3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pint at Red Hook. Golden amber in color. Aroma is weak but pleasant. Extra malty on this one but not complaining, it is still an outstanding beer and finishes top notch with just the right bitterness.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft pour pint at Red Hook. Clear golden pour with a quick fade head. Aroma matches the hop filled air as I drive by Red Hook every morning on my daily commute. Bitter hops up front and throughout. A little earthy. Pretty easy drinking, but not too clean. Tastes strong. Alright imperial here.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On draft at the brewery. Clear golden orange pour, with a white head. Citrus hops, caramel malt, pretty sweet, malty, and bitterness. Meh, ok, not a great DIPA, but not bad.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draught at the brewpub. Pours a clear amber color with a very small white head on it. Nose is quite hoppy, with floral and resin notes dominating the smell, and seeming very bold. Taste is nicely bitter and feels thick, almost like you should chew it. Decent brew.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Pacific Liquor: Color is a copper brass like color and had created a soft fluffy topping for a head which broke down instantly. Mild aroma of hops and bread like malts. The flavor is bitter with a decent serving of hops that leaves behind a salty and metallic finish.

22oz bottle from Bevmo. OK, I’m not happy with Bevmo, this may be the last beer I buy from there. Just opened this beer and it is oxidized. Looking closer at the bottle the bottling date is 6/26/10! Got a flight early tomorrow morning, so can’t take it back. I should have checked the bottle better when I bought it
Appearance: Pours hazy amber with a medium sized off-white head and good lacing
Aroma: Citrus and caramel
Taste: Caramel, cardboard with a sweet bitterness in the finish
Footbalmed and hope to rate it again (with a fresh bottle).

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden piss yellow pour. Faint citrus hop aroma. A bit of bitterness and kinda a onr dimensional mess. Not bad, but hard to compete for the style

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
22oz bottle -
This wasn’t a bad beer in the normal sense of the word, but rather just a bad DIPA. The hops were burried under an avalanche of malts, but what hops squeaked out of the aroma was something close to citrusy/orange juice like hops. But the main focus in the aroma seemed to be on the sweet malts. Flavor was the same way. An overabundance of sweet syrupy malts with just a twinge of bitter orange-y hops in the flavor. Seemed also like a small barleywine. Not horrible, but not a good DIPA either.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
pours amber with medium to low head
aromas of sweet fruits, fudge...
taste is bitter in the beginning going over to more sweetness to end quite abrupt which makes the end taste quite watery. some bitternes left in the mouth afterwards. distinct maltyness
a good beer that could use some more complexity
