4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Vintage 2011. The hop aroma is fresh, citrus grapefruit, bitter pine hops and baked bread toffee malt, bittersweet malt finish. Well balanced and fresh aroma in a 2011 bottling. Ages well. Would love to try this fresh.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Great palate, aromatic but the hop nose doesn’t follow through as much as I expected in the mouth. No alcohol noticeable which is surprising at 9.4%.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
The aroma is crisp & herbal, with hints of almond, and almost a fresh cut minty smell. The taste gives white pepper, pecan, white grape skin, and some orange zest. The aftertaste is nicely grassy with hints of sweet caramel, and a dry finish. Nicely done -- this is a solid and very tasty DIPA.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Foamy, cloudy copper with a head that dies quickly. Grapefruit aroma punch in the face.
Very bitter with a very bitter aftertaste, but the aftertaste dies quickly. High alcohol is virtually undetectable. Finish is surprisingly dry with pine nuts and slight caramel. On tap @ 3 Cellars in Franklin, Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
