3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
651 ml. bottle. The label reads keep refrigerated, but it was bought off the shelf. How long was it there? Pours a medium, well retained, off white head, over a clear, medium amber (SRM 12) body....nose is treacle, soft fruits with hints of peach, mango, light pine, resin.....taste is sweet toffee tones, with hints of light fruit leading to a heavy citrus hop bitter finish.....mouth feel medium, sticky, slightly astringent, alcohol warmth present, carbonation low but with a moderate acid finish. This I/DIPA has light complexity in the hop aromas, and the taste is dominated by the hop bitterness. The malt backbone is simple and adds little to the beer. As it warms, the balance becomes better with the simple malty pushing back. It still needs work. BJCP 7/3/12/4/6

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, 12oz. A hazy, golden beer with some micro floaties, topped by a dense, off-white head. Sweetish nose with fruityness. Orange, too much crystal malts, some cheesy notes and a touch of sugar in the aroma. Full body, almost sticky on the palate. Oranges, sweetness, crystal malt and some generic fruityness in the flavor. Too low on bitterness compared to the sweetness. Lasting sweet and finally bitter finish. Sort of disappointing considering where it’s from. 130810

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours hazy orange with a fleeting sudsy white head. Malty aroma with a touch of alcohol. Sweet malty flavor with a bit of a hop finish, but not as much as I’d expect from a double IPA. Nothing particularly wrong with it... just underwhelming.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a cloudy amber, with little head. Aroma includes rather muted hops, malt, and floral notes. Flavor is primarily notable for the hops, but there’s a lot of sweetness there, too, in the malt undertones. Tropical fruitiness and citrus notes abound. Very full, resinous mouthfeel. Finish is rather bittersweet. Alcohol content is well hidden.
