3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours amber with a hoppy, citrus aroma. Good hoppy flavor with citrus and interesting sweet berry flavors. Alcohol is not well hidden though and it outshines the other flavors a bit. Overall, a good D.I.P.A with a high alcohol kick.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
22 oz. bottle from Total Wine (North Hills), Raleigh, NC. Murky dark orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of grapefruit rind, tangerine, and pine. Awesome, super hoppy and malty flavor of grapefruit, brown sugar, pineapple, caramel, and wet grass. While plenty hoppy, this beer offers a considerable amount of malt and is nearly reminiscent of a barleywine. Exceptional.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Taster at Whole Lotta Brews Going On at Whole Foods in Folsom. Aroma and flavor is mostly grassy and piney hops that hold up after 10 beers at a brewfest. Good palate. Just not my bag, not exciting. Good beer though.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours clear amber with an off-white head. Aroma is super piney with resin, dried apricot, and citrusy esters. Taste is pine, grapefruit, mandarin, slight grainy malt, more citrus esters. A little boozy. Smooth, fine carbonation and medium-full bodied. Finishes with astringent palate-drying bitterness.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bottle, discounted from Party Source. Shared with friends. Clear orange amber color. Thin, sort of bubbly off-white head. Decent ropes and bits of lace. Bigger body. Lighter carbonation. Lightly sticky / syrupy. Caramel, spicy malt. Some spicy hop. Just a hint of citrus. Spicy taste, moderate bitter. Some alcohol heat. Alright, but not great.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Amber with a thick off white head. Heavy pine resin aroma. Huge malt body with a balancing citrusy hop bitterness. Wow, this is truly impressive and, if I may be so bold, puts Pliny the Elder in the rear view mirror.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nothing bad but nothing special. Pleasant hoppy nose, the same with the taste with a bit of peach but nothing really pops out and says anything special. Good but will probably not get another bottle.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 22oz. It pours a hazy, dark orange-golden body under a big, off-white head. Some lacings. Quite intensely hoppy aroma, with green pine cones, grapefruit and a little malty touch. A good dash of malty sweetness in the flavor, but thereís plenty of bitterness to deal with it. Grapefruit, pine cones and citrus fruit in the flavor. Full body, still feeling almost watery on the palate, adding to the drinkability of the beer. Pleasant carbonation, and a lasting finish with the bitterness and hoppy flavors dominating. A really pleasant one. 130822
