3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
At first I thought, maybe I shouldn’t rate this IPA so long after its release... but isn’t that what these DR series beers are supposed to be for, hoarding (reserving) and opening as they age? So, it smells and tastes like a weak barleywine already at this point. Smells like chocolate whack-an-orange, caramel and plum or prunes. Tastes like sour prune juice and caramel, with a hint of cardboard. Not bad, but not something I’m looking forward to finishing the rest of either.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
some citrus but primarily piney/green hop aromas, no real alcohol notes to speak of, quaffable for 9%, goes down easy.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bottle labeled "endeavour". clear copper with a medium, creamy, whipped white head. crystal malt with earthy pine hop aroma. the flavor is less piney than the aroma, with more fruity notes. not a palate wrecker 2ipa. it’s hoppy, but gentle, and the hop concoction works with the malty backbone that refrains from being too sweet. yet another solid effort from these dudes.

A little piney on the nose. Definitely a solid balance between hop bitterness and hop sweetness.

Aroma is piney, grapefruity and carmelly. Taste is strong bitterness up front, followed by pine and grapefruit. Lingering bitterness on the finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours clear amber with a medium white head that dissipates with great lacing. Aroma is grapefruit, pine and caramel. Flavor is the same, lightly sweet and very bitter from start to finish. Pretty good, but a bit over the top for me.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bomber courtesy of Terminus. It pours clear copper with gold hues and half inch tan head of foam. The mild aroma offers up bitter hops that are a touch citrus sort of lime like as well as notes of sweet malts and biscuit like malts. The taste has bitter hops made up of citrus notes like grapefruit and lime as well as resiny hop bitterness. From here it rolls into increasing malt sweetness. The bitterness stays firm from front to back. Pretty nice.
