3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Pours a deep clear copper color with a finger of creamy off white head. Aroma is slightly boozy, with notes of caramel, and sweet citrus. Taste of toasted bread, and caramel malt. Notes of citrus, apricot, and pine. I'm liking the flavor way more then the aroma. Decent DIPA.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. The pour is a murky dark orange/brown. The aroma is all hops. The taste is a refreshing hoppy feel. A very good blend of hops. Big hop taste, but very clean and smooth, finishes nice, not too much bitterness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle on the balcony. The aroma is pine, brown sugar, malt. Smells sweet. Over the top malty sweetness underneath, but very bitter on top, yields a nicely balanced beer. Nuances of sweet dough, resin, mellow citrus.

Bottle: Amber-Brown color with a big, frothy light tan head. Aroma: floral, resin, grapefruit.... Smells wonderful. Taste is not as bitter as I thought it would be... Nice. Itís got a citrusy lemon thing going on too... Nicely balanced.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle. Nice copper colored liquid topped by a small creamy beige head. Lovely clinging Belgian lace. Toasted malt nose quickly yields to the aggressive hop bombardment that awaits. Notes of pine and citrus are foremost here. Burnt caramel malt mixes with the resiny hops to offer a nicely balanced ale with moderate body and depth. Buttery and chewy mouthfeel leads to a spicy dry hop finish that is long and tasty. An outstanding DIPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs.). Looks solid; very malty though. A somewhat hazy amberish brown with off-white head that dissipates into lacing. Smells solid too; bitter, pine, and citrus hops with a malty backbone. Tastes like it smells with a nice, smooth mouthfeel. A pleasantly well-balanced beer.

12 oz bottle - pours dark red caramel, slight white head, diminishing. Easy lacing. Aroma of grain, biscuit, malt, and oranges. Round and decent. Malty. Full bodied with long finish. Pretty good if not my type.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Heavy pine and caramel nose. Fully sweet, boozy sticky palate. Quite a bit of bite (read not real smooth) in the palate. Still, as it is flavorful and substantial, I enjoyed it. Not up the being named after a great Clash song however.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The aroma is full of hops, pine, citrus, and resin. There is also lots of syrupy malt. The taste is like the aroma with a bitter bite at the end that is a wee bit off putting. The palate is smooth. While lacking anything defining or outstanding this is a really solid IIPA.
