4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours from 12 o bottle a clear dark reddish copper with a very thin, off white head. Aroma malt forward, sweet, grassy, lightly vegital hop matter, tangerine, resin and lightly dank. Some dried fruit character and floral notes. Flavour of toffee, mango. grapefruit, apricot, tea leaf and orange are tamed by a lingering finish of mint, evergreen resin with wet Irish field grass. Superb beer, recommend.

Mycket sötma i aromen, lite blommig. Tycker sötman balanseras upp bra av en kraftig beska som sitter kvar länge.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
On draught at the brewpub. Aromas of alcohol and massive malt. Clear brushed-gold/copper with off-white head. Taste is cloying malt - viscous and like tree sap. No hops detectable. If I was expecting an old ale, i might feel differently, but was looking forward to a DIPA and this one misses the boat.

From the bottle. Think white head. Aroma is grassy and some wet hop. Flavor is similar, really grassy. Much different take on dipa. I felt like my first instinct was the warrior hop. Overall good beer, napa Smith never disappoints.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A golden DIPA with a thin white head. In aroma, sweet fruity malt with orange pulp, floral hops, doughy and creamy notes, OK. In mouth, a overly sweet caramel malt with floral hops, light menthol, orange pulp, OK for the style. On tap at Brew Hub Lakeland.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma invades your nostrils with spicy pine notes and heavy malt. The flavor is wet and grassy, touches of dried apricots and sweet ripe oranges. Napa Smith has a really heavy, sweet malt profile on all their beers (that I´ve tried) and that’s not a good thing, but here in this badass it works perfect. It is almost chewy and a bit oily.
