3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours hazy amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of citrusy and resinous hops plus a good amount of lime, and some caramel malts. Flavor the same with a lot of citrusy hops and lime. Average texture. A good double IPA.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From bottle. This was recommended by my local beer/liquor store WLV. Looks like a standard heavy pale ale with slightly darker golden color with nice frothy white head. The smell is amazing with that Lime Zest and juice really amplifying the citrus notes from the hops. It's funny because I hate lagers with line but I occasionally put a lime in an IPA during the summer for this very reason. This goes perfect with Mexican, Thai, or any other spicy foods that use lime. Not a purists beer but a pure joy to drink.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bomber. It pours a nice golden orange color with a small white head. The aroma is strong with lime zest, tropical fruit juice and a stale crackery malt profile. The flavor has more lime juice, grass, stale crackers and a strong bitter finish. The mouthfeel is a bit soapy and acidic, but light and drinkable for the ABV. Interesting concept that works for the most part. It reminds me of a lot of the hoppy beers I’ve had from Tired Hands.

22oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear dark gold with minimal head. . Aroma of lime and other citrus with a little pine resin. Taste is medium bitter. Very citrusy with loads of lime and bitter pine resin in the background. A little bready also. Full bodied with a somewhat slick texture. Lively carbonation and a super long finish. Overall, this is awesome. Im pretty sure i could drink this everyday.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Batch #155. Vinny provided this guy. Split with Vin and Janine. Pours light translucent orange with a very thin, sudsy white head. Aroma of butter, pears, lime, and some papaya and mango notes. Palate is clean with a touch of lime and booze on the finish. Tastes very much like limes and lime juice. The lime flavor certainly dominates on this one. Refreshing, but needs a touch of restraint.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle shared by Jean at TH. Pours lightly hazed golden with light to medium head/lace. Notes of tangy hops, grass, grapefruit, cheese, toasted malt and lime zest. Smooth as shit palate. 8% alcohol is barely present on this bitter ipa. Nice brew.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle. Golden pour with a medium, quickly dissipating white head. Aroma of lime zest, pine hops, some bread notes. Flavor is strong on the lime notes. Secondary hop notes abound: lots of resin and pine. Quite bitter, actually. Finishes bitter, with touches of bread and caramel. This is enjoyable.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
22oz bottle, thanks to DanielCoor and his dad for sharing! Amazing lime juice and zest to this, makes it a very refreshing summer time DIPA! Refreshing in the way that Lemon Lime gatorade used to be when I played high school football, but way less sweet... Very nice moderate bitterness to balance out the lightly sweet zest. Good biscuity malt balance to it, as well... In the aroma there’s a scent that’s like freshed-baked lemon bar cookies some friends made a couple weeks ago, only with lime zest... Medium-plus body. Smooth, crisp lighter carbonation, lightly dry in the finish. Mostly clear golden color, thin white head, leaves good dots of lace. This was a real treat. Exactly the kind of zesty, drinkable, refreshing, but potent DIPA I’m looking for, especially in the summer. Cans of this... Can you imagine cans of this?!

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared at Indy tasting: Golden hue with spotty lace. The aroma has notes of Citra and Simcoe like citrus and tropical esters along with some catty and spicy vapours. Dry biscuit and earthy yeast, lots of lime leaf notes as well. The taste is twangy and fruity that get quite bitter as it warms. A tad too boozy for complete refreshment. The mouth feel is lively and sharp. Very different but methinks the beer could have been better a bit more sessionable like an APA versus the DIPA that it is.

bottle, big lime blast in the aroma, tons of it. Added an unique flavor to this DIPA. Pretty big bitterness but lime dominated. Medium mouthfeel, unique & pretty good.
