3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a bottle into a snifter. Pours a red copper clear body with a large light tan head. Mango, peach, strawberries. Very sweet, oily, mild bitterness, soft carbonation, some butter. Lingering candy sweetness on the palate with the back of the tongue dry, grapefruit. Too sweet, maybe a bit of diacetyl, on the verge of delicious.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a white head that dissipates to the edges and laces. Aroma has a light citrus note with a bit of mild grassy hops, some sweet grains and a touch of caramel. Flavor has more of an aggressive pine note with a bit of resin, citrus and a grain backbone.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (bottled a week ago). Pours a clear copper color. Really no hop aroma to speak of; need to struggle to find mango. Strong bitterness; a nice malty backbone underneath. Medium bodied with a strong bitter finish. Pleasant enough for one who enjoys a strong, bitter DIPA, but this is really not a very interesting beer. Could use more flavor & aroma hops, to be sure.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle. golden with small head. in general i’ve found odd side beers to be well above average, but this disappoints a bit. boozy dipa with big bitter hops. still, at worst it’s average -- i just have come to expect far more from this brewery.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
pours hazy light golden with a thin off-white cap showing some retention and lacing. mangoes, melons, pineapple, barley sugar and other plain sugars, touch of caramel, very doughy and heavy cereals, citrus, pine, grass, booze - tingling pepper and mint. moderately low carbonation, medium body - oily and sticky, relatively sweet piney-spicy-citrusy finish. nice aroma at first whiff but turns out to be a mix of booze, caramel and barley sugar or learn how to be a hobo.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Shared 12 oz. bottle, poured to snifters displaying a cloudy, orangey amber color, with a modest layer of off white foam that reduced to a thin ring & film, leaving light spots of lacing. The nose was a touch of syrupy sweetness, ripened pit fruit, with a slight, musty hint, and ready alcohol. The taste continued with the fruit & syrup, spiced by a moderate, citrusy bitterness, as the alcohol brought forth some decent warmth. Not a DIPA to be reckoned with, but okay.
