On tap at the ’13 Cincy Beerfest. Golden amber color with a thin off white head. Nose of yeast and orange peel. Flavors of grassy hops with some coarse bread, grapefruit rind, leather and earthy tones. Long finish of composted grapefruit rinds. Lots of hop flavors but not my favorite.

This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foamy finely sized bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a hazy dark orange colored body and an excellent lacing. The mild aroma was hoppy. The thick mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a strong hoppy aftertaste. The deep flavor contained notes of hops. A wonderful best in class brew. An excellent example of an I2PA.

Draft at the source. Clear golden color, thick white head, solid lacing. Aroma of wet grass and subtle scallions. Taste is bitter grass and a hint of fruit and licorice. Very nice start to a weekend beer trip!

This was definitely on the maltier end of DIPAs, very sweet and rich, with a lot of hops. The Bride said that it tasted like Fall, which I kinda get. Smooth, sweet and almost decadent. I liked it...

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle. Clear amber with a thick, foamy, beige head and some lacing. Aroma of pine, caramel, lemon, herbal tea and toast. Flavor is toasty malt, medium hop bitterness, fruity yeast esters and no alcohol presence. Medium body with soft carbonation. Nice IIPA, seems more on the English style but really good.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber thanks to queenholly, pours a murky copper/orange with small white head. Aroma is yeasty and heavy on toffee malts. Taste has a bite hop spice into caramel and toffee malts with some bitterness and light citrus. An English IPA with almost a barley wine flavor. A bit lacking on hops however.
