3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
orange with large white head. nose of oxidized citrus and herbal hops. firm bitterness before touches of low crystal sweetness o perhaps munich malt before solid citrus and herbal hop flavors that are slightly muted with age. the beer shows little alcohol presence and has a relatively dry finish for the abv. overall a pretty traiditional double ipa that at its prime would probably be solid but not spectacular and now is below average

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy bright brown with a rocky cap floating on top. Orange zest, almost but not fuzzy peach, leathery, and spice show up in the nose. Nose finishes in a lemon lime. Lemon lime really show up in the taste, finishes with a massive in your face bitter. Wood, leathery malts.................. so very smooth. Goes down fast. A smoky peat finds its way into the finish. Why can’t I have neighbors who do home brew like this.

A heavy hitter...pours a bright glowing orange with a fizzy off yellow head. The nose is fresh and fruity with hugw grapefruit and tropical notes. Quite resinous and bitter in the mid palate with a plethura of pine and grapefruit. Bitter on the finish with big lingering hops.

500ml bottle pours a golden orange color with a finger and a half of white head with good retention, but leaving only a few spots of lacing. Aroma is grapefruit and pine with some hints of caramel. Taste is a grapefruit and pine hop bitterness with a fruity and caramel malty sweetness. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. A very well done DIPA that I thoroughly enjoyed and recommend to others.
