3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is a good looking beer. The pour is really hazy light orange, with a two-finger white head. Aroma is fruity hops, citrus, light weed, tropical fruits, slightly (very slightly) perfumed hop juice..
The taste is slightly sweet upfront, with a long n’ lingering bitter finish.
Medium body, with a semi-fizzy carb.

Pours a nice, cloudy honey color. Great malty, citrus aroma. Heavy bitter hop flavor, and slightly sour with grapefruit notes. Less malty than your standard DIPA. Long, bitter finish. I like this beer, but perhaps not as much as some other DIPA offerings from Pipeworks.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle, thanks bytemesis! Cloudy orange, tremendous creamy foam top. Citrus and flowery aroma with a bit of dank, like a wet hayfield. Bitter but not overwhelmingly so considering it is a double. The star here is the very well balanced malt: grain and straw flavors, hint of yeast. had the character of a cask-conditioned beer. Definitely among the best malt-forward doubles i have had. Bitterness eventually wins out in the long finish.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Golden orange pour with a white head. Some floral, citrus and resin with some juiciness and a just wonderful hop profile. Very good DIPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour is hazy orange with a creamy ivory head. Nose is heavy hop with notes of pine and some tropical fruit like mango and pineapple. Taste is hop bitter primarily with a nice biscuit flavored malt backbone. Bitterness lingers a bit with nice pine and citrus rind flavor. Mouthfeel is medium. Overall very nice.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a very hazy golden amber with a thin cap of head. A lot of lacing. Nose is all citrus and hops. A lot of grapefruit and pineapple. There is a slight yeast backbone but its very subtle. Mouth is extremely bitter. Wonderful balance of bitter and citra hops. Very light bodied and leaves a nice bitterness on the tongue.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
From a bomber acquired on recent Chicago jaunt at West Lakeview... Pours opaque golden brown, lots of carbonation, I finger white head with a bit of lacing. Powerful fruit, both citrus and tropical, on the nose. Amazing hop complexity, like a hop explosion in your mouth, smooth bitter finish... Fantastical DIPA, right up there with the best of them... Wish I lived closer to Chicago...

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Citrus, melon, cantaloupe, slight pine nose. The aroma is electric. Looks perfect for style, golden amber, opaque, slight head sticky lacing. Taste is bitter pine upfront. Kind of assaulted my palate in a good way. A nice dryness meets the seeming resinous qualities. Refreshing citrus aspects come thru. Great bitter dipa...

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rated on 10-22-2012 (Batch 025 (Bottle) This beer pours a small white head, fast rising carbonation, very little lacing, and a golden hue. The Aroma is citrus, fruity, grapefruit, and some hints of pepper. The Taste is fruity, citrus, pine, bitter, and semi-dry. The Palate is tingly and this beer is medium bodied. Overall, a hoppy and easy to drink beer with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. Worth trying.

2nd December 2012
Hazy gold beer, little white head. Light palate, a little crisp and a little dry. Dry pithy yellow grapefruit. A little creamy malt underneath. Touch of orangey hop. Mild aniseed alcohol. Dry finish. Tad dry but pretty drinkable.
