4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22oz bottle, $6.99 at OB Quik Stop. Clear medium amber with a one finger eggshell head. A bit of pine up front in the nose with a good amount of tropical fruit and berry (Nelson--is that you?) with a dash of lightly sweet biscuit malt. Flavor follows suit, adds some alcoholic spice, as expected. Stronger Nelson berry notes in the flavor. I’m happy to add that I’m not getting their house yeast in this, which is nice. Dunno if they used it or not, but I can’t taste it. Dry finish, bitterness peaked at a 4 with the aforementioned warming alcohol. Nelson much more apparent as it warms, as well as fresh grassy dry hops. Full body with light to moderate carbonation. Very tasty.

Enjoy by 03-14-15. Couleur dorée avec un col blanc resistant. Aromes de résines, agrumes, alcool, céréales. L’alcool est mal caché... Pourtant je l’es bu avant la date d’expiration... Je n’est pas beaucoup aimé. Ce n’est pas pour moi...

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
on tap @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear medium amber color, bubbly white head cover, mottled curtain of lace. Aroma of hops. Taste is sweet malt that surrenders to solid, but not overwhelming, pine hops on the swallow, hops and some malt moving together to a long, satisfying finish. An exceptional brew.

Bottle. Amber Body with white head. Aroma is fruity with some pines, I was expecting a little bit stronger aroma but still very good. Taste was nearly perfect fruity and malty with the alcohol very well hidden. Aftertaste is fruity bitter balanced by some malts. Perfect. Great brew.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Enjoy By 12/26/14, had about three weeks before. Pours a golden orange with soapy, off white head. Lively carbonation. Aroma is just straight up grapefruit juice. Freshly squeezed grapefruit juice. Maybe a little underripe pineapple, sweet malt. Taste follows nose, grapefruity, just a little bit of bitterness, not terribly complex. There’s so much malt in here, the bitterness hardly bothers you. Decently carbonated, a medium mouthfeel. For a widely available big IPA, this is pretty good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours amber, large head.
Massively hoppy aroma, big pine, resinous, spicy and herbal notes along with some petrol-like new-world hops. Some light clean malt underneath.
Clean flavours too, with a focus on piny, resinous and more petrol-like hop notes. Some slightly solvent-like booze notes.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
650 ml bottle 02/14/15, shared by Sebilinz. Thanks! Was looking for this for a long time, so the prefect beer for my rating #500!
Deep amber, clear body, with a medium, creamy, white head.
Lovely aroma of crisp citric, floral hops, with a lot of stone fruits, like peach, berries, some tropical fruits.
Taste follows this, also amazing, with a nice, balancing biscuit malt backbone.
Medium, creamy mouthfeel, with a lively carbonation.
Finishes bitter, a bit dry, zesty, fruity, a bit malty.
As delicious as I was hoping for! Very smooth, perfectly balanced and quite easy for this ABV. The hops are just amazing! Not my absolute favourite DIPA I’ve had, but one of the best for sure.
