3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tasted 3/10/11. Hazy with an orange honey hue with an off-white ring of head. Nice lacing. Bitter citrus aromas with a mild grape and berry note. Full bodied with a nice bitter hop character. Tangy with a lot of grapefruit fruity bitterness. Good complexity with a focus on the bitter aspects. Solid!

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
3/16/2008. 12oz bottle, no date. Clear medium orange with a small creamy light beige head, fading to a ring before long, after an aggressive pour. Resiny pine and tropical fruit hops up front in the aroma, light alcohol, powdered sugar, and sweet caramel malts and cotton candy following. Nice interplay of the malt and hops as it comes across as sweet hops. Also very light toasted malts. Flavor has loads of bitterness right off with pine and grapefruit (not really tropical anymore). Lots of alcohol and a little caramel also noted. Bitterness peaked at an 8-9--bitter as hell. Literally tongue-numbing. Low carbonation with a full body. I’m all for bitter, but this is completely unbalanced without a complex flavor profile, either.

12oz picked up at the brewpub which has been in the fridge for awhile....pours a dark apricot/caramel brown with a thin soapy white head... aroma of caramel toffee malt and a faded hop profile...flavors start of heavy on the caramel malt with faded hops which eventually give way to a piney bitter astringency that remains on the palate which is fairly off-putting. mouthfeel was thin to medium. couldn’t finish this bottle off unfortunately.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle thanks to Kevin. Pours a cloudy amber with a big white head. Nose is somewhat floral hops with a big dose of grapefruit on the backend. A hint of caramel denotes a malt background that doesn’t really come through much in the flavor. Crazy bitter up front with massive pine, grassy hops, nice tropical fruit flavor and really bitter long finish. To much for me but this is a really well made DIPA for those that love the really bitter stuff.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle… Hazy orange ale with a fat-bubbled, white head. The aroma is of honeysuckle, praline, tropical fruit and resiny hops. Medium to full-bodied with fizzy carbonation. Bitter as Hell, moderately acidic and boozy. The finish is lengthy, tangy, and then bitter forever.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours amber with light head. Smell is sweet fruity syrupy hops. Taste is very bitter and hoppy. Hoppy and sweet at the same time. Medium body. Not very drinkable. Aged yet still slightly harsh, bitter DIPA. Decent.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle. Hazy brown with a brief sudsy head. Nose is burnt caramel and wet grass with hints of mold and soap. Thick, a little gritty, with tongue numbing carb. Taste starts with a bit of butterscotch and pineapple but its all bitter after that. Lingering grapefruit peel, vodka and pine needles.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This poured dark caramel to brown in color with a very thin head. The nose was strange with a combination of herbal hops, citrus and horse pee. In the mouth it is full-bodied, smooth and concentrated. Overall this really just seemed strange as it seems to be caught inbetween of a hoppy and strong ale stage.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle that I brought back from the brewery in my panniers on my summer bike trip. Pours a clear orange with an off white head. Nose is fruity and malty. Lots of grapefruit, caramel, a cherry aged malt note. Slick medium body. Syrupy fruit, dried fruit, grapefruit, aged cherry malts and some alcohol in the flavor. Some bitterness is left, but those floral hops have faded to a shadow of what they must once have been. Still drinkable and tasty, but I bet this tastes best fresh from the tap.
