3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Moylan’s. Slight haze copper orange golden with sticky head/lacing. Aggressive bitter piney astringent hop forward, some peach fruitiness, also earthy tones and noticable, but faint, malt bill that adds a touch of sweetness to balance the hops. Very bitter up front, astringent, some malt sweetness comes in in the mid palate but finishes with enamel ripping bitterness.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at source. A pure orange hops come smoothie aroma. Very clear pale orange with a small white head. Taste is initially strong in alcohol and a sweet honey malt flavor. Hop presence is moderate in flavor but seemingly overwhelmed by the malt sweetness and alcohol warming.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared in London - cheers to Daniel. Pours lightly hazy orange-gold with a frothy, off-white head. The nose holds pine, bread, toasted grains, ripe citrus, crackers. Medium to big sweet flavor with obvious alcohol, more crackery malts, lightly faded pine, bread, orange peel. Full bodied, oily, with fine carbonation. Warming finish with some piney bitterness, crusty toast, citrus rind, more alcohol. A somewhat heavy handed DIPA that’s perhaps not at its freshest. So so.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared at Craft Beer Co. 10/09/2015. Many thanks to Daniel for this one. Aroma is earthydank, semi-sweet sticky resin, caramel malts and pine needles. Translucent golden with a sticky off white head. Flavour is dirty earthy pine, caramel, resinous hops and a touch of farmyard in the finish. Palate is chewy, semi-sweet, highish carbonation. Aggressive bitterness: too big for me.
