3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle -
This isnít a small beer in any way, but somehow it drinks like a pale ale which is dangerous...for me at least. A really peachy aroma, some light green grapes providing some of the sweetness. As it warms, zesty citrus comes to note. Flavor doesnít wallop you over the head with hops (even though I like them too), but instead itís a balanced approach here. Melon flavors combining with grass, caramel and pine sap. Really a nice beer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle. Pours a hazy golden with a white head. A very good IPA heavy on the pine with some alcohol burn though not as much as would be expected given the high ABV on this one.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance was hazy orangish gold with creamy off white lasting 2 finger head, rings of lacing. Aromas are floral citrus, piney hops then hints of crystal, pale and caramel hops, slight alcohol nose. Taste are sweet mild malt backbone then grapefruit, pine, lemon and orange hops with a touch of alcohol warming. Palate was creamy smooth rich CO2 with medium-full body, then a lasting malty fruity, piney finish. A good solid DIPA but...

I was kind of confused by this one. Big malts and very little happiness. Aroma was sweet and citrusy but the taste wasnít anything to talk about. Malty and lacking hoppiness in my opinion. I was excited to try this but it ended up being kind of meh in my opinion.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy orange with a big head and lots of lacing on the glass.
The aroma is piney with some cascade(y) citrus hop character.... sígot a lil caramel in there, but itís real light and generally the beer smells fresh and hoppy.
The flavor is nicely bitter, itís got some mild astringency but the hops are big and juicy with some floral and grassy notes as well. The maltiness is generally pretty well controlled and kept to the shadows. Itís a touch boozy, but tastes pretty good.
Didnít know this shelf beer would offer such a high boost!

Light head orangish to amber color. Some fruits, and bit of malts in most. Across the palate its not real bitter for a double. Good balanced beer. Nice one.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap @ The Pub at Monte Carlo, Las Vegas. Hazy orange pour, thin white head. Aroma of orange, citrus, spices, some wet dog and a bit swampy yeast. Flavor is bitter hoppy, spicy and with some unfermented sugars. Seems a bit off to me.
