4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 1pt. 6oz bottle into a tulip glass. The label lists the abv at 8%. There is no freshness date.
Appearance: The body has a deep coppery amber color with a light haze. Its head rose up tall, thick and clingy. It had a light tan color and great retention. This all made for nice sticky lacing on the glass.
Smell: There is a bold mix of floral/citrusy hops and sweet malt with a hint of butterscotch and dark fruit.
Taste/Palate: It has a firm foundation of sweet fruity, bready and caramel maltiness with a slight touch of butterscotch. Blending into this is a firm backing of pungent floral citrus and earthy hop bitterness. It finishes with a sticky hop bitterness clinging to the palate. It feels firm and full bodied with just enough carbonation to keep it moving easily over the tongue.
Notes: This is definitely a well made and very enjoyable beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft @ J. Ryan’s. Dark Brown with solid lace. Nose is malt with a slight nutty tone. Flavor is lots of malt. Caramel, toffee with a English Earthy malt feel. Very light citrus hop in the finish. Sweeter rather then malty. Texture is creamy and really smooth. Malt forward here. ABV is completely hidden. I really enjoyed sipping this. I had to remind myself that it is 8%. Drinks like a 5% brew. Really decent. Not really sure how this is an DIPA??? The CD even says its a Strong Ale? Ok... Style lines get fuzzy.

Pours a deep red birch beer color with a healthy white head. Aroma is malt, slight hop presence. Taste is citrusy hop, slight astringency, malt, smooth bittering with a dry finish. Might need a drink of water after a few of these.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
650 ml bottle. Thanks to Coldbrewky.
Dark cloudy reddish with a ridiculously big fluffy tan head.
The aroma is caramel sweetness, dark berries, dark fruits, plums and dark malt. The flavour is quite strong with alcohol. Dark fruits, dark malt, mild bitterness, some sugary sweetness and alcohol in the flavour. Drinkable but not that tasty.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark brown body, huge khaki head. Aroma has caramel cookie dough and some nice hops, some really nice yeast. Flavour is really alcoholic and quite harsh dark malty. Hops from aroma are missing. Some fruits, raisins, dates, etc. Way too heavy for me.
