4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thanks a bunch to Dixonian for this Texas gem. Aromas were huge with pine, well water, herbal basil and jasmine, some caramel, grapefruit, and more pine. Intense hop aromas. I like!! The body is golden orange with an off-white head. The flavor profile was obviously hop-heavy with a slight bit of malt (caramel). So much pine in there! Some grapefruit and pumelo bitterness were in there, too, leaving a dry finish. Very good but I would like a touch more malt presence. A hop bomb for sure.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
10 oz. glass @ Draught House- served a very slightly turbid orange/ several shades of brown, low carbonation, looked like the horizontal slice of gray matter from the gray spinal cord matter, with white ring for a head. Aroma of citrus, pine, caramel, yeast, and money (yes, freshly minted money). Hits the mouth with a tractor trailer jackknifed wide body, malt is very overpowered by the hopsí itís just there for a millisecond, then itís gone. Some citrus feel to it towards the backend, finish is sharply acidic. Somewhat out of balance, somewhat still "hot", but it does suffice. At least I was wise enough to just purchase a glass of it and not waste my time (and money!) searching for it!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2013 Bottle. Pours a dark orange-red-gold with a fine-grained, off-white head. Huge nose of grapefruit and geraniums, with a touch of resin. Huge hop bitterness on the front, and then an amazingly clean, citrus tingle that is reminiscent of fresh ruby red grapefruit juice and wheat toast. (All I need is a scrambled egg, and itís breakfast!) Amazing mouthfeel -- so often DIPAs finish murky, but this one is so clear it rings. Bravo.

Thanks to my mother-in-law for buying me a case. Thanks to KAggie for shipping it to me. Pours a light amber, clear with a whispy white head. Not much lacing. Aroma of sticky citrus and vanilla. Flavor is a little strong and a little sweet. Not overly sweet. Tons of hop flavor. Nice balance between the bitter hops and sticky sweetness. Bitter finish lingers. Actually, a pretty darn good DIPA.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from market street. Pours a rich amber with a thin white head. The aromas are pine mixed in with some pine and then bathed in some pine with grapefruit and dough. The mouthfeel is bitter, dry and sticky with a heavy body. This was a fantastic beer. Cheers!

Bottle as part of the fest. Really enjoyable, easy to drink, a good lawnmower beer. Not sure what else there is to say...

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle c/o Santa 2011. Pours hazy orange and gold with a small beige head. Aromas of sweet raisin and mild caramel and toffee. Some doughy bread, citrus, and pine. The flavor is fruity, with raisin and cherry, some caramel, and cocoa. Alcohol is present, but not detracting. The finish is moderately bitter pine with sugared citrus. Medium carbonation and full-bodied with a dry finish. Nice! I think this could age well, as it has some barleywine-esque qualities.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Golden copper peach in color. Kind of a biscuity aroma with some citrus. Its almost like lemon scones. Nice! Immediate upfront pine and citrus bitterness with a touch of aspirin in the aftertaste. Overall, very tasty and drinkable immediately as opposed to SAís usual MO releasing the beer then consumers hold the DRs for a few months to let the flavor develop. Solidly brewed...

UPDATED: MAY 17, 2011 Bottles courtesy ericandersnavy, thanks again. Poured a nice golden orange with very minimal head. The aroma had a nice amount of citrus hops with very little malt detected. The taste was a deal breaker as the beginning had a decent amount of bitter present from the hops but then the malt and alcohol took over. Compared to other DIPAs I would have said the beer was slightly old but this beer is only a few weeks old. It was still fairly easy to drink and not totally off putting with the malt. Iím not sure that I will put any away for later as I highly doubt the flavor will become anymore "interesting" than it currently is. (At least for my palate.)
