3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap, Gem & Keystone. Pours a slightly hazy dark gold with a small fizzy white head that fell to a thin ring. The nose is very much lacking in hops, just a slight citrusy and floral hop note. Light caramel malt. The flavor is lacking in hops as well, minimal bitterness, just a slight tropical fruit note. Light caramel sweetness on the finish. No way this is a DIPA. Medium bodied, fairly thick with soft fizzy carbonation. OK ’beer’, but a pretty terrible DIPA.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sampled at Coopers Seafood House in Scranton PA this beer poured a golden amber color with a small soapy white head that faded and left a touch of lacing.The aroma was tart chalk and a hint of citrus. The flavor was tart and bitter citrus, chalk, Windex, pear and a bit of bread. There was a noticeable boozy presence that did not work well and there was an odd aftertaste. Medium body. Disappointing.
