Sample at the Hanshin Seed Event. A clear amber pour, fantastic hop aroma herbal & fruity with solid caramel malt backbone. Very bitter, green hoppy goodness, dry finish plus some sweetness from the malts. Good.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Q-Brick. Dark amber-orange. Butterscotch, toffee in the nose. Heavy and sweet, with stone fruits, butterscotch. Not what I want in a W-IPA. Too sweet and syrupy.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUL 11, 2014 Tap at Qbrick. Balanced caramel and deep hoppy nose. Dark copper/amber color. Rather sweet initial, with a rush of overripe dates and caramel thickness. Some solid citrus. Sweetens up again in the finish. Nice enough. Hitting well within its weight class. But overall a bit too sweet, even edging on cloying.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy orangish copper with a frothy white head. Aroma of caramel, tropical fruits, mango, guava and melon. Taste is caramel, tropical fruits, mango, cantaloupe and sweet malty finish that goes semi dry with a well balanced bitterness. Very well balanced double and never seems as big as it’s abv.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bomber. Clouded orange brown, fading off-white foam. Nectarous tropical fruity aroma. More aggressively hopped fruity taste, mostly grapefruit and citrus, well balanced with not too sweet C-malt, a bit boozy. Softer than average carbonation, medium bodied. Delicious stuff. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy darker amber color with a moderate light tan head on there. Nose has some nice grass elements with it, as well as some good citrus. Tase is moderately bitter, but has a nice residual resiny sweetness on the back end. Quite pleasant to drink.
