3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pros: Nice appearance, long lasting cream. Cracker-like malts, cereal, nice balance and fresh flavors.
Cons: Nose is very light on the hop, slightly milky, sour cream, chive, kinda nasty. Dull. Not very bright, or assertively hopped.
A decent ale.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours amber with a nice two fingered head. A lot of sediment in this one, a positive sign in my eyes. Aroma is malty for the style with obvious grapefruit and spicy overtone. Flavor has a nice yeasty malt bill up front and rolls over into a tangy citrus rind bitterness. There is a slight metallic aftertaste. Lightly carbonated, it goes down fairly smooth. Overall, a solidly made DIPA. I would definitely try again.

The only thing that lacked was that there was a lingering bitterness in the aftertaste. Half way through, I didn't even notice.

Aromas of citrusy and resinous hops, and some honeyed malts. Hazy orange with a lasting minimal white head. Dry, well balanced with a round malt bill supporting the hops. Medium bodied, finishes clean.

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.
