2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear brown color with a moderate light tan head on it. Nose is quite malt forward, as you get a little subtle toasting along with some earthiness in this. Taste is a little sweet up front, and actually ends up feeling a little resiny. Not a great example.

The aroma has me speechless--just cant think of words, pleasant enough, a little cherry, sweet but also woodsy. Flavor is grapefruit stained with caramel, not harsh but near, though in a simple fashion. thin and drying in mouth. lightly hazed burnt orange with thin off-white head. alcohol finish

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance was hazy burnt orange gold with creamy off white diminishing 1 finger head, no lacing. Aromas are toffee, sweet malts upfront then citrus, piney hops, hints of alcohol. Taste are smooth sweet caramel malt base upfront that gives way to grassy, piney, lemony and tangerine hops profile with hints of alcohol. Palate was soft smooth CO2 with medium body, then lasting citrusy, piney, grassy long finish. A good DIPA, just a tad to much pine for me.

From 22oz bottle to snifter. Pour is a hazy bronze, thin light head with some heavy lacing. Mose is a big hop aroma, caramel, citrus light citrus. Taste is not as bitter as i though, medium bodied with sour and sweet notes at times. Finishes very well for a double, with a lingering taste and that warm mouth feel. Very cool beer.
