4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Barely translucent orange with a small ring of fine bubbles. The aroma is huge summit hops (obviously), which in my experience usually lends an unwanted garlic/onion aroma into the beer. I can detect it, but also with citrus and floral notes that I never noticed. This is actually quite pleasant, and a nice change of pace compared to your usual "C" hops. A lot more citrus is present in the flavor than aroma, with a lot of cantaloupe flavor. There is a bit of that garlic/onion in there too, but itís not bad at all. Strong sweet to stronger bitter mix to this one, with a hot finish. Great DIPA, this has changed my opinion of Summit hops.

Can, Brew Dog Shop. Dark amber pour with a small white head. Piney hop, citrus and sweet malt nose. Sweet, full, thick, boozy flavour with some very robust resinous hop bitterness and decent fruity notes. Iím a sucker for this style, and as such enjoyed this very much.

A watery melon aroma with a good kick of hops make this a more than palpable drinking beer. Goes down smooth and stays down

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can. Citrus and sweet hop aroma, juicy tangerines and rind taste with a light body and median finish. A mostly citrus experience with a subtle cheese and spice thatís very well balanced DIPA. Man itís the background characteristics and base of this beer that really make it stand out among the style.

Pours light gold with a full white head. Initial orange citrus hoppy tang on the tongue. A sweet middle with mild orange vapor on the roof of your mouth.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz can at KISS Cafe. Pours slightly cloudy orangish yellow with medium white head. Aroma is big floral piney hops. Taste is big syrupy caramel malt followed by sharply bitter hops with earthy notes of citrus and pine. Big mouthfeel with the abv obvious. Lingers bitter on the finish. Nice balance of heavy hops and big malt. Lacking the nuanced hop flavors of top DIPAs, but thatís splitting hairs. Very nice beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear gold and copper with a solid quilt of fine whites. Lots of lace. Smells of resin, well actually, this reminds me of the bowl on my weed pipe from high school. Dank. Flavor carries more sweet malts and this is of course dominated by resin, pine, marijuana, and a hint of malt extract. Medium bodied with low carb and a dry finish. This seems very one dimensional.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can (like all OB I guess) - Pour medium yellow (lighter than I imagined it would be) with a medium head. Has a piney (and somewhat citrus) caramel taste to it. Oily slick mouthfeel. The alcohol is well hidden but it still packs a pretty good buzz.

Out of Oskar Blues' two seasonal beers, Ten Fidy is super complex and this is super simple. Both are delicious. Too smooth for 10% and 100 IBUs.
