3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured into a Duvel tulip from a 16 ounce can canned on 3-20-2012.
A: Crystal clear dark amber body with a decent sized light tan rocky head.
S: Bitter citrus and pine hops.
T: Bready malts with a slightly peppery citrus up-front with a grapefruit and pine bite. Definitely a hop lover’s beer.
M: Medium bodied with fizzy carbonation finishing sharp.
O: Solid IPA (or is it a IIPA?) showcasing hops, but not much of anything else.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aromas of citrus and pine. Pours clear copper, white head. Bitter, in the beginning and bitter in the end. Finish is very dry, and a bit astringent, a good thing. Overall, a most excellent IPA.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tall boy. That’s the ’coolest’ thing about this brew, sadly. Orange amber, no haze, small white head. Nose is very sweet, almost candied hops, i can just see the sugar cones breaking off into the beer. Flavor is similarly very sugary, also some wild onion, grape juice, light butter. Ugh. Not a huge fan of regular Dales so I’m not too surprised at my reaction to this one.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour is a crystal clear mahogany color with a small tan head. Nose is of citric hops mostly. Taste is light, similar to the nose, with a little more of a floral backbone.

Can. Clear copper pour, with an off white head. Lots of citrus, pine, and dank hops in the aroma. Flavor has similar hop profile, pretty dank, with lots of bready malt and caramel sweetness. Too much caramel for my liking. Ok

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2013 4/4: Pours a clean sharp copper with two fingers of creamy sandy tan head. Nose is resinous and well balanced, lots of green hop character and bready/toasted/biscuity. Very sharp and resinous with a garlic/onionlike quality (Summit?). Not a fan of the flavor, sharp and waxy/bitter. Has a weird almost chemically character to it. Very heavy with hop resins. Citrus and pine resin all over the place. Oily with a medium body and sharp bitterness on the finish. *shudder*
3/15: Pours a soft peachy orange with two fingers of sticky khaki tan head. Very nice aroma, candied flowers and sharp citrus with an almost melony lime character. Very intriguing nose. Round and almost candy-ish quality in the flavor, very pronounced bitterness. About all I can taste is a candy-ish sweetness and some citrus.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear copper pour pour with an off white head and spotty lace. Aroma is resinous pine, grapefruit and a little peach. Fairly hoppy (mostly grapefruit) with a decent malty backbone. Lingering bitter finish

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap. Almost like a nitro pour cap of eggshell creamy head on a murky copper orange body. Mango, passion fruit, and slight grapefruity hop aromas with a touch of malty sweetness. Thankfully drier than aroma suggests, but still quite malty. Grapefruit hops, slight grass, and he same garlic quality found in Gubna. Medium body with fine carbonation. Just ok

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2012 Deep coppery color with an off white head. Punchy but well-rounded. Full flavored IPA with hops well represented, but not overpowering. A little malty sweetness underneath, a bit of citrus zest, some earthy grassiness, and pepper.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This beer bleeds hops. The aroma is exactly what the label says, deviant. Opens up very well upon pouring and has a strong taste but good balance. Nice.
