3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. It pours a light hazyness, golden-orange in color and with a dense, finger-thick off-white head. The aroma is very piney and grapefruity, with a maltyness in the back. Candy hints. Lots of bitterness in the mouth, with some malty sweetness joining in. Full body and a pleasant carbonation. Lasting bitter finish with grapefruit peel and resins. After a while I sort of get used to the bitterness level, but it’s too bitter anyway. 141219

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A: The pour is a nice golden color with a big slightly off-white head and some mild lacing.
S: The hops are certainly present on the nose with some nice citrus and pine notes. Also a fair amount of alcohol and (as pointed out by Bobby) fish food.
T: Certainly a very bitter IPA with lots of pine and citrus, to a lesser extent. Again, the alcohol presence is pronounced, a bit too much for my liking.
M: The body is medium to heavy for an IPA with a moderate carbonation.
D: I can’t say this beer is bad, because I did enjoy it somewhat. But, it was more just bitter without much else going on.

Bottle shared with alexsdad06. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy complex resin citrus hop aroma. Moderate to heavy bitter flavor with a moderate to heavy bitter finish of moderate to long duration. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation and soft alcohol bite at the finish. Standout brew.

On tap at PP SC. Hazed amber orange pour with a lasting white head. Aroma of citrus, orange, caramel and raisins. Flavors are a bit too malty for my taste. Alcohol, orange, grainy, caramel. Bitter. Okay. Medium bubbles. Not super dry.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bomber pours clear copper with a near white head of foam. The aroma has a mix of thick malts, resiny hops, a bit of grapefruit and a bit of sweet citrus hard candy. The taste delivers plenty of resiny hop goodness in the form of firm pine hops and slivers of grapefruit and tangelo citrus hops. It has both resiny bitter hops and smooth hop flavor. Nice stuff.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle, thanks to alexsdad06 for sharing. Mildly hazy amber color. Thin off-white head, leaves good ropes of lace. Great, big resiny hop flavor. Grapefruit, nice big resiny hop. Very tasty. Some light toasty malt, hint of caramel. Nice, distinct biscuity flavor. Good bigger bitter taste, light sweet. Just a very light, nice hoppy heat towards the finish. Super smooth, lighter carbonation. Lightly slick. Bigger body. Very satisfying DIPA.
