4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
22oz bomber pours clear copper with a light tan head of foam. The aroma is thick with resiny hops coming from pine to grapefruit to a certain level of grassiness. As it warmed I started to pick up some floral hop notes. The taste is resiny hop richness nuanced by a modest malt sweetness. I get grapefruit, lime peel, grassy wet bitter hop leaves, a bit of dank earthy hoppiness and then it seems to get more resiny with robust levels of pine sap midway and into the finish. This is big bold rich and bitter with slivers of hop flavor here and there to keep it interesting. Dandy IIPA.

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.

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.
