3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a very light golden color with two fingers of frothy-white head. Aroma is sweet caramely citrus. Flavor is very sweet with a little hint of pine and grapefruit bitterness. This is a very good Double IPA that has the best of both the bitter and sweet worlds.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Hayduke. This pours with some haze in the darker golden beer. A sticky lacing remains after the foam falls. Some classic IPA aromas of citrus and tropical fruits combine to make what could be something that hangs from a car’s rear view mirror. The blast of hops tasted is much bigger. They seem to be both wet and dry. Malts are there and are big but the focus here is on hops. I like it.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy, golden-orange, smallish white head, so-so retention (no idea how fresh this bottle is). Nose is some citrus, oranges mainly, but more malt than hops. Mouth is medium-full bodied, citrusy hops and malt up front, some hints of peach and mango, then some toasty bread, pineapple and a medium dry finish and a real lack of bitterness considering all the hops proclaimed on the label (again, no idea how old this is). Not bad, but certainly not the ’massive sensory overload’ I was promised.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared with Linh. Pours a bright orange body with thick white lacing. Aroma is malty bread and light grapefruit hop. Mouthfeel is medium with lots of bready malts, grain and light bitter grapefruit hop. Seems past it’s prime, so would love to try this on draft or fresher.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Half liter bottle. Pour is deep gold/amber. The smell is resiny and citrusy, very fresh and clean. The flavor is rather dry. Big lemon characteristic as well as a light sweet malt backing. It is definitely not bad.
