Piney, mild citrusy, earthy hops. Pale malt balanced with hops. Bit watery, some metallic flavors. Decent finish... Not good, not bad....

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, shared with Parksy and Grippitis. Deep orange colour, off white head. This is a malt-heavy IIPA, with a sweeter profile, still with an abundance of hops, ending with an aspirin-like bitterness.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a bottle. Deep cloudy amber colour, lasting small off white head, big malty aroma with hints of fruit. Sharp fruit and malty flavours with a warming lingering aftertaste. It is definitely for those that like a big robust flavour.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pretty tasty, it did not have as much of a hops punch that I was expecting. Was a tad bit to malt forward for my taste. The stone fruit notes were nice though.

3.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle pour a deep thick copper, nice tan head, great lacing. Faint aroma belies the fantastic full flavors - hop-forward, a bitter punch complemented by floral sweetness and strong sweet/bready malt back. Great balance, mouthfeel is almost sticky with hop resin. Substantial gravity is well concealed. Great DIPA!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle to glass. Pours a murky deep amber orangish color with a creamy tan head. Aroma is faint citrus. Flavor is moderately biter, but without many other hoppy characteristics. Bitterness lingers in the finish. Ok imperial. Nothing special.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This pours as a amber with an orange hue to it. it is a bit cloudy. The head is actually kind of peach in color. It actually has a bit of a caramel smell mixed with the citrus. There are apricot flavors that dominate the flavor with other hops and malts. It is not as bitter as must brews in this category.
