3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle, from my local Whole Foods. Shared with friends over a game of Catan. Mostly clear amber color. Thin off-white head. Couple loose dots of lace. Bigger body. Smooth, lightly soft, kind of lighter carbonation. Spicy hop, some light citrus zest, balanced well with biscuity malt, some light caramel. Moderate bitter taste, light sweet. Light hint of alcohol warmth in the finish. Solid DIPA.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A yellow appearance with a white head. Aroma contains some perfume, citrus, an aftersmell of marijuana. The flavor is very bitter with some lemons and some sour notes with a bit of funkiness going on. I checked the bottle to make sure it was "wild" and it is not. Overall very different but good.

Bomber. Hazy light orange pour with a white head. Huge floral hop nose and taste - super good. Little bit of grassy / dandelion element. Love this.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle. Pours a dark golden color with foamy off-white head. Aroma is hoppy, mostly floral with just a touch of citrus. Flavor is intensely bitter, this is a pure hop bomb. Medium bodied with a slick mouthfeel. This is good, but I would have enjoyed this more with a bit more balance in the flavor.

Bright coppery amber color with a strong off white head. Bitter hops, citrus, punchy finish. Pine, grass, resin, and a bit of spice. Strong and full.

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from bottle. Strange aroma of malt, flowers and car wax. Dark gold with pillowy head -a beauty in the sun. I taste malt, floral and pine hops, dandelion, honey, spice which I do not recognize, and, unfortunately, soap. . Cannot detect any alcohol (probably will in a few minutes). An odd duck of a beer.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A - Pours a mostly clear amber with a 2 finger sudsy head that retains well.
S - Floral hops and sweetarts. Mango, papaya, sharp honey orange blossoms surround a clean pale malt along with hints of caramel and alcohol vapors.
T - Tart candy flourishes bready malt with some zesty green floral hops making their presence the last half of the drink. The hops add a stingy bitterness that bites but disappears quickly and does not stick around after the finish.
This is an extremely clean drinker. Itís green and clean! That should be the new slogan! The tart candy was fun but didnít seem to round off with the malt. Itís a wacky DIPA which I like but it needs some refinement.

Itís good, but itís not great. With an IBU of 127, I expected more hops. But then again Hop Stoopid let me down and it 103 IBU. This does have, if you swish it around in your mouth, a lot of grapefruit sweetness going on. The aftertaste is nice, piney and drying. But not my favorite IPA. Iíve had better for less.
