3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sweet... Malty honey and citrus. Smooth. Light pallet short lasting. Not very hoppy, just enough to balance the sweet malts

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Meh...a boring a malt forward IIPA. While I won’t say this beer is undrinkable, I was hoping for a good hoppy beer and this wasn’t it. To be fair, it was bottled in February and I am drinking it in the end of June.Aroma was very malty from the moment I popped the cap. Mud, caramel malt and ginger ale. Pour was a nice dark gold with a one finger off white head. Taste was, again, very malty and sweet. Gingerbread was the major flavor with anise, earthy malt and slight notes of rye. No hint of bitterness or hops at all. Decent carbonation. Would love to try this fresh.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A nice copper hue with a tan head that had mild retention and lace. Some yeast sediment at the bottom gave it slightly more body, Aroma had a nice caramel malt base upfront. There was a woody quality that reminded me of a barley wine. Some dank hops, a nice dose of grapefruit hops and a touch of pine. Flavor had a heavy sweet malt presence upfront. The Hops cut right through it. The subtle blend of citrus and resinous pine seemed to balance out the beer. A nice sweetness in the finish. Nice mouth feel. Alcohol seemed hidden...sneaky?

22 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured dark amber with a a nice thick beige head and lots of lacing. Aroma is nice and hoppy (citrus hops), combined with malts and fruit. Taste is sweet and malty combined with hops and citrus fruits. Alcohol is very well hidden. This is a solid DIPA; very enjoyable and easy to drink. Very good beer.

Sweet, citrusy aroma. Clear brown pour with nice lacy white head. Malts come through with a good balance of sweetness and hops. A little soapy tasting.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUN 11, 2013 Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a dark orange-caramel color with a medium sized foamy orange-tan head that left good lacing. The aroma was sweet with faint notes of pine and grapefruit. The flavor was somewhat bitter, tang and sweet with notes of caramel, sugar, pine, grapefruit, orange and a hint of tobacco. Medium length tangy pine and orange finish. Moderately full bodied. The alcohol was well hidden. Pleasant.

1.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
bottle from vintage. at first almost has a tartness to it then it goes bitter as with any typical dipa. my tasting friend says its good but my lager lovin tsate buds totally rejects this style. dull hop perfumy aroma lacks the typical b/o smell ya have with most ipa. thick rude cloying mouth coating soapy stuff. cannot detect honey but there is a something in there that makes it a little different than other dipa. not the kind of beer you’d give to a starting beer taster.
