4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle share at Damico’s. Pours a hazy golden slight copper color with thin foam head. Aroma of big grapefruit and some malts. Juicy sweet up front with a nice malt backbone. More of your juicy but sticky, malty IPA variety than just straight juicy hop bomb. Very tasty.

Pours hazy golden thick murky sour mix in color. Aroma brings sweet and fresh juicy hops so pleasant in the nose. Grapefruit on nose is continued right in the flavor with a big juicy body and some subtle Sweet zest, lingering so nicely on the palate.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2013 Served on-tap at Al’s of Hampden. This is for the Double Dry Hopped Version.
A - Pours hazy golden amber with a small half finger tall white head leaving sticky trails of lace down the glass.
S - Smells of strong grassy hops, mild citric fruit, some caramel malt, a bit of pine resin and some light earthiness. Smells the part, hope it tastes as good as it smells.
T - Starts off with the same big grassy hop bite that stays around through the finish. Hints of caramel and toffee sweetness, pine and a bit of tropical fruit offer some balance to all the hop bitterness. Finish is a little sweet with plenty of bitterness, lingering on the palate long after the finish. A little more balanced than the nose.
M - Medium body with moderate carbonation. Sticky feel from all the hops and sweetness.
O - A nice rift on an already good beer. It smells really nice and has some decent balance but all that hop bitterness started to wear on me toward the end of my glass. I could do one or two of these but that is about it. Anyway, if you are into this kind of beer you will enjoy this one.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at new Al’s location. Clear gold-amber pour with thin white head. Aroma is nutty, quite hoppy, pretty typical citrus pine, nothing too exotic. Taste is bitter, bordering on astringent but still quite drinkable. Strong piney hop flavor. Good.
