3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tallahassee, Fl. - Publix Supermarket - 22 oz bomber. Pours a sparkling medium orange withe a creamy, sticky white head that leaves a nice coat of lacing. Aroma has some light spruce accents, a bit of maple syrup sweetness. Flavor is sweet with some very light citrus, juicy fruit gum, some honeydew melon, a hint of maple syrup and a touch of hard candy sweetness. Mouthfeel is syrupy in a good way. Comparing my notes to the former Gemini, the earlier one was a bit more subtle and sharper.

Slightly hazy, amber color . Nice, white head. Aroma of pine , honey and tropical fruits. Aggressive bitterness from the start, balanced by honey-like sweetness. Bitterness in aftertaste is less intense . Decent DIPA.

Bottle from my brother. Nice hop aroma leads into much deeper, robust taste. Fruity, slick, nice slippery body. Very smooth for a DIPA.

Bottle. Clear light rust orange. Citrus, grapefruit rind and juicy old school hops with down malt sweetness in the aroma. Pine and grapefruit rind with some malty sweetness thatís not overly so. Medium body. Maybe Iím being nostalgic but this is very good. Better than the old version and certainly not new school but made really well. Fun.

I really really really like this one. It has a light sweet, creamy caramel for just a couple of moments and then the hops punch your tongue in it's face. It builds along with the bitterness, fighting to keep the alcohol burn under control. The palate holds the hops, and, if there's any complaint, it's that the bitterness stalls on the palate at point where it's almost a bad taste....not quite, but very close. I still really like this one. If not for that, I'd have this at a 4.2/4.3

Tasting at Mattís
Hazy light amber color, small head. Lean body; pretty good, but the malt is not very deScriptive, the hops are a bit resiny and fruity but also nothing special. Good without being excellent.

Bottle to glass. Nose is mostly malt and perfume, lacking any dank or citrus. Herbal and woody. Taste is seemingly sweet with a light citrus taste. This is everything I donít like in DIPAs.
