3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from May 2014 into snifter glass, amber with slight golden hue and white soapy lacing. Aroma of tropical/dank hops (peach, pineapple, orange, lemon) with light caramel malt backing. Taste adds notes of pine bark, resin, some booze and a faint spiciness. Heavy body, low carbonation, astringent, crisp with funky hop bitterness lingering. A little harsher then expected but overall a nice rounded DIPA.

Generic stuffs. Typical ST mediocrity. More of an APA than an IIPA ceptin for the ABV. Thank you very much! Bottle from statelineliquors.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle pour. Semi-opaque orange with solid head. Lacing all the way down. Grainy, somewhat sulfuric perfume upfront. Some piney hops after on nose. Opens up on tasting. Medium+ body. Nice, sticky, resinous hops lend a consistent mild bitterness. Orange zest. Good malt backbone. Each sip starts medium sweet, then finishes dry and back to bitter. Well balanced. Aroma needs work.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours dark copper, oily looking, small layer of beige head that disappeared quickly. Smells of zesty orange juice, honey, some melon, an overall waxy quality. Soft carbonation, tingly thick mouthfeel, surprisingly clean finish. Hefty amount of bitter hops, resinous and slightly tropical on finish with an indistinct but strong malt presence. Good but straightforward DIPA that’s light feeling.

No aroma and weird taste in the middle. Remember the taste of feet. Wouldn't drink it again

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
(trade w/Olking,) Great peach and Apricot aroma upon immediately cracking the cap. Crystal orange body with small amount of bubbles coming up in the glass. No head. Piney flavor mixed with tangerine and sour oranges. Good mouthfeel. Not too striptease yet not too watery. Hides its 9% alcohol very well. Awesome trade!
