Can sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks David Cohen. Slightly hazy amber. Lovely hoppy aroma full of tropical fruits and some pine needles. Great fruity hoppy flavor, dry-ish with just light sweetness and a pleasant, lingering, moderately bitter finish. Medium-bodied. A great IPA!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks a bunch to Terminus for picking this one up for me. Pours clear copper / orange with a rocky beige head. The aroma has sweet toasty malt, earth, spice hops and a bit of cleaner. This is overall pretty malt forward for an IIPA. Medium / full body thatís a bit slick and rich with soft carbonation. The flavor starts with the sweet malt from the aroma along with spicy / piny hops along with some mint. The finish has more abv presence than most 8% beers and has a dirty and earthy flavor that sticks with me. Decent, but not up to expectations.

I like it. Vibrant burst of resiny spicy and fruity hops in the nose, flavor is spicy hops, grapefruit rind, malt doesnít get in the way, bitter but semi-balanced finish. Large foaming tan head over a dark red-copper colored beer.

Had this at the Brooklyn Beerfest and brought a bunch of cans home. Very good, citrus, pine, and something sweet, maybe fruit of some sort. This isnít just Daleís Pale Ale with some extra hops thrown in, itís a good beer in its own right.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Strong, hoppy aroma has a firm underpinning of sour citrus, equal parts grapefruit and orange. It pours a clear coppery amber with a thick, fluffy and rather persistent ivory head. Flavor is not just hoppy, but downright evergreen with a grapefruit undertone, rather bitter but not fiercely so. Texture has firm body and a good amount of fizz. Pack this one in!

On tap at Dexters in Madison, pours a clear dark golden with a sticky white head and nice lacing, the aroma has a good amount of grapefruit and tropical fruit, the flavor has a nice hop front with a smooth finish and some citrus as well, nice mouthfeel, a little too dank for my liking but I wouldnít turn down another if it was given to me.

The aroma is very nice with tones of hops with citrus and pine. The malt is present in a major way. The appearance is amber gold with a medium head. The taste is bitter. The palate is thin. Overall itís interesting but not great.

Excellent aroma with strong fruity aroma and a nice hop punch. The palate is smooth but has a very astringent that is too strong. Very strong flaws but great beer.
