3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy orange colored brew. Nice floral hops, some exotic fruits. Flavor is full of hops, bit harsh hopjuice, grapefruit, good bitter, with a lasting grassy bitterness in the end. Bit unbalanced.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Too murky, too tin water tasting and no where near enough hop presense for a upper IPA. Its a bit sweet and tangy too with dried rasins and old chocolate mixing in. Thought I would like this one much more, but at leat the dude at the counter only charged me 5.99 for a six pack.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from bhensonb. Pours copper with a nice beige head and a floral toffee aroma. There is a slightly sour caramel malt flavor, very nutty, with a massively bitter finish. This is a complex and interesting brew, not in the mold of most other DIPAs.

3.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Half Time. Pours copper with a 4 finger foamy/creamy beige head. Aroma is hard to pin down. There’s a lot of stuff. Med+ body. Flavor is floral/perfume over a mild caramel. It’s not harsh and burning, but there’s a lot of hop in here. I think there’s enough to kill bacteria. There’s really a lot of hop in here. I think this is way underrated. My whole view of Matt Brewing just turned 180.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Hazy deep orange pour, thick creamy off-white head. Aroma is artificial fruits and quite chemical. Flavor is bitter grassy hops, some pine, chemicals and strangely sweet. Quite bad IPA.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours slightly orange from bottle with an inch of white foam. Not a lot of aroma on the nose which is disappointing. Medium body with a lot of effervescence. A bit of hop flavor on the tongue. Some bitterness to the finish. Meh!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep orange colour with some very small yeast particles. Smells hoppy and a bit soapy, not enough grapefruit-like smell for me, but nice. Tastes accordingly. Good mouthfeel.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Orange, amber coloured beer with some red shine. Almost no head. Earthy-hoppy, light spiced-fruity smell. Taste starts a bit fruity-sweet, to change to a more bitter-light earthy taste. Hops are less at the front then expected. Caramel gets trough also with malts. Biterness is ok.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Small but vast creamy white to beige head on top of a clear dark orange, light reddish colored beer. Smell hops and grapefruit, but a bit faint. Taste hops and fruits, very good. Alcohol well hidden, very ’round’ taste. Nice carbo.
