3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber. Thanks to Chris H. Nice balanced aroma with prominent peach notes. Gold, good head, very thick lacing. A springy syrupy sweetness; mid palate has very noticeable alcohol warmth; sharp, tangy aftertaste, and then a mildly bitter finish. Medium body. Quite tasty, but the alc. heat is a bit much.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Whole Foods Foggy Bottom, DC. This DIPA had a really nice citrus and floral hop presence. It had a filtered clear pour and a slight alcohol aftertaste lurking in the background. All in all, though, an exceptional pour that I really enjoyed.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
One of my current favorites and a steal at $5.99. Bottle pours effortlessly with a nice white head. Its bitterness is so understated that its really smooth and a hoppy IPA with no apparent issues. A great DIPA and one of the better ones out there today...
