4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draft at Piece. Pours looking a lot like Camel Toe, glowing orange with a fluffy, frothy off white head. Nose is fantastic, showcasing amarillo and probably some ahtanum. Apricot, peach, resin. On taste, it is more subdued than CT, but they dry-hopped the heck out of it giving it a smooth/soft bitterness that is thrust at you with a ton of tropical flavors from the late edition hops. Pretty spectacular IIPA.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
on tap at piece (12/4/09).... pours a medium orange caramel brown with a thin soapy/frothy white head. as it turns out, it is lighter in comparison to camel toe... aroma of bright tropical fruits, again similar to camel toe, with a sweet malt backbone... flavors of tropical hops, mainly mango and pineapple-like, with a mild citrus rind bitter finish. middle is predominantly filled with sweeter tones. as usual, piece create another well-balanced dipa. decent body with medium carbonation. when had side by side to camel toe, wack job was just slightly less bitter overall. i hold them both pretty high in regards with a slight edge to CT but this one is pretty damn good.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Another Double IPA from Piece. Pours orange with an off white head. Hop bomb all the way, filled with citrus aroma and flavor. Nice sweetness to try to balance, but the bitterness really wins. I didn’t have the Camel Toe this time, but would like to compare right next to each other. I remember liking Camel Toe more.
