3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy copper with half inch of creamy white head. Aroma of bright citrus, sour cherry that fades with the foam. In the mouth it gives off more of a grassy hop character, with cereal malt. Mouth puckering - slight sourness, noticeable astringency. Odd hop mix - doesnít really have the big fruity punch youíd expect for the style. Malt character likewise subdued. Almost more of an imperial pilsner. Not entirely enjoyable.

From 22 oz bottle. Notes taken at the time of consumption. Cloudy orange color with tall foamy white head good lacing. Bit of a unique floral herbal aroma. Much like the aroma...herbal and floral taste. Not really my favorite DIPA. A little too rough around the edges.

650mL bottle to pint glass
Sour apple, citrus, bread, and pine aromas. Clear amber with bubbly 1cm head and nice effervescence. Taste is peppery, a touch sweet, and bitter. Creamy, and medium bodied with an interesting astringency at the end.

Clear gold pour with white head. Aroma is sweet fruit and very hoppy. Taste of pine, grapefruit and hops. Strong bitterness balances with sweet. I like it.

Very good beer that is smooth for 126 IBU. Nice piney flavor. Wish it had more of a nose. Good beer!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy deep orange with fluffy, creamy white head, long lasting. Aroma seemed balanced; sweet, citrus, fruity hops. Medium to full body, creamy, initially (briefly) fruity-sweet, then fairly heavy bitterness and drying, lasting powdery hop finish. Flavor is a mouthful of hops. Pine and Grapefruit.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared at RBWG! Pours a clear golden orange with decent white head and moderate lacing. Aroma of citrus hops and a hint of caramel malt. Taste follows, pale malts up front with a resinous hop finish Easy to drink, slightly bitter finish. Good stuff, but not mind blowing.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Crystal clear honey brown with a tall creamy cap floating on top. Gawd dam this smells good, spicy hotness and tons of citrus, caramel malts, hints of leather. Man this is easy drinking pallet destroying yumminess. Almost medical hops, lemon, leather, sweet caramel malts are hiding under the massive bitterness. The speed in witch Iím drinking this is scary. The after taste has a burnt sugar quality. Pretty simple tasting and nicely balanced and not to pricey equals a good beer I will purchase again.
