Big and bold with really bright floral and ends with some tropical notes. Pretty drinkable for a 9.5% big boy.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
16oz can thanks to Ed. I rated thus yesterday but it didn’t save for some reason WTF Joe T fix this for me would ya. Poured an opaque orange-amber with a foamy off white head. Aroma/flavor of tropical fruits, apricot, mango, green onion, garlic, caramel malts and grains. Medium body with decent alcohol heat throughout. Palate could be a bit smoother.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
16oz can picked up from the brewery thanks to my mom! Pours a slightly hazy golden orange color with a small foamy white head. Aroma of sweet tropical fruit, caramel malt, and hints of piney hops and grass. Taste is much the same. More pine than in the aroma and some alcohol burn in the finish. Solid DIPA overall

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at brewery. Served in a small glass reminiscent of those we all stole from the University dining hall back in the day. I once had a service for 6. Amber gold in the glass. Thin white head that disappears quickly....as did the beer. Moderate malt nose. Low but sturdy nose of hop. Maybe it was the high ceilings, or the rainy day next to the Hudson river that kept the nose down. Whatever the reason, I enjoyed this beer as its body undulated from hop to malt and back to hop. Gone too soon. I have a feeling that I will be stopping back for a few growler fills after work.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draft at brewery. Smells a bit sweet, some malt, a little pine. Nice on the tongue with a sweet malt backbone balanced by a semi bitter piney hop character. Considerably well balanced and very enjoyable.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Randolph Beer, Soho New York. Hoppy aroma of wet grass, pine. Slightly cloying flavor that initially disrupted my enjoyment of the beer. A little harder to enjoy than I'd like. Nice hop finish once you get past the pucker.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draft. Brewery lists ABV at 9.5%. Aroma of chocolate and fruit. Surprisingly pale. Flavors of chocolate, faint cherry, peach, apricot. Smooth finish. Fine, fine beer. A little more complexity and it?d be a stat.
