3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: very hazy bronze color, pours with a huge beige head, the head is very creamy
Aroma: syrup, grass, roasted malt, grain, butter
Taste: citrus, apple maybe, alcohol, bitter finish,
Palate: average carbonation, leaves mouth feeling wet, has a bitter aftertaste
Overall: this is a good IPA with lots of subtle complexities about it, the alcohol is a bit high and dominates much of the experience,

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
22 oz bottle - June 2012 bottle rated on Jan 6, 2014. Gusher. Thatís not a good sign. Once it stopped overflowing, it poured alright... hazy orange with a big off-white head. Then it got weird. I smell some grapefruit but more than that, I smell dirt and rot. No, itís not "earthy" in some positive way. Itís more like the bottom of the compost bin. What the hell? The gusher part makes me think infection but itís not sour. Fortunately it doesnít taste like compost, not that Iíve tasted compost. Itís extremely bitter with some citrus notes, an underpowered malt backbone, an underlying off character, and alcohol. I think that in the flavor the massive bittering hops mostly but not entirely overwhelm the serious flaws that show up in the aroma. Disappointing.

Beautiful beer! This is never a let down. In fact, the only beer that does not fit my style from this brewery, is one of their more popular beers. The huckleberry cream ale. Everything else is money.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650ml bottle. Mostly clear amber with a lovely frothy head. Nose is piney hops, touch of winter berry underneath. Taste consists of a base of sweet caramel, above which sits fruity mango, citrus and lots of hop bitterness. Nice amount of carbonation. Very drinkable for the ABV. Not quite excellent but tasty and enjoyable for sure.

3.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap @ Chuckís 85th. Pours slightly cloudy orangish copper with no head. Aroma is thin sweet caramel malt and earthy piney hops. Taste is huge thick syrupy sweet caramel malt with big bitter hops. Pine, citrus, and earthy hop notes on the finish. Lacking the balance and nuance of best-in-class DIPAs, but there is a lot to like here.

22 ounce bottle from Total Wine Sacramento, very bitter, perhaps unbalanced. Booziness is handled well.

Bottle. Poured copper with a frothy off-white head that settled to a ring. Floral aroma with a light alcohol backing. The flavor found floral hops and caramel. Medium body and a mild bitterness.

Tap pour - @ RHP. Pours hazy orange with medium white head. Aromas of orange, vanilla, creamy pine and citrus. Round body, slightly aged it seems as more caramel flavors are showing up. Smooth finish, easy drinking at 10%. Pretty good.
