3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
29th December 2011
Very hazy dark amber beer. Big off white head. The head tastes of dark toffee and citrus and pine hops. Palate is softish and semi dry. Creamy malt, still with the dark toffee. Seamlessly integrated with pleasant citrus pine hops. Trace of red berry fruits. Trace of aniseed. Soft finish. Very drinkable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Poured clear light copper color with an average to large frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy complex hop aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bitter hop flavor with a medium to heavy bitter finish of moderate to long duration. This is a good beer that exceeded my expectations.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer is a reddish-amber color with a medium white head that diminishes steadily. Rings of lacing on the glass. Fruity hops in the note along with notes of sweet malt. Medium body with a citrusy hops character and flavors of grainy malt and pine in the background. The finish is moderately bitter with a lingering grapefruity hops aftertaste. Straightforward, well-made IIPA all around.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle thanks to Sean! Pours a clear deep amber with a white head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has a decent amount of grassy and floral hops with a bit of grapefruit and backing sweet grains. Flavor starts smooth with grapefruit and floral hops but transitions to more of a bitter grapefruit finish.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle, bottled 10/23/12. A wet-hopped double IPA? Sounds awesome. Mostly hazy red-orange color. Big foamy dense off-white head. Good lace. Looks great. Hoppy nose. Super dank, resiny aroma. Piney, big bitter taste. Very light caramel malts. Smooth, lighter carbonation. Bigger body, not sticky or syrupy. More of a clean, dry finish, but with a big resiny hop aftertaste. Yeah, I went through these 12 fluid ounces way too quickly. Definitely going to pick up a couple more of these, if I can. This stuff is great.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle from Dutch’s. Pours a clear amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have a nice resiny, mild citrus and earthy hop character, some toasted malt, very light caramel. The bottle says 8% while this lists 9%, either way it is easy to drink and I don’t get much alcohol. I sometimes overlook these, but many are pretty tasty solid beers.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle to snifter. This year’s batch is listed as 8% on the bottle. Looks good; a transparent orange with foamy off-white head. Smells solid; a somewhat bitter hop profile with a pale malt backbone. Tastes like it smells with a nice, smoo mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle sample at the wet hop tasting at Blacklick Wine & Spirits on 10/23/14. Clear amber in color with a medium beige head. Aroma of malt and earthy hops. Malty flavor with slight booze before a grassy and earthy hop finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clear golden orange with a large beige soapy head. The aroma has powder/perfume hops, light toast to the malt, caramel sweetness and soft citrus. It has a fairly full body with a moderate amount of carbonation. The flavor starts with lots of sweet rich caramel malt, mustiness, grapefruit, earth and floral hops. The finish dries out and has lots of pine, but the sweet rich malt is still big. There is a lingering resin. Interesting.
