3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
From this fairly simplistic and agressively coloured label, unveils a generous white tower that remains above the clear golden liquid from which emanates a rather complex hop aroma if not particularly bright and accompanied by more alcohol than Iíd expected. The hops go from tropical fruits (litchee, citrus, pineapple even), especially.as the beer i just coming out of the cellar to a more woodsy and resinous profile as it warms and opens up. The supporting malt profile is, I must say, attractive enough. Bold enough for a double ipa and not without a caramel suggestion, but mostly bready and never chewy nor even really sweet, albeit the bitterness with a punch uppercuts through the latter swiftly. It makes for a neat mouthfeel. Anyway, the malt profile is clean and agreeable, supporting he hops nicely, though while aromatic enough, those are leaning even more toward the bitterness side of the spectrum. The finish lingers for a while, being all about bitterness: both leafy and sappy, tannic even.

22oz bottle pours a slightly hazy pale amber color with a good amount of head. Hoppy yeasty aromas. Very full hop flavor but noticeable alcohol.

Taste very oxidized, cardboardy, old fruit, bitter grapefruit, caramel, and stale malt. Medium body with high carbonation. Way past itís prime.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Review number 350! 22 oz bomber poured into my ipa glass. Pours a light aber color with a thick fluffy off white head that leaves great lacing. Smell of Pine, citrus and caramel. Tastes of all the same things with the hops being the forefront of this beer but also carmely malt there. Mouthfeel is light and creamy with great carbonation. Ií now know why their beer is kind of spendy but its worth every penny to be honest. This beer is definetly for the hop heads. Also had a nice light summer feel for a dipa as well, very well crafted.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle shared with a friend who just came back from the brewery where he got this. No idea how old this is but considering they still had their Christmas DIPA for sale, Iím not holding my breath for freshness. Pours a light yellow to slight orange. Aroma is tangerine and some hay with a slight malty dank thing going on. taste is more malty at first but that quickly goes away. Not bad but nothing I need to seek out unless this is really old.

3.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Quite possibly the best smelling beer ever. It has a sweet aroma a tangerine and apricot. A somewhat cloudy gold appearance and a scorchin hop flavor.
