Poured with a nice head and some lace. Colors a clear golden amber. Aroma is a resiny hop malt with some spice. Flavor is like nose of course only richer and on the sweet side. Decent body. Good drinking beer.

Tap at Jernigans. Flavors are all present for a good DIPA but it lacks a bit of body. Nice fruited hop finish.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Pazzeria, Milan
Light amber color, clean and bright, with generous compact head. Powerful hoppy aroma, classic, with a mild animal side. Full bodied but lean, not thick, with moderate residual sweetness, pleasant and not cloying; dynamic caramel and toffee flavor, compounded by a fresh jam fruity character; the bitterness is well controlled, and overall this beer has a good balance. Highly drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Pours light gold with good carbonation and a lacy white head. Good nucleation makes for a great appearance. Immediate aroma smothered with orange citrus and grapefruit and a hint of buttery diacetyl underneath. Flavor leans sweet and malty rather than dry and peppery; crystal malt sweetness fades into a beatdown of hops and high alcohol. Notes of rum cake, butterscotch, white raisin. Finish is rather difficult to muster; just a bit over the top for me, lacking the balance and crisp peppery dryness only found in a few top-tier double IPAís. Still rather enjoyable, I hope to try more of their beers soon.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Gift pack from Craft Beer Connect. The aroma is caramel, cooked vegetables, fruit, spicy, soapy. The appearance is mostly clear deep amber, off-white head. The flavor is caramel, vegetable, fruit, sweeter than aroma, slightly soapy, citrus. The finish is vegetable, citrus, grapefruit. Medium in body, slightly thick. Pretty nice. Slightly off favors and aromas like vegetables and soap make this less than he standout it should be. Alcohol is well hidden. Fairly solid though.

Bomber bottle. Pours clear copper orange, white head. Aroma is grass, lemongrass. Taste is a bit bitter and clear, very clear and crisp. Itís refreshingly so for a DIPA.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz. bottle, pours a clear orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out loads of orangey fruits, resinous hops, and a big caramel malt backing. Flavour is very similar, starting fruity and malty, transitioning to a more astringent resinous hoppy finish. Very well-balanced, with a nice bitter finish that cuts out the maltiness, though the malts do overburden the more you drink.
