2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours light orange, hazed...with a short tan head.
A slightly musty cardboard aroma, must be the elaborate mix of hops or age....
Taste is caramel, dusty, dull fruit.
Not thrilled with it.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Five Points Bottle Shop (Atlanta Highway) in Athens. Dark sugary aroma, some oxidation? Coppery-brown, with a light tan head. Very sweet initial, and some rotten fruit off flavors / gets even sweeter in mid, and the rot is still there / some minor bitterness in final. Medium body. This is pretty bad. Something perhaps way off here.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a hazy deep orange, kind of almost murky looking with a large foamy slightly off white head that left sticky lacing. Aroma of orange peel, dark fruits and caramel. Flavor of pine, orange peel, a bit yeasty, earthy...lots of earthy notes actually. Aggresive bitterness, piney needles. Overall a bit muddled. They donít stamp a date on there that makes any sense, so Iím guessing this bottle could have sat on the shelf for a while.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz served in a snifter. Poured a very hazy orange-amber with a small off-white head. Head has decent retention. Trace of sediment in bottom of bottle. Feels relatively creamy and full for a 8% ABV brew. Medium carbonation. Smells of resinous and citrusy hops, but a bit subtle compared to the bold taste, with hints of herbs and baked bread. Tastes of citrusy and herbal hops with traces of orange. Rather complex hop mix but not quite as hoppy as expected for an Amer. DIPA. Significant levels of sweet and caramel malt to balance the bitter hops. Only moderately bitter and hoppy after-taste. 8% ABV is largely hidden.
O - A well-crafted, flavorful DIPA; an excellent sipper that is more refreshing than challenging.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Savannah, Ga - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - 12 oz bottle. Murky medium orange pour, sticky white head that leaves a nice coat of lacing. Aroma has a hint of spruce, some crystal malt. Flavor has some citrus bitter notes, some muddled homebrew crystal malt, a bit of nuttiness. A hint of vanilla in the back end. Mouthfeel has a nice thickness to it. Needs a bit of refinement.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Delicious! Pours a nice amber, with just a touch of haze. Creamy head, nice lacing. As expected of an imperial IPA, lots of hops going on here, but not overbearing. Nicely bodied without being heavy, this is very drinkable. Easy finish, not dry at all.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Vons. Fairly well hopped nose. Some pine. Hopped flavor. Has a solid malty flavor to it. Solid bitterness, with a sort of a dry and slightly peppered taste. Some grapefruit in the finish. Finish doesnít linger long.
