4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured a deep copper color in my tulip glass, maybe a little too dark for my liking in a IIPA. Beautiful head and lacing as I sipped the beer. Not a huge hop head nose but goes very well. Balance is nice! Not a real strong mouthfeel but has a real bitter finish. Lots of fruit notes throughout the entire drink. This beer is 10% and you dont taste it one bit. Wow I could get in trouble drinking this! Thumbs up!

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- A thick smelling blend of strong hops and a touch of malt, very good.
Appearance- Pours a golden brown with a slight amount of haze. Has a medium off-white head.
Taste- A big hop and yeast flavor that hides the high ABV. Really enjoyable.
Palate- A heavy bodied beer with moderate carbonation, has a very creamy texture.
Overall- A very good American DIPA, It is hard to find in Georgia but I would buy it again.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I like the beer, but itís a bit sweet for me. The bear pours a bronze color into a goblet glass with a small head. The smell and taste are dominated by honey and citrus. The aftertaste is very smooth. It does not taste like it has 10% ABV at all, which makes it extra "sneaky"...

This is a dark hoppy IPA that is smooth and filling. It is very hoppy and statifying. Nice aroma as well.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This was poured into a tulip.
The appearance was a hazy burnt orange color with a slim fingerís worth of white foaminess that quickly dissipated leaving some stringy lacing roaming here and there.
The smell had a decent sweet grapefruit with a slight grassiness and a decent caramel malt backbone.
The taste copied the smell and brought in a slight extra citrus to give off a slight bittersweet appeal. A bitter citrus aftertaste leads to a quick dry caramel/citrus finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a more sipping quality about it. The carbonation seemed fairly rounded out, slightly smooth and didnít have the expected punch that I wanted in a DIPA.
Overall, at 10% and lack of harshness, Iím wondering if this was old. I didnít see any date on the bottle, probably only have again if I knew it was fresh.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft sample at the Cherry Blossom Beer & Wine fest a week ago, orangy-amber color with off-white head. Aroma notes of grapefruity/citrus/herbal hops and caramel malt sweetness. Taste adds pine/resin, bread and faint honey sweetness. Moderate-heavy body, low-moderate carbonation, thick, dry, sticky with bitter grass/citrus hop finish. Nice strong DIPA.

Very tasty with good aroma of sweetness. Golden color, but without much head or lacing. It could use more carbonation. High alcohol content of 10%.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ the brewpub, the first stop on TvMís Bachelor Party Northwest Ale Trail Expedition. Light orange, average white head. Big aroma of candyish ripe tropical fruits, hints of Swedish Berries. Sweet palate, with loads of oily hoppy goodness, mango, papaya, ending with an intense bitterness, boozy undertones.
