Medium sweet flavor with a bit of alcohol kick, orange rind, pale bread, minerals, oily pine. Medium to full bodied with average carbonation.

Mixed on this--MB loved it, I wasnít so sure. Lots of grass and straw flavors to it--a bit much to me so that it becomes a little harsh. Slightly astringent finish.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
More carmel and hop bite than much else. Not an amazing IPA in any way. Not a bad beer, but not an incredible DIPA. Aroma is almost more hops and sweetness than anything else. Thin fading head. Purchased in Wisconsin.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Nose caramel and earth mostly, touch spice, touch alcohol, otherwise C-hops and mild resin. Poured cloudy dark orange with a short tan head. Taste strongly bitter, attenuated and pretty dry, picking up more orange peel and a little dank wood character, faint dough, and the leafy hops also impart a bit of orange marmalade. Alcohol not as pronounced as Iíd feared but itís still hefty without burn. Toast, caramel, earth, light spice, lightly floral, strong and growing pine. More dough and a little crystal in the finish. Body very full, medium-crisp, avoids sugary meltdown. Clean but the hops are a little raw, and overall doesnít jump of the page. [2015.11.06: 3.3]
