3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from Bomber to a pint glass. Great looking pour, creamy head. Has the aroma you would expect from a DIPA - heavy on the pine. Nice taste upfront, crisp hops, followed to quickly by a bitter finish. The bitter lingers a bit to long on the aftertaste. Not as smooth as some of my favorite DIPAs. I really like the Big Daddy IPA so I was looking for more here. Wishin I had grabbed a Maximus instead.

At the Yardhouse in VB VA. Pours a hazy gold with nice lacing. Scent is of citrus, honeydew pine. Taste is pine, orange with a hop explosion. Very good! Cheers!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Not a huge aroma coming from the glass, but a respectable amount of grapefruit, resin and other citrus accents. The glass reflects a deep orange-amber with a soft pillowy and off-white head. The lacing on the sides is sticky and tenacious. The liquid is bitter thereafter and also quite tenacious, lasting on my tongue quite a while but it’s not terribly unpleasant.
I may not go out of my way to buy this again, but I wouldn’t turn it down if offered in a social setting.

Decent IIPA. Bitter to the end with an unusual aftertaste. Not bad, just not one I will be revisiting.

Bottle. Pours a copper/Amber color with a nice frothy head. Aroma is caramel and citrucy piney hops. Taste follows the aroma with sone orange and grapefruit notes. Some good lingering hop bitterness on the back end. Medium mouth feel. Very good IPA.

draft at kite/key for Speakeasy event. Pours orange. very similar profile to the Big daddy with regards to aroma and flavor. I got orange and other tree bark aromas. Too bitter and big to drink consistently plus there’s much better IPAs out there these days.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap. Aroma balanced between citrus hops and caramel malt. A bit dank. Taste is mellow, hops largely put in check by the malt. Body is medium plus with soft carb. Just an OK DIPA.
