4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Hazy copper color, creamy head. Very light butter trace in the aroma, suspicious but not disturbing. But the hop flavor is excellent, and floats over a good malt base, moderately sweet; rich of fruits and resins. Fresh.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A: The pour is a medium amber color with a finger or so worth of slightly off-white head.
S: Sweet tropical fruits and caramel malt, and that’s pretty much it. Maybe a bit of sweet grapefruit, too.
T: For as sweet as the nose is, there’s a very sharp bitterness to the flavor. There is also a lot of alcohol flavor. At least there are some good grapefruit, pineapple, and pine flavors so this isn’t a total bust.
M: The body is medium and sort of syrupy for a DIPA. The carbonation is moderate.
D: Not much here that I find pleasing in terms of a DIPA. Too sweet and just hot and boozy.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden-amber, thin head, mango and orange nose. Sweet and fruity character. Sticky malts have a touch of crystal. Nice hop character, maybe a bit too burly to truly enjoy more than a few sips, though.

Tap at The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours opaque oatmeal/orange - like it’s cereal ground and swirled. Lots of hop aroma that seems pine. Med + body. Flavor is sweet caramel with pine and lots of exotic type fruits. Pretty tasty beer.

Draft… Pours hazy and golden with orange highlights and a large, white head. The aroma features an assortment of tropical, stone and citrus fruits with an undercurrent of gooey caramel. Full-bodied with adequate carbonation. The flavor is fruity, boozy and malty. Well-balanced and bittersweet overall. Finishes hot with lingering ethanol and resiny bitterness.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
GABF 2013. Pours a hazy orange appearance with a khaki head. Garlic-y, onion, tropical fruity, mango, pineapple aroma. Flavor has a weirdly stale taste to it that honestly reminded me of a six month old can of Big Swell IPA that I opened recently. Some tropical fruits in the flavor but kind of strange and dull at the same time.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at St. Augustine’s, pours a hazy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma is full of tropical fruits, including mango and peach, alcohol, and caramel malt. Flavour is quite hot, with loads of tropical fruits, alcohol, and enough caramel malt backing. Boozy, fruity and malty, but it works quite well, at least in small pours. Very good.
