3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to HoffDog43. Strong danky and earthy hop aroma. Slightly citrusy. String malty sweet flavors followed a hop bitterness. A slight alcohol warming. Slightly sweet finish. Not bad for Midwest bier.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Had it out of a bomber. Pours a rich hazy amber hue with a thick as thighs head and an uneven lacing. The aroma is intense hops and the taste is full of hops and malt with an alcohol aftertaste.

10 oz. pour, on tap at the brewery’s tap room. Consumed on 5-18-13. Pleasant, fresh, hoppy aroma features lemon scent. Pours a great, bright orange/brass/gold color. Very good lacing. Superb, citrus-y, double IPA taste; can’t ask for much more from a double IPA. Great, dry finish. Very good, heavy palate. Highly enjoyable beer.

Beautiful copper/orange hue and creamy thin head. I was expecting a full on bitterness barrage but was pleasantly surprised at how smooth it was. Still, plenty of hop happiness with a slight pine aroma...and a great buzz! This is a big beer.

Dark copper color with a medium head. Big aroma of tangerine, grapefruit and perfume. Bracing bitterness. A mix of pine, floral and lemon flavors. Light caramel. Very malty. Farily full bodied.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - thanks Matt! Pours clear orange amber with a medium off-white orangish head and decent lacing. Aroma is pine, caramel, some citrus, bread. Flavor is the same, medium sweet, medium bitter. Kind of a malt bomb, not sure if it is because of age or brewer intent. Medium body, oily mouthfeel. Not bad.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750mL bottle, sent from mista (thanks a lot, Geoff), pours a hazy golden orange with a small off-white head. Aroma is incredibly hoppy, lots of residual sugars, and a little butterscotch. Flavour brings out loads of resinous hops, balanced by a big portion of caramel malts. Lots of residual sugars, but somehow not cloying at all. There’s a perfumy floral quality to it that is situated well. Not the most easy drinking IIPA, but well-constructed nevertheless.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Terrific pour at the brewery taproom. Clings well to the glass with a dark orange hue. Aggressive aroma trains you to think hops but as it’s a double ipa kicks you in the face with initial alcohol sweetness. Alcohol is prevalent in the taste but balanced well with citrus flavors. A solid representation falling just short of the Dissent as Steel Toe’s strongest offering.
