3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Best before 7/7/13. Gorgeous pour: slightly hazy gold with copious amounts of white head. Sticky lace, stubborn retention.
Fresh hop aroma, mildly spiced, creamy malt to finish. But the malt is surprisingly absent on the palate, replaced by fresh, piny hops and resin. Label claims peachy fruits, yet none are present. This is a hop bomb start to finish; more of an imperial single IPA than a true DIPA.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours gold-orange with an ENORMOUS head that sits around a very long time. Wonderfully aromatic blend of floral and sundry orange fruits with a hint of malt. Flavor is similar - lots of fruit sweetness up front followed with a surprisingly mellow malt finish. Bitterness and alcohol are there, but they arenít overwhelming. Very tasty DIPA! I see it has a lot of mixed reviews, but a guy at my local craft store raved about it when I purchased it, so we must be getting some nice fresh bombers of this in SW MO, because I think itís great as well.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aromas of bread, pine sol and citrus. The body is dominated by an almost medicinal pine flavor that isnít altogether unpleasant, just very powerful, leaving only a supporting role for the citrusy tangerine and graprefuit notes that might otherwise shine through. Oily texture, finishing with extremely bitter, vegetal hops that end this brew aggressively. Certainly not striving for finesse, which I can respect, but this isnít even slightly sessionable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear honey color with a soapy white head. Aromas is pine sol and citrus. Flavor is a good bit of the same but it doesnít seem really much of a DIPA, just an extra hoppy IPA. Fruit character is bland and there isnít really any malt character either. Overall not bad but nothing really impressive.

Pours a light amber with a fluffy white head. Aroma of grassy hops, some citrus. Taste is pretty smooth with good malt, definite hop spice. Pretty nice palate for how bitter it is.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: MAY 5, 2013 Pours a clear pale gold with mostly lasting head and good lacing. Aroma is a little malt, moderate hops, and some earthy sawdust. Taste is sweet, then right into a strong and slightly offensive pine resin taste, with earth and dust that isnít assisted by the extremely dry palate. The dust subsides in the aftertaste, leaving behind a hint of malt/hop balance, but a little too bitter and dry for my liking. Way too many better DIPAs out there to seek this out again.

Bottle. Pours a clear light orange color with a big foamy head that fades very slowly. The nose is mosiac hops and nothing else. The body is light, and the flavor bitter and dry. I didnít particularly care for the meld of these flavors.
