3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUL 16, 2005 Orange body with a moderate off white head that lasts a long time. Bottle "cellared" for almost a year since I forgot about it! Big hoppy aroma - pine and resin. Flavour is also resin dominant. Malt is present but it is relegated to the supporting cast. Dry alcoholic resin finish washes away glimpses of sweet orange citrus in the middle. Alcohol is pleasant at first but becomes less so as the glass goes on. Medium palate. A bit more time in the bottle might smooth it out. 8/4/7/4/15
<P>Original Rating Bottled. Orangey with no head to speak of. Aroma is a malty alchol "barleywine" like aroma. Very hoppy, but relatively well balanced - not as bitter as I expected. The malt is not very noticable but is enough to keep the bitter from being too over the top. Body is thick but not creamy. A sipper, it leaves the mouth a tad dry. 6/3/7/4/16

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap. Pours clear golden with a thin off white head. Aroma is sweet malts, caramel, butterscotch, light sweet fruits, some alcohol. Taste is strong sweet malts, some light fruitiness again, robust vegetal bitterness, quite some booze. Oily mouthfeel, full body, light carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours slightly hazy to cloudy pale amber with one fingers of rocky white head, good retention and minimal lacing. (3/5) Nose is caramel malt, pithy citrus, pine resin, mild floral. (7/10) Taste is moderate sweet, moderately strong bitter. (6/10) Medium body, moderate to low carbonation, slightly boozy finish. (4/5)
Nothing too thrilling - a fairly standard heavy-handed, malt-forward DIPA. Doesn’t excite me, doesn’t turn me off. Damned with faint praise? Maybe - but that’s about what it deserves. (12/20)

Yeah, I'm a fan boy, but this just ticks all boxes, it flavoursome as well as sensuous on all other accounts. So many different scents, and tingles and yeah. Just, yeah. Oh baby.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle (nice) - dark gold with slim white head. Aroma of citrus hops, pine, honey maybe. Excellent taste - citrus hops mainly, with touch of floral, nicely dry, good malt backbone. Medium to full bodied, softly carbonated. Nice long bitter finish, touch of late warming alcohol. An excellent DIPA.

Bottle shared @ home from Saveur-Biere.com - Color: hazy dark blond beer with no carbonation and small white foam. Smell: resin and hoppy domination with grassy finish. Taste: hoppy taste and resin notes. Woody taste and alcohol finish. Aftertaste: resin and caramel with alcohol notes. Maybe it was to late to drink this beer....

On tap at Dexters, pours a hazy dark amber orange with a thin white head and some lacing in the glass, the aroma is of heavy citrus and hop resin with a pine touch as well, the flavor has a nice citrus front end with a pine and hop like finish, smooth mouthfeel, not bad.
