Cask at RnH. Pours a clear orange with a thin white head. Aroma of acetone, hop oils, sweet caramel malt. Flavor of sweet caramel malt, citrusy fruits, hop oils, grassy hops. Pretty strong with alcohol dominant. Just ok.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The beer is a copper-orange color with a medium foamy off-white head that dissipates slowly to a film. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrusy hops, malt and caramel. Medium body with flavors of piney hops, citrus and grainy malt, plus a bit of tropical fruit. The finish is hoppy with a grapefruit and caramel aftertaste. Above average overall.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Taste is almost tart, with a bitterness appearing late in the very thick offering which hides the alcohol well. Overdoses the tastebuds a bit. Definitely something which may have a one or two per session limit both for it’s high alcohol and overwhelming taste.

Pours orange amber with a white head that quickly dissipated to a film. Aroma is florals, pine, citrus and just a hint of caramel. Taste is bittersweet with the bitterness lingering on the.finish. Slick mouthfeel with medium body. Alcohol is hidden well. Overall I enjoyed the bitters and how they stuck around.

Pours a clear dark golden yellow with a thin fizzy white head and good lacing. Aroma is big pine hops and sweet hop. Taste is a beautiful blast of pine hops, great bitterness and sweet malts that balance this out. Great beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle in a snifter. Pours copper with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma strong of citrusy/piney hops plus some caramel and light cereal malts. Flavor about the same, but it seems lighter on the hops than the aroma suggests. Average texture. A decent beer, but not the best of the style.

Nice double IPA from this smal brewery. Sticky and sweet with a taste that lingers. Good hop array, nice beer.

Hazy orange with a medium white head. A lot of pine and caramel, light touch of red fruits. Quite bitter ending.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is floral and citrus hops. Full bodied and sticky feeling. Very sweet malt base, with floral and fruity hop bitterness. Pineapple, mango, apricot flavors. The finish is big and powerful, slightly medicinal, with a nice hoppy bitterness, but a little too sweet, and it takes away from the hop character.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is a plethora of fruitiness, citrus, grapefruit, and slight orange with a small piney background. Appearance is a darkened gold and gives a medium white head. Taste is quite earthy with a nice hoppy bitterness to it. There is a very satisfying fruity finish that leaves a creamy aftertaste. Overall, this is a very satisfying beer with an explosion of powerful flavors. The hops are nicely balanced with a perfect amount of light fruity taste. I’d give this an A rating.
