3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
What an odd tasting DIPA - almost skunky. Hints of caramel and orange combine for a bad palate. It's unique and hoppy enough that I won't destroy it rating wise. Super light color.
On tap at Big E's.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from a trade. Nose is weirdly fruity with some spiciness like allspice or coriander. Hazy orange with medium sized white head. Taste is fruity with a moderately creamy mouthfeel. Lingering bitterness. Just too sweet with muddled hop flavor.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Gently hazed marigold with a soapy but sticky white head. Cooked oranges and some biscuity malts in the nose, along with some clean floral hops, mulch and just a bit of pineapple. The flavor is well-balanced, vigorous bitterness matched with honeylike malt sugars, then a flash of apricot, tangerine and alcohol at the swallow. The body might be what I enjoy most about this brew: it’s creamy and soft as marshmallow fluff. Feels more like drinking a cream-based cocktail than a beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is tropical fruit, dank, pine, malt, decent. Appearance is golden amber, hazy, white head. Taste is initial tropical fruit, then incredibly bitter, pine, earthy, a touch of malt and a ton of booze. Mouthfeel is medium body, sticky, light carbonation, incredibly bitter aftertaste that is almost minty. Overall, this is one of the more bitter IPAs I’ve tasted, otherwise it would be better.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle. Pours hazy straw gold with a big bubbly white head that retains well and leaves some lacing.
The aroma is some bready caramel malt with a lot of piney tarry hops.
The flavor is sweet straw malts with a little fruit and a big piney resiny abrasive bitterness with a light note of green onion. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.
Overall, a big abrasive hop bomb.
