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
650ml bottle. Slightly cloudy, yellow-ish, deep golden colour with average to huge, thick, frothy to creamy, more than fairly lasting, persistently lacing, white head. Citrusy hoppy aroma with a minimally soapy touch, notes of lemon, lemon zest, lime, a touch of cleansing agent (Meister Proper), malty background with almond touch. Taste is citrusy hoppy, a mixture of hop and almond malt bitterness, lemon; slightly soapy finish. Sacrifices balance for virility.

Draft at Ground Control. Bronze and earthen, this is gritty and chewy, definitely rife with some leafy edge but a definite alcohol burn. Good stuff. (#6032, 9/11/2015)
