2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle on 08.27.14.
Poured from a bomber into a mason jar style glass on 10.08.14.
A: Caramel, light citrus, and brown sugar. It’s very subtle.
A: 2 finger head. See through copper body.
T: Caramel, pine, and hop resin dominate. Brown sugar and flower are subtle.
O: This is a malt dominant IPA. The bitterness is acidic and lingers annoyingly. It’s not undrinkable, but not enjoyable. The flower sweetness is nice, but this is not in the West Coast style. Unfortunately, the sink drank it.

Nice DIPA. Deep copper color with small silky head, robust hop aroma, some citrus. Taste adds more resinous hops and a little alcohol warmth. Medium wright, slightly chewy, and slippery.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a 22. Looks like a standard IPA offering. Aroma is a bit dank and grassy. Flavor is citrusy, grapefruit and sweet. The aftertaste is astringent and the finish is long and bitter. Masks the alcohol fairly well.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear copper in the glass with an off-white head. Aroma is citrus, specifically grapefruit, and light cereal malt. Crisp in the mouth, with more tangy citrus notes, pithy bitterness, and a spicy malt profile. Finishes dry, with lingering grapefruit peel and a flutter of alcohol. Tasty stuff.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours clear reddish dark amber with a rocky to creamy mostly lasting head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of citrus and spruce. Flavors of grapefruit, light to medium bitter, some astringency on the sides of my tongue. Average carbo, good solid malt backbone/well balanced and a long bitter finish being strongest in the far finish.
