3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz bottle from Liquor Barrel. Cloudy, dark orange pour with a fluffy two finger head. Hoppy (citrus) aroma slightly malty. Flavor is very hoppy with some citrus notes and a malty backbone, pretty bitter. Mouthfeel is thick and chewy with a bitter finish.

12 oz bottle...a rather piney DIPA with some decent hop notes and complex and well balanced maltiness.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured cloudy copper color from 12 oz bottle. Aroma is caramel sweetness with little hop scent. Taste is like eating caramel candies, butterscotch mixed with pungent hops. Palate is medium and finish is dry. Overall a unique tasting iipa. I prefer citrus and more bitter tastes in a iipa but that being said a decent brew.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Ruby amber pour, warm orange highlights and topped with a creamy, one-finger, off-white head from the bomber courtesy of dkachur (thanks, Dan!): Nose of orange marinade, summery citrus (lemon) oils, honeydew, herbs, toffee, maple syrup, bran flakes, and buttered toast, all backed by solid caramel malts. Taste is similar, surprisingly spicy at that first second, but carefully blending into a smooth, thick resinous feel. Medium-bodied, mildly carbonated. A bit too syrupy sweet at times, but that can be overlooked. Itís an enjoyable brew. Drinkability: Bold notes, nothing hidden. Pairing: Beefsteak burger, lots of cajun garlic fries. Rebuy: Probably. #462 on 12062010, DG.

12 oz bottler. Pours a copper color with a soapy white head. Aroma of pine and citrus hops. Taste is just like nose. Citrus and pine with a subtle caramel to balance. Nice Imperial. Not as bitter as the nose would lead to believe. Dry citrus rindy finish.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a transparent orange-amber with a sizable light tan head. Assertive citrus and some piney hop aroma. Syrupy, with a strong malt flavor, which to me somewhat undermines the hop flavor. The alcohol flavor is a little too noticeable for my taste.

2010 Bottle. Nice sweet smell well balanced with citrus. Sweet a bit of caramel? Nice bit really fresh taste even after being a year old. Wish I had another bottle.
