3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pour is light copper in color with a medium sized white head. Smells like weed, pineapple, some bubblegum. Really nice aroma. Taste is piney and pepper like, with very little else going on. Too much of a let down after the nice fruity aroma. Medium mouthfeel. Not bad, but the aroma led me to believe that this was going to be better.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
I thought that this was good but unremarkable. It has a nice hoppy nose and a good bitter taste, but a relatively flat palate. My personal feeling is that if a DIPA is going to have this body, the palate should be more complex.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a medium copper, clear. Floral aroma, some hop in the nose. Taste is semi sweet from the hops, malt is not very strong but balanced. Body is medium, soft carbonation, finish is long but not too long. A solid DIPA, well made, nothing super special about it..but would definitely have again.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Near clear orange amber with fair ring of offwhite head. Nose is fruity, almost cherry hops, like a fresh american barleywine. Flavor is somewhat like a hoppy imperial red. Fresh floral and resinous hops. Sticky on the palate, with a little alcohol burn in the finish. This was damn good

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Botttle from the Natomas BevMo. Pours copper with a creamy beige head. Aromas of citrus rind over mildly roasted malt. Med + body. Flavor is lots of citrus rind - burns like zest, over some pretty roasty malt. There’s a lot of flavor here. It even seems there’s a little florality now and then. Pretty good stuff, tho perhaps with a bit too much sugar. Eh. Chacun à son goût

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
It poured a golden color with a medium off-white head. The aroma was of grass, apricot, and pineapple. The flavor was of pineapple, light pine, and grapefruit. A decent seasonal ale.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Poured a clear copper color with an averae frothy off-white head that lasted with good lacing. Medium to heavy complex hop aroma with a small malt tone. Medium to full body with a slick deep texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet and small alcohol burn finish of moderate to long duration. This is a solid complex beer.

4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
12oz. Btl. nice and frothy head; hints of citrus, lemon and herbs? (nice!). pours amber and lightly hazy. almost perfect taste; if there is such a thing. A wonderful mix of bitterness and sourness that comes together quite nicely on your tongue and mouth. Excellant Beer!
