3.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Great aroma of honey and several varieties of hops. Complex yet pleasant. Pours a pretty crimson/dark orange color with a bright white head of foam. The copious amount of foam brings the appearance score down from a 5 to a 4. Other than that, it looks perfect. The taste is a bit thin at first, with some of the honey sweetness from the aroma showing through. The citrus hop flavor creeps in at that point, quite sharply, then fades away quickly leaving a sweet aftertaste. As far as the palate is concerned, it has an adequate thickness, but I factor the aftertaste into the palate rating and it was just too bland. I had high hopes for this beer but the flavor just does not match up with the robust DIPAs that I enjoy so much.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Mostly a floral hop aroma. I found the flavor to be a blend of hops, spice, citrus, and possibly even caramel. In my opinion the hoppiness could have been a little bit more balanced.
