Excellent stout, very rich. The color is smashing, the head is like caramel. First sip was boozy but not the second.

Amber colored. Has a light citrus and honey aroma. The hops are light, with a hint of honey sweetness, and the finish is dry. A complex and enjoyable IPA.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
FROM NOTES: July 29, í12
Poured from their 12oz bottle into a Leinenkugal tulip.
A: Sticky. piney and resinous. deeply hoppy aroma backed by a decent amount of sweet, cara malts.
A: Poured a clear, orange-amber with 2 fingers of golden yellow foam, very nice lacing left on the glass.
T: Dark tropical fruit intensity - grapefruit, oranges, and pineapple. Biscuit caramel malt is a little sweet but blends superbly with the hops. Finishes with a pine and grapefruit bitterness that doesnít last long.
P: Medium to heavy medium body for an IPA. Coats the mouth with fruit rind sweetness and some piney bitternes.
O: While not a higher peak on the IPA mountain, this beer most assuredly is a base camp in preparation for a summit attempt.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle stamped 07814-B21011337. 2013 vintage. The pour is a medium amber with a quick lasting off-white head. The aroma has a barleywine feel to it with a potent, boozy caramel maltiness but the hops are more in the background behind the malts. The body was full. The flavor has a caramel malty and sweet character. Moderate dry bitterness at the end.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle [12oz]. Pours a slightly hazy deep amber with some orange hues and a spare diminishing fizzy off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt, quite fruity and somewhat sweet, along with resiny hops, grain, toast and alcohol. Flavour is hoppy yes, but also sugary sweet, with brown sugar, caramel malt, alcohol, bready notes, fruit and a long bitter finish. Medium bodied. Pretty good but for a DIPA itís a bit too sweet, and not hoppy enough for me.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2013 12 oz. bottle from Total Wine - Pours a clear amber color with a small light tan head. Light lacing and carbonation. Aroma is mostly toasted malt and light floral hops. Flavor is sweetened toasted malt, esters, and light floral hops. Finish is kinda sweet with a small amount of bitterness. Medium to full body. To be honest, Iím kinda disappointed with this beer. I guess a fresher bottle would be better

12oz bottle. Pours a clear amber brown color with a thin white head. Smells sweet, malty, resinous, piney, and boozy. The taste is very nice malts at first then the hops kick in with a bitterness that hangs in there with the malty sweetness. Smooth medium body with a little carbonation.

Pours a hazy amber orange with a beige head and sweet aroma of hops, toffee and citrus. Taste is bitter sweet, sweetness up front with toffee, caramel, hops, and citrus leading to a bitter, long, dry finish. Good DIPA

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I had higher hopes for this one. Nice powerful aroma. A lighter color orange than other iipas Iíve had. Odd taste. Hoppy like it should be, but there us a strong flavor that I donít quite care for, but it isnít bad. Also, this beer Iíd around $12 for a 4 pack. Pretty pricy. There are much better and cheaper options out there.
