Tap at Rattle’N’Hum, NYC, 20/05/13.
Hazed golden amber with a thin off white head that retains well.
Nose is light hops, sweaty socks, citrus, touch of spice, bitter orange.

Full end of medium body, fine carbonation, hop bitterness in the finish.
Ok - but at the lower end of the spectrum for a DIPA!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle: hazy amber pour with thin beige head. Aroma is hoppy with overripe citrus and toffee. Flavor is muddled with grapefruit, overripe apricot, caramel, bread, yeast and some oxidation. This beer might well be past its prime, there is no crisp citrus/pine hop character and it is dominated by bready caramel with a bitter bite, not horrible, just not great.

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 don’t stamp a date on there that makes any sense, so I’m guessing this bottle could have sat on the shelf for a while.
