3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bottle poured into a tulip glass. Pours bright golden yellow with medium head, although quite a bit of sediment as the last sip poured much darker, more of a golden amber. Aroma is sharp piney hops with a bit of sweetness in the background. Taste is sweet thick caramel malt followed immediately by big bitter hops. Nice pine and citrus notes. Quite strong tasting for such a (relatively) low abv. Not as balanced as some of the better DIPAs, but solid. Reasonably priced too.

Pours a muddy copper with minimal head. Aroma is rather muted, with some hop pine and spruce. Flavor is very bitter with some hop bite. Not a lot of citrus or tropical fruit. Kind of a disappointment.

Jaune brumeux avec une petite robe blanche. L’arôme est du pin et agrumes. En bouche c’est d’abord un peu sucré puis une amertume forte avec une finition assez sec. Très bonne.

Taste of pine, rotted citrus zest, caramel malt, and grass. Don’t see a bottled on date. Seems a little past its prime perhaps.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle to snifter, thick honey-gold pour with top-notch head retention.
Aroma is huge; sticky passion fruit, a viscous Simcoe pine, sugar, over-ripe fruit, an indescribable prickly earth against the sweetness. Smells so familiar yet can’t put a name to it.
Taste is a massive and round citrus with a sticky, sappy pine. Fairly big mouthfeel, borderline raisiny, even some barleywine notes picked up. Strawberry hints linger among the resinous finish.
