4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour was hazy orange with white head, while the other DIPA was a citrus bomb this was a pine and grass bomb, big, big notes of pine and grass led into hints of tangerine, some nice biscuit and toffee in there as well. Taste was pine, and more pine, some slight sweet tangerine led into toffee and caramel notes, led into another wave of pine bitter that was relentless and lasting bitter on the palate.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft on tap at Haymarket’s Pizza Port Event (Chicago, IL). Pours a nice golden hazed pour, a touch darker with some fading glowing orange edges with a decent frothy offwhite head that dies to a decent film, laces ok. Aromas are oranges, tangerines, and grapefruit, moving into florals, grass. Touches of bread, biscuits, a touch of toffee. Initial is medium bodied, preaches bitter hops with bigger fruity grapefruit, pine, and lemon. Some biscuits and toffee creep in with, sweeter malt base. With a bigger bitter hop bite that really dries out, a touch toasty. This has a considerable malt base but the hops really dry this bad boy out. Into the finish with touches of peach, grapefruit, lemons. Really potent fruity bitterness throws Amarillo fruity qualities and big fruity grapefruit, real dry piney finish. Top shelf DIPA.
