3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Single bottle at Lemon Tree. Poured this into a small goblet, which kicked up a big white head. Beer beneath is bubbly, dark gold in color, and pretty hazy. Sniffing the head offers plenty of pine needle and resin, and light citrus behind it. Not overpowering, though. Taste is the big hop juice we all know and love. This one’s notched "Bottle Conditioned in May ’11," but the hops have lost none of their punch. Perhaps they did blend together and settle a bit in the nose. I’m going to call this one a little too rough. Malts have take over a little further down the road, but I’ve been leaving too many IIPA’s in the cellar past their prime.

Bottle into tulip. Squash yellow, decent fine head. Orange and grapefruit in the nose. Slightly sticky, vaguely citrus mouth. Sweeter finish. Ok, not my favorite.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly hazy golden color with off-white head. Aroma is quite malty but I also get oranges, sweet orange peel, overripe tangerines and also some booze. Taste is quite balanced. Malty but not sweet, earthy, citrusy, piney hops, medium to harsh bitterness on the finish and lingers on the aftertaste with grapefruit flavor. Medium body and carbonation, feels quite smooth. Overall it’s a classic double IPA with a solid malt backbone and a good amount of bitterness.

Well done and well balanced without having any kind of special character. Just a nice, well constructed DIPA. Hazy amber pour with good head and lacing. Bitter finish with tangerine and a touch of booze. Bottle from a Total Wine in Maryland.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
33cl bottle. Hazy orange with medium head. The beer has an aroma of sweet syrupy and candied tropical fruits, pine, clementine, pomelo and citrus peel. Also some cheese cake. Medium carbonation and creamy, fluffy mouth feel. The beer is well balanced, medium sweet, not cloying at all. Hop burn is there with ginger and grapefruit peel bitterness. Bitterness is medium and it doesn’t last too much. One of those DIPAs that are quite easy to drink. A nice one.
