16 oz. can - beautiful red-orange-copper pour, ridiculously clear, fluffy full white head, gorgeous lacing. Intoxicating hoppy aromas on the nose, floral notes, sticky resin and pine... Wonderful smooth palate with a tangy bittering finish. Truly excellent and a delightful beer. Gee whiz!!!

Hoptastic aroma. Copper colored. Heavy hop flavor. Bit of a bitter aftertaste. Good IPA, not great.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tall Boy can from Downer Wine & Spirits. Pours a deep, amber color with a white head and nice lacing. Aroma is hoppy, pine, onion, garlic. Medium on the palate with soft carbonation. Flavor is bitter, hoppy, pine, onion, nice malt backbone, and a nice bitter hop finish. Seems very much like a blend of Dale’s and Gubna. Good, but not great for me.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very piny resinous hops on the nose! Very hop forward, piney resinous hops, very dank, finishes a little sweet though, but the hop flavor upfront is nice.

Draft. Amber pour, off-white head, some retention/good lace. Aroma of pine, citrus, dank, earth. Taste is very bitter, pine/resin/citrus hops, caramel malt. Palate is oily, average carbonation, light warmth. Pretty similar to Dale’s pale.

UPDATED: APR 18, 2013 Tall boy can, how ’bout that. Heavy almost oily like pine nose. This is big. Complex mix of candy malts with heavy resinous hop flavors of grapefruits. Peppery burn with dry finish. This is good! Will buy more.

Whole Foods, P st, DC 4-pack ($14): Ok, aside of the fact that this four pack of pounders was rather ridiculously overpriced, this is a good beer. In fact, it reminds me a lot of Heady Topper. The pours is quite nice: large white head with a nice copper body. Aroma is very floral, but there is also some fruitiness, and not too much malt. Taste actually has a malt backbone appear, which gives this beer a nice mild sweetness. There is a good amount of bitterness in here, but this is not so brutal as to impede drinking. Excellent for sure.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly hazy orange pour. Big rocky head with tons of lacing. Massive crown. Looks quite nice in the glass. Since it was mentioned to me, all I can smell is onion. Sweet candy malt mixing with hop resin and stone fruit. Does have that sharp onion character, accentuated by te bitterness, but is more than just that. Peach, orange, apricot, strawberry, grapefruit, watermelon. Has some of that same soapy character I like in Dales Pale. It gives the beer real texture and dimension. Bitterness is serious, but really grows out of the finish. Up front is nothing but sweetness and hop flavor. Pretty stern malt backbone, but with even bigger hops on top of it. Not a west coast IPA, really it’s own thing. Really good, though.
