4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: NOV 1, 2013 9/13/13 version. Pours a translucent, golden orange color with a finger length head that dissipates somewhat quickly and leaves a sticky lacing. Aroma is amazing. Tons of of overly ripe pineapple, some grapefruit, orange, papaya, mango, peach, more tropical fruit notes, pine, tiny bit of breadiness and sweetness from the malts. Taste starts with some bitterness, but more tropical and citrus fruits like pineapple, papaya, apricot, mangos, some floral qualities as well. Was already smooth on the front end, but then gets even smoother and creamier in the middle from the malts that somewhat balance it. Then finishes dry with more tropical and citrus fruits, as well as some pine qualities. Very smooth and crisp finish that cleans the palate and makes you want to take another sip. Has a slight sweetness throughout, which complements the hop characters and gives the hop flavors almost a gummy bear-like taste. High medium, oily body. No alcohol detected at all. From what I read, this beer is made with mostly flavoring hops and not many bittering hops. I agree with this, as there are just massive amounts of juicy fruits in this. Better than Ruination in my opinion. Well done. I may grab another one before it’s taken off the shelves!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Floral, sweet, citrusy. Pours slightly copper. A bit sticky on the palate, roasted malt on the lighter side. Bitter and hoppy but goes down easy.

Although each time it is brewed the flavor palate does change slightly, it is by far one of the best series of DIPAs available. If you can get it, drink it. The absolute freshest beer available when it gets released with a limited shelf life expectancy.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Enjoy by 4.20.15. Whoops, I’m a week late. Clear pale orange, minimal head. Danky resinious hop aromas. Bubble gum, citrus, floral for the hops profile. Otherwise relatively light bodied and easy sipping. Seems to have a bit of funk to it as well. Finish is dry and clean. Definitely feeling it after one. Good stuff.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Has a nice golden color. Has a sweet flavor with a bitter after taste. The after taste could be because it’s has a citrus/grapefruit taste.
