4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz. bottle, sent from ekoerper (thanks a lot, Ed), pours a hazy orange with a small white head. Highly aromatic on the nose with tropical fruits, citrus and resinous hops, a bit of Belgian yeast and some caramel malt backing. Flavour is every bit as lovely, with juicy tropical fruits (grapefruit, mango especially), citrus fruits, loads of citrus and resinous hops, and a perfect amount of caramel malt for support. Really wonderful flavours, all working in harmony. Drinks so easily - could drink litres of this stuff. A splendid IIPA that I think deserves higher ratings (even at 96).

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at GTMW 2014
A decent imperial IPA might lack the pop of the well known examples. Even so this down to earth Midwestern draft drinks easily. Loaded with the typical flavors of a malty imperial IPA, the result leaves a memorable presence.
Aroma / Appearance - A hazy golden body with thick icy legs lies in wait. From inside waves of malt, citrus, and resin meet Belgian yeast in a mixture that smells like hop infused cotton candy.
Flavor / Palate - Citrus and resin cling to the tongue. A bitter transition betrays the Belgian aspect. Soon afterwards the warm finish sparkles as it washes over the throat. A nice malt profile helps offset the bitterness. If other Peace Tree beers are this robust then I may have to arrange a road trip.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle @ John’s Grocery / Iowa City IA --- Hazy dark amber with a generous, long-lasting 2" rocky off-white head, fluffy blobs of lace. Taste is bold malt that exposes a definite burst of milk chocolate as it moves to a strong hoppy ending that drifts through a long finish without losing any of the stuff it started with. A big brew, original, balanced, and great tasting. High recommendations.

Shared bottle. Very good DIPA! Interesting blend of citrusy American hops and peppery Belgian yeast. Aroma is of oranges with a peppery background. Very drinkable DIPA that I will continue to seek out while in Iowa.

Pours amber with small white head. Aroma is some citrus and tropical fruit with a bit of spruce mixed in. Taste was bitter with grapefruit shining through, but this tasted more like a Belgian than a double IPA.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Deep orange/amber color out of the stubby bottle with a lasting sticky off white head. The initial nose was a pine tree forest that settled into a sweet mix of citrus candy and pine. Big syrupy mouth feel. Tons of malt under even more candied grapefruit rind and orange peel. Nicely balanced big hop beer.

It was okay. Middle of the road IPA. Good nose and balanced hops but had an overly dry bitter finish.
