3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Enjoyed this beer on tap in a bar in San Diego. The beer had a semi-cloudy amber color with a slightly darker hue, along with a small-average white head with shorter retention, light cling, and good lacing. It had a quite strong pine and citrus hops aroma with lighter touches of earthy and grainy hops, along with touches of caramel and sugar. It had a heavy bitter and grainy mash flavor with deep tones and an earthy component. The beer was dry with a heavy mouthfeel, had lower carbonation, and a thick, unwatered body.

Surprisingly light in color, pours beautifully. Superb balance, with the acohol almost completely hidden. This has become my go to double IPA.

12 oz bottle poured into glass. Aroma of citrus and hops, almost west coast IPA like to me. Has almost no head to it. Very smooth and easy to drink, I liked that it isn't an imperial but still greatly hoppy. A solid brew for sure.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle from Total Wine, Chesapeake, VA. Golden orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of grapefruit rind, light pine, and tangerine. Taste features bitter wet grass and pine needles upfront with enough citrus and sweet malt to keep this from being too overwhelming. Finish is clean and mildly bitter. Alcohol is well hidden. A nicely done DIPA.

Underwhelming in appearance, though nicely laced the glass. This is strong, a little malty, and just not to my tastes for hops

Sample at Strong Ale Festival 2014. Comes a mostly clear gold with an average white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, and malt. Taste is citrus, pine, tropical, and malt. Very nice.

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2014 Bottle. Fruity and pine aroma. Very smooth with a hoppy and citrus taste. Just a tad of bitterness with a mild after taste. All In all one of the better bottled IPA’s I have had.

Bottle at Swan and Dolphin, 12th November 14. Drinks clean, flavour is fine, it’s fairly average and lacks any wow factor. Standard fayre

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a slightly hazy gold color with a white head that settles to a film. Aroma of citrus and malt. Medium body, taste of citrus & pine hops with some lightly toasted & bready malts. Little bit of citrus in the finish with some of the toasted malt, fairly clean, just a touch of dryness too. Not bad!
