3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
300th rating! Pours a clear golden with long lasting head and great lacing. Aroma is tons of toffee malt with caramel and licorice, slightly dank with dark fruit. Very rich, heavy, syrupy aroma. Not what I’m used to in a West Coast DIPA, but enjoyable nonetheless. Taste is sticky sweet up front with a cotton candy vibe, then some hops cut in with a juicy pine that dries out into a good aftertaste. Really dry finish. Overall this is rich and enjoyable, but much different than I’m used to for this style.

Bottle Pours a lightly hazy copper with a good off white head. The head is frothy and lasting. Producing spotty lacing. Has a good aroma of citrus and pine. Has a good carbonation. The flavor is excellent a sharp hit of bitterness. The alcohol is well hidden and this is blended very well. Has a resiny texture. The body is full. Has a wondewrful finish with a great aftertaste. This is one heck of a beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Floral hop aromas. Flavor is just a bit too much on the sweet side for my tastes--seems to favor the malt over the hops. There are the usual pine-bitter and citrus flavors at work. Quite a bitter finish overall.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bottle served in a Duvel tulip. Pours a brilliant amber topped by big sticky off-white head. Smells very yummy, lots of pine, citrus, papaya, and toffee fill my nostrils. Full resinous hop presence in the flavor. Notes of tangerine, pine, and mango. Very good stuff.

Tasted from the tap on the 08/02/2016. This is the kind of juice I like at night! Very hoppy and fruity beer. Finish is medium dry and bitter. Very well balanced hop combination. Next one please!
