3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught. Pours golden with a moderate white head. Aroma is resiny hops and sweet malt. Flavor is similar. Not sure what I was expecting, but it ended up a bit sweeter and less hoppy than I thought it might be, though there is definitely a lot of hop character, just not in as much of an aggressive sort of way. I think it works pretty well, though possibly slightly sweeter than my normal preference. A quite well-balanced DIPA, not a pure hop-bomb.

12 oz. bottle from my Secret Santa. Thanks man! Pours an orangish amber with a small off white head. Decent lacing. Aroma of peach, pineapple. Somewhat juicy, with some orange peel. Flavor is fruity, with some mild caramel malt backing and a twinge of alcohol. Medium to full bodied, aerage carbonation. Finishes with hoppy with a bit of booze. This is pretty nice.

Had it on tap, not bad. I honestly couldnít pick up much of anything but grass in the aroma. A tiny bit of of pineyness but thats it. Taste was a little better. Little bit of tropical fruit, little pine. Bitter. I wasnít crazy about elissa IPA by Saint Arnold. I thought it was kind of sweet and weird. This was a little better. I donít know, maybe Iíve never gotten a good one. Not crazy about it though.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber: ENDEAVOUR IIPA - Copper orange color with 2 fingers of off white , dense, lush foam, which settles after a couple of minutes leaving lace. Aroma is nice and juicy, fruity with orange, honey, and pine. The flavor is a nice balance of acidic and bitter, with nice caramel backbone, it finishes with a touch of aspirin dryness. Medium-full palate, slightly slick, soft mouthfeel adequate carbonation, holds up pretty well with warming. Really nice IIPA.

(Backlog) Bottle of fantasy tasting at Paulís. Brown pour with tan head. Grassy, citrus, light pine aromas and flavors, tones still ok for a slightly aged iipa.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottled: This is the one I fear, an almost three year old DIPA
Yeah as expected the hop esters are buried and what is left behind is pale grains, sweet breads and developing oxidizing. There is still some fleeting bitterness on the palate but really this is a shell of it likely was and does not have enough malt backbone to become a tasty Barleywine. Worse as it warms some pickle starts to dominate the profile.... if you got this left either man up and take one for the team or dump it in the toilet. This beer did not develop interestingly over the years

Part of an IPA tasting, full pour. Pours muddy orange with decent white creamy head. Lots of spruce/pine up front with some grapefruit, melon, misc. citrus. Taste had a cardboard, overcooked note...hard to explain but it was a bit offputting. Some mellow caramel malt smoothed it out overall. Polaring for the group.

Poured into a glass, this beer has a lovely dark golden color. The flavor to me is more like a strong ale, and the aroma reminds me of raisins. The flavors have faded a bit with age, but very enjoyable.

Sample at First Sunday. Band aid hop profile. Pine like hop aroma. Pours a dark orange, light amber color. Not my favorite hop profile unfortunately.
